Tools menu missing in FF4 action menu

more options

There is no Tools menu in the new FF4 dropdown menu (action tab). Since most add ons can be only accessed through tools menu, this new cool dropdown menu is useless.

{ Ctrl + Shft + A } opens the Add-ons Manager tab.

You can access the Tools menu by hitting the Alt to temporarily display the old Menu Bar, then hit the T key to open Tools. The other Menu Bar items can be opened by hitting the appropriate "hotkey" - like F for File.

that's a valid workaround, the-edmeister, thanks!

That said, this seems like a gross oversight in FF4 development - there are many extensions that only have tools menu access, so hiding that menu behind this sort of misdirection seems unwise.

col-el - thanks for the links - New Old Menu seems to do exactly what I would like to see built in to firefox....
