The solution posted here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1210576

worked wonderfully for providing an automatic load of a *local* homepage in a new tab until FF v62.0. I've checked my config file and js file, and both are correct and in the correct location, but now FF 62 broke this again. Two questions: *WHY*, and how do I force this back to the *obvious* choice of wanting a new tab to load your homepage (including *LOCAL*, no-net-needed, no junk, fast loading pages). No good explanation has ever been provided for why this simple functionality is forced away from users. This is *obvious* functionality, why is there not a good explanation of why FF developers won't provide their users with this capability.

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.

Every time I start Firefox with a new profile, despite trying in several ways to make this not happen, Firefox automatically makes a series of requests to URL's and will retry them repeatedly when those requests fail.

``` GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 GET https://search.services.mozilla.com/1/firefox/60.2.2/default/en-US/AU/default/default/nov17-1 POST https://shavar.services.mozilla.com/downloads?client=Firefox&appver=60.2&pver=2.2 ... (and so on) ```

I am trying to make this not happen. I'm ideally looking for a setup where Firefox will make no requests at all without me explicitly telling it to but just eliminating the two requests above would be a great start!

Here's what I've tried so far:

1. Uncheck "Provide search suggestions" in `about:preferences#search`

2. I've followed these instructions --- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

2. Here are a combination of select settings from my `user.js` preferences file that I put in to place before opening Firefox in my attempts to stop this. Some of these may or may not be relevant but I'm including them so you have some idea what I've tried: ``` user_pref("app.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.tabs.crashReporting.sendReport", false); user_pref("browser.crashReports.unsubmittedCheck.enabled", false) user_pref("browser.search.update", false); user_pref("browser.search.suggest.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.systemAddon.update.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.update.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.downloads.remote.enabled", false); user_pref('browser.search.geoSpecificDefaults.url', ); user_pref('media.gmp-manager.url', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.updateURL', ); user_pref('browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.gethashURL', ) user_pref('browser.search.cohort', ); user_pref("services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.urlbar.suggest.searches", false); ``` Any ideas?

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.

I am trying very hard to use Firefox Quantum and move on from Firefox 56, and the one thing that most drives me crazy is the single row for tabs.

I've tried implementing workarounds with the userChrome.css, such as the one found here: https://github.com/Izheil/Quantum-Nox-Firefox-Dark-Full-Theme/tree/master/Multirow%20and%20other%20functions/Multirow%20tabs — but all my attempts have failed.

Does anyone know of another solution?

It's been horrible using a browser with only one row for tabs. It's very hard to find the tabs I want and to manage my open tabs, even using the menu which shows all of them. I often have no idea of how many tabs I have open, and I often end up with multiple tabs for the same page because I am not aware that it is already open or because it would take too long to find it.

With Firefox 56 and Tab Mix Plus, I usually had around 40 to 50 tabs open most of the time, and when I'm researching stuff this number easily gets to the hundreds for a while. With Firefox Quantum I have been unable to manage my tabs properly: I end up with much more tabs than I really need and it's hard to keep then organized.

I feel like I am struggling to save a marriage that can't be saved. I don't want to leave Firefox, but it's becoming unbearable. Feel free to suggest another browser as a solution to my problem.

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.

I just updated from a much older version of Firefox, and now fewer bookmark icons fit in my bookmarks toolbar. I'm hoping there's a way in about:config that I can reduce the buffer space between Bookmarks Toolbar icons.

(Yes, I already deleted the names on the bookmarks in my toolbar, I'm way past that for many years now.)

Would really appreciate some quick pointers on this, since it's dumped 18 icons into the expansion area....
