Missing menus Firefox 4?

Just tried installing Firefox 4 (not beta) and the menus line (File, Edit, View, Bookmarks, Tools, Help) went missing. I figured out how to get to my bookmarks, but the rest of it is a complete mystery. Incredibly uncomfortable.

All fixed by re-downloading 3.6.17

Any ideas or comments? Thinking about waiting a few months for some fixes to come along for 4.0.1...

    Just press the "Alt" button on your keyboard and it will show up then on the Menubar click View - Show Menubar and preferably anything else you want to show, like Bookmarks, blah blah, blah.

    Another method is right click at top and click "Show Menubar"

    If the menu bar is missing, it is usually because it has been hidden or because the file storing your toolbar information has become corrupt.

    The menu bar is hidden by default on Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Instead of using the menu bar, you can open the Firefox menu by clicking on the Firefox button at the top left corner of the browser window.

    Starting in Firefox you can hide the menu bar to give you more screen space. It's also possible that a Firefox extension or another program on your computer has hidden the menu bar. You can show it again using the mouse and keyboard.

    1.Press Alt on the keyboard and release. The menu bar will appear temporarily.

    2.On the menu bar, click View, go to Toolbars, then select which toolbars you want to see.

    If the file storing your toolbar information has become corrupt, use Firefox's Safe Mode to reset toolbars and controls.

    Press Alt on the keyboard and release so that the menu bar will appear temporarily and then follow these steps:

    At the top of the Firefox window, click the Firefox button, go over to the Help menu and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled.... Firefox will start up with the Firefox Safe Mode dialog.

    For Windows XP, click the Help menu and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled....

    Note: You can also start Firefox in Safe Mode by holding down the shift key while starting Firefox.

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears:

    1.Check mark Reset toolbars and controls.

    2.Click Make Changes and Restart to restart Firefox.

    Right click the tab area (where you don't have a tab) and click menu bar.
