hello, you can right-click (or on a a mac cmd+click) on any bookmark and remove it. also see Bookmarks Toolbar - Display your favorite websites at the top of the Firefox window.

Phillipp,

Thanks for your response, but that does not work. I am using a mac and when I press command-click on the item in the bookmark toolbar it just opens up the webpage.

I would like to remove the following from my Bookmarks folder:

"Bookmarks toolbar" - "Subscribe to this page" - "Show all bookmarks"

Is this possible? I was able to remove all the other unwanted choices; additionally, I know how to change the order of the bookmarks I want.

The following post was made because this post had to be edited to reflect what I wrote. When I edited this post the following post became irrelevant.

By the way, I like this browser very much. I can live with what you do not allow to be removed; it just doesn't make any sense to me that I can remove some but not all of the unwanted items.

My computer is a PC, not a mac Thanks!

"Bookmarks toolbar" - "Subscribe to this page" - "Show all bookmarks" are menu items in the Bookmarks menu and can't be removed on Mac like is possible on other platforms because the Mac OS handles the menu bar and not Firefox.

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder.


#subscribeToPageMenuitem,
#subscribeToPageMenupopup,
#bookmarksShowAll, #organizeBookmarksSeparator,
#bookmarksToolbarFolderMenu, #bookmarksToolbarFolderMenu+menuseparator { display:none!important; }

I prefer firefox

cor-el gave you instructions for Firefox.

Chrome refers to the user interface in Mozilla programs. userChrome.css is a file which can be used to modify the user interface in Mozilla programs.

I prefer not to use Chrome. It is a more invasive browser than firefox. I really want to be able to remove unwanted items, but not so much that I will change browsers. Thanks for the help!

I guess English isn't your native language because chrome in Firefox has nothing to do with the Google Chrome web browser or operating system! Or, are you just jerking my chain?

Thanks for the input. I was not aware of anything you suggest. I have been a bit closed mind, and I have ignored reference to chrome, when it relates to computers, because of a prejudice I have against Chrome and Google.

It is a trait I do not appreciate in others, yet I find myself guilty. I am not jerking-your-chain, and I apologize.
