reposition the navigation bar

My Firefox crashed first then the entire computer. After a system restore and reload Firefox I noticed that my navigation bar and the tab bar had changed places. Is any way to reposition or the other. I think remember me this option before. I find it useful to have the wrong tab directly above the window then the navigation above that bar.

Hello, at the moment you can always manually change behaviours - enter Subject: config in the address bar of firefox (confirmed the message information where it appears), search for the preference named browser.tabs.onTop & activate false by double-clicking it.

However this setting could lose its effect in a future version of the browser, for more information, see also

    Are there steps I can take to keep the fixed add-on icons in the navigation bar?

    Another option besides the extensions behaving badly. Sometimes, the file that stores the toolbar customizations is damaged and fails to update correctly at the end of your session (as causing many other strange symptoms).

    The file is not editable, but you can rename it and customize your toolbars from scratch.

    Open your current Firefox settings (AKA Firefox profile) folder using

    Help > troubleshooting information > "view file" button.

    Leave this window open, switch back to Firefox and output

    Pause while Firefox finishing its cleanup, then rename localstore.rdf to something like localstore.old

    Restart Firefox. I hope that now your preferred icon positions will be remembered.

  • Bookmarks appear on the Navigation bar

    I had everything set up so that from the top down, I got the menu bar, then the navigation bar, then my favorites and the stumbleupon toolbar. Since Firefox itself randomly updated this morning, the navigation bar traded places with my bookmarks and bars to stumble and the Customize menu refuses to save my changes and essentially forcing me to put everything back where it belongs to every time I open Firefox.

    I have not downloaded or installed everything recently and start in safe mode puts them in the right order, but then I've got tabs on top again and generally more problems than it fixed.

    Try the userChrome.css I posted in this thread:

  • How can I lock the toolbar of bookmarks to stay below the navigation bar? It moves above every time I open a new tab.

    Before the last update, my setup is: Menu bar, bar navigation, toolbar, bookmarks and tabs in that order from top to bottom. I have it configured to display the tabs do not if there is one. It starts so correct when I first open the browser, but if I start a 2nd tab Bookmarks toolbar passes over the top of the navigation bar. Is it possible to lock my settings?

    I'm having a similar issue, although mine happens when I start a new page instead of a new tab. Once I start a new page, it displays the bookmark above all bar, but go to personalization fills the installation with the bookmarks bar in its normal position. This will remain true until I start a new page regardless of the first being open or not. The current version is Ff36.0, it is not moved before the last big update. Uploaded images show from the beginning until the fixation with customization, note I do not click on anything else that customize, customization of the output.

  • Is there a way to show "Bookmark toolbar items" in the Navigation bar, without its setting in the overflow chevron?

    Today I updated to 31.0 30.0 FF, but he eventually change the placement of my toolbar items. Originally, I did ensure that bookmarks toolbar items were placed in the Navigation bar, as well as my icon options firefox 3-bar and bookmarks, download. But now, the bookmarks toolbar items is placed in the overflow chevron icon, as well as other elements of the toolbar (for example, downloading and the extension of Pocket icon).

    Is there a way to prevent this behavior, or should I try to move everything to another toolbar?

    Here are a few screenshots that describes my problem:
    Installation of original toolbar (30.0 FF):
    Changed the configuration of the toolbar (31,0 FF):

    In the previous thread we found not somehow integrated to move the items in toolbar of bookmarks on another bar that worked. See: why 31 FF no longer displays my items in toolbar bookmarks in an another toolbar. Maybe someone can develop a custom style rule or any other hack to make it work.

  • How to display the navigation bar in firefox 30

    I downloaded the version 30 this AM there is no navigation bar or the option for one. On the view menu, the navigation bar is not identified. If you go to customize the toolbars to hide has no option to toolbar navigation. I turned on all the display options, but do not get the navigation pane. The only way you can see is by placing the cursor on the lower part of the tab bar. It is truncated with about 2/3 of the width of the page. I want the width of the entire page and I want it to be displayed permanently. All I can find is for people who want to hide navigation bar, and I searched through those thinking maybe I could debone it, but no luck.

    Another problem is that if you use colorful tabs only the tab you are on is colorful - the rest are grayed out. What the hell happened?


    Safe mode starts now shift and launching of FF. Using the alt key did nothing.

    I start in safe mode and the problem was not there. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it was back again.

    I was unable to follow the instructions for localstore.rdf. I was unable to open the current folder (AKA Firefox profile) settings Firefox by these instructions. The first two were not present and about: support simply takes you to a bunch of links to troubleshooting.

    Then I launched Firefox as a reset and now it looks like and acts properly. I had hoped to avoid a lot of time and a trial / error issues, but it wasn't only doesn't have to be. Thanks for trying to help!

  • Why control 'Reload current page' has been moved to the navigation bar 29 Firefox? I wish I could put it where I had it in Firefox 28.

    After completing the download of Firefox 29 I tried to reorganize my buttons\controls to where I used to have them in Firefox 28 and earlier versions. I noticed, in particular, that the 'reload current page' control is no longer available to be located in front of the navigation bar where I got it for years. The reason why I chose Firefox was in the first place because I could customize to my liking. I know that you can just right click and "Recharge" tab or just get used to go all the way (right side) of the bar of navigation but that defeats the purpose entirely for me.

    Here's an analogy; Ford decides that they will replace now current car models to the United States with British standard style vehicles. All cars sold by Ford will now be right steer. While this may seem like a "No biggy" to some, others, especially those of us who are prone to driving manual transmission vehicle, maybe a little resistant to this change. You do not know if I managed to make my point of view or not, but I hope that I did.

