Does the top line contain a dropdown called "View"? If so, look for tool bars and anything that refers to navigation. Start checking/unchecking those that might refer to the current address. Most browsers will let you customize these settings.
the particulars: I am running a recent manufacture Compaq desktop. It came with a weird Internet Explorer browser that shows ''Netscape'' home page. If that isn't weird.
Anyway, although I have the View, Address bar checked (top tabs), it will not ever show the current URL - i.e. where the heck you are on the internet, like netscape.com maybe.
How do I restore it?
Should I just try Firefox or something?
Can you have two browsers on your computer and alternate?
Any help would be great.
