How do I open the Firefox menu using the keyboard? (I mean the one at the top left corner)

Windows XP.

  • 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
