Oi!... what`s happened to my right hand scroll bar ? ? ? ? ?

Just updated FF to 38.1  ( as recommended by Avast )... and although pages of FF I open from the original Desktop icon.... pages I open when clickiing on Linky`s in the forum don`t have a top tool bar... and also don`t have a right hand scroll bar ... so I can`t "do!" anything with it.. ( can`t bookmark it ) or (Copy and paste )... It will scroll using the up and down arrows though....
Wassup with it... should I go back to previous version of FF  ?
(running Windows Vista Home Premium)...

Nope.... when I clicked on the linky in chitchat for "budget"... the page appeared... but no top toolbar and no scroll bar on the right... however, there was a "border" at the top of the page... with the address bar...
When I pressed Fn and Fn11 key.. they disappeared, until I pressed Fn and Fn11 again...

Hmm.... then I have to install all my add-ons again...  Cry
As I sed in the opening post.... it works fine from the desktop icon.... like.. now.. I got the scroll bar and the toolbar at the top...
but if I click on a linky they disappear...(from the linky... not the original page )...

Try restarting in safe mode (FF not win), you can do so from the help menu.
If it works then it is an issue with one of your addons.

Nope.... that didn`t work either.... same result. when I clicked on the "budget" linky... no "menu bar"... If I right click on the address bar... it shows the menu bar with a tick beside it... so "it should be there"...

Just un-installed FF38.01 and downloaded and re-installed FF38.0    still the same....
Strangely... all my addons are available, including Stylish, Ghostrey, Lightshot, Ant video downloader and Xmarks. 
My "home page" is nicely coloured, courtesy of Stylish... and so is PlusNet....

And so it goes on...... now the "address" window has disappeared from the address bar... the "addons" are still there...
so.. decided that, instead of uninstalling... I would try "erasing".. all refs to Mozilla Firefox.  including the maintenance folder... then doing a re-boot... then doing a new install of FF36.01 from my saved downloads.
There is a "menu" bar at the top of this page... BUT... the "address window" is still missing...
totally stumped as to what to do next.... ( I have sent a message back to Mozilla via feedback... but don`t expect I will get an answer ... )...

Still not fixed the FF problem... BUT... am now using Palemoon... which doesn`t seem to have the same problem.... it`s an old copy... so maybe when I get the updated version the problem MAY appear...
for now.. just have to use Palemoon.....

Well,... Sunday morning... and .... nowt else to do... so... uninstalled FF..... uninstalled Palemoon.... ran CCLEANER.... ran Eusing Reg Cleaner.... shut down... re-booted ... re-installed FF38.01 from the previous download (yesterday).... and.....
Well,... all I can say is that I have, at least got my address panel back....  ( when clicking on secondary linky`s ).. ( As previous )...  Still no Scroll Bar on the right hand side... and still no menu bar, ( despite being ticked when right click, as previously mentioned)
Never had any problems with my addons ( as listed ) before... ... ... ...  ...  ...  ...  ( all bona fide FF addons )....

Did you TRY this?
It would have been the same as removing all the addons/settings and a lot quicker.
My issue was with ABE, but that was pages not rendering properly, just text showing
