where is tools drop down menu, it's not on my Firefox menu

I'm trying to follow the instructions for assessing plug ins. The first step to to click on "tools", but there is no tools anywhere either on the toolbar or on the firefox drop down menu

With the orange Firefox button, Add-ons is directly on the "short" two-column menu.

To display the classic menu bar, tap the Alt key or press F10.

If you prefer to switch back to the classic menu bar, you can right-click a blank area of the tab bar (or the navigation toolbar) and choose Menu Bar from the pop-up. Or press Alt+v and use the old View menu.

Thanks, it was all about the "classic" menu. It's kind of curious Firefox provides a current discussion about plug ins using terminology from the "classic" features.

The Firefox button menu is enabled by default on Windows Vista and newer ever since Firefox 4.0 while the Menu bar is visible by default on Windows XP and Linux and the compact button menu is not even available on Mac OSX.
