I followed this post to add your own background to the Firefox homepage from a year ago to a T (reading all the posts to not miss anything) but I cant seem to make it work. I'm wondering if this either doesn't work anymore, or I passed over something very minor somehow. I made sure to edit the URL to match my own and my picture name, I made a userChrome.css, I'm not too sure what to do. I'll have to look over it again later.

Never mind, after getting some rest and carefully reading over the last part, I was able to get it to work. I am on Windows, so I had to open the image using open file and then copy and paste that URL onto the userContent instead of URL used with Linux.