    Initially I thought I would start by "is someone fell and hit their head?" or "did Steve Ballmer suddenly support Mozilla, especially the version of Firefox 29, because it feels like a Windows 8 (aka the aroma of a tank full of sewage on a hot day)?" It is understood that updates are needed and as a computer scientist, I was around for many odd where the folds just to settle. They occur. Perhaps some consideration will be Firefox 30 to those of us in States that are used for vehicles left direction.

    I may be missing something here and fall on my sword if this is the case, but there is no indication that I've seen at the sight of Mozilla that the 'reload current page' control cannot be manipulated somehow update Firefox 29. The good side of things, I now have a good reason to go back and review some of the browsers that I cut back in the day when I decided to go with Firefox.

    As far as I know, the Restorer of classic theme Add on is the only way to move the button reload outside the address bar.

    1. Classic restaurateur theme installation and restart Firefox when prompted.
    2. Open the modules (Ctrl + Shift + A Manager; Mac: Command + shift + A), then the Extensions category.
    3. Beside the classical restaurant theme, click on the Options button.
    4. On the main tab, make sure that 'Mobile back-forward button' and 'hide urlbars stop & reload buttons' is checked. You can also check "combine stop & reload buttons. Close the options window when finished.
    5. Right-click on a zone empty of the tab bar and select Customize.
    6. Do slide forward/backward buttons, Stop and reload on the navigation toolbar.
    7. Click the Customize the output at the bottom right button when finished.

    That being said, I must point out that you can reload pages in other ways.

    • Make a right click No matter what tab and choose reload.
    • Right click on a box empty page and choose reload.
    • Press F5.
    • Press Ctrl + R (Mac: command-R).

    How can I customize the navigation bar in Firefox 29? I wish I had the back refresh/stop button in front of the navigation bar!

    One of the developers has been around the forum recently try to answer some of these questions then I quote the developer

    For the entire quote and useful links for corrections and explanations please see

    Each setting you see in a computer program you use requires work; when a developer wants to build something new or improve something, he or she has to go through each related (hidden) setting and test if it still works like before and do that on each platform Firefox runs on. That's Apple's Mac OSX, various flavours of Linux and various flavours of Windows, including Windows XP. This costs time, lots of it, and that amount grows exponentially with each setting that's added. This comes on top of our work to continuously fix, improve and innovate Firefox.
  • How to remove the navigation bar?

    I used to be able to remove the navigation bar before update of today. But now he is no longer an apparent option to remove the navigation bar. I like to see several portrait pictures side by side, so have more vertical space in my window is important to me. The navigation bar is quite large, as well as the blue space around the tabs, and I wish to remove or reduce. I know how to disable the menu bar already.

    Yes I know pressing f11 fullscreens an image. I use multiple monitors and want some pictures of great portrait orientation on one while I tap on the other. Is there a way to delete the temporarily navigation bar? This was one of my favorite features.

  • The Navigation bar is missing, where can I find it?

    I looked for the navigation bar by clicking on the open space and try to find the buttons and had no luck. I checked 'see' think it might be there. When I right click the only options I have are the menu bar and bookmarks bar. I want to reload, stop and my back forward button. If you could help me please I would be very happy. Firefox has always been my favorite browser and I'm upset that I can't find my navigation bar. Thank you!

    The Navigation bar is the toolbar, which shows the screenshot of the tab bar the bar (address) on this subject.

    Firefox uses a combined Stop/Reload/Go button that is placed at the right end of the address bar.

    • You get a stop button while page is loading which becomes a button recharge when the end of the loading of the page
    • You get a button go if you change the contents of location bar
    • Click the Reload button to duplicate the current tab in a new tab

    There is now a big container that contains toolbar address and back and buttons forward, the combined Stop/Reload/Go button located at the right end of the address bar.

    This got container is locked in position on the Navigation toolbar and cannot be moved.

    This change has also to the fact that you can hide is more the Navigation bar, if you don't see this bar from the context menu of the toolbar area.

  • How can I combine the navigation bar and the menu bar on the same line to save space?

    V29 Firefox seems to be a huge not backward in customization. I need to save room for the content so already I disabled the tabs and combined in the menu bar and the navigation bar on the same line. The url space is too long anyway. Now with v29 all my customization is gone and I can't get it back. I can move me is more points on the navigation bar to combine it with the menu bar. Why this was done? It limits only my ability to customize my browser? I'm very frustrated that you had a great browser and ruined.

    You should see Classic theme restaurateur, it contains many parameters. This module applies to customize Firefox 29.

  • Two extensions that I place on the navigation bar are moved to the bottom of the status bar when I left and reopen firefox

    The self-destruction of cookies and spoofer random agent have all two icons for the addons. I move the icons until the navigation bar where they sit and function while I use firefox. I then quit firefox normally and when I open it up, icons are back in the status bar. I have active sync I think that maybe that's the problem, but I still have to test this.

  • Dropbox for bookmarks or downloads of the navigation bar adds space between the navigation bar and bar bookmarks.

    When I press the button edit bookmark or download the toolbar for navigation that a line of space appears between the navigation bar and the bookmarks toolbar. This problem is corrected when I start Firefox in safe mode, but not when I boot normally and disable all addons. Please tell us how to solve this problem. Reseting Firefox and install all add ons still causes too many problems, so I hope to be able to solve this problem without reset.
