I would like to have in the Bookmark toolbar only text (to be more discrete). In the Mac version of Firefox it is like that, but in the Windows version the bookmarks in the toolbar are consistently shown with both icon and text.

There is a choice to be made for the Firefox toolbar whether icons, text or both should be shown for each knob, but for the Bookmarks toolbar I cannot find that.

It is a detail but improves ergonomy for using Bookmarks toolbar.

I run Windows XP SP3 and Mac OS X 10.6.4 respectively

You can do this by editing a file called userChrome.css inside the chrome folder of your profile folder.

If you have not edited that file before, the links above should help, but also see

When you edit that file, add the following lines below the line that starts with @namespace

/* hide bookmark toolbar icon images */
#personal-bookmarks .toolbarbutton-icon {
  display: none !important;

There is more information available at

That site includes further examples of code that you can add to modify Firefox, but not all examples will work with Firefox 3.6.*
