Firefox use to have only 2 lines at the top - the Firefox menu with the tabs besides, and another line the navigation toolbar. while installing some online program, Firefox now have 3 lines at the top, with the Firefox menu on one whole line, the tabs 2nd line and navigation toolbar 3rd line. How do I get the Firefox menu and tabs to go on one line?

Chosen solution

With current Firefox versions, you can choose to use the Firefox button menu (orange in windows; gray in Linux) at the left end of the Windows title bar, or the familiar Menu Bar like prior versions. The Firefox button is displayed by default only in Windows Vista and Windows 7, but you can turn it on/off or toggle between the two or temporarily display the Menu Bar when the Firefox button is being displayed.

If you have selected to use the Firefox button and you use the default Tabs on Top, the Tab bar will move to the Title bar with the Firefox button only when you are in Maximize window (the middle "square" button in the upper right corner of the standard Windows application window). Other toolbars selected will display below that (Navigation Toolbar, Bookmarks Toolbar, and any toolbars that you add via Add-ons).
