When I log into my webmail, a drop-down shows my email address. How do I stop that from happening?

Thank you for your reply. I have the three lines at the top, but I don't have "Preferences" in the menu. Something else?

UPDATE: Since I don't have "Preferences", I tried "Options" instead and found the settings you recommended. All fixed, no more drop-downs on my email addresses as I log in! Thank you! I'm very new to Firefox (Day 2 since I installed it), so I'm doing a lot of wandering around trying to find things. I appreciate your help!
