Thanks to the previous reviewer for mentioning The Button. Another "duh" moment for me too. So now I only wonder, since the ticker IS a "bar", if it could be made selectable via toolbar menu, as I have many buttons already (Ah, yes, First World Problems;)
Just need to get in the habit now of killing the ticker before killing Firefox, otherwise my poor old T5500 chip takes awhile getting everything going again.
I wonder whether any developers have considered Delayed Startup for demanding extensions!
Yeah, I know I just need a better machine, but am going to check out the "FeedRoller RSS Ticker" app now. Others desiring egg in their beer may wish to do the same.
