Firefox Menu Bar
I am new to Linux but have been using Firefox for Windows for almost ten years. I now want to use Firefox Desktop, Version 26 (I think) in Linux (Ubuntu).
I cannot get the Menu Bar (File, Edit, Help, etc.) to show. In Firefox support, in the section “Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars”, it states:
“Most toolbars can be shown or hidden depending on your needs. To show or hide a toolbar, right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip and check or uncheck it in the pop-up menu.
Menu Bar: This toolbar at the top of the Firefox window contains the browser menus (File, Edit, Help, etc.). Hiding the Menu Bar will make the Firefox button appear which contains a simplified menu.”
When I right-click on an empty section of the Tab Strip, all I get is options for the Navigation Toolbar, the Bookmarks Toolbar, and the Add-on Bar; no Menu Bar option. Also, since my Menu Bar is “hidden,” I can't find the Firefox button which contains a simplified menu. What does the Firefox button look like?
When I go to support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox and try to download Firefox 26 I'm told that "Congrats! You’re using the latest version of Firefox."
Since I presume my Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox can be updated only when an updated package is released, I checked for distro updates and there were none at all. Do I have to wait for a Linux update?
I certainly will appreciate any help.
