A short power outage shut off my computer. When I restarted and attempted to go online, I got this:


As you can see, the tool bar across the top of the screen has disappeared. The tool bar is there as normal until I open the browser, then there is none. This stops me from opening any tabs. Anybody here familiar enough with Firefox to tell me how to fix this?

Steve I've never had this happen before, but if you haven't done so yet, and I bet you have, try a re-boot first, and see how it goes. Other than that, you might have to un-install Firefox and then re-install it, hopefully that'll take care of it.

You have either entered full screen mode or lost the menu bar. Try moving your cursor to the top of the screen or pressing the alt key. if one of these works, you must go into the menu and make it permanent.
Good luck.

If you use a router for your high speed,try turning it off for 10-20 seconds and the restart it.It should clear it's little memory.

I used Google to get to the Mozilla website for a fix. You move the cursor to the upper right corner and the little icon with three lines appears. Click it, then click Full Screen to shut it off. That's all it took.

You did not specify whether you had a Mac or PC. If you have a Mac use "Command Q" to stop any program executing. PC users probably have the same procedure somewhere.

It's a Mac. Command Q just closes Firefox. When you reopen it (open a new window) it's still full screen, no tool bar showing. You have to shut off Full Screen as I described to get your tool bar back. It's no big deal once you find out how to do it.
