Regarding Firefox Quantum (i.e. versions 57.0 and later)

1) At one time (in Firefox 44 and earlier) you could restore the classic style search engine drop down list by setting -- about:config browser.search.showOneOffButtons = false

In Firefox 45 and later this variable disappeared but the drop down list could be restored using the legacy add-on, Classic Theme Restorer.

Does anyone know of a way to restore the classic style search engine drop down list in Firefox Quantum ?


2) In some legacy Firefox versions (Firefox 49 and others) there was once a very convenient Restart Button available in the "Customize Firefox" page. It was a red arrow in the form of a circle.

Does anyone know if there an add-on or other method to get that (or some other) restart button back in Firefox Quantum?


3) I find Firefox Quantum's grey bookmarks folders rather dreary. Does anyone know of a way to get the classic manila bookmark folder color back? I am not looking for a theme that changes everything, I just want to change the folder color back to the classic manila color.

For 1 & 2 such options are no longer available after ff57+ for custom changes requires the use of "userChrome.css" edits to make browser changes. And there are sites that has the "userChrome.css" edits you can load to change the look of the Browser.

3 - this requires the same "userChrome.css" edits to change the look of firefox.

Hi dkwalton, to get a little more specific:

(1) Search bar

The author of Classic Theme Restorer released a "hack" that restores the old bar in Firefox 57-63. The hack doesn't work in Firefox 64, but since your Firefox identified itself as the extended support release of Firefox 60, it could work for you. I'm not familiar with the details, but it is part of the "Classic" set of fixes here:

https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/

Alternately, you can work with the current bar and change its appearance using custom style rules. I have a video about that here:

https://vimeo.com/245639066

Let me know if you are interested in details on that approach.

(2) Restart Button

I don't remember a restart button on the Customize page. Maybe one of your extensions added that? I don't know whether extensions can do that any more in Firefox 57+. Since I don't see any add-ons for restarting in a search, I'm guessing not.

There is a restart button in the upper right corner of the following page. To load it the first time, you need to type or paste this internal address to the address bar and press Enter to load it. For the future, you could bookmark it for easier access.

about:profiles

It's the one labeled "Restart normally..."

(3) Gray bookmark folders

You can swap in the old icons using custom style rules in a userChrome.css file. Seems like a theme. ;-)

Let me get you started, but since you may be using code from Aris, you will need to glue some things together later. Make sure to have 10 minutes for this and take it step-by-step.

(A) Create a new chrome folder in your profile folder

The following article has the detailed steps for that (#1, #2, and I recommend #3)

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html

I also created videos for both Windows and Mac, on that same page.

(B) Set your OS to show file extensions

See Step #4 in the above article.

(C) Download the following file and move it into your new chrome folder

https://www.userchrome.org/samples/Fx56_bookmark_buttons.zip

You'll need to extract the files from the ZIP archive using your unzipping program or whatever Windows offers.

(D) Rename the userChrome-STARTER.css file to just userChrome.css

You can right-click the file, then Rename, then remove the -STARTER part from the file name so you end up with exactly userChrome.css and then click away to complete the edit.

However if you already have a userChrome.css file, instead of replacing it, copy the line from userChrome-STARTER.css to the top of your userChrome.css file to include the userChrome_Fx56_bookmark_icons.css file.

The next time you exit Firefox and start it up again, it should discover that file and apply the rules.
