Recently, I lost the noScript icon from the toolbar area of Firefox and cannot figure out how to recover it.

If I go to a site with some java is disabled, I see an added yellow section above search bar at bottom of window with an "Options" popup along the right edge of this line, but once I enable all the java sites on a page, the "Options" line goes away and I cannot see the menu to turn them off or enable scripts globally anymore. This used to be available via an icon up in the toolbar area which gave a popup menu to turn off sites etc.

How can I get the icon back again in the tool bar? I cannot find any configuration item to control its visibility.

Check this. Alternatively go to the NoScript Preferences in the Firefox menu (see this and then "To view which add-ons you have installed:", then Addons and NoScript), and enable icons from there
