Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

Certain options that are available in the normal menu bar are simply not available in the combined menu.

Like what?

I'm not the original poster, but the examples I'd give are the contents of the View and Tools menus. Want to zoom in or out, or reset the zoom level? The regular menubar has entries under View, but there's no equivalent for the compact Firefox menu. And the Tools menu has an option for clearing recent history, likewise with no obvious equivalent in the compact menu.

For that I use the shortcuts, anyway, you still have access to the full menu while using the combined one:

Press ALT+V for the View menu, ALT+T for the tools menu, etc.

For zooming I would use CTRL+mousewheel. You could also drag zoom controls in Firefox. The new Firefox menu has zoom controls so maybe you are right and people really wanted to zoom a lot with the Firefox menu.
