Add Stuff to Your Toolbars

Install extra stuff on the Firefox toolbars and use it to browse in new ways.

This hack shows how to upgrade Firefox toolbars and use the new features added. There are many extensions that can be usefully put on toolbars, but currently few extensions do this automatically. This hack focuses on two example extensions that benefit from toolbar icons: InfoLister and Gmail Notifier.

Adding toolbar icons, whether they’re standard Firefox ones or special extension ones, is simplicity itself. Make sure the toolbar you’re interested in modifying is already displayed; then, choose ViewToolbarsCustomize to see the list of available icons. Merely drag an icon to the desired spot on the desired toolbar and release the mouse button. Some extensions do this set up for you when they install; others don’t. If nothing seemed to happen after you installed an extension and restarted, check the set of available icons in case more have been added.
