Yesterday, I have no idea how it happened but I was in the middle of working when the ability to open a new tab vanished... no more + sign available to click. Appreciate your help!

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

As a temporary workaround, you should be able to use one of these methods to open a new tab:

  • Ctrl+t
  • (menu bar) File > New Tab
    If you do not display the classic menu bar full time, tap the Alt key or F10 function key to activate it
  • right-click Windows 7 Taskbar icon > Open new tab

As for where it went, hmm, if this wasn't the result of a new add-on or updated add-on, you may need to go into the Customize mode to look for a misplaced "+" button, or use the Restore Defaults button at the bottom of the Customize tab to reset toolbars back to their original layout. More info: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars.

Any progress?

J, Please tell me how to restore my toolbar Bookmarks. I can bring them up but only temporarily. I want them permanently there like they were before. Thank you J! I may have to recreate them, but am lazy! gina

Hi Gina, to turn different bars on and off, you can use one of these methods to show the toolbar list and select the desired bars there:

To turn on the Bookmarks Toolbar, Menu Bar, or other bars, click it on the list. Or "uncheck" them to turn them off.
