I've spent over 2 hours trying to get this to happen. Add-ons didn't work with 13.0.1. My config list wasn't the same as the one in the forum that suggested a change. I read that 14.0.1 was supposed to make it possible--did it? The tabs page in tools/options looks the same, and the default is blank page. After seeing so many people writing about the same thing, it's hard to believe that the Foxfire folks find this such a challenge.

Nonetheless, can anyone help?

Thanks

I have a new machine with a new install of Ubuntu 12.04. In Firefox the menu bar is missing. I have the black border with 3 buttons in the left and the current page title. I also have a tabs bar and toolbars. I've looked in the forum/help and tried the suggestions there, here's what happened:

If I right-click the tab bar, the only toolbars shown in the drop-down menu are Navigation, Bookmarks and Add-ons, so I can't show the menu bar that way.

I don't have a Firefox button.

I've tried creating a new toolbar and moving all buttons except the address field and google search across in case it was a lack of space on the toolbar but that didn't help.

I can't reset the profile as I don't have a help menu.

I've re-installed Firefox and there was no change.

Does anyone have other suggestions please?

I just upgraded to Firefox 6 and it's really bad on my eye sight (which is poor anyway due to illness). I've already downloaded an addon to make the words in the Firefox interface bigger, but how do I make the icons bigger (i.e back, forward, refresh, stop, home).

They're tiny and I can hardly see them, and adding text to them makes my browser look extremely messy.

Is there a way to change the colour of the firefox buttons etc too? Thank you for any help :(
