How can I sort the Firefox Tools menu dropdown list alphabetically?

The Tools menu has a dropdown list, but entries are not in alphabetical order. Options and some individual add-ons/extensions show up in the list, but not alphabetically. It would be helpful to have them in alphabetical order in the list, however, I can find no option to sort them. Am I missing some hidden, built-in option for sorting? Is there an add-on perhaps that will provide a sorting means? Anyone have a clue? I haven't found anything in my searches on the topic... just regarding sorting bookmarks. But it is the Tools menu dropdown list I want to be able to tweak. Anyone?

There's no built-in option to alter the application menus. The simplest way to do it is using the Menu Editor add-on.

Advanced users familiar with CSS can create a user style and apply it with Stylish.

@ Gingerbread Man....

    Took your suggestion about trying the Menu Editor add-on. So far, it seems to be working. Noted some comments at the add-on's Mozilla page that indicated possible problems with changing the Context menu, and will monitor effects on some changes I made to that menu. But I'm very happy to have been able to re-order my Tools menu drop-down list with this add-on. Thank you so much! God bless!
