# cp /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml.orig
# vi /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml

My suggestion is to edit the file like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<toolbar>
       <button id="showLibrary"/>
       <button id="addBook"/>
       <separator/>
       <button id="toc"/>
       <separator/>
       <button id="search"/>
       <button id="findPrevious"/>
       <button id="findNext"/>
       <separator/>
       <button id="preferences"/>
       <button id="rotate"/>
</toolbar>
