Transparent overlay; I want it off

more options

I saw a post that said "If you use the Classic Theme Restorer extension, one of its toolbar options will clear the translucent background from the toolbar. " I added the extension but do not see the option to remove the overlay.

Are you talking about the new Quantum theme?

or the original Legacy extension? (Not compatible with Quantum Firefox) ?

Have you contacted their support?

Hi Bob, are you talking this issue: when using an add-on theme or the Firefox Alpenglow theme, the background image or background color has a haze or fog over it on the main toolbar compared with the tabs bar. This is intended to make it earlier to pick out buttons against a busy background.

Extensions cannot remove that any more -- any advice for extensions that ran on Firefox 56 and earlier related to the toolbar area is nearly all obsolete in Firefox 57+.

You can, however, remove it using custom style rules in a userChrome.css file. That's a little bit involved, so before deluging you with further information, is that what you meant, or something else?
