Most (if not all) of the knowledge base articles related to Firefox, Thunderbird and Mozilla Suite / SeaMonkey refer to the menu sequences used in Windows. In the Linux and Mac versions of these applications, however, the menu sequences sometimes differ, as shown below.

Note: Starting in Firefox 4, the Menu bar is hidden by default on Windows 7/Vista. To access Options and other menu items, either click the Firefox Button at the top of the browser window or press the "Alt" key to temporarily show a hidden Menu bar.

Contents
