FIREFOX/WINDOWS 7: When using Firefox, where is the bar that includes options of "file", "edit", "view", "favorites" and "tools".? It disappeared! When I access Internet Explorer, no problem, these options are all available and visible, but on Firefox (which I prefer) it seems to have disappeared.

Right-click on the little sliver above the address bar and select "Menu Bar". This should bring it back.

Try f11, perhaps twice.

Alt-f?

Alt will show the menu. Then go to view->Toolbars, and make sure Menu bar is checked.

It's possible, but very, very unlikely, that you inadvertently installed a compact-menu extension like Compact Menu or Tiny Menu. If this is what happened, disabling the extension will solve the problem.
