 > Here's a proposed patch to try to clean up the toolbar:
 > https://github.com/arthuredelstein/tor-browser/commit/26237
 > I moved the HTTPS-Everywhere button off the toolbar by default, because
 it's rarely needed, but I left the NoScript button visible for temporary
 whitelisting purposes. (The HTTPS-E button can still be found in the
 Customize panel.)
 > I removed the search box and the "Flexible Space" around the URL bar, to
 give more room for v3 .onion domains. This seems OK given that the URL box
 also behaves as a search box.

 One thing which is very handy is the search engine drop down in the search
 box. DDG often has not the up-to-date content I need, so I can easily
 select a different search engine for that purpose. Is that possible with
 the URL bar, too? If not, I think we should get the search box back. In
 general, I think we should get as close as possible to the layout which we
 have in the current stable and then open a ticket for redoing the toolbar
 properly together with ux-team input in case we feel we need that. (So,
 yes, no Home button)

 > I also included the Downloads button, but it auto-hides as long as no
 items have been download.
 > Here's what the result looks like:
 > [[Image(toolbar_26237.png)]]
 > Question: do we want to include a bookmarks button? It's not present in
 TBB 7.5 but maybe it's nice to have.
