Windows 7: Can I customize the Favorites Bar be more than one row?

Can I customize the Favorites Bar be more than one row?

When you fill up the Favorites Bar, the ">>" icon appears from which you can select the additional icons.

But it would be nice if I could just size the Favorites Bar to be, for example, two rows instead of just one.

Is there a way to customize this or some add-on utility that gives me this functionality?

What browser are you talking about?

Firefox: Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar

IE8: Only thing I can think of is using Links & Favorites

Ooops, forgot to mention...I'm using IE8.

Yeah, I know about the icons-only option, but that doesn't work for me. I also have already manually shortened the text labels, so the short-text option doesn't apply, either.

I was hoping that maybe there'd be an add-on or something that would give this feature.

Windows 7 32 bit

The only one I've seen that works smoothly is Opera. It's built in. I've tried a bunch of Firefox chrome script hacks. They seem to work until you resize Firefox. Then you lose the vertical scrollbar.

Even the AddOn one in the link above I notice all the comments posted are negative.

My "solution" for Firefox is to have all folders on the Bookmarks toolbar except for one bookmarklet that backs up 2 pages when you click it. That way I can add bookmarks in categories without going off the edge.

Plus using GradientICool theme makes the text a bit smaller without eliminating it.
