Disable Autohide Menu Bar on Firefox on Unity Desktop


I’ve written similar article before but that was not for Unity. The autohide menu bar in recent Firefox versions can be annoying because user should press Alt to show it. Fortunately, we can change that behavior. In Unity, we need to disable the global menu support in Firefox first and then enable the menu bar manually.

1. Enter Configuration

Visit about:config page using Firefox and press I accept the risk! button.

2. Disable Unity Support

Search for ‘unity’ keyword and you should find ui.use_unity_menubar entry. Change the value into false. This disables the Firefox’s use of Unity global menu.

3. Show Menu Bar

Still on Firefox, click on menu button (most right, 3-lines button) > click Customize > see the selection on bottom-left corner > enable Menu Bar > click Exit Customize.

4. Enjoy Normal Menu Bar

Now you should see the menu bar is back permanently.

Disable Autohide Menu Bar on Firefox


For many years, we Firefox users know the menu bar is on top of window. But recently Firefox changed, it hides menu by default, and we should press Alt to show it. For many users this feature is not comfortable so here the easy way to show the menu bar permanently again. I use Firefox 52.0.1 on Ubuntu MATE 17.04 to do this. This is applicable to another version on another OS such as Windows or MacOS

3. Click the button and enable “Menu Bar”.

4. Click Exit Customize button.

5. Now the menu bar should appears again permanently.
