M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.

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

I've spent much time trying to craft a userChrome.css, and it never works right. Every time I get close, something else is badly broken. For example, I _finally_ got the address box turned off, so they can't type in addresses, but now the Back button is non-functional.

Hello all,

I run a bunch of web applets locally on my computer for personal use only (http://localhost/...), and until recently I could successfully launch FF using window.open(...) with the new window NOT showing the address bar (because it takes space and looks ugly within the applet, so I want to avoid it at all cost).

I believe this changed with FF 76 (I now run v. 76.0.1 64-bit on a Windows10 based computer), anyway at this point it seems impossible to NOT have the address bar show up in a FF window. :-/

To be clear : I have searched for a solution in this forum and elsewhere, found the solution to another new problem with FF ("megabar"), also seen the trick to hide the url in the address bar - but this is not what I'm looking for : I just want to *get rid of the address bar*, period.

Thanxx in advance for any help with this issue (surprised noone else seems to complain about this). :)

Since updating to Firefox 70, the tab bar is shown even if there is only one tab (it just shows the + button then). Previously, the bar was hidden if there was only one tab. This previous behavior may depend on some setting, but I don't remember if I changed any setting for that. Have *no* Add-ons installed that affect tab visibility.

How to restore the old behaviour that tab bar is hidden if there is only one tab?

Is this something I can change or customize, or is this a bug?

Since I upgraded to FF68esr form fields have a yellow background. I've looked in the group policy, about:config and can't find anything. I found a couple of css suggestions neither of which got rid of the yellow. I just want to have firefox work how it used to instead of all these constant changes that break or degrade the experience.

Is there a way to disable this annoying "feature"?

Also, since upgrading, sites that cached my userid and password no longer show the password and enable me to single click login. I have to select the user name field, press tab, then the password is added and then I can log in. Is there a way to revert that behavior too?

I posted many weeks ago about how slow v68 is to load themes. The CSS that I used in v60 was speedy enough, but in v68 it's really slow, showing a bright blue background for a second or two before loading the theme. Is there a way to fix that in v68. I think someone said themes are going to be phased out too... is that true? Firefox looks really unattractive without something improve the UI.

Hi,

I prefer Firefox to show bookmarks toolbar in fullscreen mode. In the previous version of Firefox, this can be done by creating a CSS. Refer to the link below: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212156

However, after updating to Firefox 75.0, the CSS method doesn't work anymore. Google searches also returned no result considering the update is recent. That's why I'm writing it here.

Refer to the attachment below as bookmarks toolbar is hidden when hovering to toolbar.

Thank You.

Hi, I'm trying to get as much as possible of firefox to use dark theme to save my eyes at night.

I use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/darkreader/ to customize the sites automatically and it does an excellent job, except that firefox pages can't be customized with it and by that I mean:

about:blank about:newtab about:config about:preferences

for the blank and newtab pages I found three solutions:

1- create a [userContent.css](http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserContent.css) file with the following

@-moz-document url-prefix(about:blank) {*{background-color:#000000;}}

@-moz-document url-prefix(about:newtab) {*{background-color:#000000;}}

2- go to about:config and change

browser.display.background_color to #000000

browser.display.foreground_color to #ffffff

3- Go to "Preferences" and search for "colors" click on the colors button and set the background and text colors to the same colors as in 2.

now I tried all of the solutions above and all of them have side effects, the most prominent and annoying one is flashing white page for a couple of seconds when opening a new tab or white page while the website, other annoyances is that the settings don't apply to about:config and about:preferences even if I add them in userContent.css

-To test the flashing white you only need to open a new tab (while applying my settings above) and you will see it.

-To the white page before the site is loaded you need to open the link from another page(if you open a new tab and then paste the link you won't get the white page since the about:blank or about:newtab will have the dark background)

so to see my problem do the following:

1- go to https://github.com/biesiad/deelay#deelayme

2- right click on deelay.me link and click "open link in a new tab"

the link will be opened in a new tab that has the background in white or grayish color.

How can I solve these problems ? any tip would be appreciated.

Regards

Before anyone goes Pshaw... let me state that I am very old, and any excess strain on my body has severe repercussions. Who knew browsers could be so dangerous?

I have been using Firefox 56 for some time and decided to try out Firefox Quantum this morning. Everything worked pretty smoothly, and I have no complaints about the browser itself. However, for medical reasons, I need to have the tabs underneath the url bar. It seems that, by craning my neck to look up at the tabs, I managed to cause my neck to spasm so forcefully that I had to go to the hospital. The pain was excruciating.

It made me smile that the doctor gave me a prescription for Firefox 56 when I left the emergency room in a neck brace, shot full of muscle relaxants, and a warning to dump Firefox Quantum unless a solution can be found.

I did try to copy and paste chrome CSS code...but that doesn't seem to work on newer versions of Firefox. I hope someone has a solution...in the meantime, I am back to Firefox 56, which puts the tabs at, not above, eye level, without having to cram my browser down to the bottom of my iMac screen.

Go ahead and chortle, sigh.
