Buttons from address bar and toolbar disappear in Mozilla firefox
  

Hello people, I am facing a very unusual problem with Mozilla firefox which is installed on my computer. All the buttons from the toolbar and the address bar disappear. This started happening few days back after installing Opera on my system. I am able to surf the Internet using Mozilla without any problems but as the buttons are missing, it creates problems while navigating. Therefore if anybody knows why Buttons from address bar and toolbar disappear in Mozilla firefox then please share some information about the same which may help me in solving the issue. Any suggestions regarding the topic are welcome. For additional information the operating system which I am using is Windows XP.

As you have mentioned that the problem started only after installation of the Opera browser, it is possible that it is conflicting with the current installation of the Mozilla firefox. All the browsers when installed want to become default browser of the system. Due to which the browsers conflict with each other. It is possible that the opera must have corrupted some files of Firefox. Hence try and remove opera from the computer and remove all the files and folders related to opera from the computer. Once all the files and the keys related to opera are removed then check if Firefox works properly or not.

There is a high possibility that the computer which you are using is infected with some virus which is creating problems while using the browser. Virus's have the tendency to get linked with the files which are associated to the application which is used frequently. If such a situation occurs then the application whose file is infected will not work properly. Hence scan the computer with some updated antivirus and check for all the infected files. If there are any infected files found, quarantine or repair them. After taking appropriate measures, check if the browser works properly or not.

Have you installed any toolbar on the browser? If yes, then it could be the reason behind such a weird behavior of the browser. Whenever any toolbar is installed on the browser, it replaces the original files which are associated to the default toolbar of the browser. If such a toolbar is uninstalled later, then all the associated files are removed. Therefore the files associated to the default toolbar of the browser are missing on the system and hence buttons of the address bar and the toolbar disappear on the browser. Uninstall the current installed version of the browser and then reinstall it again.

Try and update the current version of the browser which is installed on the computer. Many times the files which are corrupted or missing from the system are replaced during the update process. To update the Mozilla firefox version which is installed on the computer, open the browser and click on Help. Now select the "Check for Update" option. Now the browser will check for all the updates which are available for the browser. If there are any available updates, then download and install it. Updating the browser might solve the problem.

Sometimes the applications and the add-ons which are installed on the browser create problems in proper functioning of the browser. If the application which is installed on the browser it self is corrupt then it will corrupt the files of the browser. To be sure if the problem is due to the application and the add-on which are installed, open the firefox in safe mode. In safe mode all the applications and the add-ons are disabled. Hence if the browser works properly in safe mode, then find and remove the application/add-on which is creating problem. To start the browser in safe mode type "firefox.exe/safemode" in run tab.
