I viewed this thread. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1164362

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I use CustomCSSforFx https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/issues/211, to which I added

/* Hide Mobile Bookmarks on menus */

  1. BMB_mobileBookmarks, #menu_mobileBookmarks {
 display: none !important;

}

But it doesn't work. Oddly, I have another, newer, profile, where the Mobile Bookmarks Folder isn't displayed, I don't know exactly what governs whether you see it or not, but the sync rules for my android (currently I have "nothing selected to synced from phone) my were established before the latest profile was created.

What I'd also like to get rid of, or "hide" are the "Other Bookmarks" folder, and the Bookmarks Toolbar" folder from the Bookmarks drop down menu. At worst, I'd like to be able to move them.

For a few months I have been using a userChrome.css customisation which displayed a URL at the beginning of each drop down autocomplete result for the URL Bar (normally a useless page title is displayed).

Here is the thread where I got the script from (thanks for your help, jscher2000): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1256581

Today I upgraded to Firefox 68 and it stopped working. Autocomplete results now display website title first, which is completely unreadable and pointless.

My userChrome.css definitely works, because if I add the following line at the end:

  • { color: red !important; }

then the text becomes red.

Unfortunately changing the order of autocomplete results so that the URL is first, has no effect.


Here is the entire content of my userChrome.css

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

.ac-url-text  { color: black !important; font-size: 12px !important; }
.ac-url-text[selected="true"]  { color: white !important; }
.ac-site-icon { display: none !important; }

/* Site Identity Button, EV: hide label */
#identity-box #identity-icon-labels {display:none !important}
#identity-box:hover #identity-icon-labels {display:-moz-box !important}

/* Squash tab bar to 1px tall and hide the tabs */
#TabsToolbar
{
  height: 1px !important;
  min-height: 1px !important;
  max-height: 1px !important;

Starting a few days ago, the thumbnail images in Google Photos albums 'vanished' - see the screenshot. The same thing happened in a Chrome browser, but I upgraded to the latest Chrome version, and that fixed the problem with that browser. Waterfox is still compromised in this regard. (Per the second screen shot, the 'album covers' images are OK, and if you click on a 'blank' thumbnail in an album, the corresponding image loads.) Any clues here, folks? Thank you . . .

New three-dot button that was added to the addressbar can be tabbed to and has slowed down my productivity.

My usual hotkey combo to search is <ctrl+t> <tab> <type search string> <enter>. I understand I can replace <tab> with <ctrl+e> to access the searchbar, or that I can <tab> twice - I'm just wondering if there's a way to go back to how it was a few days ago, for muscle-memory-sake?

Addressbar buttons are not customizable via the toolbar customize mode.

Browser: FF(dev)67.0b3 (64-bit) \n Attachment (which doesn't seem to want to upload, here): https://i.imgur.com/IPYJvs9.png \n Edit: No idea why newline is being removed between browser and attachment.

just installed the latest current Firefox update which has reverted my tabs to the top rather than below my bookmarks toolbar.

suffice to say this is rather annoying as changing the "browser.tabs.onTop" setting in the about:config which l originally did doesnt work any more l did find a userchrome.css file as well that said it would do it on this site but alas my tabs are still above the address bar and not below the bookmarks toolbar where l want them. any help to resolve this would be greatly appreciated due to the most recent update causing them to revert back to the top.

The latest FF 65 moved the tabs to the top, where they should not be. The old css workaround doesn't work, and all of the "new" fixes I've tried on my iMac IOS v. 10.13.6 either don't work or put the tabs bar ON TOP of the bookmarks bar. The tabs should be connected to the window they pertain to. Can someone please help me figure this out? I'm not a programmer and really don't want to be, but I really can't stand having the tabs at the top. Thanks for any help.

I just updated from a much older version of Firefox, and now fewer bookmark icons fit in my bookmarks toolbar. I'm hoping there's a way in about:config that I can reduce the buffer space between Bookmarks Toolbar icons.

(Yes, I already deleted the names on the bookmarks in my toolbar, I'm way past that for many years now.)

Would really appreciate some quick pointers on this, since it's dumped 18 icons into the expansion area....

Now, the screen is really wide enough, the height is not enough, One line URLBAR is not necessary

Use Userchrome to implement urlbar-container and TabsToolbar are on the same line

Upgrading FIREFOX to 65.0 is a bit of a problem because TabsToolbar is in titlebar and urlbar is in nav-bar.

Hopefully, urlbar-container can be moved to Tabs Toolbar like a button, which is simple, the previous version(<20.x) is possible.

I am trying very hard to use Firefox Quantum and move on from Firefox 56, and the one thing that most drives me crazy is the single row for tabs.

I've tried implementing workarounds with the userChrome.css, such as the one found here: https://github.com/Izheil/Quantum-Nox-Firefox-Dark-Full-Theme/tree/master/Multirow%20and%20other%20functions/Multirow%20tabs — but all my attempts have failed.

Does anyone know of another solution?

It's been horrible using a browser with only one row for tabs. It's very hard to find the tabs I want and to manage my open tabs, even using the menu which shows all of them. I often have no idea of how many tabs I have open, and I often end up with multiple tabs for the same page because I am not aware that it is already open or because it would take too long to find it.

With Firefox 56 and Tab Mix Plus, I usually had around 40 to 50 tabs open most of the time, and when I'm researching stuff this number easily gets to the hundreds for a while. With Firefox Quantum I have been unable to manage my tabs properly: I end up with much more tabs than I really need and it's hard to keep then organized.

I feel like I am struggling to save a marriage that can't be saved. I don't want to leave Firefox, but it's becoming unbearable. Feel free to suggest another browser as a solution to my problem.

I'm using Windows 10 on one computer and Windows 7 on another need a solution which will work for both.

When I upgraded to Firefox 72, I think it was, I had a problem with the tabs which I wanted to show below the address bar. Someone from this forum helped by guiding me to a userChrome change and a userContent.css file. That worked fine and the tabs were below the address bar.

The next time I upgraded Firefox to 75 I think it was, the address bar wasn't working the way it used to. I wanted to be able to have the whole address bar selected when I clicked on it so I could type over what was there and enter a new address. Again, someone on this forum very kindly helped me by showing me how to change the settings on browser.urlbar.OpenViewOnFocus and 3 others and the problem was solved.

Now I come to Firefox 77 and the tabs are showing above the address bar again AND the address bar is no longer working as I wanted it to.

The OpenViewOnFocus settings are the way they I was advised to change them, but the tabs are still above the address bar. Someone acknowledged that changing the OpenViewOnFocus will no longer correct the tab locations and suggested a userChrome.css change. But I've already got one program in the userChrome.css file that I used the fix the address bar program.

Can I have two different programs in the userChrome.css field?

If so, can anyone help with the userChrome.css program that would take care of both problems? and do I still need the userContent.css file?

Why does Firefox keep doing this?

There is this setting in Google Chrome.
