Right click on an empty spot on whatever tool bar you have at the top and put a check in front of 'menu bar' on the drop down menu.

I don't have an option for "menu bar" in the drop down.

If you are referring to when you use Firefox then do as Bob says once you have opened FF but right at the top of the screen. Mine top is blue I presume yours will be as I rarely personalise stuff like that

The very top of the page (probably blue) won't bring up the menu.

Right Click anywhere on a blank gray area at the top of the page and it should bring up the appropriate menu. Then put a checkmark in front of Menu Bar.

I think someone suggested hitting F11 here at one time. At least, that is what I have marked down to restore toolbar. Won't hurt to try it.

Thanks, it finally showed up, and is ok.!

Phyllis is absolutely correct regarding F11. It will extend the browser window, and return it to normal. As far as I know it is generic on all browsers. Right now on FF I am viewing this site page with no other exposure. By moving the cursor to the top of the screen the basic Toolbar and Address Bar drop down for use, then disappear again.

Every user should try it on all their browsers to see the potential benefit of using F11. Trying it will not hurt anything.

Yup, it works. Now you see it now you don't.
