Hi,

I have a new computer and installed Firefox as my web browser. I have also Firefox on my old computer and could by signing in to my Firefox accounts get all my settings and bookmarks in the Firefox on the new computer. On my old computer after opening Firefox there is a bar at the top with from left to right, File, Edit, History, Bookmarks, Tools, and Help. After opening Firefox on my new computer, that bar is not there. Can you please tell me how to get that bar also on my new computer in Firefox.

Thanks, Bert Schmitz

Hello Bert,

The bar you are talking about is called the "Menu Bar".

If you want that bar there permanently, you can go to 3-bar menu => Customize and at the bottom click on "Toolbars" and then click on "Menu Bar".

Then click on the blue "Done" button.

If you don't need/want to see the menu bar all the time, you can just press the Alt key on your keyboard, whenever you need the menu bar.

Thanks, McCoy,

Never thought of looking at the bottom of the screen in the customize page.

Don't feel bad;   hardly anybody does (which is not surprising).
