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.

Version 65.0 moved the tabs back to the top of the window. Why isn't the placement optional?

I just updated my copy of Firefox to version 65.0. Immediately, I noticed that the tab bar has now been moved back to the top of the window, despite the hack I used to move it down. I know that I'm certainly not unique in disliking this location for the tabs toolbar. It makes a lot more sense for that toolbar to be below the bookmarks toolbar. That way, it separates the website content from the program's interface. Does anybody know of a way to move the tabs back down below the bookmarks toolbar? TIA

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.

При сохранении страницы в закладки с помощью CRTL+D отображается частичный скриншот сохраняемой страницы на развороте с настройками закладки. Экран моего нетбука невелик и если в настройках сохраняемой закладки развернуть список папок для выбора, то кнопки "Готово" и "Отмена" уходят за нижний край экрана. В этой ситуации очень неудобно сохранять закладки. И, на мой взгляд, этот урезаный скриншот сохраняемой страницы абсолютно бессмыленный и бесполезный. Подскажите, пожалуйста, можно ли как-то отключить его показ?

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.

I am running with ubuntu 18.04

I know, this is an ongoing thing. I also understand that there are, possibly, other programs that might interfere with Firefox always Asking to save logins and passwords for websites. I even understand why other password programs might consider Firefox to be a danger to the security of said passwords.

I, however, want Thunderbird to ask to save regardless of what another program or whatever thinks. Given the number of thoughts on this one I suspect that, eventually, you will figure out a way to simply write it in stone no matter what another program thinks.

I notice that there are command line options. As far as I can tell I can't tell Firefox, when starting, to make sure the Ask to save logins and passwords for websites is checked but could such a thing be possible? This would allow me to add a command line when I start firefox on startup. How about "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites = 1" or, say, add a line like that to the profile page? (that might even be better and then the profile file could become kindofa ini file for users.)

Thank you...............

Just a thought..............

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?

Firefox 65 UserChrome.css Not working

Hello, For quite a while I was using a custom UserChrome.css that removed minimize\maximize\close buttons from the tab bar. It looked like this:

/* Firefox userChrome.css */

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

/* Hide min, max, close in title bar */

  1. titlebar-min, #titlebar-max, #titlebar-close

{ display: none !important; }

/* Hide minimize, restore, close in full screen */

  1. minimize-button, #restore-button, #close-button

{ display: none !important; }

But after latest update (to Firefox 65 I believe) the app doesn't recognize the code in UserChrome.css.

I understand from Fx 65 change notes there were some changes to how Firefox parses css, isn't it?

What should I do to make UserChrome.css work?

I would appreciate any other method of removing minimize\maximize\close buttons from the tab bar if it isn't doable with UserChrome.css now.

EDIT: forum formatting doesn't show the code correctly. Here's pastebin: https://pastebin.com/1cBDgCJs

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.

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.

So basically, my extensions no longer show me anything in the dropdown. See the attached image.

- I am currently on firefox 60.6.1-esr (up to date on debian stable). - I tested this in a new profile (used the profile manager and create a blank test one. I installed noscript and the dropdown window appeared fine. - I reset my about:config by deleting my user.js and the dropdowns work again, however I lose my 1password login and other customizations I need.

What could be causing these not to render properly?
