New CookieSwap Toolbar Icon

Starting in version CookieSwap 13.4.331, the CookieSwap Toolbar Icon is located in the main Navigation Bar (a.ka. the Toolbar) so you no longer need the Add-on/Status Bar visible to use CookieSwap. 

Although not much has changed, there are few things you should know:
  1. The CookieSwap Toolbar Icon is visible by default after installation but can be easily removed or moved.  To do this, open the 'Toolbar Layout' window located under the Firefox Options menu (in Firefox 29 this feature was moved to the 'overflow' button in the tool bar and you pick 'Customize').  Here is what that looks like on Windows:

If you find the CookieSwap Toolbar Icon is too large (for example because you have a large profile name), then you can disable the profile name from displaying so you only see the CookieSwap icon.   This option is available under the CookieSwap options window (click the CookieSwap icon and select 'Options':
  4. After clearing the 'Display name in the Toolbar' option, the collapsed view looks like this:
  5. Unfortunately, with the collapsed view, the only way to know which CookieSwap profile is active is to either click on the CookieSwap icon or hover over it to see the active profile displayed in the tooltip.

If you no longer the need the Add-on/Status Bar at the bottom of the browser window, you can remove it by unchecking the 'Add-on Bar' option from the Firefox Options menu:
