Firefox users may soon have access to a single Extensions button in the browser's toolbar to manage all of the installed and enabled browser extensions.

Firefox extensions that are installed in the browser are added to the main toolbar by default. Users of the browser may interact with these directly, for instance to manage functionality or execute certain features the extensions provide.

Extension icons are pushed to the overflow section on the toolbar if space on the toolbar is not sufficient to display all extension icons. Firefox users have options to pin extension icons to the overflow menu to make room on the main toolbar.

Mozilla is working on integrating an Extensions button in the Firefox web browser. The button, which works similarly to the buttons in Chrome, Edge and other Chromium-based web browsers, reveals the list of installed and enabled extensions. Firefox users may pin extensions to the main toolbar for direct access.

The new unified extensions button displays a manage button next to each extension. Activation of the button displays the three options manage, remove and report.

The feature has landed in Firefox 105 Nightly, and is still in active development. Some functionality is still missing and it will take some time before the final version lands in Firefox Nightly and other development versions of the browser.
