I want to show it permanently.idk Why the Title bar needs to be changed to display Menu bar. Maybe it's by design, but it's annoying.

Showing the menu bar also implies using a standard window frame. That has been the design ever since the application button menu was introduced all those years back.
The title bar effectively performs the same function in both modes.

There is a way to make it show using userChrome.css, but I can't guarantee a "clean" behavior, and don't expect any support on it; if you experience bugs, they're because you're intentionally breaking the program's intended behavior.

Code: Select all

#toolbar-menubar[autohide="true"]
{
 -moz-binding: url("chrome://global/content/bindings/toolbar.xml#toolbar") !important;
 min-height: 19px !important;
 height: auto !important;
}

Just in case you run into any issues, "unset" might be better than "auto" for the height value. In most cases, hopefully there won't be a functional difference.
