    I am running Safari on ios 7. The bottom bar with nav buttons, share button, etc is missing. Also, the top bar will not disappear when scrolling so I am not in full screen mode. I have tried resetting Safari history and removing data in Settings-Safari. I have powered off. Nothing will bring back the bottom bar. Its driving me crazy. It worked for a while but just stopped. I appreciate any help. Thanks

    At the bottom you only see "Private" when history is deleted. There's nothing else. The share button as well as nav buttons are at the top left. As far as I know this bar isn't supposed to disappear on an iPad.

    Safari looks like this in iOS 7 on iPad:

    At the top, you'll find the signs you're looking for.

    I lost the bottom bar when I upgraded to 7.03 I think. I know it was present in 7.0 along with a "send to Instapaper" option at the bottom.

    I never had a bottom bar in iOS 7. I didn't use Instapaper, though.
    In Settings - Safari: "Show Favorites Bar" is enabled? Also in Settings - Safari - Advanced: Javascript?

    If it's working the same way I tried it, Instapaper should be in your favorites bar. If it's not visible at first, tap the three dots at the end of the bar:

    This is the bottom bar in Safari on the iPhone version of iOS 7. As far as I know it's never been on the iPad's iOS 7 version of Safari.

    On the iPhone, the bottom bar only appears when you are scrolled all the way to the top of the site. The top bar is always present in portrait mode, however it will move out of the way in landscape when you scroll down on a page, only reappearing when you scroll back to the top.

    The dark gray color in your illustration means that Safari is in private browsing mode. The bars will be a translucent white when in normal mode.

    The pic is from the web, just used for illustration of what buttons I am talking about. My iPad Safari wont go into full screen mode either. The top bar is always present. I don't have an iPhone and I know what I used to have on my iPad and I used to have those buttons appear. Thanks for the suggestions.
