It wasn't there until I decided to play with the toolbars, then had no choice but to click on the Restore Default Set since there was no other way to undo some of the changes...

That's when I noticed the new icon on the toolbar. It's in my way. I don't want it there, but I can't find anything about getting rid of it. I assumed it was a bug, but this screen shot from FF's own pages tells me they think it's a good idea.

I don't, and I'd like it off of there. Has anyone figured out how to get rid of it? Thanks!

You can remove the Bookmarks Menu button on the Bookmarks Toolbar with code in userChrome.css


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 #bookmarks-menu-button { display:none !important; }

I use a Multi Row BookmarksToolbar userChrome-Script (as shown in http://userstyles.org/styles/29428 ). With this code the Bookmarks Menu button is displayed in a separate row instead of at the end of the last row.

As I learned from this post I could disable the button completely. But I actually like it. How can I change its position to the end of the last row of bookmarks or even better to the beginning of the first row?

Firefox 4 has two bookmark buttons with a star in the Customize window.
One star button has a drop marker that open a Bookmark menu.
The other star button without the drop marker opens the bookmarks in the sidebar.

You can drag the Bookmarks menu button with the drop marker in the Customize window from the toolbar palette to the left of the Bookmarks Menu Items.


Open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout"

Thanks. That works in principle. But since I have 3 rows of bookmarks this produces a really huge bookmark button spanning over all 3 lines (see screenshot). Does not look very nice...
