I have a space saving need on my small letterbox screen so I try to keep the FF toolbar area as narrow as possible. I use quite a number of add ons in order to do this, and use the Developer edition to make it easier to control.
The customisation panel/options is not very helpful in this (I hate the layout and lack of controls that have been in the customisation panel for the last dozen or so 'upgrades'.), but I've gradually managed to get the top of the screen looking good.
Unfortunately, the toolbar area does not seem to be very stable, and there is a double arrow at the right end of the navigation bar that is a real pain. This double arrow is not always there, so I can arrange all my icons nicely in customise, only to have several of them pushed off the side of the toolbar, when I go back to normal view.
Reading around these threads, I eventually found out about the navigation box and search box being set to take up the nav bar when on it together. There were instructions for writing a Chrome css file to get the search boxes down to a fixed size. I tried this, and got the boxes to a useful size, but, unfortunately, the rest of the toolbar still behaves as if the space was not freed up. :/
The toolbars area seems very temperamental, and seems to allow arrangement of its elements sometimes, but not others. Juggling with where to put the nave box and search box, I did find an arrangement that let me use all the space for my icons, but, minimise and maximise, and the unnecessary double arrow thing, pushes three or four icons off the end, and introduces forbidden space as if the search box and nav box are still taking up the old space even though they appear to be reduced in size. :/
Can anyone give me another tweak to get rid of the 'forbidden space' and double arrow behaviour, so that I can get everything neatly into my preferred two rows. I think I've got the FF layout pretty near perfect for my set up: if only I had control over this annoying space wasting function.
I'll add snips of the toolbar area in customisation and full screen modes. As you can see, there is 7cm of navbar that it simply will not let me use.
Many thanks for any help in getting this space back for me.
