How to customize Firefox Social Icons?

I am currently using Firefox 18. I have enabled the Firefox Social icons as seen in this screenshot:

-ff-social.png

As is evident, they seem to be stretched. Is it possible to resize them back to their original size through userChrome.css or any other method?

i havent ried the social icons so this is a guess,
its possible they are stretching to fill the space they fit, so you could try adding some gaps between the social icons and the fb icon.
right click on the bar and select customize , drag the space from the customize window, and repeat the space drag until you have enough, whilst doing this see if the social icons change, they may not , as i said its just a guess.
failing that right click/customize trhen try dragging the icons to the left of the url bar and see if it makes a difference.

You can enable the same by setting social.enabled to true in about:config.

The 3 icons come together as a group and they are not because of any addon but through Firefox itself. The FB logo, however, is of the proper size.

changing the value to true enabled a side bar for facebook, i could not see the icons ,
unfortunately i cant see the icons so i can't replicate your issue.
im guessing adding spaces via the customize window didnt work

Apologies for not giving complete steps.

  1. Change social.enabled to true in about:config
  2. Click on the FB logo that now appears on the toolbar. (If not, get via customise menu)
  3. Click on "Not logged in"
  4. You will be redirected to the facebook home page to login
  5. Wait for a few seconds so that FF detects the cookies and the icons will apear next to the logo as in the screenshot.
