Help. My Arrow Tool Is Broken! - Adobe Illustrator Macintosh

I don't know what happened, but in Illustrator 9 my black arrow tool is suddenly only capable of selecting and moving objects. It has lost its free transform abilities and I cannot even resize text boxes. The boxes at the corners of the selection are solid rather than hollow. How did this happen and how do I fix it? It is really annoying not to be able to resize text boxes and to have to click onto the free transform tool any time I want to change the size of anything. Thanks!...
