The layout to the newer versions suck in a major way. My brother got stuck with a version that has no Address bar and no button in the upper left to get to any options. You can’t even type in a web site or turn on any tool bars. If you people like it then why not just USE IE as that is what newer versions of Firefox want to emulate. Fire fox is now a browser for dummies.
If he has a brown "Firefox" tab at top left, click options>Menu Bar. That will bring up the menu bar so you can turn on the tool bars. The Bookmarks toolbar is the same as the old Address bar - you can type in addresses or click a bookmark and it puts the address in. Try customizing using the view>toolbars>customize option. That's how I got most of my old buttons back where they were.
