I did a quick search for this, but can't seem to find an answer (also, the forum search complained that "bookmarks" and "toolbar" were too common).

How do I delete the Bookmarks Toolbar menu item from the Bookmarks menu? I never use the toolbar itself, and I'm trying to use Firefox on a small screen (Asus Eee Pc), so I'd like to remove any menu items I don't use. But unlike the smart bookmark items, I can't right-click and delete it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Add this to your userChrome.css file in you profile

#bookmarksToolbarFolderMenu { display: none !important;}

Supernova, thanks. So basically there's no "easy" (or maybe I should say "official") way to do it?

That is the easy and only way.

However, that doesn't hide the separators around it, and they can't be removed normally.

Can you hide them with userChrome.css too?

Thanks :)

Okay, I've found that you can also hide the separators. Most menu items seem to have a "menu ID" and even the separators. However, I can't find an ID for the "bookmark all tabs" item, so it seems that still can't be hidden in this way.

FYI, the separator right around the Bookmarks Toolbar item is called "organizeBookmarksSeparator".

Code: Select all
#bookmarksToolbarFolderMenu { display: none !important;}
#organizeBookmarksSeparator { display: none !important;}


It works, thanks!

Woah, really nice! I hadn't even thought about removing those, yet I never use them. I just did ^^ Thanks!

If this is supposed to remove the Bookmarks Toolbar from the Bookmarks Sidebar,
it doesn't work for me. My UserChrome.css file works for other things, but not this.

Oh. No, it doesn't. It only removes it from the Bookmark menu. I just never use the sidebar =P But there's probably a way to remove that from the sidebar, too.

I would appreciate it if someone knows of a way to eliminate the Bookmarks Toolbar
from the Bookmarks Sidebar. It's totally useless to me.

You can hide Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu and Unsorted Bookmarksin the sidebar.Sidebar

Bookmark Selector 1.0 (In SandBox)
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7884
This is a extension for firefox3.0
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Too bad Sidebar Bookmark Selector does not work in OSX nor does the UserChrome.css solution. So still stuck with the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Could you post your userChrome.css? Your rules could be incorrect or it could have a syntax error that is preventing it from working.
