So basically, my extensions no longer show me anything in the dropdown. See the attached image.

- I am currently on firefox 60.6.1-esr (up to date on debian stable). - I tested this in a new profile (used the profile manager and create a blank test one. I installed noscript and the dropdown window appeared fine. - I reset my about:config by deleting my user.js and the dropdowns work again, however I lose my 1password login and other customizations I need.

What could be causing these not to render properly?

Last year, timeout14 posted "How can I install a second bookmarks toolbar?". The chosen solution was:

"Hi, you will need to use userChrome.css for that. Info on how to use it etc., is here https://www.userchrome.org/what-is-userchrome-css.html"

This worked fine until I was stupid enough to update Firefox Quantum to 66.0.1 (64-bit) which, of course, screwed it up.

Does anyone have a fix or should I stop trusting Firefox updates (sic) and go back to the earlier version?

При сохранении страницы в закладки с помощью CRTL+D отображается частичный скриншот сохраняемой страницы на развороте с настройками закладки. Экран моего нетбука невелик и если в настройках сохраняемой закладки развернуть список папок для выбора, то кнопки "Готово" и "Отмена" уходят за нижний край экрана. В этой ситуации очень неудобно сохранять закладки. И, на мой взгляд, этот урезаный скриншот сохраняемой страницы абсолютно бессмыленный и бесполезный. Подскажите, пожалуйста, можно ли как-то отключить его показ?

Managed to get Tabs on Bottom in all previous updates (including FF65). Carried over ToB with FF66.0.2 update, but the whole line of tabs (including vertical separators) has shifted down about 1/3 of its height such that it bleeds into the immediate viewable screen. If the top of that viewable screen is black, for example, the tab titles are almost unreadable. Any advice? Appreciated.

Fx 63.0.3 in Linux. I added a tab close button (hovered) colored background. It's not necessarily same W x H as the inactive button transparent background - which is fine.

I'd like to move the (inactive) 'X' close to the tab right end (did move it - not necessarily easiest way). The bottom of red background in hovered state needs to be close to the tab bottom & even with the tab's right end / side, for a better, easier target to close. I did that - more or less. :)

The issue (that may have no solution) is the inactive button's transparent BG is 20x20px, I believe. So far, unless I make the hovered, colored background the same size as the inactive button's , it distorts the 'X' when the red background appears. So the button is semi-fixed? When hovered, it doesn't "translate" the X icon in the same HxW. Yes, people are starving in Africa & we're worried about pretty browsers.

I assume because the inactive close button has different dimensions and margins than the added background does, the only way I can get the "legs" of the 'X' near the tab border is enter different margins for it than for the hovered, colored background?

  • Question on the last part: *When you have a 20x20 button, originally positioned so the 'letter X' was ~ 5 - 7px from the border / end, what does Firefox "do" w/ the transparent part of the button, when you enter margins so the 'X' is very near the right tab border (right end of the moz-box or container)?
  • Does it in effect, 'remove' part of the transparent button, as different margins are entered, to move the button closer & closer to the container's end?

It appears the default close button's 'X' is 10px WxH. Since browser toolbox showed the button was 20x20px - I think, then it has a 5px margin? on all sides of the 'X' image.

The main goals are:

  • 1. Get more room for text on tabs. I also changed margins on the tab icons to move them near the tab left border & disabled tab text fadein.
  • 2. Have a clickable background to close tabs - that lines up at the tab bottom, right corner & not have to "fish around" for the close button. I have that.

So far, unless I make the hovered background the exact dimensions of the button, then use the exact margins on both, it will distort the X - depending on how different in size the inactive & hovered sizes are.

I couldn't find a CSS property / feature that would allow *the original* X close button to shift up or left (undistorted), when the hovered background appears.

Maybe the original close button could be hidden during hover and a new close button specified (adding a colored BG) with a new size? Say, 15x20 (or 30)? As long as the hovered BG is near the bottom, right corner.

  • I think whatever space is occupied by the width of the transparent button edge (plus padding, if any), dictates how far the tab's text can extend to the right? Once hovered, I don't care if more or less text shows, since I'll be closing the tab, not reading it.
  • If that's true, I could modify / create an overall smaller inactive close button - allowing more text on tabs. Or just "remove" the *inactive state* close button, & specify the same close button (plus red BG) for the hovered state.

I'm not sure how hard it would be.

