Although the absence of a global menubar in GNOME by default did influence this particular decision, the main factor was the increasing difficulty to maintain the firefox patch that enabled the feature. The patch was quite large (several thousands LOC) and heavily relied on internal APIs that have been changing significantly in the past few releases.
I appreciate this is a functional regression for users of Unity and other desktop environments with a global menu bar, but this is a trade- off that had to be made to ensure timely updates for future firefox releases. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1890049 Title: global menu bar no longer supported after 20.04 upgrade To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/1890049/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
