I been reading various guide about how to use CSS to override the hyperlink color. But it is not working, Firefox are not grabbing the userChrome.css from the folder. I am not sure if there is other step that I have to do since I did everything to enable it through multiple guides.


  • toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets is enabled
  • chrome folder is created and located in my profile root folder
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css is in chrome folder
  • restarted Firefox multiple times even checking the task manager to ensure that Firefox is absolutely shut down.

Based on those above, it should be working. I thought it was the CSS code, however Stylus have no issue with the code. Yes, there are two empty rules in there because I got the impression that CSS strongly relies on inheritance. So I set this way to ensure that that nothing will be overridden by the website CSS. I created a clean fresh profile and set the same thing above and restarted Firefox. Unfortunately, it didn't work. So the addons are ruled out. my default profile is ruled out since the clean fresh profile having the same issue.

I don't know what is the possible issue of this? I don't know if my CSS is defined correctly since Stylus does not have a issue with it and applying CSS on all websites. Anyone have a clue?

My CSS content:

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

a: link {} a: visited {

   color: #ffa500 !important;

} a: hover {} a: active {

   color: #ffa500 !important;

}

Zum besseren Verständnis: wie kann man die hässlichen, breiten, schwarzen Umrahmungen, die neuerdings in Firefox an verschiedenen Fenstern erscheinen, wieder weg kriegen?

When I open a jpg image in a new tab and try to use the Zoom Controls on the custom toolbar: On one of my desktop PCs the Zoom Control will function to enlarge the image if I click the + button and restore it to its original size if I click 100%. On my other desktop PC the Zoom Control functions properly on text such as this, etc., but does not enlarge jpg images. Both PCs are running the most current version of Windows, both are running the most current version of Firefox Nightly. Displays and display cards are different. Not sure if this is a bug report, or I missed a settings adjustment. Michael

This sometimes happens for example while filling in a form on a web page. I intend to copy/paste text into an input box of the form but I accidentally paste it outside of the box. This causes Firefox to perform an undesired search based on my text.

I recently upgraded from 16.0.2 to 17.0. The fonts used by firefox in the toolbar and the names on the tabs have changed to a dirty, bold look. I do not like it. In 16.0.2 I am using the default theme. In 17.0 I am also using the default theme of 17.0. I am running Windows 7. Since my home and work machines have similar configurations, the work version (still 16.0.2) has the nicer looking fonts. If this antiquated system allowed one to attach screen shots, I could visually show the difference brought about by the upgrade to 17.0

How do I get back the application fonts that were used in 16.0.2?
