Toolbar Buttons 0.5

by Michael

It is that time of year again, time to get ready for the next big version of Firefox. So out comes the updates. This on is a bit earlier than I planed so some buttons missed out on the final mix. But there are still 16 new buttons. You can find out from the Button List which ones made it.

Toolbar buttons is now for the first time fully compatible with Firefox 3, and I managed to do it with out breaking too much in the way of Firefox 2 support. It turned out much better than I expected. The only ones I think I broke were the "Read Mail" and "Read News" buttons on Linux and Mac. These functions disappeared from the tools menu is Firefox 2, and the back end for them went in Firefox 3.

As I mentioned before this release was a bit earlier than I planed, I wanted to do a visual refresh too. I been working on making my own icon set, and will be changing over to it soon. Any ideas for improvements in the icons are welcome and it would be great if you could email me them.
