I have the firefox browser in dark mode, and all my bookmarks/folders on the toolbar are white. It would be easier if they stood out a little easier to identify them with color (such as say trip advisor is in green so I can pick it out easier). Usually there's an icon before the name for most links (but not if it's a folder), such as google maps has a rainbow G in a white circle. If I could add an icon before the name of the link that would be great, but it would be even better if the words on different links could be another color.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

You can possibly use code in userChrome.css.


It is not that difficult to create userChrome.css if you have never used it.

The first step is to open the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" page and find the button to access the profile folder.

You can find this button under the "Application Basics" section as "Profile Folder -> Open Folder". If you click this button then you open the profile folder in the Windows File Explorer. You need to create a folder with the name chrome in this folder (name is all lowercase). In the chrome folder you need to create a plain text file with the name userChrome.css (name is case sensitive). In this userChrome.css text file you paste the CSS code.

In Windows saving the file is usually the only time things get more complicated because Windows can silently add a .txt file extension and you end up with a file named userChrome.css.txt. To avoid this you need to make sure to select "All files" in the dialog to save the file in the text editor using "Save File as".

You need to close (Quit/Exit) and restart Firefox when you create or modify the userChrome.css file.

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.
