I can't believe how hard this particular thing is. i want to get rid of the stupid rss feed and bookmark icons in my firefox addressbar, and it seems to be a suspiciously difficult task. I'm shocked there isn't an addon or greasemonkey script that just does this. The solution I've discovered is to go in your user folder and do some code changes to the userChrome.css file. So, I don't really want to do this because it seems like there should already be a button or something that takes care of this.
First of all, why would firefox have a file like that with the word "Chrome" in it?? How is that not a problem knowing that their competitor is the Chrome browser from Google?? Makes no sense to me. Whatever.
