Firefox Puzzle Bars: Stash Your Icons Wherever

Take the functionality of your add-ons and extensions a step further by controlling where your icons show up on in the browser window. Puzzle Bars is a Firefox add-on that allows placing your icons anywhere you want.

The convention is that add-on icons reside on the right of the address bar, but if you have a whole lot, it might be hard to see them all. Being able to control your icons makes it that much easier to access a particular add-on whenever you may need it.

For example, you can put your icons inside the address bar. If you do not fancy this arrangement, then make a lateral or a bottom toolbar. Anywhere you want.
