Right click Menu bar -> put a check against Menu bar

  • Couldn't be any easier :) Thank you so much! Also just wanted to add that in Customize Toolbar window I switched to Icons and Text to make the Reload and Stop buttons bit larger if anyone needs that.

    Note that you can also put the tabs below the location bar again. Right-click the menu bar and uncheck Tabs on top. This (re-)enables features such as double-clicking the tab bar to open a new tab or F6 to get the focus into the location bar.

I'd recommend the Lifehacker article on this. Mine certainly easier to use after implementing some of their tips.
