Unfortunately the <hbox> that holds those icons doesn't have an id attribute, making it hard to overlay things in it. I'd like to see an id attribute added to that <hbox>.

Created attachment 198325 [details] [diff] [review] Adds id to hbox I think something like this would help (not sure about the id name though).
If this were done, I think it'd make sense to do it for Firefox 1.5. Setting blocking1.8b5? so that it at least gets considered.
this is not a stop ship bug. Would consider a r/sr'ed patch for the id change at a later date if the firefox MOAs are ok with that.

Yeah, I guess 1.8b5 was a little too soon (didn't realize it was coming up so quickly). I do think it'd be nice if this change could get before 1.5 ships. In Firefox 1.0 you can add buttons next to the RSS feed icon without a problem. Firefox 1.5 moves the RSS feed icon up to the URL bar, but extension authors won't be able to do the same thing very easily...
What can I do to get this change moving forward? Obviously it won't get into 1.5, can it be added to the trunk?
