Compact Menu is an extension for the Mozillan Browser (Firefox) and Mail client (Thunderbird) that allows you to reorganize the menu options on the menu bar in such a way that the user has more horizontal space on the menu bar to add buttons or other options.

It allows you to have one option called 'Menu' which acts as a drop-down list in which the normal menu items are shown in the order that they would appear on the menu bar. You can also choose to not display the word 'Menu' and use an icon instead.

In the options window of this extension (where-ever it will go...) you can choose which menu items to display in the drop-down list. The available options are the default options in (i.n.n.h.).

Note that if you choose not to see an option, this option will also not be shown if you revert to normal view. If you disable the extension through the Options panel (if they keep the name), you will see the default menu options in (i.n.n.h.) again.

All in all, this extension saves a lot of horizontal screen space and is particularly useful if you have all the menu's on one menu bar.
