Can I make the bookmarks toolbar taller?

Posted

I want to make my bookmarks toolbar taller because I put a bunch of extension icons on it after my main toolbar got too crowded. Is there a way to either add a toolbar with a larger height or edit the properties of the bookmark toolbar so my icons are larger?

I would also like to stop applications from launching firefox because they use it to go around my firewall on windows 10. Any suggestions?

Before offering advice about modifying the UI as you think you need, please post a screenshot of what your Firefox browser window looks like now.

See this support article. How do I create a screenshot of my problem? It is best to use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed a maximum file size of 1 MB. Then use the Browse .... button below the Post a Reply text box to upload the screenshot.

Most applications will use the built-in Internet Explorer-based plumbing of Windows for internet access. Which applications use Firefox?

There is some malware that may launch its own copy of Firefox from a different folder. To see what folder a process is running from, you can add a column to the Windows Task Manager:

(1) Call up the Task Manager using Ctrl+Shift+Esc.

(2) Switch to the Details tab (first click the "More Details" at the bottom if you don't see any tabs).

(3) Right-click any column heading > Select Columns, and add Command Line.

(4) The normal Command Line for 64-bit firefox.exe would be similar to:

  • Main process: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
  • Child processes: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -contentproc [etc.]

If you see Firefox running from an unexpected folder, that's suspicious. I don't know what tools Windows has to track that down, but you could look at Microsoft's Process Explorer program which can show you the parent process of the rogue Firefox:
