Quick Preferences Menu

The Quick Preferences Menu is our easy access mechanism to some of the most oft-used preferences, but without the need to open the Preference Manager. You can add this button on the MultiZilla, Personal and the Navigation toolbar.

The most convenient way to access the Quick Preferences Menu is to have it in front of the location bar. This way you can hide all other toolbars, and still have access to all your preferences.
