    I've started experiencing a strange problem with Firefox 1.0. After running it for a while, the bookmark toolbar disappears replaced by a small set of double arrows that when clicked opens the same toolbar as a vertical menu. When I exit the browser and open it again, everything is fine. I've googled, but haven't found anything (admittedly, I have not spent a lot of time searching yet). The OS is Win2000 Pro. I have not seen this problem in previous releases.

    Any ideas?

    Well, I have only seen this once before, but is was on XP and was an earlier (0.9?) version; at any rate, a reinstallation fixed it.

    Personally, I use a hardened copy of Mozilla Suite 1.3 to browse with.

    Try the reinstall and see if that does it. If not, let us know and we'll try to help.

    Good luck!

    I believe that a keyboard short cut does that. I don't know what it is, but it's happened to me a few times when the kids have hit the keyboard.
