menubar

A container that usually contains menu elements. On the Macintosh, the menubar is displayed along the top of the screen, and all non-menu related elements inside the menubar will be ignored. To look native (at least on Windows), the menubar element needs to be placed inside a toolbox element.

More information is available in the XUL tutorial.
