Okay, so in Firefox 3, I could have icons on my toolbar for things like print, back, forward, new tab, etc. and text only on my Bookmarks bar. I updated to Firefox 4 and now it seems I can only have all text, all icons or all icons with text. I can't seem to figure out a way to have my Bookmarks bar show up as text only but still have just icons for navigation and printing. Is there a way to do this?

Works like a charm, thank you!

Still, I wish there was a way to do this without an add-on!

You can do that without an add-on if you use code in userChrome.css instead.

Add code to userChrome.css below the @namespace line.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
#personal-bookmarks .toolbarbutton-icon { display: none !important; }

The file userChrome.css is located in the chrome folder in the Firefox Profile Folder
