    Menu Bar, Favorites & Favorites Bar


    I am presently using IE 11 and thinking about switching to another browser. I am looking for a browser that has the
    above titles shown on the home page in the same way as IE 11. Are there any available?

    Hello rjordan393 mate I use Chrome and see this to see how to add at least the favourites and favorites bar
    http://www.groovypost.com/howto/google/where-is-google-chrome-favorites-bar/ (saves me typing it out)

    Edit Mate if you are on a page and want say print that is just a right click and hit Print it I suppose will print the whole thing or whatever you highlight - never had to do that to be honest.

    Thanks,
    I'll give it a try to see if I like it. I already tried Firefox and I do not like the way their front page is set up. There's no menu bar and their favorites bar is hidden and I want it to be visible and not have to search through it.

    For Firefox, just install CTR (Classic Theme Restorer).
    AFAIK It permits restoring all of the configurations and settings I think you describe.
    There are other, similar add-ons, but CTR is the most robust and effective.
    (For advanced users, userchrome modifications also permit quite a lot of tweaking/customization to the UI/UX.)

    Actually there is a menu bar, but by default it only appears when you press the Alt key. You can make it permanently visible (and the Bookmarks toolbar) without the aid of any add-ons.

    Good point.
    That was such a basic step, I forgot about it.
    LOL

    More info here:

    But CTR will certainly permit a lot of the "old" UI/UX features that were dropped with V29 (Australis).

    Cheers,

    I gave Firefox another look. Apparently, some of the advice on the net was outdated but not by much.
    After following their instructions and bringing up a submenu, the command to add the menu bar was supposed to be in the submenu and it was not. Just by accident, I saw it at the bottom of the page.
    I was also able to add the favorites bar the same way. So now I will use both IE and Firefox and compare both.

    So far, Firefox is looking good. I think in a few days, I'll be making it my default page.
