They've probably moved to be accessible through the 'Firefox' button to
the left of the tab bar.
If you click on that, choose 'Preferences' and then check 'Menu Bar'
the menu bar should reappear at the top.

I think turning off tabs-on-top is the closest available. I find it
hard to believe that sidebar behaviour is intentional, too.
