Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This add-on works perfectly, with one exception. The bookmark star appears on the right side of the URL window as it should, with all the functionality that used to be available in Firefox. However, after installing the add-on, not only did it hide "the default bookmarks toolbar menu button and bookmarks menu popup" (which is ok with me and disclosed by the developer), but it also hid the icons for six other add-ons that previously appeared on the right side of the URL bar. I was able to work around this problem as follows:
Disable the Star-Button In Urlbar add-on
Go to Firefox's customize screen
Click on "Show / Hide Toolbars" and check "Bookmarks Toolbar"
Drag the default bookmarks toolbar menu button and bookmarks menu popup from the URL bar to the bookmarks toolbar
Click on "Show / Hide Toolbars" and uncheck "Bookmarks Toolbar"
Enable the Star-Button In Urlbar add-on
And voila! The star button appeared on the URL bar in the address window, and the icons for all of my other add-ons are correctly displayed on the right side of the URL bar.
I hope this helps other users who might be having the same issue I had.
And Aris, thank you for developing this add-on, which provides critical functionality that was previously a default feature of Firefox and should be again.
Could you provide some details about your setup?
Which OS are you using?
Which other add-ons provide urlbar icons?
Can this be reproduced on a new Firefox profile?
Anyone who experienced this problem is welcome to test the beta build of 1.3 to verify, if the bug is fixed or still present.
