I just installed firefox 3.6.10 on my new mac and I can't find Options under Tools or anywhere else. So I can't designate a homepage or configure firefox to delete cookies etc when it closes. Did 3.6.10 do away w/ options?

If I'm not mistaken Mac versions of Firefox put the "Options" in the edit menu like in Linux versions.
