I am using Ubuntu 10.04. Unfortunately, I've removed Firefox using the command :

sudo apt-get purge remove Firefox

After, I've installed Firefox using the command

sudo apt-get install firefox* 

When I open Firefox, the Firefox window will open but I could not access any menu bar.

I've used

firefox -p

command and created a profile and it works but after a reboot of the machine, Firefox is not functioning properly.

Try this:

Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T, then type:

$ sudo apt-get remove --purge firefox*

Then, remove any configuration files which are located at ~/.mozilla:

$ sudo rm -rf ~/.mozilla

Then, use the following command to install Firefox

$ sudo apt-get install firefox firefox-globalmenu

Thanks for your response but it is not apt solution for my problem and atlast I had found solution as given below:

I had downlaod the Boot Repair Disk software from after that It could be repaired by using fail safe mode, It repairs my corrupted configuration file such as (boot, grub..ect). (once repair the corrupted grub file). I can access menubar in my firefox.
