Hello skane,

You can turn the toolbar back on in Safari by going to View > Show Toolbar.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions. Kind regards,

I clicked on the show toolbar option, but it still did not show the address field. The rest of the toolbar (back arrow, add bookmark button, etc.) is visible, but where I type an address isn't. All I see is the name of the webpage on top of the browser. I think the problem started when I tried to copy a url from the address bar, but I must have clicked on something wrong. I've tried right-clicking on the name of the webpage that appears on the top, but that hasn't worked either.

Hmm, let's try something to see if we can get the default toolbar back. Go to View menu > Customize Toolbar... and drag the default toolbar that pops down in the window up to where the window's toolbar is. This should reset it to the defaults.

I hope this helps! Let me know how it works for you. Kind regards,
