    For chrome, and firefox, please try disabling your addons.

    Next, can you please tell me the browser window size, as well as the overall desktop size?
    Are you using anything to increase the native rendering of windows/ui elements?
    This would be under Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

    I'm running Windows 8.1 and I've got Chrome and Firefox installed, I use them daily in working with customer sites. Had I noticed that the site builder button was gone, I'd have raised some hell, trust me.

    Its important to note that Site Builder requires a minimum resolution to display the site builder interface/buttons is 770px wide. If your browser window is too small, it won't display at all.

      Ok. I found the Band-Aid fix.

      put this in your css_additional.css

      html.touch .edit-switch-container {
          display: block;

      The reason it is not showing up is because whatever script vb is using to detect browser capability is saying the environment is touch capable even if it is not.
      And vB wont show site builder if your system has touch (really!?).

      Then again, in this age where almost all new computers have touch built in, the reason behind hiding site editor because the environment has touch capability is something I can not even begin to comprehend.
