I recently switched to the cinnamon desktop on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and I am wondering why the window options such as "File" and "Edit" aren't showing up at the top of my windows. Occasionally they show up on the gnome Terminal or Files, but that's it. What's going on?

"File" and "Edit" etc. won't show up on Firefox:

Thanks in advance.


You need to press Alt for the menu to appear. If you want the menu to appear at all times, enable View > Toolbars > Menu bar.
