How do I shift the tab list slightly to the right using CSS?

Recently, I downloaded a userChrome file to make Firefox resemble an old version of Google Chrome. Everything looks pretty good so far, except for one issue: part of the first/leftmost tab always gets cut off, as you can see in the first attached image.

What I want to do is add a small amount of blank space or padding to the left of the first tab so that the full tab is visible, sort of like what I have in the second image (I took that image by dragging the tab manually, which I obviously can't do while browsing).

I also want to shift the rest of the tabs to the right by the same margin, so that I don't mess up the overlap pattern. How do I do this?

For reference, I'm running Firefox 84.0.2 (I just changed the browser icons and website favicons with resource hacker). If you want, you can download my userChrome file here: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=05793638977830057143.

This applies elsewhere, I imagine, but my current problem is "apple.news" links.

I get sent these links but don't use them. (No interest in being under surveillance by Apple.)

I tried to set them up in Multi-account containers, so that I can send them to a ghetto, but at least try to use them. I found no way to do this. (I also found the interface clunky and unintuitive.) (I did find how you set a domain there but redirection is long past by the time you can do that.)

(I'm happy setting the Windows registry, designing configuration systems for programs, and the like so making setting is not a terror for me, please don't answer as if I'm a dufus in that regard. Thank you.)

Where do I make a configuration setting to force these containers to do what I want?

Hi there,

I have been reading xkcd for years and somewhat recently using Firefox on macOS (Big Sur) I don't get the full mouse over text panel on the comics. I get some of the text panel, but most of it isn't rendered. Safari works fine, and I'm fairly confident that last time I tried Firefox on Windows it also worked fine.

I'm just wondering if there is a bug on the mac version of Firefox, or if there is a setting I have wrong perhaps? Or maybe it's an issue with the website itself?

Any insight would be appreciated :)

I should not have to ask this, but somehow this essential feature has been removed *again*. How in the world do we view the URLs of links in Windows 10 now? The status bar has been totally disappeared, and although there are a number of add-ons, so many of them are about other kinds of status, or only show the URL in limited circumstances, that I'm having trouble figuring out which ones offer the basic view-URL-on-hover. Does anyone have recommendations?

Even better, who can explain why it's a good idea to make it hard for users to see this absolutely vital information? If security is important then it's important to make it easy for users to see where links go before clicking on them. Full stop. And even if the web were somehow magically totally safe, people don't want to waste their time and bandwidth playing guessing games. We want to know what something is before we bother to open it up. Why is that so very hard to understand?????

When attempting to access https://signup.gmx.com I get the following error;

The requested URL was rejected. Please consult with your administrator. Your support ID is: < 3522328377538005653>

I contacted GMX and they have been unable to tell me why I can't access their signup page. I had my brother do a test from his home. He's on a different ISP. He is using a VPN, but this worked off VPN too. He is using the same ESR version of Firefox that I am, and he's on the same Windows 10 version I am. Also, he's using the same router I am with the same firmware. He can access the page without issue.

What I've tried;

I do not get this error for any other site. I've been trying to access this page on and off for about 6 months. It doesn't appear to be a temporary error.

Any ideas what might be causing this? thanks

Hi, since today I've been unable to connect to reCAPTCHA. At first the reCAPTCHA boxes didn't show up at all and Firefox prevented me from connecting with Google because of an error with the certificate. I was able to fix that by allowing Firefox to trust root authorities (solution #6 on this list: https://sectigostore.com/page/fix-the-warning-potential-security-risk-ahead-error-in-firefox/ )

While the reCAPTCHA boxes are showing up again, I still can't connect with it. When checking the box, it starts loading for a while and I get an error message saying that there's no contact with reCAPTCHA and that I should check my connection and try again. I included a screenshot.

I went to topics of people who had the same problem and tried everything. Disabling protection against tracking, disabling Adblock, starting Firefox in safe mode, refreshing Firefox, loading another Firefox profile, restarting Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, restarting my pc. I'm desperate.

I'm only having this problem in Firefox, not in any other browser.

This is driving me a bit mad...

A while ago the spellcheck in FF just stopped working. I literally only have a single add blocker installed that I've always used. I've not made any system changes lately beyond installing a few games.

- I have the "check spelling as you type" box checked in the browser options. - I have the English language pack installed from here (The British pack installed currently) - I've opened about:congif in the browser itself and made sure the value for layout.spellcheckDefault is set to 1.

It doesn't work on any site.

Chrome is working fine, but I prefer to use FF.

- I've tried reinstalling. - I've tried unchecking and rechcking the box.

Any ideas where what I should try next?

Any help really appreciated!

Several days ago I've noticed that YouTube navigation menu on the left started to disappear. See pic-1. It may apper after several tries to open it in other tabs, but all in all mostly not visible. The second and the biggest problem - I can't log out from YouTube. See Pic-2.

I fully deleted Firefox, created new clean profile without any add-on etc, and tried to log in to YouTube - it didn't help. So I think it's not needed to mention all other basic things like cookie deleting etc were done. Problem is always here.
