Lift Bookmarks Bar Character Limit



  • It seems that folder names in the bookmarks bar are restricted to a set number of characters; if you pass that limit an ellipsis is displayed. Would be nice to make that limit larger... see screen shot:

  • As far as I can see there is no such limit. Change the width of the bar and you can see all characters.

    @ghpy There is no limit on the Bookmarks Panel or the Bookmarks Menu, but there is on the Bookmarks Bar.

    It would be good if the Bookmarks Menu could have a limit set.



  • As ghpy originally suggested, this happens not due to any character limit but due to a width limitation:

    .bookmark-bar button { 
        max-width: 120px
    }
    

    Change it to none and no more ellipses.
    Again, strange limitation best removed IMO...

    I don't find anything strange about it. Space on the Bookmarks Bar is limited. If a user has a lot of folders it will soon fill up.

    I have a 1600x1200 monitor and I don't display all of my bookmarks on the Bookmarks Bar, so I still have about one third of the space free, but not if I rotate the monitor to portrait, as I often do; then I have space for one more folder.
