Why is there whitespace to the left of the URL in the navigation bar?
I'm using Firefox 24.0 (current version) on Windows 8. There is an excessive amount of whitespace to the left of the url. Why is it there? Is there a way to justify the url to the left? I will post a screenshot below.
In another thread, this was related to disabling an add-on that sometimes uses that space on the address bar. I can't recall which one, or whether there was a workaround other than re-enabling it.Read this answer in context 👍 1

An image illustrating the issue is attached.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
- Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

Safe mode did not fix it, but jscher2000's suggestion did. I had the SimplePass add-on disabled, and re-enabling it fixed the issue. SimplePass is HP's plugin for fingerprint sign-on. Why it would cause this is beyond me.
Thank you both for your suggestions!