It was kind of tedious, figuring out how much negative margin values to enter (for 2 different element sizes), so they both wound up (nearly) equidistant from the tab R end. Key word being "nearly". I didn't want the 'X' touching or almost - the tab divider line. But I want the hovered background touching it, to make an easier closing target.

In blown up screenshot(sss), it seemed if I measured the distance between the close button visible 'X' and the tab's R border (say 7px), if I entered 5px, the visible 'X' moved, but NOT so it was 2px from the R border. It seemed something else was affecting it.

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button { /* move inactive close button closer to tab R-end */

 margin-top: 5px !important;
 margin-right: -10px !important;
 margin-left: 0px !important;

}

FF 60.1.0 running on Ubuntu 14.04 I need to configure, or change, the buttons on the HTML page that appears when you click the Printer Icon. FF is working fine and is highly configured for a specific use and it works fine, no issues. But when the printer page comes up, with "Print", "Print Setup", and so on; there is a need to re-arrange the buttons that appear on the top of the page. Specifically the "Close" button needs to be moved to the far left instead of the far right - see the image which shows the layout of the top row of buttons. Try as I might looking through source code (I did fine printPreview.dtd and printPreview.css and have examined omni.ja) I cannot figure out what the CSS is on the page in the image because I cannot get FF to show me the HTML source for the page. Greatly appreciate any help.

How do you stop console commands from processing the same script after you are done? (it keeps going on in other tabs, days later, oops)

Used a command line argument from https://gist.github.com/CarletonStube.../0c838a6248772c6fea1339ddad503cce for Discord browser service to do something they don't provide.

https://gist.github.com/CarletonStuberg/0c838a6248772c6fea1339ddad503cce#gistcomment-2775415 ran this command, works fine. Issue: it is still running. Non-localised to actual window open. Possibly due to me re-entering it multiple times, it now seems to be stuck on.

Is there a script that I can run, or a console command to stop user inputted Console commands?

I just updated my copy of Firefox to version 65.0. Immediately, I noticed that the tab bar has now been moved back to the top of the window, despite the hack I used to move it down. I know that I'm certainly not unique in disliking this location for the tabs toolbar. It makes a lot more sense for that toolbar to be below the bookmarks toolbar. That way, it separates the website content from the program's interface. Does anybody know of a way to move the tabs back down below the bookmarks toolbar? TIA

From similar issues w/FF, I can only guess my problems w/losing settings is due to User.js file OR my use of Ublock Origin. Now I turn off Ublock once in a while as I've learned it may be causing FF to give me the "page not found/server" error page.

Seems to me by using Sync FF should be able to keep Tops sites where they should be and keep them pinned. Make no sense to me.

Anyhow, trying to read the How to fix preferences page but I gotta hang it up and get some sleep.


Thanks for any input. Hopefully the .js solution will work w/o hosing any Add-ons, etc.

I can't figure out how to move the "Exit" button from the menu onto the main toolbar. I tried right clicking the toolbar and chose "Customise", but there was no "Exit" button available to add. I looked for Firefox add-ons as well but the ones that I need are not compatible with the latest version of Firefox. Currently (from what I can tell) the fastest way to close Firefox is by clicking "Open menu" at the top right (the three horizontal bars) and then scrolling all the way down and clicking "Exit" (this is two clicks though). Also to clarify, pressing the "Ctrl+Shift+Q" buttons is not what I want. I want a one MOUSE click solution.

Is there a way to increase the spacing between toolbars?

I prefer my tabs just above the page and below the URL & "Bookmarks" toolbars so I found the CSS code to move them, but I had to make their text bigger to read, and now my bars are overlapping each other (see attached photo.)

Is there a way to increase the spacing between toolbars so they don't overlap? TIA.

After updating to Firefox 65 (Mac), there is now this enormous green drop-down that appears whenever I start typing in the address bar, and I cannot turn this thing off.

I've looked in Preferences > Privacy & Security > Address Bar, and all the selections there are unchecked. Search > Default Search Engine > Provide Search Selections is also unchecked.

Is there something in about:config I need to toggle? Or will I have to edit my userChrome.css to turn this off?

Thanks!

My bookmarks side bar is too wide and I would like to make it narrower. I have tried a few userchrome.css things but none work correctly. It looks like there is a frame or something behind the sidebar so when it narrows the frame is still there anyway. I am trying to get a little more size to my main view panel BUT I also like to leave the bookmarks side bar displayed at all times.

Thank you
