is a bit space-wasting, since i like to jam buttons in the "menu" bar.

i've been searching and searching within rdf, xul. in progfiles or in program folder... in jar even.

there's no doubt info on a web page somewhere, I've looked at some.. xulplanet mozillazine. others... but i haven't found *that*
info by google searches.


fwiw, i'm using windows.

(gotta headache, ugh.)

If you were using the Gecko-based K-Meleon browser (well, you
didn't say which browser) then you can edit the menus at

Tools -> Advanced Preferences -> Menus

and shorten the menu text.

That's odd. I have very few crashes here (win9.

Using K-Meleon 0.9, updated with a later Gecko rendering
engine (rv:1.7.10, Gecko/20050716).

Open C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\chrome\en-US.jar
and examine these files inside it...

locale/browser/browser.dtd
locale/browser/baseMenuOverlay.dtd
