I'm trying to remove the dotted line around flash objects and links in Firefox 16.01, but I don't know how to find Firefox's CSS or what would work to do so. Setting the ring value to 0 in about:config didn't work.

please make sure that you change the _width preference, not _style.

I am seeing that happening only if I click on a link in some way, and the outline disappears if I click elsewhere on the page.

hello lalalei2001, you can try the following - enter about:config into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named browser.display.focus_ring_width. double-click and set that entry to 0, then the dots around a focused object should no longer appear.

I tried that, it made the dots turn into a line.

Try to add code like this to the userContent.css file.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.


object, embed, a:link, a:visited { outline:0 !important; }
