Just go to Control Panel and there try to find the tool bar.
If it is not there, try uninstalling Firefox and everything's associated with it, then USE IE10. It's BETTER!!!

SOURCE: mozilla firefox keeps asking me to reboot, even when I try to rem

Hello,
This is due to the registry entries that are installed with Firefox. Any major changes to the system registry requires a reboot. However, a reboot in this case is not immediatelly necessary. You can ignore this error and reboot later if you are working on something, or close out all programs and reboot the computer.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks, Raph30

Remove toolbars from dropdown menu


Clear the Dropdown Address Bar For security and privacy's sake, you might want to clear the drop-down address bar in your Firefox browser. You can do so in just a few steps. Note that these entries will not be retrievable after they're deleted.
Launch Firefox browser and click your cursor inside the address bar. Begin to type in the address that you wish to delete, but do not press "Enter" or click "Go." You will see the drop-down list auto-populate. Using the up or down keys on your keyboard, scroll down to the item you wish to remove from the listing. Press the "Delete" key on your keyboard to remove it permanently. Your browser will now be free of specific items that you wish to remove. Remove Unwanted Toolbars Permanently Web toolbars are add-on programs that enhance functionality of your browser. Usually they improve your online searches, offer quick access buttons to favorite websites and some provide pop-up blockers. However, there are spyware programs that only pose as toolbars. Yet other toolbars, although not harmful, install themselves without your consent. You can easily remove these unwanted toolbars permanently from your PC.

Go to the "Start" menu and click "Control Panel." Click "Uninstall a program" under the Programs area. Scroll through the list of currently installed programs, select the toolbar that you want to remove and click "Uninstall." Follow the step-by-step prompts to uninstall the toolbar. Restart your computer when prompted at the end of the removal. b> Firefox Launch Mozilla Firefox, click the "Tools" drop-down menu, select "Add-ons" and click "Extensions." Click the toolbar you want to remove in the new window. Click the "Uninstall" button. Restart the browser.
Clear the Drop Down Menu in Mozilla Firefox b> Firefox's "autocomplete" feature helps speed up your Web browsing experience. Whenever you type in the browser's location bar, a drop-down menu appears. This menu may contain a mixture of previously visited websites and entries from your bookmarks collection. Although this feature makes it easier to revisit old sites, you may want to clear this drop-down menu when it becomes too large. Clearing the menu can reduce its and prevent others from viewing your browsing history if you share the computer.

Launch Firefox and click "Tools" to display a drop-down menu. Click the "Clear Recent History" option to view the "Clear Recent History" pop-up window. Click "Details." A list of options appears. Remove the check marks from all options, and place a check mark next to "Browsing & Download History." Click "Clear Now." b> Clear Bookmarks Click the "Tools" button again, and then click "Options" to display the "Options" window. Click "Privacy" and find the "Location Bar" section near the bottom of the window. Click the drop-down box in that section and click "Nothing." Click "OK."

When loading Yahoo! 5 copies of Yahoo! Mail are loaded.


Well, you have not mentioned the version of firefox. To check it out, click on 'Help' from the menu bar and click 'About Mozilla Firefox'. But Im sure you will have atleast version 3.0.3.

This issue normally occur when 'show my window and tabs from last time' is enabled. To overcome this do the following

1. click on 'Tools' from the menu bar and goto 'Option'
2. That will open the 'Option window'
3. Click the tab that says 'Main'
4. You will find the heading 'startup'
5. Below that you will find 'When firefox start', click the drop down that says 'Show my home page'. (Below that you will find 'Home page', if you would like to change the homepage you can change their itself
6. Now click 'ok' and reopen it.

NB. This steps are based on Mozilla firefox 3.0.3

To answer your second question about uninstallation failed, this issue happen due to log files or .dll files are missing hence the uinstaller could not be loaded for that file.

As an alternative download the following file (revo uninstaller)
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

(click on download revo uninstaller free)

You can then install revo cleaner on your system. After you have install this file, open revo by clicking from the shortcut from your desktop. You will find 'yahoo' in the list. highlight it and right click you will find, 'remove/uninstall' click it. You would not find a new window, select the one that says 'Advance' now follow the onscreen instruction to remove it. You can try this tool for any software that you are unable to remove it
