How to make the ‘standard’ Safari /File/Edit/View 'button/menu' bar permanent i.e. always visible at top of screen and not occasionally disappear.

I have a MacbookAir

  1. Show package contents for Safari.
  2. Edit the file Contents/info.plist
  3. Search for "LSUIPresentationMode" (you may want to use a plist editor). It will look like this if you use a regular text editor:
    <key>LSUIPresentationMode</key> <integer>4</integer>
    If the property does not exist, then you can create it - it must be inserted in the correct alphabetical order.

  4. Change the value of the integer to 0, 1 or 2 (but NOT 3 or 4).
    Along with menubar permanent display, 1 also hides the dock (until mouse is moved there) and 2 removes the dock.

For more information on LSUIPresentationMode usage, check this out.
