What makes so angry these problem do not mention intervals of a bijection map, continuity, definess, differenciability,.... Makes me so angry. I JUST CANNOT DO PROBLEMS LIKE THIS. So I am going to assume you have a differenciable and invertible function over the entire number line.

I presume you mean,
$g(x)=\int_0^{f(x)} f^{-1}(t)dt$
Then you can view $g$ as a composition,
$h\circ f$
Where,
$h=\int_0^x f^{-1}(t)dt$
Thus,
$h$ is differenciable.
Thus we can use chain rule theorem,
$g'=f'\cdot (h'\circ f)$
But by fundamental theorem,
$h'=f(x)$
Thus,
$g'=f'\cdot (f\circ f^{-1})$
But,
$f\circ f^{-1}=x$ the identity map.
Thus,
$g'=xf'$
