I suffer from vetigo caused by "unstable visual stimuli". The new "Cylon" moving dot on the tab is causing dizzyness. How can I turn it off, slow it or replace?

Posted

The new "Cylon" moving eye dot on the tab is triggering some mild vertigo, especially when there are more than one tab working at the same time.

How can I turn this off, slow it way down, or replace it?

This new "feature" is a game changer for me. If I am unable to fix it, I will have to move to Chrome.

You need to create a userChrome.css file to hide the tab throbber. This code below will actually revert the loading indicator to the old blue circle. Here's a link with a video on how to create userChrome.

After you've created the file, paste this code into that new file

/* Revert tab throbber - for Nightly 57 as of 9/20/2017 */ .tab-throbber[busy]::before { background-image: url("chrome://global/skin/icons/loading.png") !important; animation: unset !important; } .tab-throbber[busy]:not([progress])::before { /* Grays the blue during "Connecting" state */ filter: grayscale(100%); } @media (min-resolution: 2dppx) { .tab-throbber[busy]::before { background-image: url("chrome://global/skin/icons/loading@2x.png") !important; }

I am using 52 ESR. I can't compare it with Chrome, though, and it will only work until next June.

You may want to raise this on bugzilla, too:

That userChrome.css file works like a charm! Thank you so much for posting it.

Know how to use it to also go back to the curved tabs instead of the square ones, by any chance? I'd love to get rid of some of the extra icons, too. (See the attached image.)

Now if only the AdBlock Plus and Yarip add-ons worked like before ...

Is there a way to recode it to suppress both versions of the throbber? Or to reduce contrast in both versions?
