Firefox bookmark bar icons

One of the things that's kept me using Mozilla instead of Firefox:

The icons on the "Bookmark Toolbar" go away in Firefox when you set the prefs to display "Text" instead of "Text and Icons" or "Icons", for the Navigation toolbar.

I like the bookmark icons (folders particularly), but prefer my Back, Forward, Reload, Stop to be text. With the mozilla builds, switching these to text doesn't do away with the bookmark bar's icons..


Here's the fix. You'll need to create a userChrome.css and put the fix there. See for specifics for your platform on how to do that.

Now add this to the userChrome.css:

/* Force bookmark icons in the Personal Toolbar */
toolbarbutton.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon {
display: inline !important;

Save, restart firefox, and you'll always have bookmark icons!

There are more variations possible...the customizing.html link above details how to force them /off/ for example.

I've provided a sample at: userChrome-icons.css

Just copy this to your profile/chrome directory and rename it to userChrome.css.
