    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'
