I have been looking for an about tab to find the new version number. No luck. Running Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

Do you mean Help > About to see which Firefox version you have?

  • Press the F10 key or tap the Alt key to bring up the hidden Menu bar.

Firefox 29 and later versions have the Australis interface that looks different than the user interface in Firefox 28 and older versions.

  • With the Australis interface the orange Firefox menu button has been replaced by the three bar Menu button at the far right end of the Navigation Toolbar
    A consequence of this new menu button is that you no longer can hide the Navigation Toolbar
  • There is a star like button to the right end of the search bar on the Navigation Toolbar to bookmark the current web page and a "Show your bookmarks" button next to it to open the Bookmarks in a drop down menu
  • It is still possible to have the menu bar visible via the right-click context menu on the toolbars to have menus like the the Bookmarks menu

You can find Help in the 3-bar Firefox menu button as the question mark at the bottom right of the drop-down list next to the Customize item.
