I can't update to the latest version with the orange Firefox button.

On public computers, I've used a version of Firefox that features an orange Firefox button that replaces the menu bar. On my home computer, even though I've used the "About Firefox" link to update the software, I still do not have the orange Firefox button. I am currently on version 18.0.1 on my home computer.

How else can I go about getting the orange Firefox button to replace the menu bar? Thanks.

It's easier than you imagine:

View > Toolbars > uncheck Menu Bar

Occasionally you might want to access the classic menu bar after that. Tap the Alt key to reveal it.

Windows Vista and newer should have the compact orange menu button by default while on WinXP the menu bar is displayed by default.
