I did some search around here and on the Net...and could not find a specific code to reduce the space between bookmarks and folders up the on the bar... anybody got anything?

PS.. I also changed the density in Customization and it has zero affect.

This adds more space

Code: Select all
/* THIS ADDS MORE SPACING TO THE ITEMS ON THE BOOKMARK TOOLBAR */
 
#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item {
      margin-left: 6px !important;
}


You might try it with a negative margin-left. I don't have time now to play with it.

Worked great... I ended up using -10 for the value. Even though I use a laptop I have a large external screen that I use.... thanks again.

You might want to play with this first to adjust the sizes of the URL and Search fields.

Code: Select all
/* THIS SETS THE WIDTH OF THE URL BAR TO 400 PIXELS, THE SEARCH BAR TO 350 PIXELS AND ADDS 4PX OF SPACE TO THE LEFT OF THE SEARCH BAR  */

#urlbar-container{
  max-width: 400px !important;
  min-width: 400px !important;
}

#search-container {
  max-width: 350px !important;
  min-width: 350px !important;
  margin-left: 4px !important;
}


If this doesn't do what you want post back; however, you might have to adjust the icon spacing for each separately.

A long time ago, i looked at squeezing everything on the main toolbar to enlarge the visible area of the address bar. I'm not sure I could explain the details of these rules now. In case it's useful:

Thanks to both of you... have not tried any of it yet but jscher2000, I notice something in the before/after pics where the space between the url-window and the search window are close (in both) ... my default in both of my profiles is pretty wide (wasted space) so was that moving them closer in a prior fix?

If the URL bar and Search bar are next to one another, there shouldn't be a big space in between. Maybe it's one of those odd flexible spaces?

Tiz weird. I went into customize and placed my mouse up there in that space and the hand appeared so I pulled it down into the customize window and exited ...what it did was switch my url window with my search window... but it did remove the large space between them, so when I went back into customize and re-arraigned them the space came back... I'll check it out in safe-mode when I get a chance.

Your code worked perfectly (as-is) ... all that I had to do was to get into Customize and do a little moving around. Thanks again... long ago when I was running data-centers for a couple of good size companies (main-frames) we had our own type of css-coding-type tools and I used them extensively but now being out of that arena for some 15 years and 'old now' :-" my brain seems to now be lacking in the 'logic-cells' needed to be able to grasp what all the code is and does... I'm sure grateful for you 'kids' out there in the world... and that in includes you jscher2000...and others from the past. =D>

PS: Here is what I ended up with.

You have to be joking. I've been retired for 22 years. This is my first computer. The programing language was LOG.

RobertJ--I would like to have less space between bookmark folders in the toolbar. I want to squeeze in a few more folders. Your code didn't change my space. Was it not meant for folders?

Each bookmark item (folder or bookmark) has 4 pixels of padding on the left and right. Each icon has 4 pixels of right margin between itself and the following text label. To cut those in half, try:

Code: Select all
#PlacesToolbarItems toolbarbutton.bookmark-item {
  padding-left: 2px !important; /* default is 4px */
  padding-right: 2px !important; /* default is 4px */
}
#PlacesToolbarItems .toolbarbutton-icon {
  margin-right: 2px !important; /* default is 4px */
}
