I used a .css command to fix the width of my tabs in FF 71, which works fine, but now, the tabs don't close up together after closing tabs. I get odd spaces between them and even at the beginning of the tab bar. (see image).

I don't use plug-ins for the tab parameters/behaviors, they're all .css- based.

The things I want:

- tabs below the bookmark toolbar. - Bookmark toolbar below the below the address bar. - Fixed width tabs (100 px). - Less height being used by the bookmark tool bar. (~30px). - Tab height a little larger than the bookmark height (~40px).

Over the years, I've sort of piecemealed the .css code and it's probably a blazing mess right now for what I want to have. My old .css worked GREAT in FF 70, but it doesn't in FF71. I probably need to have it cleaned up by someone who had a lot more experience than I do.

Any help at least getting my tabs to slide together when one is closed would be great!

Below is the contents of my userChrome.css:


/* Bookmark Sorting Menu */
#menu_unsortedBookmarks { display: none !important; }
#BMB_unsortedBookmarks { display: none !important; }

/* Show Tab Close buttons only when hovered */

Running Firefox 71.0 on macOS Mojave and I have not been able to have my search bar either autocomplete, suggest, or state any previous URLs or search queries.

This feature worked earlier that day, all of my settings are exactly the same and I have double and tripled checked that it is not my preferences (as in my settings allow it, Firefox remembers my history to pull from, but still nothing). I cannot see any URL or search I have searched as I am completely used to as of even yesterday and this is very irritating issue to not have work. If I had a search engine side bar that works via the search engines suggestions/autocomplete, but I hate having too separate bars since it slows me down (and even doing so, the URL bar still doesn't autofill or suggest any URL).

Any ideas?

I am a new apple user. I have the Catalina OS. Most current version. I have talked to apple...they tell me to use safari. I like firefox. Now, my issue. When I am on a web pags (this occurs randomly) I am bounced from the web page I am on to a previous web site I was on. I do nothing nor click on anything to cause this. It just happens. When I am on facebook, this will happen and bounce me off facebook and put me on a web page i had been on during the same session. This was not happening until I just got the latest Catalina update a week ago. I do not know how to fix this issue. Are there settings needing to be changed in the apple IOS? If so what are they? Is there something I can change in my facebook account? Is there something I can change in my Firefox browser account? Or should I just sit tight, grin and bare it until firefox makes changes via an update and fixes this issue. I am beginning to think, I should have stuck with my windows 10 system instead of moving to apple. I am just frustrated that I can not fix this issue. Any ideas out there? Thanks, Jim
