In 11.04 and previous editions of Ubuntu, I used the 'Main Menu' tool (under 'System/Preferences') to change individual icons that I did not like in the icon theme I use (Faenza, and mainly the Firefox icon is what I like to change). I now don't have the 'Main Menu' and I can't find it in Synaptic.

Do you know how I can add this back or install it? Is there a new way to do this with 11.10. To me, it seems Ubuntu has gotten harder to set up the way I like with this edition. Thanks for help.
