Removing icons from Bookmarks bar


#1

New to Brave and am excited about it!

One thing which is driving me nuts as I attempt to learn how to use this browser: I imported my Bookmarks Bar from Safari, but it also imported an icon before each site nickname, which I really don’t want. I’m sure some people love them, but I find them distracting and a waste of precious space.

Some Google searching says that there should be a way to manage this in Preferences/Settings > General, but my Preferences/Settings menu doesn’t offer a General tab; I only get People, Autofill, Appearance, Search engine, Default browser, Sync, and On startup.

I’m on Version 0.59.34 Chromium: 72.0.3626.81, the latest version as of 2019-02-02. How do I customize the browser to get rid of these icons? I prefer the simple unobtrusive line of text from Safari.

Thanks for the feedback @Dunan,

Currently there’s no option to customize bookmarks bar. We’ve an issue logged here https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/2740

Thanks

Thanks for the confirmation! It looks like previous versions of the
browser, or versions on other platforms, let you do this, so I was
left totally confused as to why I couldn’t. For now I’ve just
eliminated the bookmarks bar entirely.

Hi @Dunan,

Prev. Brave (muon) - 0.25.x - have this option. But this version has been replaced by the new Brave (brave-core) - 0.59.x and higher. And the new version not yet have this option yet. The issue linked above is to bring back the option to the new version. :slightly_smiling_face:
