So, when can I expect to see my add-on bar back??? Most of the look is okay, but the lack of the add-on bar is unacceptable to me, and the Classic restorer doesn't save my add-on bar items.

Oh, look...an add-on bar with my forecastfox with 3 days and 2 nights, my unplug fish, my no script icon, my flashgot video download icon and my proxy icon....
Oh, look,
There on my add-on bar.... it's my forecast fox with 3 days and nights. There's my weather radar, my unplug fish, my email notifier, x-notify, my proxy button and my noscript S..and you say the add-on bar is useless and unnecessary.

Me too, I don't find the ways to get it back, but someone that know coding might find something on that bug to remove the add-on bar, to get it back.

You should go over to Mozilla and let them know you dont like it. I'm sure they will fix it right away. https://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback

You'll need to install this extension to get it back:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... erestorer/

It's doubtful Mozilla will restore it after going through so much effort to remove it. (This plan has been in the works for over 2 years).
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

I think you meant to write 'the Status-4-Evar' extension is what you need. (good extension, doesn't break other stuff right, left and centre *hint*)

Actually the ID for the addon-bar still exists, I noticed this while using DOM Inspector. If you add something like:
Code: Select all
#addon-bar  { height: 26px !important; }

to Stylish, the add-on bar will appear below the Bookmarks toolbar. But it is at the moment non-functioning. Any thing added to it will return to the pallette upon closing the Customize dialog.
Anyone have any ideas on how to get it to work? I like the new location.

Sorry about that... looks like you are right Frank... Sparky looks to be supporting all of the classic features along with a customizable addons toolbar:

I think they have it sitting there specifically for the purpose of transferring items back to the Customize palette which are placed there by users and by extensions. I suspect on first-run during the update there will also be a script that runs and empties it out so that people's buttons don't disappear totally.

S4E works fine with CTRs add-on bar.

Buttons/items can refuse to stay on new toolbars, if...

... they are forced to be on a specific one like the old add-ons bar (Devs have to update their add-ons to allow their items to be everywhere in Australis ui! Its not CTRs fault)

... the profile is faulty (create a new one or at least remove localstore.rdf)

Yep. Found this in the toolbar.xml:
Code: Select all
<!-- This is a peculiar binding. It is here to deal with overlayed/inserted add-on content,
      and immediately direct such content elsewhere. -->
  <binding id="addonbar-delegating">


That explains why it was left in.

Got it. This gets it working:
Code: Select all
#addon-bar {
  -moz-binding: url("chrome://browser/content/customizableui/toolbar.xml#toolbar") !important;
  height: 26px !important;
}


Tested with Status-4-evar and a few others and everthing stays put.

Yeah, I was thinking breaking that binding might work. For now anyway. ;)

Well done, nice coding. =D>

You might want to think twice next time though before announcing such things in the Builds forum where devs lurk. Things not under their direct control tend to get them breathing deeply and slowly into brown paper bags (hence why they love Personas and have vanished the chrome folder, userChrome/Content.css, etc, etc)

You watch, there'll be a 'reducing code maintenance burden' bug filed now to vanish the #addons-bar.

Great!
This should work until "#addon-bar" gets completely removed from Australis code.
It also allows Forecastfox to work without tricks.
