When using Bookmark toolbar, why is the bookmark button stuck on right?

more options

I NEED the bookmark button on the left, not the far right. I have no reason to go to the far right of my screen

I know how to use customize toolbars. If I move the Bookmarks button to the left Firefox ignore my change if I have the Bookmark Toolbar enabled, leaving the bookmark button on the far right of the Bookmark Toolbar.

If I disable the Bookmark Toolbar, then the Bookmarks button shows up where I had specified.

However, I NEED to keep the Bookmark Toolbar.

While we are here, what makes the "add bookmark" button so GD special that it cannot be moved? Or can it?

If I can move that, then I really have no reason to go to the right of my screen.

The area where you can drop icons to the left of "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" is narrow. Perhaps you would have better luck dragging "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" to the right of the Bookmarks menu drop-down icon?

When you say the "add bookmark" button do you mean the "star" in the address bar? I don't know whether you can pull it out of the bar, but you could use Ctrl+d instead.

You will only get the Bookmarks Menu button if the menu bar is disabled and you have the orange Firefox button.
If the Bookmarks Toolbar is on display then that bookmarks menu button will appear on the Bookmarks Toolbar toolbar and not elsewhere if you've moved it via the Customize window.

You can only have the Bookmarks Menu button display elsewhere (default is on the Navigation Toolbar) if the menu bar and the bookmarks toolbar are hidden.


Add this code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line to move the button to the left end on the bookmarks toolbar.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#personal-bookmarks #bookmarks-menu-button { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0 !important; }

Maybe you have some technical or aesthetic reason for doing this, but do you have any idea how discombobulating iit is to click on Customize and Firefox TELLS me that the BOOKMARKS BUTTON is on the left but then it just magically appears on the right???????????????

..switching back to Chrome
