I still use this in v17 for the tiny menu icon. Combined with disabling the menu bar and putting all my buttons in the nagivation toolbar, it saves a lot of screen real-estate. I hate the orange Fx button - or ANY application crap in the titlebar as it messes up my Windows setup.
after release Firefox 17 this addons no longer hide Menu bar
This was an excellent add-on in it's day, but I thought I would point out something I just now discovered for myself: for all of you who come here wishing this didn't mess with your bookmark functionality, I'm betting the add-on maker isn't updating it because this functionality has been incorporated into Firefox itself. If you disable this add-on and restart, then right-click on any of the toolbars and uncheck "menu bar" then you get an orange Firefox button beside the tab bar, exactly as this extension gives you. There's no need for other versions of this extension, unless you like the cosmetic look of those alternatives, or you want to customize what appears in the menu that pops out when you click the Firefox button.
Это расширение конфликтует с расширением Add Bookmark Here ² - не дает редактировать место расположения закладки.
Indeed this extension now prevents FF 14 from asking where to save new bookmarks. Please fix this. I've been using the extension since it's release and need it. :)
used it for a long time but i have just disabled it till a fix for this problem...
as this addon break bookmarking function in firefox 13 and 14..
clicking star icon bookmark the page, but when click star icon again to edit the bookmark popup menu doesn't show to edit or remove the bookmark..
a Fix for this will be so appreciated. Thank you.
This addon is essential for anyone using a netbook and wanting maximum screen space. However I have just had to roll back to firefox 11 for now as in firefox 14 this addon doesn't appear to work properly. Hopefully fixed soon as I couldn't live without it :)
This plugin is a real space-saver on smaller screen... The only flaw I'm experiencing, is it lacks support for Lightning's 'edit event' dialog... Would be nice to have this added!!
If this addon is enabled, CTRL+M or clicking on 'bookmark this page' won't work.
This is impacting the version 4.3.1
1) Since version 13 when I do I bookmark this page over the box or I could change the name and put what I want. It happens automatically.
2) I open this box on one of the links saved in bookmarks is going to see the property. After I click cancel on the box should close but nothing happens I have to click on the cross to close it.
After having Compact Menu 2 4.3.1 Disable all returned to normal.
Thank you to fix this problem.
me too after many dis/enabling of all my addons
have discovered the bug on bm button w/ FF13
as signaled by Michael2012 bizhkom and denniscuddles.
But ,waiting for a real fix from Milly, i've also tried some biz
and found that crazily a previous version work better
apparently w/o that bug.
Thus for me ,under Unix/Linux, CM2-4.0 is fine w/ FF13.
Moreover you have to disable the compatibility check
coz that version is declared working only for FF3.0 - 4.0b8pre ...
Compact menu has been one of my essential add-ons for years. Reluctantly, I'm disabling it until it lets me edit my bookmarks again. I do hope my wish is fulfilled as I really do miss it.
The same problem: after upgrading to Firefox 13.0 beta is not working button (star) "Add page to bookmarks" in the address bar.
With last update of FF 13.0 beta I face a bookmark conflict: it is no more possible to edit while saving a new bookmark nor through the star icon near the address in the navigation bar.
Hello, Milly! Many thanks for this Extension!
I'm think, it can be finally usefull if you may add to it a slight improvement in the foolproof style. Blocking please option, who present on Menu, who can be switch off displaying Pane who has the main Meny button like blue Globe. It is need because an user currently can close the Pane, who contains button to control main Menu of the Mozilla browser. It's totally destroying browser work!.. And these careless user is forced to disable the profile roughly extension to regain access to the menu... That not everyone knows how to put into practice...
Many-many thanks! :)
I'm with steven_lee. It not only compacted the Menu; it made the whole menu bar disappear & wouldn't let me add it back. Worthless.
The issue was with conflicting extensions. After I disabled them, Compact Menu 2 worked flawlessly.
Menubar is gone even if I select display menubar.
It is not the behavior what I expected when I click "Alt" key. It is better display menubar rather than display this compact menu.
This addon integrates so well in the firefox UI that I was tricked to think firefox 9 is finally putting that button there. What a foolish dream! How could I possibly imagined that Firefox devs have finally done some work in terms of menu usability?! Thank you Milly for correcting me!
Below is the original wrong review along with developers' response :)
thank you for this add-on. eased the pain for years. now that the feature is finally coming into firefox 9, maybe it's time for eol?
It is CM2's feature

"Menu" item in AppButton's menu is added by CM2.

After disabling all plugins and enabling just compact menu same issue. Tried reinstalling Sea monkey - no improvements. Feel free to contact me, I'm willing to help (test it) if I can. I use Sea monkey from the first day and before that Mozilla suite was my favorite browser. I had no problems in Sea monkey 2.0 and Compact menu. It collapsed all the menu items to a Sea monkey icon with drop down menu. Should it be that way in CM2?
This nice little add-on really saves valuable screen real estate. It should be standard in Thunderbird, just like it is in Firefox. Good work!
Better than Tiny Menu as it puts the compact menu in line with the tabs instead of taking up an entire bar.
Excellent tool! Thanks
I have been able to patch the install.rdf file of version 4.2.0 so hat it is accepted by Firefox 7.0.1 (and hopefully up to v.9)
It's available at
As fans of this add-on we know that you are working hard to update for FF7. This has been an awesome tool and makes the toolbars less cluttered. What makes this above all others is the ability to customize the way we want it and we can move it to whatever location we want! Great job MillyC!
Might have incompatibility issue with Favicon Picker 2
