All is fine here, and I have several windows open.

I am on version 77.0.1 (Tools>options, type in ver in the "find it for you box")
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.


Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

The one that is not there, and you havent used for years is very useful as it has "bookmarks" as wel las taking you to the "sync" option.

sync is good if you get a new computer, you download firefox on your new computer, sign into sync, and everything you had on the old computer firefox pages is now on the new one. Or if like me your computer "goes totaly wrong" and you have to start again.


If you want to get the one that is not there back do the following.

Top right of screen there are 3 horizontal lines click once on them.
Move the cursor down to "customise" click on it. (a big window will open)
Bottom left of big window is a tick box called "Title bar" click on that and watch what happens. Really easy to do.

thanks i remebered its a right click in the blank space at the top rh side :lol:
as i say my brain will shut down with computers that dont play ball
i think its the way my brain is wired
i dont get stressed at all but if one thing is out off line im ok no problem two out off place no problem but at least one needs sorting as soon as
three out off place i get very uneasy quite agitated and needs sorting
now i am not talking trivial things where life will carry on but things i can easily deal with but wont play ball like a say bill problem or difficult application but have the skills and ability to resolve eventually they will stress me but only a bit as the solution is worked out

on the other hand computer is a perhaps 6 because i will run about like a headless chicken not having a logical easy path in my head with solutions comming naturally :lol: :lol:
