Add a blank toolbar

Posted

First of all, as many of us know, as time goes on Firefox customization features get less and less. In older versions I used to be able to add blank toolbars to expand the toolbar space to better view themes. Well, you can't do that anymore (along with a lot of other things I used to be able to do). After hours of on and off searching the web, I cannot find any info on how to do this in the latest Quantum. Anyone have any ideas?

This was changed as of ff57+ to which to make any Browser change requires users to use "userChrome.css" edits to modify their Browser. This was done for Security reason and doesn't lend itself to just users change on the fly.

I see. It looks like I'm going to have to teach myself some web developer skills, ugh. I really never buy that 'for security reasons' excuse without explanations. It just seems to me that features are eliminated rather than improved to make the app 'lighter/faster' much like Microsoft claimed with Win10. Although I guess I shouldn't complain since Mozilla apps are open source. After googling 'how to use "userChrome.css" edits', it seems like it's easier to accomplish than it looks. I found a tutorial on YouTube. It looks easy if you know what you're doing, which I've never delved into. I don't suppose you can suggest any other resources whereas I can be walked through the process to achieve my goals. Oh, and thank you for your info/reply.
