#9511 closed defect (fixed)

Status bar icon unnecessarily large

As of HTTPS Everywhere 3.3.2, the icon in the Firefox status bar is made unnecessarily large by the number indicating how many sites were matched. This makes the entire status bar larger than normal. It would be very nice if there was a way to either disable the number, or have some other indicator (such as graying out the icon when no rules as active, as Stylish does).

Is this a duplicate of #9506?

Hi, that would be due to these changes that we just pulled from master to stable to make the icon show the number of applied rules:

Unfortunately graying out the icon won't work because we also pulled in a change to make the icon gray when HTTPS Everywhere is disabled.

This seems like it's bothersome enough to people that we should fix it. I will ping nullishzero about this via email since I can't add people to the cc.

Let me see what I can do; I have somewhat of an idea what may be causing this.

My solution right now will be to fix the size of the icon so that it respects the user's toolbar settings. Eventually, I want to add a feature that would allow the user to disable the ruleset counter.

Please pull and merge to master

I have tested the fix on a few setups, but I strongly recommend not pushing this to stable until a bit more testing is done.

nullishzero's fix got rid of the unnecessary icon padding on my setup (FF23, Ubuntu 12.04).

This problem is still here on It happens with other Firefox addons on Linux, like ModifyHeaders I fixed MofifyHeaders bug myself and tried to fix HTTPSEverywhere but without luck. Please share the code modifications and update to a new version.
