Is there any way to put the menu icon back in the upper left hand part of the title bar?

more options

I stayed on Firefox 27 until today, and just installed 43. I HATE the new location of the menu icon in the righthand side of the toolbar with the website url box and search box etc., in it. The title bar is blank other than the "minimize" "full screen/embedded window" and "close" icons. The menu icon takes up precious space on the toolbar that has the url box & search box and all my other add on icons on it already.

Is there ANY way to put the menu icon back on the blank title bar? Frankly I liked the entire layout better when it was the orange firefox button up in the lefthand corner, including the way it displayed when you selected the dropdown marker.

Thanks in advance for help with this!

Sorry, but the menu button is one of the only elements on the toolbar that cannot be moved.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

You can look at the Classic Theme Restorer extension to customize the appearance and restore features used in older Firefox versions.

  • You can check out the settings of the CTR extension via its Options/Preferences button on the "Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" page.
  • You can find extra toolbar buttons and more toolbar settings in Customize (3-bar Firefox menu button > Customize)

By default the Firefox Titlebar is hidden which allows the Tab-strip to rise almost to the top of a maximized window. When the window is restored down the Tab-strip sits a little bit lower.

If you want to see the Titlebar you can turn it on. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-firefox-controls-buttons-and-toolbars#w_turn-on-the-title-bar-menu-bar-or-bookmarks-toolbar
