Is there a version of Firefox that will allow the Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar?

Posted

It keeps asking me to update my Firefox, but I don't want to because the new versions don't support Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar/Addon which I love.

Thanks

Im very sorry. Forgot to add that I already realized the newer versions don't support the add-on. I already downgraded. Its just that ive been getting notifications that Mozilla Firefox browser is a bit slow and that my browser is critically out of date. Hoping there might be new version that allows the add-on or someone who could tweak it to work. Otherwise ill just keep using the outdated version. Thanks so much

Do you need the Roomy Bookmarks add-on, or do you just need to hide names of bookmarks on the toolbar?

Well Ty, since you put it that way, I'm not sure...

I just love the fact that I can cram so many bookmarks on there, create additional rows, and even subfolders (as shown in the pic). It has become indispensable in my daily internet use.

The standard bookmarks take up waaay too much room.

Hi, there are ways to that in 57+ but would need to ask and also search and learn some code for usserChrome. USSER CHROME URL'S

Note not all code in one place.

You do know that when the bookmarks toolbar gets full it over flows down the side and can view by clicking the arrow button that will appear once over flow.

Also yes you are insecure badly as Firefox 57+ has a patch for this that works at the browser level and a OS version was also reissued by Microsoft yesterday as a emergency patch : https://betanews.com/2018/03/30/microsoft-meltdown-patch-fix/

There are reasons the past is the past and sometimes have to let go : Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
