The file tab used to have an option to close one tab at a time. It is no longer available in file. If i close using the "X" it closes all of the tabs out.

Some menu entries in the main menu bar are hidden if you use the mouse and only appear if you use the keyboard to open the menu (Bug 626825).
You can see the difference if you use Alt+F to open the File menu or other menus like the Edit menu (Alt+E) and Bookmarks menu (Alt+B) and compare that to what you see if you use the mouse to open the menu after you have made the menu bar visible by tapping Alt or by pressing F10.


Add code to userChrome.css below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

/* Always show menu entries with class="show-only-for-keyboard" */
#navigator-toolbox menuitem[class="show-only-for-keyboard"]:not([hidden="true"]){ display:-moz-box !important; }
