How to add extra rows to Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar [Tip]

The Firefox Bookmark Toolbar gives you more direct access to your website bookmarks. You can add it to the browser by selecting the Open menu button > Customize > Show/ Hide Toolbars and Bookmarks Toolbar. However, the single row Bookmark Toolbar only fits a small number of bookmarks on it.

As such, what we need is a multirow Bookmark Toolbar. The MultiRow Bookmark Toolbar Plus Firefox extension adds exactly that to the browser. You can add MultiRow Bookmark Toolbar Plus to Firefox from this page. Click on the + Add to Firefox button, and then restart the browser.

Now click on the Open menu button and select Add-ons. Press the Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar Plus 1.2 Options button to open the window in the shot below. That window includes various options for the Bookmark Toolbar.
