global-menu support for Firefox 4 in Ubuntu 11.04 available to test

Natty alpha testers keen to gain Firefox app-menu support now can, thanks to the work of Ubuntu’s Chris Coulson.

The extension enables Firefox’s app menu to be displayed in the panel as most other applications shipped with Ubuntu are able to do. The result helps bring a clean and consistent experience to the Ubuntu 11.04 desktop.

Firefox 4 with Ubuntu 11.04 AppMenu support

Install

It should be noted that the application menu extension, whilst working, is still in development.  The extension is only available for Ubuntu 11.04 testers running the latest version of Firefox in Natty.

Installation instructions are located here and, once running, bugs should be reported here.

Chris Coulson is also working on AppMenu support for Thunderbird 3.1.
