I use a 24" widescreen monitor at 1920x1200 res. Unfortunately this makes all my icons in the bookmark toolbar very small.

I have the regular navigation buttons set at normal size (no check in 'use small icons') and those are larger then then bookmark icons.

Anyway to increase the Bookmark Toolbar Icons' Size??

The large toolbar icons are 24px and large themes can increase that value, but favicons on the bookmarks toolbar keep their original size (usually 16x16).
You can try this code in userChrome.css to increase the icons:
Firefox 2:
#bookmarks-ptf .toolbarbutton-icon {height: 24px !important; width: 24px !important}
Firefox 3:
#personal-bookmarks .toolbarbutton-icon {height: 24px !important; width: 24px !important}

Hi,

unfortunately I cannot make much sense out of the above post. I added the line

#personal-bookmarks .toolbarbutton-icon {height: 24px !important; width: 24px !important}

to the end of my my firefox 3 userChrome.css but it didn't make any difference. What I need to do is to increase the size of the toolbar icons and the font used in the firefox menus.

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Make sure that you add the lines to userChrome.css in the chrome directory within the Firefox profile folder.

See Finding the profile folder on Windows
LINUX : ~/.mozilla/firefox/<Profile_name>/chrome/

You are answering to an old thread from 2008

You can try to increase the String pref layout.css.devPixelsPerPx from 1.0 to 2.0 in 0.1 steps to see what works best.
In Firefox 3.6 and later this pref is a String value parsed to a float and allows to fine tune the dimensions of all elements more precisely.

To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the Enter key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website.
If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.

The default value is "-1". Tried changing it to "-2" and nothing happened. Please help.

You need a positive value like 1.5, values below zero do not have effect.

It might be because of a grammatical error, it should say:

#personal-bookmarks .toolbarbutton-icon {height: 24px !important; width: 24px !important;}



Proper punctuation. ;)

Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

You can leave out a semi-colon ';' before the closing '}' , so that shouldn't be any problem.
I do that all the time without any problems.
Anyway, that was happening in 2008 as I wrote above, so it shouldn't matter right now.

Like you, I like large icons and text displayed in the bookmarks toolbar. For me, the easiest solution was to use a Firefox "large" theme such as "Aeon Jumbo" which solved all my problems in one fell swoop.

Hope this helps,

Eannes

I'm trying to get rid of my toolbar icons too. Above code in my mac pro Catalina, Firefox ver 70, laptop10/Library/Mozilla/chrome/userChrome (using TextEdit, to save, bounce Firefox back open, toolbar icons remain) - ugh. Help please?

I'm an IT installer and use single letters for my favs, past Firefox versions I've been able to eliminate the icons, I've attached an image, I've burnt hours on this, copied lots of code suggestions into userChrome w/o luck.

Hi,

I have recently added some bookmarks to my toolbar and I was wondering if and how I can add a little picture or icon next to the Name of the bookmark (like the little horse or whatever it is next to the "getting Started" bookmark)

Sorry this is probably really straight forward and my 5 year old son could would be able to work it out but I am however, technologically challenged.

Thank you for you for your valued time. Looking forward to hearing from you

Regards, Kirsty

Chosen solution

I'm having some trouble with your question. Usually when you save a bookmark to the Bookmarks Toolbar it comes complete with icon and over-long title. The title can be abbreviated right down to nothing.

Try this. Open the Customize palette via the 3-Bar button, and right down the bottom under Mode check that "icons and text" is selected.

The Bookmark text and icons are too big. Is there any way to make the bookmarks toolbar smaller?

Right click on the Menu Bar and select Customize from the context menu that pops up. Then put a checkmark in "Use Small Icons" and OK out. See if that helps.

@Gopher John, in Firefox 4.0 the bookmarks toolbar is *always* "small icons" regardless of that setting.

@OP, have you looked at userStyles.org or addons.mozilla.org for alternative themes and modifications?
