Missing top tool bar -- Firefox

by Rod2 / July 1, 2010 10:50 AM PDT

Win 7 FF 3.6 I am missing the top tool bar I think its called. Its the one that has File-Edit-View-Go-Bookmarks-Help. That is missing completely. Somehow I think I run my mouse pointer across the tool bars and it disappeared. I have a different theme installed but of course I can not uninstall/reinstall that because of the missing menu.

The menu bar, navigation bar, bookmarks etc are all checked. I thought of removing & reinstall FF. If I do that will it save my bookmarks and favorites? I found the bookmarks folder but not the .bak folder like the helpful browser tips suggested.

Help is appreciated.

Never mind, after searching I found help on FF support site. I read an unrelated article but it mentions FF in safe mode. There is an option to reset tool bars. I tried it and it worked. Yahoo, happy days are here again!
