How can I let 2 (or more) toolbars share the same row?

Posted

I would like to have 2 or more toolbars which don't fill a whole row share the same row (like in MS Word or Acrobat Reader). Is this at all possible?

Experiment with those toolbars and see what is possible with those particular toolbars. Firefox does have that capability for the most part, but each toolbar developer has to provide the coding in their add-on to take advantage of what Mozilla has built into Firefox.

My estimation is that a properly done toolbar add-on has three times the code that a minimal effort toolbar add-on has. Too many toolbar developers these days take the easy way and don't make their add-on to be "flexible" enough.

Thanks for your reply.

I did some more experimenting as suggested and indeed found that some toolbars have the capabiltiy and others don't, just as described your answer.

However, I wonder: If this functionality is implemented in FF as the hosting application (as I would expect, but then, I'm not an expert), some developers seem to disable this in their toolbar. Why would they?
