How to get multi-row bookmarks bar?

Posted

For years I've used a userchrome script to show multiple rows of bookmarks, but it no longer works in Firefox 66!

Does anyone know what's gone wrong, or a way this can be fixed?

I cannot function without multi-row bookmarks! I have over 25,000 bookmarks, all neatly organized into folders across five rows of bookmarks. there's no way I could cram all those categories into one single, solitary row.

It's a shame that Firefox has never seriously supported the bookmark bar. It's always been buggy, ugly, cumbersome to use, and never felt very "solid". The menu also has a tendency to disappear, making it hard to organize and drag bookmarks and folders around.

Grab the latest version of that CSS code. Some changes made for Firefox 65 'broke' the older CSS code for certain elements of the UI, a simple edit is needed. I am not aware of any changes made for Firefox 66 though.

Thanks, the link you gave has the solution - a new code for Firefox 66!

The code I had been using before was very long, but the new code is really small and simple. You just put this in your Userchrome file:

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

Hi MartyJames, if you put <pre> before and </pre> after your CSS, the forum won't mangle it as badly.

Why would there be JavaScript involved? JavaScript is not supported in userChrome.css files.

With CSS I have some bug: https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/issues/99#issuecomment-475870631

So once again, I need JS code to run in chrome, if anyone see that code for CustomButton or userChrome.js then please share.
