    there is an 'information area in the address entry box of 'flexible' size, which sometimes is taking up a disproportionate amount of the entry area. is there any way to stop it from appearing?

    example:

    Isn't that the address (URL) area you can type into?

    sort of, the area you are allowed to type into is just right of the red circle, there is a faint divider bar you may not notice. on THIS site there is a small 'i' in a circle and a green lock icon, no divider and the https:// url. it varies from site to site.

    another sample: the site title shows if i go to the https:// version, but not if i go to the http:// one. on other sites it may be the other way round.

    I see what you mean now. I went to mozilla.org. I suspect there is a about:config setting that controls it but I don't know what it is.

    If you click o nit you can view the certificate info for the site which is why you only see if via https.

    (There's probably a manifest somewhere you might be able to modify, but, that's too much work risking crippling the add-on!)

    example:

    That's the 'Nature of the Beast', loaded from an extension, nothing you can do about the length of the name, 'cept maybe email the dev and see if he'll shorten the name in the next update.

    You could perhaps, get rid of some of those dead space areas:

    loaded from extension? why does it also happen on web pages? if i could use fixed spaces in 'customise' i would regain some space, eliminating the uncontrollable 'flexible' space cramps the icons together with no way to group them. and the site title still takes up too much room. wherever the variable gets it's string from, there should be a way of intercepting and resetting/zeroing it, or not displaying it at all, in userchrome.css or stylish.

    i shall grin and bear it for now, i'll drop a line to the caret developer as his extension is what drew my attention to it and is particularly long and noticeable on a 'new tab' page.

    thanks for the replies.

    AHA! figured it out!

    I added the following line to my userchrome.css file:

    #identity-icon-label { display:none!important; }

    It goes just under the @namespace line at the top.

    I still get the geen https lock icon, or the extension icon, but the text has gone. Problem solved.
    (clicking the circled 'i' shows the info should i still want to see it.)

    The search for a fixed space for customising continues....

    This is cool:

    Of the six browsers I have installed, Nightly 59.0a1 is the only one that resumes playing where you left off on YouTube videos if you refresh the page!
