Using Firefox I was viewing a PDF file embedded within a web page, with the toolbar available. After right-clicking to deselect the toolbar (I was testing something) I cannot find a way to reinstate them. Since the toolbar is enabled by right clicking on the toolbar area, when it's disabled, it's not obvious how to reenable it.

When the toolbars have been disabled and no longer visible, how do you reinstate them?

Version info:

Firefox 3.6.3  
Adobe Reader 9.3  
Kubuntu 10.04

The general shortcut to reset the toolbars is Alt-F8 (Windows) or Ctrl-Shift-F8 (Unix), see here (Adobe Reader 8) and How to reset toolbars in Adobe Reader 9.

Pressing F8 brings back the Toolbar on Windows (Firefox 3.6.3, Adobe Reader 9.3.2).

Hmmm, thanks for answering, but that didn't work for me. Is that for a Linux OS? – Grundlefleck Jun 20 '10 at 13:29
No, this is on Windows 7, sorry, Linux might be different... – Palmin Jun 20 '10 at 14:57
Found something else (see edit) – Palmin Jun 20 '10 at 15:08
Ctrl+Shift+F8 works, cheers! – Grundlefleck Jun 20 '10 at 16:04
