I tired to "control click" too and it does not do anything ether...There is just the top gray line in the safari window that has the three colored dots and the title of the page you are on, then below that is the line of bookmarks. The gray line that houses the white box where you put addresses and the forward and back buttons is completely missing, so I am not sure what you are telling me to right click (or control click in my case) on.
I appreciate your help! Mavis
You can simulate a right-click by holding down the control key and clicking.
Also, in System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse you should be able to configure the mighty mouse that came with your Mac to enable a right-click.
Failing that, quit Safari and then delete this file:
I deleted that file and threw out the trash...relaunched safari and still no toolbar, still cannot click on the customize toolbar that is light gray under the "view" heading and still cannot get the shortcut key for show toolbar to work and just clicking on show toolbar does not work either. Any other ideas?
Sorry, I misread your original post as saying 'you could still see the back/forward buttons but not the address bar'
Based on the things you've tried so far, one quick test you can do to help narrow down things is to try Safari in another user account. This will help us to know whether your problem is local to your account or system wide. If you don't have another account you can use System Preferences -> Accounts -> \[+\] to create a test one (and \[-\] to remove it if needed)
If the other account has the same problem, try downloading the 10.4.11 combo update (your original post mentioned 10.4.11 in your profile) from the Downloads link at the top of the page and then using [Pacifist|www.charlessoft.com] to extract the Safari package from the update.
After that has been installed, download the Security Update 2007-009 v1.1 and re-run that to update Safari to the latest version.
Let us know how you get on.
