UI tours depend on the ≡ Menu Button, which is normally not removable. You broke the feature by removing or hiding the menu button with an extension or userChrome.css.

Loic, I do not have time right now for debugging the Firefox for you. 
You've changed something (that you were not asked to do), I even spend my time reporting this, and now you want me to spend even more time digging into details? Sorry, no time right now. 

In the future, can you, please, do not make any changes like this and keep working system working. I am sick of such updates. It happed already many times that after update I have to spend my time reporting or fixing something. 

I may look into this when I have time. In the mean time, try to contact the guy who wrote it. He may have a clue what is happening.

Gingerbread Man, aha bingo! I am not that familiar with the stuff you are mentioning (like .css), but I have an idea what you mean. Indeed, time ago the developers changed standard interface on something custom with ≡ Menu Button, which I, of course, didn't like and didnt want spend my time learning (because next day yet another smart ass will change it again). Then I installed the standard interface plug-in (what a perversion: to have standard interface one needs a plugin!). And then your Firefox UI tours (and BTW all the stuff in help which refers to ≡ Menu Button) does not work/makes no sense.

May be it is time to re-think your approach and just provide standard GUI without any modern/novel/super-puper pervertations? Or debug this by yourself if you have time. I am sick of all this new interfaces and collisions. I want just a simple standard interface which works AFTER EVERY UPDATE.

BTW, Gingerbread Man, is this GUI tours an appreciable part of the browser, i.e. does it consume memory and other resources? Can I have a browser without this extra GUI tours feature? It is already critical in terms of memory consumption on some of my old systems - Windows is swapping all the time, but Firefox keeps updating to fater and fater versions. I need fast and light browser without any stupid guides and fancy interfaces. I can read help as a last resort.
