Wonderful Add-on Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Great help in cleaning up the evermore cluttered Firefox main toolbar...

Almost perfect (with workaround) Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

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
Restart Firefox
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
Restart Firefox

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?

EDIT:
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.

Excellent addon Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

This is a great addon that fixes one of Mozilla's very silly decisions, and works exactly as advertised.

However, the addon seems to have problems with other extensions, custom themes and userChrome.css changes, and so I would propose the author make a CSS update in starinurlextra.css (this is for the Windows version, which is the only one I use):

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);
@-moz-document url(chrome://browser/content/browser.xul){
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button .toolbarbutton-icon {
border:0 !important;
background-color:transparent !important;
list-style-image: url("chrome://star-in-urlbar/skin/windows/starbutton1.png");
-moz-image-region: rect(0px 18px 18px 0px);
}
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button:hover .toolbarbutton-icon {
border:0 !important;
background-color:transparent !important;
list-style-image: url("chrome://star-in-urlbar/skin/windows/starbutton1.png");
background-image: radial-gradient(circle closest-side, hsla(45,100%,73%,.3), hsla(45,100%,73%,0));
-moz-image-region: rect(0px 36px 18px 18px);
}
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button:hover:active .toolbarbutton-icon {
border:0 !important;
background-color:transparent !important;
list-style-image: url("chrome://star-in-urlbar/skin/windows/starbutton1.png");
background-image: radial-gradient(circle closest-side, hsla(45,100%,73%,.1), hsla(45,100%,73%,0));
-moz-image-region: rect(0px 54px 18px 36px);
}
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button[starred] .toolbarbutton-icon {
border:0 !important;
background-color:transparent !important;
list-style-image: url("chrome://star-in-urlbar/skin/windows/starbutton2.png");
-moz-image-region: rect(0px 18px 18px 0px);
}
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button[starred]:hover .toolbarbutton-icon {
border:0 !important;
background-color:transparent !important;
list-style-image: url("chrome://star-in-urlbar/skin/windows/starbutton2.png");
background-image: radial-gradient(circle closest-side, hsla(45,100%,73%,.3), hsla(45,100%,73%,0));
-moz-image-region: rect(0px 36px 18px 18px);
}
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button[starred]:hover:active .toolbarbutton-icon {
border:0 !important;
background-color:transparent !important;
list-style-image: url("chrome://star-in-urlbar/skin/windows/starbutton2.png");
background-image: radial-gradient(circle closest-side, hsla(45,100%,73%,.1), hsla(45,100%,73%,0));
-moz-image-region: rect(0px 54px 18px 36px);
}
}

Adding border and background-color rules should (mostly) invalidate the default Firefox button styling, which is admittedly to blame for the problem, and not the extension author.



Also, adding the function of this old unsupported extension:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/draggable-star/
Would make this extension a must-have for every power-user out there, as well as address the complaints with the bookmark menu. I understand that may be too much work, though.

Thanks for your support. I can add the extra css code, if this improves star appearance for some themes. I haven't seen anything wrong with Fx default themes.

I will look into the draggable star add-on, but most likely this feature won't be added to this extension.
SIU only moves the default bookmarks button into urlbar, it does not add any new functions or features.

Neat little add-on. Works exactly as described.

Only issue so far is that I've not worked out how to set the default bookmarks folder to save bookmarks in.

CTRL + D puts a bookmark into the Bookmarks Menu but clicking on the star adds it to Unsorted Bookmarks - you can only change the folder by clicking on the star again and picking another folder.

EDIT:

Thanks for the prompt reply Aris.

Yeah, I've done some more digging and indeed firefox has default behaviours when bookmarking a page. They are as I've described.

There's a useful support.mozilla.org thread on the matter. Look for Cor-el's reply for superb clarity on the subject:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/986106

I've tried his recommended add-on (add bookmark here 2) - it achieves the save bookmark behaviour that I want (although I needed to change a couple of settings in the options page). I can now specify a folder to save my bookmarks in (and firefox remembers this location). Just note that you need to uncheck “insert bookmarks to the top of menu” under “miscellaneous”, in order to achieve the original CTRL + D behaviour when clicking on the star.

Thanks btw for the bookmark button tip. I've had to resort to "Classic theme restorer", in order to just have a bookmark button that opens the sidebar alone.

Once again, extensions devs come to the rescue. Thank you all.

This add-on puts the 'star'-part of the default bookmarks toolbar button into the urlbar. So everything this button can do or can not do is controlled by Firefox.

In addition you might want to also install the actual 'bookmarks'-part of the default bookmarks toolbar button: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/classicbookmarksbutton/

Thank u!
I don't know what happened to my firefox29 that it just cannot add any bookmark...
But still I like this addon! :)

Try to create a new profile. Fx29+ update may have corrupted it.

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

yes! this brings back the blue bookmark star (i'm on osx), and moves the dialogue box back over to the right like in pre-FF29/australis...


once again, great job, aris!

Works great, but would be nice to have the star in higher resolution so that it looks good on a retina display...

Thanks, you fixed the no customizable bookmarks button on Firefox 29! This little addon works great with any theme in Linux.

Simple and effective Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Does the job nicely.
However, any chance of having the option to make the star blue in Windows to match the "Edit This Bookmark" popup?
Or alternatively turn the popup on yellow :-)

Also:
Another way of getting the bookmarks folder back on the toolbar is to move the "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" from the Bookmarks Toolbar to the Location Bar.
Then create a bookmark in the bookmarks menu with the location:

place:folder=BOOKMARKS_MENU

Then move it to the Bookmarks Toolbar folder. It should give you a button with the Bookmarks Menu contents in it.
Leave the name of the bookmark blank to have it just show as a button/folder.

It should be possible by overriding button states using default image paths and icons in a Stylish profile (or maybe in userChrome.css too), but default bookmarks button only offers two icons (blue/gray) for bookmarked and not bookmarked states, while this add-on provides three states.


#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button .toolbarbutton-icon,
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button:hover .toolbarbutton-icon,
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button:hover:active .toolbarbutton-icon {
list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/Toolbar.png") !important;
-moz-image-region: rect(0, 144px, 18px, 126px) !important;
}
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button[starred] .toolbarbutton-icon,
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button[starred]:hover .toolbarbutton-icon,
#urlbar-icons #bookmarks-menu-button[starred]:hover:active .toolbarbutton-icon {
list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/Toolbar.png") !important;
-moz-image-region: rect(0, 162px, 18px, 144px) !important;
}

Nice trick to use a bookmarks folder to restore the bookmarks menu.
