Where do i find the "tools" function on Firefox 5?

Posted

Cant seem to find the TOOLS function. Can anyone help with this, has it been advantageously replaced with something else? Under Options there is nothing similar. What happened with this feature?

Would appreciate someone responding to this.

I do not find any tutorial specifically designed for FF 5 or am I not looking in the right places?

Chosen solution

The same as with Firefox 3.6 and 4.0 when the Menu Bar is hidden, by hitting the Alt key to temporarily reveal the Menu Bar with File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools and Help menus.

Please let us know if this helped you or not, unlike with 4 of the other 5 threads that you started and were responded to, where it seems that you didn't even return to see the answers which were provided.
