About this Add-on
I was inspired by this bug report https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=924204 :
Bug 924204 - Australis toolbar is too thick - chrome needs to be reduced in size
Steps to reproduce:
The URL-bar is enormous/thick. It takes up way too much vertical space. One of the things I love about the current firefox is how I can use "small icons" and reduce the size of the URL-bar to keep Firefox's chrome/URL-bar thin & out of the way as much as possible. Now Firefox is pushing itself in my face with no way to shrink it down. I want to focus on my web-browsing. Why must Australis be displayed so prominently? I do not spend my time staring at the URL-bar. I only reference it as needed for a second or two. It makes no sense from a use-standpoint to have such a large sized url-bar. The url-bar should be as thin and un-noticeable as possible.
The URL-bar should be reduced in size a LOT. Or an about-config setting should be added to allow users the ability to have "small icons/reduced url-bar size."
By the way this add-on initially was part of another add-on (Tab Tree, and they are fully compatible) but I decided to publish it as another separate add-on.
If you have Tab Tree you don't need to install this one. But it won't harm if you do.
