Hello. The new computer issues keep coming.

 

I have a new laptop running Windows 7. I downloaded Firefox.

 

How do I tell what version it is?

 

How do I get my Bookmarks Toolbar to display along the top of the screen?

 

Thanks.

To find the version of Firefox

 

1. Click on the "hamburger" button near the top right corner then click on the question mark icon as shown.

2. In the next window, click on About Firefox.

Thanks for the help.

 

Pressing the alt key displays the menu. Is there a way to get it to stay in view? Also I clicked Bookmarks Toolbar on the View menu but it is not there. I have something called recently visited but the bookmarks that were along the top of my screen are not there. Is there a way to put them there?

 

Thanks.

Why don't you post some screenshots with an explanation of what you want to achieve.  Maybe I understand what you want better.

I apologize. I am not up to speed on screen shots.

 

Here is what I want to achieve.

 

1. On my Vista computer Firefox kept the menu displayed at the top. On the Windows 7 computer I have to click alt every time I want to see the menu at the top.

 

2. On my Vista computer the Bookmarks toolbar showed the bookmarks that were on that toolbar along the top of the screen just under the URL address field. (It may have been just over.) How do I get them to show there permanently as before?

 

Thanks. I hope I was clear.

1. If you look again at my last 2 screenshots you'll see Menu Bar.  Click on that and the Menu Bar will be displayed all the time.

 

2. If you want your bookmarks to show on your Bookmarks Toolbar then you have to put them there.  For example, if you want to put a website there you can drag and drop it like...

...click on the tab and drag it to the Bookmarks Toolbar.  That's it!

Hal06, here I found this for ya:  

It is quite easy if you have done it with another browser even like IE.
