I had to remove navbar, because old firefox layout, when menu bar could been merged with navigation bar, is great, as it saves a lot of vertical space, which is super important in the world of widescreens. This is specially annoying, in fullscreen mode, when navbar is visible as an ugly small bar on top of screen, even being completely empty. So now, addon buttons just dissappears completely, even from "Customize".

I removed navbar by adding this lines to `userChrome.css`: ```

  1. nav-bar { display: none !important; }

ublick * #nav-bar * { visibility: visible; }

``` Unfortunately, keeping navbar is not an option, as it eats the vertical space, even being empty. So my question is, how to restore addon buttons from navbar? I can see a nuber of options here: - Forbid addons to add buttons to navbar, so they automatically appear in "Customization". - Make an alias (or something), so buttons go to another bar, which I select. - Make a navbar take no space, if it's empty, so buttons coulld be removed from it.

Is any of this possible?

You can look at the Classic Theme Restorer extension.

  • You can check out the settings of the CTR extension via its Options/Preferences button on the "Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" page.
  • You can find extra toolbar buttons and more toolbar settings in Customize (3-bar Firefox menu button > Customize)

Using Classic Theme Restorer, I created a second toolbar, and restored the add-ons bar at the bottom of the window.

And by using Vertical Toolbar {web link}, I added a vertical toolbar at the edge of the window.
