I must confess, I heve lots of addons installed, therefore my toolbar is fully loaded. the adress bar is shrunk to a minimum, but there would be absolutely no need for the Page Security Info to be THAT space consuming!!? Who needs the full name of the certificate to be visible all the time! Wouldn´t it be enough to just show it by hovering over it?

Is there any possibility to shrink this annoying text to the size of an icon??

Thanx 4 every hint!

Firefox 5.0.1, Windows XP

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Add code to userChrome.css below the @namespace line.

See:


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
#identity-icon-label { display:none!important; }

You could also create a new toolbar and move some or all of your add-on icons to it, freeing space on your Navigation toolbar. Of course, that takes additional vertical space.

  1. To create a new toolbar, open the Customize window
    • click Firefox button > Options > Toolbar Layout
    • using the Menu Bar, click View > Toolbars > Customize
    • right-click an empty space in a toolbar and choose Customize
  2. At the mid bottom of the Customize window click Add New Toolbar and give the new toolbar a name
  3. drag an add-on icon to it from your Navigation toolbar to the new toolbar that is displayed; drag as many as you wish to the new toolbar but you must have at lease one item on it for it to remain before clicking Done at the bottom right of the Customize window.

Here is a variation that shows the label on hover.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
#identity-icon-labels { display:none!important; }
#identity-box:hover #identity-icon-labels { display:block!important; }
