  It is simple, if you launch 'gnome-terminal' you have the option to
  enable "Show Menubar".  Click in the window left mouse button.  There
  you'll find a checkbox.  If it is enabled then the terminal emulator
  will show "[File] [Edit] [View] [Terminal] [Help]" tabs.  This worked
  perfectly for me under F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, F10, F11.  But per F12
  those seemed gone.  I experience same with other applications (many)
  like my mailer 'claws'.

  I did go as far as cleaning my entire default repos on the GNOME
  desktop and rebuilding it.  But it seemed not to help.

  For many applications this is not a problem as they give you internal
  handles to control the "Menubar" options.  But some do not give you
  access to their configuration items.

  Example is my default email frontend 'claws'.  I have absolute no
  control to setup and edit my preferences.

  Hope this is enought info, if not let me know and i'll provide you
  screen shots.
