I was playing a game, and had to shut down Firefox to prevent slowdown- I have an older laptop, sue me. when I started firefox back up it installed an update- no problem.

but when it finished installing, it wasn't firefox, but firefox quantum, a different program entirely that deleted all my display preferences! the tabs are in the wrong spot, the search engines are a grid of icons instead of a list of names like they're SUPPOSED TO BE, it's only showing miniatureized icons instead of icons and text, there's no status bar at the bottom, it DELETED THE TABS FROM MY PREVIOUS SESSION and several of my addons (including the Classic Themes Restorer that fixes the severe UGLINESS of every new version,) is no longer compatible!

how do I correct this mistake by going back to the old version and protecting my laptop from this horrid quantum garbage?

I tried the UserChrome.css solution but it did not work. I used that once before in a previous build of FF, and at that time, it did work. So something must've changed in one of the updates to break it.

Just updated to 62.0, ugh. Lost my custom icons and toolbar order. Have tried all the suggestions for moving tabs below bookmarks. Nothing seems to work, including various userchrome.css scripts mentioned in relevant support posts. Anyone have a script/procedure for moving tabs below bookmarks that specifically works for 62.0 (64bit)?

Spacing between bookbarks is broken with v.63 - userchrome.css does not work anymore - how to get it back?

Hey guys,

previously I could customize the interface of FF via userchrome.css. I used to have less space between the bookmarks on the tab to the left. An update way back (53 I think) changed it to what it is today, which is why I needed the userchrome.css edits. Those dont work since the new update of FF. Is this a known bug or don't the codelines do anything anymore?

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); /* Tighten up bookmark tree in Fx25 */ .sidebar-placesTree treechildren::-moz-tree-row, .placesTree treechildren::-moz-tree-row { height: 1.3em !important; border-width: 1px !important; }

This is what I used to keep the space between the bookmarks on the classic level. I attatched a ScreenShot on how it should NOT look like, but does look like since v63.

How do you get rid of all types of auto completion when typing in an address in the address bar?

The search bar setting is set to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", I don't want to use "Add search bar in toolbar", because I don't want to have the extra search field in the top part of the browser, and if I go to customize, and remove it, it just changes the setting back to "Use the address bar for search and navigation".

I've already disabled the default search engine: "Provide search suggestions", and Address Bar: "Browsing history", "Bookmarks", and "Open tabs" options.

I want to be able to type an address in the address bar, without having any kind of auto completion options, but right now when I try to type and address like google for example, it still shows two lines with visit and search options, and it says "search for google with:", then shows icons for a bunch of different search engines.

I used to use firefox but stopped using it a while ago when they made ridiculous changes to it, and I'd like to use it again, but I don't know how to disable the address bar auto completion settings completely. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks.

I loathe the status bar. I can't stand it flashing in the corner of my fullscreen videos. I don't know why on earth it exists and why there is not a simple menu option to disable it, as I am not very good with even simple code. I have tried as many of the userChrome.css code solutions as I can find and none of them have done anything. I just want it gone, I can't stand it.

how to make search/address awesome bar black

Hello boys and girls; I am using FF 64.0 on Win7. My theme is 'Black and Gold' and I have DuckDuckGo for my homepage. Everything is dark, minimalistic with gold lettering. However, the task bar at the bottom of the screen, the bookmarks bar, and the search/address/awesome/toolbar are all gray. The address bar is a lighter shade of gray with black lettering. I suspect that is a windows thing and I could probably learn to live with it, but would like to change it also. I would provide an image, but screenshot doesn't seem to want to include the the header or toolbars.

I have created a chrome file for a .css command, but I'm not sure if this is the right direction or what to put in it.

If it is possible, could someone please provide detailed instructions as to how to change these areas.

I want the remove the "X" button when i have a single tab open. not when i have multiple tabs open. i constantly close Firefox when i mean to open a 2nd tab.

It isnt a problem if i close a tab if i have other tabs open because i can just use "CTL+SHIFT+T" to reopen the tab, but if i close a single tab, all of firefox closes. there used to be add-ons which gave me the options, but not anymore.

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.

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.
