firefox sidebar/library spacing

Posted

Updated to the latest Firefox today and found that the same old problem from FF 25 is still around. There's extra added blank space between each bookmark in my sidebar and library. Anyone know how to fix this? I tried https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1183976 but it still leaves Library with extra space, sidebar seems to work but still bit too much space for my taste.

Also, the font-size is notably larger than elsewhere on menubar, so I'm dropping that coding.

The userChrome.css code used in that thread doesn't address the Library window at all. You need the 'selectors' code for the Library. I avoid using the Library window as much as possible, and don't ever bother with the "perceived faults" that I see there.

As far as spacing of the Sidebar, the font heights, margins and padding probably are off from what you want; vary those settings until you hit your "sweet-spot".

Perhaps this reddit grouping of postings has the fix that you desire, or at least gets you a bit closer to your desired results. https://www.reddit.com/r/FirefoxCSS/

I found that that page via https://www.reddit.com/r/FirefoxCSS/comments/9l1jbe/reduce_spacing_of_sidebar_bookmarks_old_code_no/

Which ones are the font heights, margins and padding specifically? I tried some changes but got nothing.

If you can't find a FirefoxCSS thread @reddit newer than Fx 63 about this issue, why don't you start a new thread there?

You're going in circles trying to fix code that was posted here at SUMO in the days of Firefox 57 that you reached from a reddit thread from the days of Firefox 63; work forwards rather than backwards when seeking code.

OK, took some doing and gobbling together but current one seems to work. Could someone more skilled check that I didn't create something that causes problems in the future?

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

 #placesView treechildren::-moz-tree-row{min-height: 17px !important;}

} .sidebar-placesTreechildren::-moz-tree-row{height: 1.6em !important;}

  1. bookmarks-view {
  padding: 0px !important;
  font-size: 12px !important;
  margin-top: 0px !important;
  margin-bottom: 0px !important;
}
#bookmarks-view treechildren::-moz-tree-row {
  min-height: 12px !important;
  margin-top: 0px !important;
  margin-bottom: 0px !important;
}
