I am using Natty without unity, but I am a fan of the global menu applet. Unfortunately, it does not work for Firefox 5 (and other programs that draw them themselves).

How can I activate the special globalmenus for the non-unity globalmenu app (or: is it possible)?

Make you sure you have firefox-globalmenu package installed. – Vojtech Trefny Jun 26 '11 at 12:06

make sure you have firefox-globalmenu installed AND disable firefox's new menu that appears folded at the top left corner of firefox's main window. HERE is a screenshot of the menu i'm talking about
