Is there a firefox addon that can do this? I've googled & noted that a multi-bar addon was discontinued before Quantum's release. Any new addon available, or code I can tinker with to make this possible?

Hi,

Would you please take a look at the solution on Reddit, and see if that will work for you as well  ?

All that code & Jargon went way over my head unfortunately. I'll stick to the one bar for now I think. Was hoping there was just a simple addin & could click :(

Hardly solved. You can greatly expand the Bookmarks Toolbar's capacity by shortening names and using folders for similar bookmarks.

If you right-click on the web site in the toolbar it will show Properties at the bottom of that Context Menu. Click on that and the first line will show the Name which you can abbreviate down as far as you like - even to nothing which I do for many sites where I'm familiar with the Icon. This makes a lot of extra room on the toolbar - never forgetting the drop-down capacity at the end of the line accessed by the arrowheads(>>) at the end of the toolbar. 

The website will open without trouble and show the full website address. In the Context Menu the line below Name is Location which will also give you the full website name.

You can create a folder on the toolbar and call it anything you like. You don't even have to shorten the bookmark names inside the folder except for tidiness.

As my reply didn't solve your problem - would you please remove the Chosen Solution mark  ?

You can do so by clicking on the 'Undo' button to the right of that post.
