Hello.

It seems I get a problem or two almost always with a new update lately. I have been using an userChrome.css to reduce the width of sidebar but the latest version 107.0 now ignores it and have a wide width even at the narrowest. Mine currently is set as, "#sidebar {min-width:30px !important; max-width:none !important;}" This no longer works. Your support much appreciated.

Regards,

Hello, so I am not very experienced and recently discovered how to customize Fire Fox using the userChrome.css file. I went through all of the steps that are required in order to do this. I set up a folder called chrome in the directory /Users/my name/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/x1oheo82.default-release To test if it works I wrote this into the userChrome.css file: @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

  1. TabsToolbar{ background-color: #FF0000 !important }

and set toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true After restarting Fire Fox I saw that nothing changed. I double checked if there was a hidden file extension or if I might be in the wrong directory. I tried different code to see if there was some error in the code but nothing changed. I watched countless tutorials on You Tube and tried to find answers on google but nothing that I did seemed to help. I don't know if it has something to do with the operating system I am running or if it is a limitation of my computer hardware (I am running Fire Fox on an m1 mac).

One quality of life thing I really miss after switching from Chrome is the option to "Goto ip" when you highlight and right click on a local ip address.

I do a lot or networking and am going to local ip addresses all the time (ie 192.168.1.1 or 10.0.20.15). When I highlight an address in the local ranges in Chrome it gives the "Goto" option, but Firefox always offers "Search Google for"

I really miss this option and unfortunately all my searching has not yield a solution since search engines cant quite make sense of my requests.

Hopefully someone here can nail something down.

Thanks!

So I have the tab bar hidden in 1.08. I have it going to self made userChrome.css file. This is the only thing in that file:

Issue is now I have no close button along with the other usual buttons with it. So what do I need to mod in that file to get them back?

Thanks

I have Firefox 103.0.2 and have enabled the use of style sheets in about:config. I have a CSS style sheet userChrome.css that is giving me color at the top heading and in the tabs, except for the active tab (is white)

I'll list the CSS and see if you can give me some guidance in what i need to do to put some roundness in the top corners of the tabs. the UserChrome.css file .titlebar-color{ color: AccentColorText; background-color: AccentColor; } .tab-background{ border-radius: 5px 5px !important; margin-bottom: 0px !important; } .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected=true]):not([multiselected=true]) .tab-background{ background-color: color-mix(in srgb, currentColor 5%, transparent); } menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem{ padding-block: 2px !important; min-height: 0px !important; }

root{

--arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 2px !important; }

The whole top is solid color (same as Windows color, which is ok by me. However, it would also be nice if there were a dividing line or separation between the menu on top and the "tabs" below. Any ideas would be great! Thanks!! Vern

When I search "translate" into the address bar the first option is www.translate.com instead of just searching it on google (which is what I normally do). This happened after I searched the term and a little pop-up asked if I meant to go to the website instead. I accidentally clicked yes and do not know how to change it back. I would like to be able to type "translate" and have the google results show up first. Any help is greatly appreciated.

With the upgrade to Firefox 106 on Mac, Private browsing windows open with a dark theme by default. How do I enable the light theme for Private browsing windows?

I use Private browsing at work for website testing, and the dark themed tabs / UI are much harder to read and use than with a light theme.

Use case - 1. Custom profile folder (named prof1) contains pref.js and chrome folder with custom css file. 2. prof1 is created in -> "/customData/profiles/prof1" 3. The folder "/customData" has full rwx permissions and is owned by $USER (not by root)

Output -> 1. When launching firefox mentioning the profile -> "$ firefox --profile /customData/profiles/prof1"

The browser does not load, but there is an error box saying Profile Missing Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.


Questions -> 1. Is it possible to load firefox profile from root directory ? 2. If custom profile folder is created in "/home", then it is launching and working perfectly. How is this possible when the permissions and owner is same as the one in "/customData"

I use layout.frame_rate 1 to block animation, and to replace painful partial scrolling with clean jumps. I can't use an intermediate frame rate, such as 3-30 fps, due to the seizure risks, or a high frame rate, such as 60 fps, due to migraines when hit by "smooth" animation, "ease in-out" animation, zooming animation, parallax animation, partial scrolling with one part of the window sliding alongside another, etc.

about:config involves some other frame-rate and frame_rate settings;

gfx.display.frame-rate-divisor starts at 1

layers.offmainthreadcomposition.frame-rate starts at -1

layout.expose_high_rate_mode_from_refreshdriver starts at true

layout.frame_rate starts at 0, which defaults to monitor settings; I've reset it to 1 (1 frame per second).

layout.throttled_frame_rate starts at 1

What are these and what do they do? I've tried looking them up, and see a bunch of posts about browser diagnostics, or *increasing* frame rates, or the like.

Windows has feature that displaying media control popup on its lock screen. Firefox has an option to turn this off via advanced setting, but turn "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled" to "false" doesn't stop showing it up.

Also, on certain website (in my case tweetdeck), control screen of previously viewed and closed video is keep showing up and can't erase it unless restarting browser.

I asked this question on Microsoft forum but suggested it's Firefox issue. Does anyone have same problem? How can I fix this?

The instructions for the Window Titler icon suggest to turn on the Title Bar (with the Firefox icon, usually shows title of active tab, but would presumably show the Window Title if one was assigned). I can't find how to turn it on in version 99.0.1. It's not where the instructions for Window Titler said to look (managing the Menu bar or the Bookmarks bar). Any suggestions?

Would love for this feature (named windows) to become a normal part of Firefox. I wouldn't mind having the Title Bar anyway; at the cost of a few pixels, I would have something to grab onto when moving windows around that wouldn't accidentally do something to a tab.

Is there a way to disable the new tab button's container context menu? The menu pops up when the new tab "+" icon is right clicked, as well as when left click is held down for one second on the "+" icon. I've disabled everything in about:config that contains the word "container" and that did not remove the context menu. I do not use containers and do not want that context menu popping up when I accidentally do one of the two things that trigger it. I've included a screenshot of what I want to disable and circled it in red.

Firefox version 106.0.1

Thanks!

Hello everyone, I wrote an add-on for my own personal use. I don't intend to publish it. So naturally, it isn't verified, but I trust it. I am able to install the add-on as a temporary add-on under about:debugging, and it works as intended. The manifest file contains "browser_specific_settings": {

       "gecko": {
           "id": "example@example.com"
       }

} I would now like to install the add-on permanently. So I packaged it as a zip file. The zip file contains the files directly without a parent folder. Under about:config I set xpinstall.signatures.required, xpinstall.whitelist.required and extensions.langpacks.signatures.required to false. Then I went to about:addons clicked on install add-on from file and selected the zip file. I got the error message: "This addon could not be installed because it has not been verified". I am using Firefox for archlinux, version 112.0.

What am I missing? How can I install this addon?

I apprechiate your answers.
