The only element that is currently displayed in Firefox's Title Bar is the one-button menu. While it won't be there for much longer, I always felt that displaying only the menu button there was a colossal waste of space.
If you have used Firefox for a while you do know that it is possible to customize what appears on various toolbars, but the title bar is exempt from that cool feature.
Personal Titlebar changes that. Once installed in the browser, you will immediately notice that it adds the menubar, that is the menu that is displayed when you hit the Alt-key, to it so that you get direct access to the items here. This in itself can be useful as the single menu button does not list all the items that the menu bar lists.
What is probably more interesting than that is the ability to add icons and other elements of the browser to that bar so that they appear in the title bar of the browser.
Doing so may be useful for a number of reasons:
To customize the selection select View > Toolbars > Customize from the menu. A menu appears on the screen displaying icons and elements that are not used currently in the browser. You can drag and drop any element from the menu and most elements that are already displayed in the browser UI to the menu bar so that it is displayed there from that moment on.
The extension makes available additional features that you may like:
The default text style makes the menu items hard to read. To change that do the following:
Personal Titlebar is a useful add-on for the Firefox web browser even if you only want to add icons to the titlebar and hide the menu all the time.
