Re: Suggestion for default toolbar settings

Two toolbars by default is using up a large piece of precious screen

Can someone provide the reason why it's two again? I have a suspicion it
was something to do with "small screens", but perhaps there was another

The relevant thread is here:

Related bug:

For the lazy reader, the key argument from that bug reads:

1 The Toolbar and Address Bar being welded together, leaving no room for
any buttons besides the standard four (Back, Forward, Stop, and Reload)

2 Even for advanced users, the toolbar layout is annoying. The shortened
address field doesnt show as much of a URI, and the auto-completion menu
doesnt show as much of an auto-completion title, as it does in competing
