Put the Firefox 4 menu bar in the window title: Personal Titlebar extension
There is a developer in Taiwan working under the pseudonym yuoo2k - this is the one who once composed the “ Hide Menubar ” extension , showing the Firefox 4 menu bar after pressing the ALT key. In this way, it has become possible to keep the menu bar hidden most of the time (until it really becomes necessary), and thus save the vertical screen space.
Today I came to introduce you to the new work of this developer - with the extension “ Personal Titlebar ”, which also aims to save screen space at the expense of the menu bar, but uses a different approach: the contents of the menu bar are placed in the title bar of Firefox 4, replacing its plain text (name of page and browser).
Here’s how it looks with the example of Minefield (Firefox test nightly assembly): ')
I will say straight away: this example turned out to be somewhat chaotic, because it is a demonstration, and not taken from real life.
It shows that you can add various objects to the menu bar (using “View → Toolbars → Customize ...”): icons from the toolbar, bookmarks folders and individual bookmarks, a rotating download indicator, menu items - and all of them will be displayed in The title bar of the Firefox window.
Naturally, in real life, no one would even think of arranging such a dump in his menu bar.For example, I have only Firefox menu in it, and behind it (after the vertical separator) a number of folders with bookmarks.
The Personal Titlebar extension is based on the newest ability of the Firefox 4 browser to put XUL elements in the window title. Judging by Bagzilla , this ability has not yet been implemented in all systems. (For example, in Linux it is not there yet, but in OS X and in Windows it is.)
In particular, although in the above example, the modern design of Windows is used, XUL elements can also be displayed on top of the classic Windows XP theme (a blue bar ending with three gray window control buttons).Looks awesome.
