Announce and Discuss the Latest Theme and Extension Releases.
As usual it will take some time until reviews are done, but in a few days, PrefBar 6.3 will ship as official compatibility update with Firefox 26.
This release also contains first fixes to get compatible with the new "Australis" theme, so give it a try if you already use an Australis based Firefox.
I've also replaced all occurrences of "Preferences Toolbar" with just "PrefBar". I don't want to advertise PrefBar to be a "toolbar" (separate bar in your browser) anymore, as this is just wrong with current PrefBar versions. You can use the "PrefBar menu" button or you can move the PrefBar button group to other toolbars. No need to use PrefBar's own toolbar!

Thank you for your suggestion. This is a good idea, but it needs a bit more work as "prefbarGetResolution" has to be updated, too. I'll keep this in mind for the next release.
It happens a lot to me that I drag the border by accident when I want to scroll instead.
I only have width settings in the Resize button defined, so I'm not really affected.
I use this for the set function:
Here you'll find your code with some modifications added (get-function, some documentation):

I forgot to update the build date, so PrefBar will not update the button automatically. You'll have to use the "Reset" button if you want to test the get-function.
And another short update: Mozdev.org is down since some days. This means, that Bugzilla can't be used. Worst-Case I'll either have to install my own Bugzilla instance or give up to have a bugtracker at all.
I just inserted a link to Outlook.com email (the link is actually mail.live.com if that matters). I have got favicons within seconds for the other four links I put up on the prefbar (two for Outllook Web Access email acounts, one for turnitin.com, the other for inoreader.com). Why isn't my outlook.com link getting a favicon? I am pretty sure that the favicons appeared very very soon after I put the links up on prefbar.
You have to get sure the URL, you enter in the "link" button, really points to the target! So please click your link and wait a second. Maybe your link doesn't point to the real target, so you get redirected. Copy the resulting redirected URL and replace your current URL in the "link" button with the new one.
OK that was it. As soon as I OKed out, the favicon appeared. Thanks.
Since updating to Firefox 27, the "Restore Tab" button no longer works. (I tend to use that one a lot. )
EDIT: This may be a false alarm. It looks like this is a Tab Mix Plus issue. Sorry about that.
For the last couple of days (perhaps after a recent Aurora update?) Prefbar has not displayed several links that I had on the prefbar. Instead what I see is one button PB and a down arrow. Clicking that button will give me my links and thier icons. You can see a screenshot of what I'm talking about. http://paulrittman.com/prefbar.png
Is there a way to get the links and icons back on the navigation bar, where they were before?
You placed the "PrefBar menu" item to the navigation toolbar. Remove it and place the "PrefBar toolbar items" item instead.
OK I didn't know those were two separate options. I think trying a different version of FF garbled the icons up for me.... all is well now. Thanks.
Having trouble getting a favicon for a link on prefbar to inoreader.com.
The link is working; I have given it a title and a label (Inoreader). The link is NOT a redirect---it takes me straight to inoreader.com. Even after logging in, the URL in the urlbar says "inoreader.com." that is exactly what the line in the link says.
What do I need to do to get a favicon? Having just reinstalled FF Beta, and started a new profile, I have gotten 3 other links to give me favicons. I was using this same browser and version of PrefBar yesterday and all was well.
EDIT: Found my own answer. The URL needed to be modified by inserting "https://" in front, and "/" at the end. I did this and within 2 seconds after I clicked on the link in the PrefBar, the icon appeared.
At that point, I thought that I was hosed. Then I remembered that I had never un-installed IE (currently at version 11), so I kept firefox running long enough to use FEBE & then CLEO (thank god I already had them installed) to back up my addons, backed up my bookmarks & some other things (several months ago, I researched exactly which files I would need to back up in case of a doomsday disaster like this, & I had all of that info typed into a text file specifically for that reason), went online with IE-11 (I had never un-installed it because of this very possibility), grabbed a new firefox 20.0.1 installer (from filehippo) & spent several hours un-installing, re-installing, & customizing firefox back into working condition.
Yes, that's the reason for the problem. Best is to open the website, you want to create a link for, and copy the full URL from the address bar.
