I have the firefox logo, but when I click on it, I get a menu offering restore,minimize, close. There is no menu item for options. How do I get to options?

Chosen solution

That is the Windows title bar and not the orange 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
