IDE missing toolbar on old Mac with lion OS 10.7.5

Hello, I'm trying use this old MacBook for the Arduino programming. It may be a lost cause.

Every IDE version I have tried to install and run does not have the toolbar in the IDE if it starts up.

The latest OS that can be loaded on this is Lion 10.7.5. I have tried different versions of the Arduino IDE and tried removing Java and reinstalling java. I can not find a combination that seems to work.

Is there a combination IDE, java that will work with lion OS 10.7.5?


This was operator error. I was expecting the Arduino popup window to look like the windows version. I'm not used to Mac Os. FYI, I have it working(compile,downloading to board) with Arduino 1.8.5...At least Blinky worked.
