Moving 'hamburger' button to the left side. Clarification request for archived solution.

I've been finding it awkward reaching my hand round to select the menues button since they moved it to the right side and took away the ability to drag it via customise. I don't see why they had to fix it where it now is, when it was always fine on the left side: maybe this version was made by a left hander, who would be able to steer their mouse pointer in the 'forward' sense, and not have to strain their right hand against its wrist to get to the right corner, as I do.  :/

Anyhow: a solution was offerred, in the form of a style sheet script from Github, a few years ago:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184188#answer-1027165

"1) Download the zip file at https://github.com/Timvde/UserChrome-Tweaks and extract the userChrome.css file. 2) Open File Explorer, click 'View', check the box for 'Hidden Items'. 3) Drill down to c:/users/yourname/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/yourdefaultprofile 4) Create a new directory called 'chrome'. 5) Copy userChrome.css to the 'chrome' directory. 6) Restart Firefox."

This looks quite straightforward, but I'm new to GitHub, and I can't find anything about any actual files to download, and, if I try to copy the relevant script from the header link of the script, so that I can create a file in notepad, all that it copies is the title. I can't believe how much time I've wasted just looking for the zip file in step one of the fix!

Css and coding are all pretty alien to me, but I thought I might be able to at least manage the download part.  :/

Much obliged if anyone can explain how one is meant to 'git' things from the GitHub site; and,

If the situation has changed in the various FF versions since this advice was given: Does anyone have a way to move the 'hamburger' button, that will work with the current version?

Many thanks.

Your Last Update was a MESS! I never consented to automatic updates however, when my computer crashed because my power cord came out, I returned to my compute to an update screen. Who asked you? I would prefer to control my own updates. Needless to say, my regEdit had been 'messed with and all my shortcuts were removed. You may be well-meaning by I find your tactics despicable.

You used to be a thoughtful company but i guess the good ones can't maintain thine own integrity when folx like Google shows up and slams everybody against the wall with their snooping! I've been using your browser for a very long time because I thought you were more considerate than the likes of Microsoft and Chrome. Capitalism has 'eff'ed everybody up I guess; why should you be any different. PLEASE don't change my settings UNLESS I ASK YOU TO. I am not stupid and don't need you to make choices for me.

I've been using New Tab Override for quite some time to ensure that when I open a new tab, my Google home page opens with the tab.

Up until Firefox 80.0, the cursor would land on the Google search bar in the middle of the screen but now it lands in the URL field - most annoying.

Any ideas?

I was recently playing with "Themes" by adding and deleting some. Now, when Firefox starts, the theme "Light" is always used as the default. When I look at the themes page, my preferred one is shown as"enabled" and "Light" is shown as "disabled", but it is Light that is actually displayed in the banner display. If I disable, then enable my preferred one, it is then the one displayed. How can I stop "Light" from being the actual default? Firefox does not allow me to delete the Light theme.

over the last few days there is a small vertical cursor line that appears at the last mouse click location like it's waiting for me to type something there. like the browse button below. if i click outside the box a blinking vertical cursor line appears outside the box where i clicked. it is obviously not a place where input should be expected. this has only started over the last week or so and only with firefox it doesn't happen with chrome. I just opened a story on fox. the title of the story is not a link or a place for me to type or enter text but if i click anywhere in the title text a blinking cursor line appears.

Greetings, After not having had access to my home computer for quite a while between the 1st week of February and the end of May, I didnt have a chance to use Firefox ( necesary to have access to my account at Eastman Credit Union as Google Chrome is not supported) i had my eldest son (who lives in the US) to manage my account while I was ouf of commission and keep me up on all the operations conducted on my behalf. But to make a long story short, when i finally was able to use my desktop PC, I was surprised to discovver that theperson who did its maintenance, he "downgraded" my version of Windows7 Ultimate from the 64 bits version -which worked fine- to the 32 bits one. And ... surprise!!- i could not connect to my bank site. I therefore strongly suspect that version is not supported by Firefox. Thus my request for help from any person who would be willing to confirm ot infirm my doubts .. Needless to say, any and help and / or suggestions on how to resolve that issue would be most welcome and I thank you for it in advance Regards from France Pierre GOSSET pgosset5@gmil.com

Trying to download Watchlist on TD Ameritrade site. When I click 'Export', a blank page briefly opens then closes. Normally, I would get a pop-up asking me if I want to 'Open with' or 'Save File'.

Started with my upgrade to Firefox 79.0 (on Windows 7 pc) Other Internet sites work fine. If I use a different PC with the older Firefox it works. If I refresh V 79.0 and remove add-ons it still fails. If I rollback to V 78, it works ... briefly.
