Where else have you seen "Marketplace"? I don't see it anywhere else in Beta 37, but I don't use that version very often. Probably going to be a piece-by-piece action for each appearance of "Marketplace".


You're gonna need someone who is a bit better with css that I am - I just can't get the right combination to hide that one specific "button" on the "launcher" bar in about:home .

This code in a userContent.css file will hide the entire "launcher" bar.

@-moz-document url(about:home){ #launcher { display: none !important; } }

And this is the coding user in about:home for that "Marketplace" button.

<button class="launchButton" id="apps">&abouthome.appsButton.label;</button>

I played with a number of coding combinations to hide just that one button, but just couldn't come up with the correct coding. Hopefully another contributor will come along later today who is sharper with css and will be able to help you further.

I would like to be able to hide that button myself, as I do with the "Get Add-ons" and the "Services" buttons in the AOM tab. I don't use them, and don't want to see them.

Thanks for your help the-edmeister, I played around with the CSS and could not do anything with it.

Can you please tell me where you saw Marketplace? The Firefox marketplace is a website, it's not built into Firefox in anyway (https://marketplace.firefox.com/). Did you maybe just see a promotion for it on the Firefox home page?

It is a block on the default Firefox start page You can see on the attachment that it makes the blocks larger than the search frame.

Tyler,

A "Marketplace" button was added to the about:home "launcher bar" (between History and Addons) in Firefox 37.0b1. Clicking that button takes the user here - https://marketplace.firefox.com/

I couldn't find "Marketplace" anywhere else - although I wouldn't be surprised if it showed up in the AOM in the near future, like maybe when beta goes with "in-content" for the AOM.

Ah I see (hasn't used Beta in a bit, too busy). Resnov, it's not actually in Firefox, it's just a link to the website that you can use to install Apps if you wanted to.

I do not need nor want to install any apps from anywhere. It is indeed in Firefox as it shows on it's default start page. I am working on removimg it with CSS but it is a hassle. Thanks for you reply.

I fooled with the CSS and could not remove it but I made it fit by adjust size and fonts. This I guess is solved for me but not in a way I would like. Mozilla should not be advertizing apps!
