How do I get the application menu to be placed inside the Firefox window?
I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 and Firefox 12.0.

I like Unity as a whole, but the Mac-style "globalmenu" idea provides bad usability -- especially other users on my computer never find the menu and that prevents them from doing several tasks, like printing.

I've run the command sudo apt-get remove indicator-appmenu to put the menu back into the application window for most applications -- except Firefox.

I've seen that there have been tricks to achieve the reverse, probably with older Firefox versions that didn't support globalmenu yet. Isn't there a similar trick to go the other direction now?

Firefox uses it's own extension for this, firefox-globalmenu –  Uri Herrera May 13 '12 at 19:53
    
@Uri: they use an extension to support globalmenu, not to remove it, right? I've checked Tools>Add-ons in my Firefox and there are no extensions relating to this. –  Torben Gundtofte-Bruun May 13 '12 at 19:55
