I use Google Chrome as my default browser but a recent inadvertent action resulted in New Tab appearing with it & then displacing it immediately. I found some instructions for getting rid of it but the first step is to type in 'the location bar' the words 'about:config'.

My problem, as always, is the first step: where/what is the 'location bar' ?

Location bar is where you see the address of the website. Right now it should have "" in it.

type Alt+D and you'll have the cursor right into it.

it's the bar in which you type URLs.
