Windows 7: Reclaim Vertical UI Space by Adding a Toolbar to the Left/Right Side

Reclaim Vertical UI Space by Adding a Toolbar to the Left/Right Side

Do you need to make the most efficient use possible of vertical UI space on your systemís screen, but have horizontal space to spare? Now you can shift the toolbar icons and their awesome functionality to a slim sidebar in Firefox using the Vertical Toolbar extension. As you can see above the sidebar even picked up on our Personas Theme to help it blend in nicely with the rest of the browser. You can access the options for the new toolbar by right clicking within the toolbar area.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

A vertical tool bar makes sense with the modern wide screen monitors.
With Opera & lots of tabs open i have the tab bar on the left with the text showing its much easier finding a tab if you have more than 20+ tabs open.
Just tried it out with Firefox b11 it seems more like a replacement for Opera's side panel but with less options.
Seems easier just to use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl B , Ctrl H & Ctrl J for bookmarks , history & downloads

White noise on left speakers/left side of headphone
There's this annoying white noise on my left speakers(Logitech X-540 Speakerset), though I think it's not my speakers that are causing it, but something else, because when I connect my iPod to my speakers there's no white noise. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get rid of this...
