Description

The new menu button doesn't bring anything on the mac where the menu bar is still active, maybe we should not show it by default on mac (and te red cross next to exit (while on mac it's quit) makes it horrible).

Richard / Andreas:

Can I assume that Australis means including the App Menu button on OSX as well?

-Mike
The menu button was in Shorlander original mockup http://breakingtheegg.tumblr.com/image/18902338028 on mac as well.
Any idea what Firefox does/will do in this case?
Stephen?

Any thoughts on whether Australis Firefox will show the ≡ Button by default on Mac (where the menu is always visible)?

AppMenu screenshot. On the left the actual state, in the middle a proposal with the OSX window close blob and on the right without a icon.

Blake, what do you think should we use? Or do you have an other proposal?

I think without the icon seems the most mac-like.  Could we also remove the icons for Print and Add-ons?

I think the remaining icons (if there are remaining icons) should match the monochrom icons from the menu bar.

Yes we plan on showing it in Firefox. However we are redesigning it to not be two paned and it will be a more streamlined version of the full menubar.

Only the icons for the cut, copy and paste buttons will have icons. I'm waiting for the monochrome icons from Andreas. When I have them I'll attach the full patch.

patch

Patch changing "Exit" to "Quit" for OSX and Linux, removing the icons before the menuitems and using monochrome icons for Cut/Copy/Paste (preview of this icons: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/23792533/screenshots/OSX-C-C-P.png).

This fixes the issues. If the button should be shown or not isn't decided yet.

Just "Quit", instead of "Quit Thunderbird"?

Either way, ui-r=me.

And r=me, too.

Thanks,
Blake.

I used only "Quit" to not make the menu wider than it is now.
