i want to make the green download arrow to remain grey

more options

i use sanitisminau and selectivecookiedelete to get rid of junk with 2 clicks(i remember, when i googled back then to see if i could actually merge these buttons together..at that time i was slightly disappointed, that i didnt find what i was looking for)

and now, while im happy with the new compact download arrow, in the long run its so annoying with its green color and the color doesnt go back to default after clearing download history via sanitisminau button, which means i need 2 additional clicks - 1 on the green arrow and 1 random click to close the download menu again

so in summary, here i have this browser, that is advertised as "open source" and yet people give me an impression, that some things are not changeable(another example of this was, when i asked people, how i could get rid of 1 newer part of firefox' history http://img7.uploadhouse.com/fileuploads/18080/18080177c08a6e2ddf65a917b76fb2746b2f38cc.jpg )

and now i have a 3rd person telling somebody the same thing here http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2682857 "you can't disable only green arrow."

on the english wikipedia page it says "Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source" also from wikipedia regarding "Free and open-source software": "That is, anyone is freely licensed to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software."

well if this thing is open source and it is perfectly legal to modify it to any extent supported by runtime coding language hardware w.e, then WHY CANT WE CHANGE THE COLOR OF A FREAKIN ARROW?!?!?!

i mean this browser gets updates every 1-2 months or w.e, so there should be enough people out there able to deal with a UI issue that molests some users every day..or not??

why are things not as easy in this case as i expect them to be??

You can find the CSS code that is used in this file (look for Main indicator icon):

  • chrome://browser/skin/downloads/downloads.css

You can override the rules with code in userChrome.css

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

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