Actually, my Earlybird on Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't display the menu in what 
is now the standard Ubuntu place. the only way I can get a menu is 
clicking a small Android-like three-line icon on the far right of the 
toolbar. Also, it used to be that when menu bars were hidden, pressing 
Alt brought them up - but this isn't working.

Are either of these behaviours a bug?

I can (thanks to this thread) turn the menu bar back on in prefs, but 
it's still in-window, not in the Ubuntu place at the top of the screen.
