Instead of having my bookmarks under the toolbar, it's along the left side. I have many things in chrome.css, like one that gives me 4 rows of bookmarks, but on the side, it's only one. If I click on one of the ones I can see, it does go to the website, as I can see the correct url in the address bar. However, everything is blank. Even about:config is blank. Safe mode works, but of course doesn't give me my bookmarks or anything else. The extensions that Safe Mode says are disabled are: Amazon Assistant for Firefox, Dashlane, and New Tab Override. Do you need the things from chrome.css to help me troubleshoot? I can't keep using Safe Mode, don't care for Chrome, and refuse to use IE.

Suddenly my search bar lists only 7 (was 6) of about 20 search engines. The command "Change Search Settings" appeared on the same line as the 6th listed engine so that clicking on it summoned that search engine. Now "Add Mozilla Support" appears on that line and the other command appears on the same line as the 7th engine.

My gobbled together version on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1267773 works on sidebar and menu drop-bar but library/show-all-bookmarks has far too much space between the lines.

Hi,

I am not sure how to ask this question so maybe telling you the history of what I did will help.

In one of the previous Quantum versions I wanted a different look for tabs and general layout. At that time I found a web page that covered what I was looking for. As I recall, there was some 'text' that I cut and pasted into a folder. That produced the layout you see in the attached screen cap image.

Since the Quantum versions have been updated I would like to remove the layout change previously installed and have the current traditional Firefox layout.

I have searched but am unable to find the original information.

Hopefully someone will be able to help me.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Last year, timeout14 posted "How can I install a second bookmarks toolbar?". The chosen solution was:

"Hi, you will need to use userChrome.css for that. Info on how to use it etc., is here https://www.userchrome.org/what-is-userchrome-css.html"

This worked fine until I was stupid enough to update Firefox Quantum to 66.0.1 (64-bit) which, of course, screwed it up.

Does anyone have a fix or should I stop trusting Firefox updates (sic) and go back to the earlier version?

Re 66.0.2 Tabs are on bottom but project ~1/3 down from background, into usable screen, blocking tab titles.

Managed to get Tabs on Bottom in all previous updates (including FF65). Carried over ToB with FF66.0.2 update, but the whole line of tabs (including vertical separators) has shifted down about 1/3 of its height such that it bleeds into the immediate viewable screen. If the top of that viewable screen is black, for example, the tab titles are almost unreadable. Any advice? Appreciated.

Hi,

Q1: Currently the dialog/editor for when you want to save a bookmark spawns under the '...' in the address bar, which is on my screen pretty far to the right side. especially because i prefer to save bookmarks with the menutoolbar>bookmarks menu (file edit view history bookmarks tools help) which is on the right side. (see image) i tried a little in userChrome with #editBMPanel_folderTree {} (which i found floating on the web) but i cannot get it to work. If thats impossible, is it then possible to move the '...' to the right side?

Q2: When the dialog/editor pops up and i leave it untouched and not hovering over it, it will automatically bookmark the page after 5-10~ seconds. how can i disable that?

Thanks in advance, Aapjuh

p.s. i uploaded an image with it.. but can't find it in the post so i'll provide a imgur link https://i.imgur.com/ukJCOTn.png

Fx 63.0.3 in Linux. I added a tab close button (hovered) colored background. It's not necessarily same W x H as the inactive button transparent background - which is fine.

I'd like to move the (inactive) 'X' close to the tab right end (did move it - not necessarily easiest way). The bottom of red background in hovered state needs to be close to the tab bottom & even with the tab's right end / side, for a better, easier target to close. I did that - more or less. :)

The issue (that may have no solution) is the inactive button's transparent BG is 20x20px, I believe. So far, unless I make the hovered, colored background the same size as the inactive button's , it distorts the 'X' when the red background appears. So the button is semi-fixed? When hovered, it doesn't "translate" the X icon in the same HxW. Yes, people are starving in Africa & we're worried about pretty browsers.

I assume because the inactive close button has different dimensions and margins than the added background does, the only way I can get the "legs" of the 'X' near the tab border is enter different margins for it than for the hovered, colored background?

  • Question on the last part: *When you have a 20x20 button, originally positioned so the 'letter X' was ~ 5 - 7px from the border / end, what does Firefox "do" w/ the transparent part of the button, when you enter margins so the 'X' is very near the right tab border (right end of the moz-box or container)?
  • Does it in effect, 'remove' part of the transparent button, as different margins are entered, to move the button closer & closer to the container's end?

It appears the default close button's 'X' is 10px WxH. Since browser toolbox showed the button was 20x20px - I think, then it has a 5px margin? on all sides of the 'X' image.

The main goals are:

  • 1. Get more room for text on tabs. I also changed margins on the tab icons to move them near the tab left border & disabled tab text fadein.
  • 2. Have a clickable background to close tabs - that lines up at the tab bottom, right corner & not have to "fish around" for the close button. I have that.

So far, unless I make the hovered background the exact dimensions of the button, then use the exact margins on both, it will distort the X - depending on how different in size the inactive & hovered sizes are.

I couldn't find a CSS property / feature that would allow *the original* X close button to shift up or left (undistorted), when the hovered background appears.

Maybe the original close button could be hidden during hover and a new close button specified (adding a colored BG) with a new size? Say, 15x20 (or 30)? As long as the hovered BG is near the bottom, right corner.

  • I think whatever space is occupied by the width of the transparent button edge (plus padding, if any), dictates how far the tab's text can extend to the right? Once hovered, I don't care if more or less text shows, since I'll be closing the tab, not reading it.
  • If that's true, I could modify / create an overall smaller inactive close button - allowing more text on tabs. Or just "remove" the *inactive state* close button, & specify the same close button (plus red BG) for the hovered state.

I'm not sure how hard it would be.

It was kind of tedious, figuring out how much negative margin values to enter (for 2 different element sizes), so they both wound up (nearly) equidistant from the tab R end. Key word being "nearly". I didn't want the 'X' touching or almost - the tab divider line. But I want the hovered background touching it, to make an easier closing target.

In blown up screenshot(sss), it seemed if I measured the distance between the close button visible 'X' and the tab's R border (say 7px), if I entered 5px, the visible 'X' moved, but NOT so it was 2px from the R border. It seemed something else was affecting it.

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button { /* move inactive close button closer to tab R-end */

 margin-top: 5px !important;
 margin-right: -10px !important;
 margin-left: 0px !important;

}

FF 60.1.0 running on Ubuntu 14.04 I need to configure, or change, the buttons on the HTML page that appears when you click the Printer Icon. FF is working fine and is highly configured for a specific use and it works fine, no issues. But when the printer page comes up, with "Print", "Print Setup", and so on; there is a need to re-arrange the buttons that appear on the top of the page. Specifically the "Close" button needs to be moved to the far left instead of the far right - see the image which shows the layout of the top row of buttons. Try as I might looking through source code (I did fine printPreview.dtd and printPreview.css and have examined omni.ja) I cannot figure out what the CSS is on the page in the image because I cannot get FF to show me the HTML source for the page. Greatly appreciate any help.
