How do I set menu bar headings?

I am operating on XP. I no longer have the menu bar headings: file, edit, view, history, tools, and help displayed at the top of the page. I have "toggled" the tool bar but nothing appears. I have tried to query the knowledge base to no avail. Can anyone help?

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in full screen mode (press F11 or Fn + F11 to toggle; Mac: command+Shift+F).

Make sure that toolbars like the Menu bar and Navigation Toolbar and Bookmarks Toolbar are visible:

  • Firefox > Options
  • "View > Toolbars" (press F10 to display a hidden menu bar)

Hello Bfuddled49, when you said "toggled" the tool bar you mean this : Hidden menu bar ?

Re: How do I set menu bar headings?

It is a while since I used XP. It will display the Firefox button but is designed to operate best with the standard menu bar from what I remember.

You should also be able to see the menubar toolbar even if the Firefox button is present by holding down the Alt key, does that happen ?

If you are unable to get the menu to appear you may need to reset the controls for the menubars, either use the firefox reset (that will get rid of any extensions you have),or just delete the localstore.rdf, that just rsets customisations and is the better option,even if not quite as simple to do.
