With version 70 the flashing flickering url box in the bottom left corner has returned, even though the CSS that worked to kill it in earlier releases remains in mu userchrome.css file. The CSS that worked before is

#statuspanel-label,.statuspanel-label
  {
    -moz-appearance: none !important;
    opacity: .01 !important;
  }

and someone more recently used

#statuspanel { display:none !important; }

but neither of these are working for me in Version 70. How do I get rid of this? Thanks.

Working now, thanks; the problem turned out to be caused by an error in my CSS earlier in the file that caused the rest of the file to be quietly ignored.

I believe that the Firefox UI was changed so that elements are now referenced an ID instead of a class name. What that essentially means is that changing to #statuspanel-label instead of .statuspanel-label should fix the problem.

Hope this helps.

Note that the OP is already using the 'id' versions with the '#' prefix that got mangled (I fixed the code).

In Firefox 69 and later you need to set this pref to true on the about:config page to enable userChrome.css and userContent.css in the chrome folder.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
