Australis: bring back custom toolbar creation
Custom toolbars allow you, among other things, to have all buttons on one row and the urbar on another. That has not been the default for a long time (don't remember if ever) but ui customization allowed users to stick with what works for them and not have the latest fad forced on them. It is also a significant competitive advantage, other browser being less customizable. Why remove it?
I'm not seeing anything changed/removed on toolbar customization on Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:25.0) Gecko/20130710 Firefox/25.0. What exactly changed for you in the latest build?

This is about the UX/Australis builds. I believe it not being present is part of a conscious effort to slim down the browser chrome, but I'll let UX confirm that.

Summary: nightly-ux: bring back custom toolbar creation → Australis: bring back custom toolbar creation
Indeed, this was an intentional decision (along with removal of the add-on bar). Nutshell reason was that it's even less frequently used than the add-on bar, and isn't something we want to continue supporting as part of core Firefox. An addon could provide this functionality.

How about keeping the custom toolbar creation in some form to allow users to compensate for the addon bar (without installing an addon)?
