This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Which operating system are you using? Which menu are you attempting to open? (On Windows at least there are two possibilities in the "top left corner".) – Jonathan Garber Feb 26 '13 at 14:21
The menu that says Firefox on it. – Ram Rachum Feb 26 '13 at 14:42
Alt-Enter/Alt-F opens the File menu, Alt-Space opens the Windows menu. Wikipedia has a list of common Windows shortcuts, and this list turned up as the first result from a naive search. . . – Jonathan Garber Feb 26 '13 at 14:49
@JonathanGarber Did you even bother checking whether the solution works before writing it? – Ram Rachum Feb 26 '13 at 15:14
I don't have the Big Orange Button in my personal version of Firefox because it's useless clutter. You're correct in that I didn't try the same thing you were trying. My apologies. That being said, now that I understand to what you're referring, a search for "firefox button keyboard shortcut" turns up the answer in the top results. Easwee has one of the results. – Jonathan Garber Feb 26 '13 at 16:41

According to bugzilla bug report you cant for now, but they are planning to use alt+f in the future.

We are going to use alt-f, it's just slightly more complex since it is overloaded with multile behaviors:

downclick on alt-f: display the firefox menu alt upclick (no f): display the traditional menu bar alt upclick, followed by f downclick: display the file menu in the traditional menu bar
