Can't login to Twitter; there is no 'preferences' menu in Firefox!

Like many others, Twitter does not let me login (other browsers do). The question was apparently answered by 'removing Twitter cookies from preferences menu'. Unfortunately, this is no answer since Firefox does not have a 'Preferences' menu at least at a top level. There are 'Settings', accessed by the three parallel bars in the top right, but still no 'preferences'. Please can someone post more accurate and detailed instructions?

OK, to get Twitter working so you can log into Twitter.com from Firefox, click on the "three lines" icon in the top right of the top bar of Firefox. Then select the 'gear' / Options Icon, and then the 'Mask'/Privacy icon in the left column. Then click on the highlighted link in the middle of the text that appears "remove individual cookies". Scroll down to Twitter.com, click on it to select, and then 'remove selected'. Then you can log into Twitter.com

I still have this problem with Twitter, and I have cleared history and cookies. What to do?
