Build ID: 20131228030204

Steps to reproduce:

used the solution from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=939989


Actual results:

which obviously took away most of my toolbar


Expected results:

According to http://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2013/12/12/australis-for-add-on-developers-1/

[...]The objective is to maximize the content area available to users by cutting down chrome areas that were generally empty.[...]

it should give me more usable space. However in my case I cant even see a short web address anymore (see pic) and important icons are "hidden" under the arrows now.

How about just letting the user decide if he wants to use the chrome area for browsing or if he needs the status/tool/whatever-bar for different purposes?

There are multiple extensions that allow custom toolbars or the add-on bar to address your use case. One example is https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/

The extension could also be updated to use it's own customizable toolbar or at least give the option.

There doesn't seem to be any new information in the bug and it's not very constructive/actionable so I'm going to close it for now. We are aware that there are certain extensions that use a wide area and will keep it in mind.
