    What version are you using? If it's not the latest, upgrading via Software Update might be the best option.

    The command, on 4.0.2, should be "Show Toolbar." Is that not present as well?

    The command-key equivalent should be command-shift-| (the vertical bar above the return key)

    i have a macbook pro. 0S X ,10.5. and i have safari 3.0.4. its not the toolbar that disappeared. the refresh button and all is still there, but the search bar for the URL is gone. i have the button "show toolbar" tho.

    i also tried deleting safari off of my laptop, but i keep downloading a safari version that wont work on my laptop. i tried download safari 3.0.4 again, but when i open up a window, the search bar is still gone.

    where can i get software updates?

    You need to Right Click on the area at the top of the Window (or control-click with a single button) and select customize. There will be the buttons you can drag back to your toolbar.

    To remove the preference, look in your Home Folder/Library/Preferences and look for anything named Safari, and remove it.

    Try to install this version of Safari on your system. Also, if deleting the com.apple.Safari.plist file doesn't help you could try to use the Reset Safari command under the Safari menu.
