One of my regular reader asked me the question as to how to delete a custom toolbar in Firefox. If you have not already read about how you can create a custom toolbar in Firefox, you can do so by reading the post I had written some time back about How To Create a customized toolbar for Firefox.
Getting back to the question Maya Asks me
About Firefox, I do some blogging, and made a new tool bar to use for the blogging related buttons and named it "blog" toolbar. Later on I was able to fit in all my buttons on the regular two toolbars and had no need for this anymore. But there is no option to delete one. I do hide it, but it pops out on every restart of the browser, a blank toolbar taking up precious screen space and I have to hide it again, which is very irritating.
The answer to the question is not pretty straight forward and once again there is no outright way in which you can delete the toolbar. To remove the toolbar completely you have to remove all the buttons from the toolbar one by one from the customized toolbar. Here is a step by step way you can remove a customized toolbar.
I have added a custom toolbar called Reader Query for the purpose. If you want to know more about creating a customized toolbar please read my earlier post on How To Create a customized toolbar for Firefox.
Removing the Customized Toolbar
The first step you will have to undertake is to again choose to customize the toolbar once again. To do this right click anywhere on the Customized toolbar you created and click on the customize option.
Once you have clicked on the customize option you will see a new window popup where you can customize your toolbar. In the custom toolbar Reader Query I have added 5 buttons. To delete the toolbar you will need to drag the button from the customized toolbar back to the popup window, once all the buttons are dragged back click on done. Once you have deleted all the buttons the toolbar will be deleted.
