Just started using Fire Fox


#1

The one thing I noticed when switching from IE is the inability to move the toolbars around the way IE allows you to. I’ve got about 5 toolbars packed into 2 lines in IE. I noticed that by the time I show all the toolbars I want in FF that I lose a noticeable ammount of screen real estate - and I have a ton of empty toolbar space sitting at the top.

I looked through the mozdev site to see if there were any plugins that would allow you to move toolbars around but didn’t see any. Does anyone know of any that I might have missed?

right click around the top(grey area) until you find customize…that should get you where you wanna go


#3

it’s not doing it for me. the only time i get the customize menu is going to view/toolbars/customize. but that only allows me to add and remove buttons. i get no option for dragging and dropping entire toolbars. i was reading at the mozilla site and they seem to indicate in their FAQ that this feature doesn’t currently exist, although it’s being planned for future versions.

i’m sorry, it’s 3:30 in the morning here. i don’t understand what you wrote. i mean, i know what a skin is. and i imagine a tiny skin is a small skin. but not sure how that all fits together with moving the toolbars lol


#6

sorry… not enough sleep b/c of woot

i think i tried to say… when you choose a mozilla theme with small font.
then after that , i have no clue…


#7

ooohhhhhh, i think i see. You’re suggesting i should set my font size small so that i make better use of what screen real estate i have left after all the tool bars are inserted at the top? is that it?

a good nights sleep is a wonderful thing.

I’m sure someone who takes a look at it will be able to help you exactly
