Pointless pretty stars

After I spent a while tweaking my userChrome.css firefox configuration file to give me more real-estate in my browser, Mozilla in their infinite wisdom have decided to add features to a button I never used (and so removed). Not only that, but they've doubled its size to accommodate a clickable area for the feature (the bookmarks star, for those who've read up on Firefox 3.0 beta 1).

Why would you not give the star its own object?

EDIT: A little digging with the DOM inspector and I've now added the below css to userChrome.css to take out the go button but leave the star:

#go-button{display: none !important;}
