Windows 10: Pull-down or Drop-down Menu? Solved

    Pull-down or Drop-down Menu?


    I decided to uninstall Firefox after the entries in the Favorites doubled.
    (Example: the Yahoo Mail sign-in page appears twice in the list. Deleting
    one also deletes the other.)

    I have been looking for browsers with pull-down or drop-down menus but
    could only find Chrome-styled browsers (without pull-down or drop-down menus).

    Would anyone suggest an old style browser?

    TIA.

    Perhaps Pale Moon from palemoon dot org. It is not a Firefox clone. There are some Firefox coding from many versions back. But the developers had forked it, and within this past year endeavoured to blaze a new trail as far away from Mozilla Firefox as possible. Their brand new baby was delivered this past week. IOW, there will be familiarity; and there will be growing pains. There is a forum of discussions exploring both.

    Take a look at Qupzilla. Not sure if that's the kind of browser you're wanting.

    Hi there

    What about IE11 !!!! --just enable menus from the tools section.

    I know some people HATE IE11 but it's still around and actually I quite like its menu system --but then I'm old fashioned --I hate the new style of endless horizontal scrolling as per tablets / smart TV applications etc.

    Thanks to all!


    Thank you pyramid10 and bra10n. I tested both Pale Moon and Qupzilla
    and decided to use Pale Moon because it like Internet Explorer.

    Thank you jimbo45 for your reply. I have IE11 but it keeps freezing,
    always there is a "not responding" message.

    Thanks Edwin for suggesting Vivaldi. I will try it tomorrow.
