What is the Firefox menu button, where is it and what if I don't have it?

Posted

I am still not able to figure how to get to the Firefox general page. I do have a menu bar but nothing there helps me. One of the answers to my previous (which I am still trying to complete) talked about the Firefox menu button but I can't figure out what it is, where it is and what do I do if I don't

On Windows XP the default is to show the menu bar and not the Firefox menu button.

You get the orange Firefox menu button when the menu bar is hidden.

  • Firefox menu button > Options
  • View > Toolbars (press F10 to display the menu bar)
  • right-click empty toolbar area

See:

  • Press the F10 key or tap the Alt key to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily if the menu bar is hidden.
