How is it possible to use multirow bookmark toolbar in FF ESR 60 standalone (tar.bz2) on Debian 9 with Cinnamon?

I have a Debian 9.5 (stable) with Cinnamon DE. I didn't want to use backports repositories, so I downloaded the Firefox Quantum ESR tar.bz2 file and unpacked it.

By default, there are no possibilities to extend the bookmarks toolbar for more than 1 row. Pre-Quantum FFs had an extension to solve this issue but that doesn't work anymore. I tried a lot of solutions recommended on Github or Reddit but none of them were able to provide a working solution.

Do you have any idea?

Although not quite the same, this should be some functionality you're looking for: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bookmark-toolbar-menu-button/?src=search

If this solved your problem, please mark as solution to let others know how to solve it!

Thanks, but it is not the droid I'm looking for. Same funcionality achievable without extension.

You can modify the Bookmarks toolbar layout using custom style rules in a userChrome.css file. I have a couple links to sample rules on my site (below), but I've never tested in Linux and there may be better ideas on other sites:

A good resource is this subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/FirefoxCSS/

Thanks jscher, I already found your site but it didn't work for me :(

Do other rules in your userChrome.css file work? If not, or if you don't have any, what's the path to your userChrome.css file? It should be something like:

~/.mozilla/firefox/ab32d1g4.default/chrome/userChrome.css

That example profile name will vary because the first part is randomized.

Currently I have this one - I found this on reddit from you - but it completely hides everything from the bookmarks toolbar:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar */

  1. PersonalToolbar {
 /* Provide room for up to 4 rows at 26px */
 max-height: 104px !important;

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems > box {
 display: inline-block !important;

}

  1. PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
 /* Override hiding */
 overflow-x: visible !important;
 overflow-y: visible !important;
 /* Add a little cushion */
 padding-bottom: 1px;

}

  1. PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems .bookmark-item {
 /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
 padding-top: 1px !important;
 padding-bottom: 1px !important;

}

Without the css above, this is the situation.

Hi CoreSec, any improvement if you force Firefox to redraw the bar by either hiding and re-showing the bar, or resizing the window?

Does your Bookmarks Toolbar have any items to the left or right of the "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" control in the Customize screen? If so, please move those to a different bar. See: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars.

Hi jsched, I tried to disable and re-enable it, resized the window but nothing helped.

There is nothing else enabled at the same place, you can see that on the attached screenshot.

Thanks for checking, I wasn't sure what that black bar was at the left.

Maybe there is a difference between Linux and Windows that I am not aware of.
