How do I get rid of both the orange icon with firefox and the menu bar?

I have tried to get rid of both the menu bar and the firefox orange tab because I need neither and I really don't want the extra clutter on my screen. It seems as though if I get rid of one the other comesb back. How do I get rid of both, because if I can't I'll just switch to a different web browser.

Right-click a blank spot on the Menu Bar and deselect Menu Bar. When the browser is Maximized the Tabs will be up next to the Firefox button.

This doesn't solve my problem at all. My problem was that I didn't want either on my screen. I already knew how to switch between the two.

You can use an extension to get a menu button instead of the Firefox menu and possibly remove that button to the toolbar palette.

A possibility is to hide the text label or hide the Firefox menu button completely with code in userChrome.css.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.

#appmenu-toolbar-button { list-style-image: url("chrome://branding/content/icon16.png"); }
#appmenu-toolbar-button > .toolbarbutton-text { display:none!important; }

#appmenu-button-container { display:none!important; }

This kind of helped but eventually I found an add-on that hid the orange firefox tab and doesn't require me to have the menu toolbar up either. Thanks.
