That is not possible. This icon is in current Firefox releases part of the page actions (three dot menu drop-down list) and is thus positioned in the page action container.

That star (Bookmark this page) is permanently inside the URL bar; however, the small star with underline on it (Show your Bookmark) can be move on the right side of the URL bar or after the URL bar, or after the "search" bar (if you customized having a "search" bar). You can also hide the small star with underline on it by right clicking the toolbar and select "Customize" and drag down such icon and select "Done" when you are done dragging down.
