This bug doesn't cover the Accounts, Library, Web Developer or Help submenus. Those will be covered in separate bugs, as those strings are likely re-used for things like the menubar.

Gnome says "header capitalization" (similar to title casing): https://developer.gnome.org/hig/stable/writing-style.html.en and headerbars (hamburger/app menus) are commonly used there.

macOS doesn't commonly use these menus, but menu bars are generally supposed to use title casing: https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/macos/menus/menu-anatomy/

Assignee: nobody → mconley
Severity: -- → N/A
Priority: -- → P1

This doesn't include the Accounts, Library, Web Developer or Help submenus.
Those will be addressed in follow-ups.

Depends on D100042

We're going to need to fork &tabCmd.label; for the AppMenu, too.
