How to copy Location toolbar from previous Firefox versions

Posted

Hi,

I've been using a very old version of Firefox (3.0.16), mainly because I like very much its intuitive, centrally-located and coloured Location Toolbar. Is there any chance of to import the old Location Toolbar (or its icons)to the new Firefox 11.0? Many thanks.

Do you mean the Navigation Toolbar with the URL box? If so, then everything should be ported over when you update. Just so you know, we strongly suggest you get Firefox 11.0 ASAP, as it contains many security fixes, patches, and updates not available to Firefox 3 users. Here's the download link (direct from Mozilla's download servers).

Yes, I mean the Navigation Toolbar with the URL box. When I update for Firefox 11.0, the URL box moves to the left (less practical, because our eyes and mouse movement is forced to go more to the left part of the screen - that was the greater feature of the old version 3.0.16) and the icons become grey, very sad :(

... When say "that was the greater feature of the old version 3.0.16", I mean that the URL box in the old version was located in the center part of the screen, where our eyes more easily go to. The newer versions of Firefox move the URL box too much to the left, more distant from the combo box on the right.
