To get the Address Bar back, right click on the faded address words. Then make sure "Lock the toolbars" isn't checked. The you should be able to mouse over the webpage upto the toolbar and pull it down.
Hope it helps,
Recently, I noticed the address bar in my windows explorer (WinXP SP2) disappeared. I went to view>toolbars>address bar, but all that shows up is a little tan box that has a faded "address" written in it. Can't click it or anything, totally useless. What happened and how do I get it back? Oh, and recently Windows decided my "My documents" folder was a music folder. How do I get it to stop identifying folders as "pictures" or "music" ?
