extensions.{3541c267-2580-4144-854e-2e05c8670121}.useCSEnh to true and restart to enable

Notes: Includes support for "Toolbar Bookmark Menu" (Toolbar Buttons), since it adds only a few bytes of code, but encountered issue listed at http://codefisher.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=881 so it couldn't be tested properly.
Some buttons added by other extensions may work fine with Stay-Open Menu w/o added support.

Known issue (Fixed in beta 2):
The auto-closing feature may get broken for items on the Bookmarks Toolbar after you have customized your toolbar (using 'Customize' or 'Toolbar Layout')..
