Hi all,

I am a Linux user (Manjaro) and I've been using Firefox for ages now. I got hold of another computer recently, and I just installed Manjaro Gnome on it as well. I started Firefox, and suddenly I see a UI change, which I don't think is an update, but who knows. In this version of firefox the search bar (along with the new tab, refresh, pocket, etc buttons) are abobe the tab list (which spans the full width). You can see it here https://imgur.com/a/idqp5jb

Moreover, i tried changing themes via the Add-ons Manager and they can't be applied.

When using the Troubleshooting mode, Firefox is back to normal! But in normal mode it is not, so I am not really sure what the problem is. I would be thankful if you could tell me how to fix this.

Try to enter about:config in the URL bar and set toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets = false, then restart the browser.

I did this and 1) It doesn't change anything upon restart 2) In fact, I correctly change it to false but after the restart I checked and it is back to true

Your System Details list shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize prefs each time Firefox starts. The user.js file will only be present if you or other software has created this file and normally won't be present.

You can check its content with a text editor (right-click: "Open with"; do not double-click). The user.js file is read each time Firefox is started and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file, so preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session.

You can delete the user.js file if you didn't create this file yourself.

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).
