I’ve been using Prefbar continuously for years ever since I found a review of it about 3 or 4 years ago in a computer magazine – and that was when it was version 1 or 2. I’d hate to think of what using a browser would be without it.

I’m use it to effortlessly turn on/off cookies, on/off flash, clearing history, clearing cache, turning popups, javascript and images on/off when needed ..... and much more – such as turning background color off when you can’t read the text on a page displayed with a dark background.

Once you customize the toolbar with the options that you’d like to use, it’s just one click to select what you want Prefbar to do. If you don’t want/like the toolbar taking up display space, simply press F8 or F11 to make it disappear ….. and now I see there’s the new PrefBar menu button you can use in lieu of the tool bar.

It’s my #1 Firefox addon. Thanks so much to the developer.

simply love it
newer version has some issues, but I can't imagine browsing without it.
The ability to turn on/off flash java(script) images etc with the a mouse click.
Just hope the author adds support for adobe pdf plugin.

But I cannot understand what must I do...
Is it possible to downgrade from 5ver. to 4ver?
I want to have just one extra menu item with prefbar items

Although the PrefBar add-on web page states: The bar itself may be moved using the browser built-in "toolbar customize" feature to anywhere you like (even in foreign toolbars, next to the menubar, ...).
This is no longer an offered feature in the 5.x version. Reverting to the 4.3.2 version until the developer catches this issue seems to be the only solution for getting back browser screen space

An excellent, time-saving add-on with macros automating routine tasks. One MAJOR complaint - when moving form version 4 to 5,t the single most useful feature allowing PrefBar to be relocated next to the main Firefox drop-down menus, thereby giving considerably more room for the Firefox browser window - this feature was inexplicably lost, much to the dismay of many. Even though this issue has been widely discussed, the developer has seen fit not to fix the problem. Beware the loss of browser screen space. Consider uninstalling version 5 and replacing with version 4 until the problem is handled

This still works. It just works different, now. PrefBar cloned a Firefox feature for a long time to keep compatible with SeaMonkey 1.x. As I dropped support for SM 1.x, I decided to drop my duplicated code and use what Firefox and SM 2.x already has: The built-in toolbar customize feature.

So to move PrefBar's stuff to the menubar, do the following: Enable PrefBar (F8), right-click on the menubar and choose "Customize...". Then you'll see an item "PrefBar toolbar items" lying on PrefBar's toolbar. You may move this via drag&drop to the menubar or anywhere you want it.

Result would be the third screenshot:

I was using it long ago.
I like it very much.
I feel bad about not installed it.
Because I long for the Japanese version, which uses English. Multilingual thank you to all means.

menubar

It has been replaced with the new "PrefBar menu button". See here:

As this may be placed to anywhere in the toolbars and not just to the menubar, this should be more useful than a static menubar item.
