Firefox 3.6: Spacer trick for prettier Personas

Browsers, Firefox, Work 1 Comment

So you’ve upgraded to Firefox 3.6 and are completely enthralled by the pretty themes available through GetPersonas.com. If you’re like me, you’re going slightly crazy because there just doesn’t seem to be enough space to really show the Personas properly.

Luckily Rob taught me a trick to open up some space in my Firefox toolbar. Just right-click in the space beside your search bar, select Customize…, then add some “Spacers” where you want some extra space. Here’s a step by step guide, using the Two Little Birds persona:

1. Sad birdies, search bar in the way.

2. Right click beside the search bar and select Customize…

3. Open up the Customize menu…

4. Add some spacers, and remove some buttons to free up space…

5. Ta dah! No more sad birdies.

    That customization box has not changed since it was first implemented…I’d really love to see some refactoring done with it, to make it much more user friendly and allow for the addition of editing toolbars to the mix, but still, I had completely forgotten it is there, so thanks for reminding me.
