Great! But... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not only this add-on is great, but also possess a quality of nostalgic elegance. I highly appreciate it.

But it can not display an icon of my choice, which resides in
E:\8.3\Yellow_Star.png

Following your instruction, I add these lines to userChrome.css. But it does not work.

#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button > .toolbarbutton-icon {
list-style-image: url("chrome://E:/8.3/Yellow_Star.png") !important;
-moz-image-region: rect(0, 16px, 16px, 0px) !important;
}

I'm sorry, but the correct way to point to local files looks like this (I forgot to add this to main page, but its now there):

#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button > .toolbarbutton-icon {
list-style-image: url("file:///C:/test.png") !important;
-moz-image-region: rect(0, 16px, 16px, 0px) !important;
}

Very useful addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

But I think it would be much better to be able to customize the icon.

This add-on offers no preferences, but you can override the current icon using custom code in Stylish add-on or userChrome.css.

I've added some info about that to main page.

Does exactly what it claims.

ICON color - Change request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addetion to the collection, i have a suggestion/request if you may.

Can you please add an option for the ICON to vary in color? Would be nice if the bookmark icon matched the other default icon's colors in firefox, which are white&black, not blue like this icon.

Thanks, keep up the good work.

Tihs is a very tiny add-on without any preference windows. It would be easier to this code in userChrome.css or Stylish:

#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button .toolbarbutton-icon{
list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/Toolbar.png") !important;
-moz-image-region: rect(0, 144px, 18px, 126px) !important;
}
#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button:-moz-lwtheme-brighttext .toolbarbutton-icon{
list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/Toolbar-inverted.png") !important;
}

Use active theme icon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon, thanks... Useful even on pre-australis builds to remove garbage (fixed menuitems) from the bookmarks menu with the help of the stylish code posted in a previous comment. Now, I was wondering if there is a way to replace the default icon with the one of the current active theme.

*EDIT* Thank you for your answer, that code works a treat. Great support, btw!

Its possible. Use this code in userChrome.css or Stylish:

#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button .toolbarbutton-icon{
list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/Toolbar.png") !important;
-moz-image-region: rect(0, 144px, 18px, 126px) !important;
}
#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button:-moz-lwtheme-brighttext .toolbarbutton-icon{
list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/Toolbar-inverted.png") !important;
}

Just what I needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you...this little add-on solves the problem, is exactly as advertised, and works a peach. No drama, just a simple quick way to create a Bookmark.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent! I really missed the old bookmark menu from the old versions of Firefox. This Add-on finally solved my problems.

Muchas gracias Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Trabaja super bien

I'm So Glad I Found This Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on fixed a terrible alteration of Firefox 29.0.1. It was in this update, I think, that the "Bookmark This Page" item disappeared from the default bookmark pulldown menu. I tried using the star to create new bookmarks, but I had to rectify the noxious default behavior of always placing them in the Unsorted Bookmarks folder. Ctl-D still put the new bookmarks into the Bookmarks Menu folder, but that meant that instead of a mouse click I had to type the 2 characters. That impeded the flow of my work with Firefox.

This add-on gives me back the pulldown menu that I have been familiar with for who knows how long. I can again use a mouse click to save a bookmark to the Bookmarks Menu folder. No need to type Ctl-D or click the star a second time to move a new bookmark from Unsorted to Bookmarks Menu. It's exactly what I wanted.

Now, I wish the developers would find it in their hearts to let us customize the target folder of a click on the star to create a new bookmark.

Thanks.
But how do I get the Bookmarks Sidebar with this button?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9). 

Use Classic Theme Restorer. It offers a bookmarks sidebar button.

CTRL+B would do the job too.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've never used the star icon to save a bookmark. I've always dragged a tab to where I want the bookmark to be. So for FF29 to force the star icon to take up what limited space I have in the toolbar was frustrating.
Thank you for creating this so I can go back to the more efficient setup.

Thank you very much for this add-on. For me, personally, it's heaven send.
I reverted back from the beta channel to Firefox 28 for the time being.
With you add-ons I'm ready to give it another go.

The new interface just doesn't ring with me. I don't see how
my productivity would benefit from it and as with looking and
feeling more like chrome, well there's a reason I'm using
Firefox. But all's well as long as I keep to decide how it
will look and feel at my end.

Cheers!

Ari, if you don't just reposition the popup bookmarks menu, give options to hide/remove the fixed system menuitems "Subscribe to page, Unsorted etc"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for your answer and pointing me to the right direction. Now I rate 5 stars and I can additionally hide the leftover menu separators ;)

/* Hide fixed Separators */
#classic_BMB_bookmarksPopup > menuseparator:nth-child(2),
#classic_BMB_bookmarksPopup > menuseparator:nth-child(4),
#classic_BMB_bookmarksPopup > menuseparator:nth-child(8),
#classic_BMB_bookmarksPopup > menuseparator:nth-child(10)
visibility:collapse !important;
}

/* Hide the last Separator */
.hide-if-empty-places-result {
visibility:collapse !important;
}

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8). 

Adding options to such a small add-on would be an overkill. Also Firefox and the default bookmarks menu do not offer options to hide fixed items.

However, adding extra code to a Stylish profile will hide unwanted items:

/* hide 'View Bookmarks Toolbar' */
#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button #BMB_viewBookmarksToolbar {
visibility:collapse !important;
}
/* hide 'Show All Bookmarks' */
#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button #BMB_bookmarksShowAll {
visibility:collapse !important;
}
/* hide 'Bookmark This Page' */
#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button #BMB_bookmarkThisPage {
visibility:collapse !important;
}
/* hide 'Subscribe to This Page' */
#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button #BMB_subscribeToPageMenuitem {
visibility:collapse !important;
}
/* hide 'Unsorted Bookmarks' */
#classic_bm_button23-toolbar-button #BMB_unsortedBookmarks {
visibility:collapse !important;
}

Perfect addon for Australis interface.

Would it be possibile to expand Unsorted Bookmarks folder as a menu (like in Australis) ?

Thank you

Yes, this is possible.

Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice and useful addon that allows the user to see the bookmarks button at all times,even with the file menu toggled on (which IMHO had to be possible to begin with,why not leave that choice?)

Add-on working. Thanks. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

<del>I upgraded from FF 22.0 to 24.0. Installed your add-on. The drop down bookmarks tool still not sticking.</del>.

Made the mistake of installing the add-on in FF 22.0 and then upgrading to 24.0. Uninstalled in FF 24.0, re-installed the add-on and it is working fine now.

Thanks Aris. I went without updating from 22.0 for nearly 2 months now because of this bug. Now I am updated and elevated. :)

Add-on works as desired Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Add-on works as I desire, bypasses this problem for me, simply replaces the drop-down Bookmark button that un-sticks/hides when the menu bar is visible. .

Quoted from cor-el from Mozilla support forum:
"You only see the Bookmarks Menu button if the menu bar with the Bookmarks menu is hidden. Otherwise this button will be hidden once you close the Customize window."
