Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

I have the same problem but found the problem. The "Menu Bar" is hidden by default behind the orange firefox button if you click it and then Customize > Menu Bar click it and it should give you back the min, max, and close buttons
It seems like Firefox is copying what Google Chrome has been doing, hiding all the used-to-be-easily-accessed menus, e.g. File, Edit, etc. That's one of the option I don't like about Google Chrome.
