Way to remove/hide back and forward button in tool bar?

more options

Hi all,

Is there a way to hide both the back and forward buttons in the toolbar on macOS Firefox 66.0.2 (64-bit)? As it is, customizing toolbars does not allow their removal.

Chosen solution

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#back-button, #forward-button { display:none!important; }

You can't remove them as your asking the only. The only change is using a "userChrome.css" to make any modifications.

This code worked for me:

@-moz-document url(chrome://browser/content/browser.xul) {

 /* Your style rules for the user interface go here */
  1. back-button, #forward-button { display: none; }

}
