since 111.0 the new unified extensions button as a fixed place in the toolbar. I don't like it there and would want to remove it/move it to the overflow menu. Please make that possible again.
Also the menu needs to be easier/quicker to understand. Currently in german it is this way (used on yt as example) and you need to read way to much to understand what is going on:
At a glance all that looks fairly similar and doesn't provide the user with any benefits. I would suggest to change the current display system to something more practical. Add Categories with the applicalable permissions and just list the extensions below that with their icon and name.
Can always read and edit this website:
Needs permission to ...:
Has no permissions on this website:
That way you would always know at a glance which extensions have/want/don't have permission and wouldn't need to read every text on an unsorted list.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
You used to be able to hide this button using the extensions.unifiedExtensions.enabled setting in about:config. Now you can't even do that.
Looks like Mozilla has gone the "we know what you want more than you do" route.
I didn't ask for an unremovable, unconfigurable unified extensions button. I don't WANT it. Everything it does, I can find elsewhere in Firefox's menus and settings. I don't need a coder-enforced jigsaw icon adding clutter to my toolbar.
Having the same issue, last update forced the icon on my toolbar, AGAIN.
Funny how can I move and remove even vital functionality on the toolbar like the home, refresh, back button but this useless shortcut is being forced to be there for no reason at all.
This is such a useless and bothersome change. First off, forcing it onto the right makes it harder to use my rightfully placed far right button. I don't know where the idea of the far right is the least obtrusive place is to stick an icon so it's out of the way came from, but it's wrong and done by way too many. I've immediately uninstalled extensions I'd otherwise happily use because the programmer decided to force it to a convenient location to make my life easier.
Secondly, why a list of extensions? Most people keep their extensions on screen. The extra few is right there in overflow. Hated Chrome for forcing theirs on me. Usually it doesn't work when trying to add an extension to the toolbar. Now Firefox insists on doing it too. When did quick and efficient go out the window?
Thirdly, this adds another step to properly manage extensions, like if I have any disabled.
This thing is not even alphabatized, nor does it list all extensions. What a pointless downgrade to Firefox.
You're forgetting the OTHER thing that's broken related to this defect. It used to be that you could drag icons for the extensions you *WANTED* available on your toolbar to the Overflow Menu. Now that option is forbidden.
If the UI designers somehow have the delusion that the Extensions Button is somehow equivalent to it, well it isn't. You can't select ONLY the icons you want displayed, and the Extensions Button is far too fat and cluttered. Next thing you know they'll force the Pocket button to be non-removable, and they'll lock you out of configuring your start/home page. It's like using GNOME or MSWindows.
