Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That's one of the difficulties. I'm not sure about its name. It's the bar where 'File' 'Edit' 'View' 'Go' et cetera appear in almost every web browser (sorry, Seamonkey 2.12.1). In 'View', it is deffinitely not mentioned.
Right-click in that bar doesn't bring up a selection list?
The problem is that I am lacking that bar. Not even the help mentions the expression menu bar. They must have change it's name in some version. Some bars bear a little icon on one or the other extreme, but I see nothing like it. Once I ran 'seamonkey -new-instance' and the menu bar reappeared. I found the option doing 'seamonkey --help'.
But there should be a less drastic method. Perhaps it was not through the View menu that I hid it.
EDIT: In a normally running instance of the browser, where the menu bar can be seen, I pressed a tiny arrow in the leftmost side of the bar, and the bar went hid. However, the arrow itself remained, and by clicking it once again the bar reappeared. No such arrow in the case I'm speaking about.
A remarkable thing is that the name, I now see, is indeed 'menu bar' (a tiny legend bearing that name pops up when placing the mouse over the little arrow). However, no mention at all of the expression menu bar is made in the browser help system. Unbelievable!!!
Also in Seamonkey, which is Mozilla too, Alt-V brings up the View menu. But as this in case, neither Alt-F nor Alt-E nor Alt-V and so on responded, I think there must be some crash. However, in normal operation, hiding the menu bar clicking the leftmost icon on the bar makes these combination key strokes unresponsive too!
