about:config setting for making the menubar visible


Hi, I've been trying to customize firefox for deployment. I need to be able to enable the menubar by default on firefox. I know how make the menubar visible via the orange firefox button but that's not a feasible option on a group of computers. I've looked through about:config, searched and googled, but I can't seem to find a setting that will make the menubar visible by default. Any help would be appreciated.

This needs chrome code not a config change.

You could also consider the possibility of using ESR as a method of reducing maintenance, and maybe use of a .cfg file to lock the installations http://kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences
