Skip to comments.Can't get address bar back in Firefox (VANITY)
Posted on 05/11/2011 10:42:16 AM PDT by library user
My address bar in Firefox has turned into a google search box.
I can't go the "about:config" route to fix since I would need the address bar to do that.
I checked for viruses and get none.
I unlocked the toolbars, thinking maybe the address bar was hidden and could be dragged out. No dice.
Any suggestions most appreciated.
Here's a screen cap. Hopefully it shows up.
Try going to View-Toolbars-Customize and select Restore Defaults. Will remove other custom toolbar setup.
If not, may have to uninstall Firefox to remove registry artifacts and then re-install.
Okay. Go to All Programs, scroll to Mozilla Firefox, click and a drop down menu will have Firefox (safe mode). Click that and your menu should have the Return to all Original Settings. Let me know.
If you still want to get to about:config, just create a shortcut that contains:
“C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” about:config
Assuming of course, you have firefox in that particular path otherwise point it to where you have firefox installed.
Switch to MS Internet Explorer.
Dump the Google toolbar.
Any suggestions most appreciated.:-)
Will remember that for the future.
Yours was the only suggestion I hadn’t tried (I didn’t see it before I re-installed FF).
Used Revo Uninstaller and totally removed Firefox. Then re-installed it.
We lost some bookmarks but other than that all went well.
Thanks to everyone for their knowledge and tips!
This may help you get your bookmarks back:
Very helpful. Thanks!
