Searchengines window, i want a list of searchengines, not tiles without text

Posted

I'm sticking with an older version of Firefox, because i have a list of searchengines that i use. But i don't know them only by icon.

so i want if i click the searchbar, a LIST of my searchengines and not only icons. ( see picture i have uploaded )

way back you could in the about:config change the setting : browser.search.showOneOffButtons that did not work anymore, but then i got on this forum the tip to use CLASSICTHEMERESTORER, and there was indeed the option to get the classic search back :)

but NOW, with the latest Firefox.. this also does not work anymore :) So i'm back here for help, HELP!  :p

Thanks in advance, best regards, dinny

Hi dinny, unfortunately my generator now requires you to combine two sets of style rules. I put together a sample here:

https://www.userchrome.org/samples/userChrome-search-bar-names-narrow.css

Does that one work better for you?


Classic Theme Restorer still exists, sort of: there is a userChrome.css version. For more info: https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx

I have one little question .. if that is not a problem ? :)

when i do a search, my text for searching stays in the searchbox, but the

"SEARCH WITH... " ( comes back and over the text for searching )

if it is possible, for me, the "SEARCH WITH.....in ( Dutch is ZOEKEN BIJ...) " may be hidden, not showing.

best regards, dinny

Yes, you can delete this section from the file so that text never shows up under any circumstances:

   /* Overlay search bar tooltip text in the search bar */
 #searchbar {
   position: relative !important;
 }
 .searchbar-textbox[tooltiptext]:not(:hover):not([focused])::after {
   content: attr(tooltiptext);
   font-style: italic;
   color: #888;
   background-color: inherit;
   display: inline-block;
   padding-left: 4px;
   position: absolute;
   bottom: 4px;
   right: 8px;
   z-index: 1000;
   white-space: pre;
   direction: rtl;
   max-width: calc(100% - 40px);
   overflow-x: hidden;
 }
 #searchbar .textbox-input::placeholder {
   opacity: 0 !important;
 }
