Undock the Firefox Sidebar

Ez Sidebar in Action! Want to separate the Firefox sidebar window that comes up when you browse your bookmarks or history into it’s own separate window?  We all have plenty of desktop space right?  Why not spread things out a little?  If your desktop space is just itching for another window then you too might want to pick up the Ez Sidebar add-on.

Once installed, you can easily undock and unlock the sidebar in Firefox from the Firefox browser window.  You can then move it around the the position where it might be best for you.  The undocked sidebar can raise on top always, and collapse or expand itself automatically by mousing over it.

Here is a little more about the extension from the developer:

This provides the “Sidebar” toggle button to the toolbar. It shows/hides the Sidebar on click. And, you can switch the sidebar panels from the dropdown list of the button directly.  This allows to take web pages into sidebar panels directly like Mozilla Seamonkey. They will be listed in the “Sidebar” menu and the list of the “Sidebar” button, same as built-in panels, Bookmarks, History, or others. (Firefox can load bookmarks into the Sidebar, so this feature will be no use for some people.)

If you have been searching for a way to separate your sidebar from your browser, Ez Sidebar will do the trick.
