How to change Menu icon in Firefox toolbar [Tip]

As Firefox continues to release its newer versions, you can also notice the changes and improvements to its UI. Back then, the menu bar used to be shown at the top by default but now, all you need to do is to click the Menu icon. In newer versions of Firefox, the Menu icon is located in the toolbar. It’s often called as the hamburger icon or the icon with three horizontal lines.

Speaking of which, what if you find the Menu icon too plain? Is there a way for you to customize it? Instead of showing the three horizontal lines, can you change the icon to show the Firefox logo in classic or outlined view? Well, you can! Just read and follow the instructions listed in this post.
