I am trying to customize the items in the hamburger menu, it worked fine until Firefox Quantom has been released. You find attached the Display needed (worked in ver 54.2.1 esr), I need to get the same display in ver 60.6.1.

I tried to userchrome.css solution with no luck as the way the menu is managed is different from version 54.2.1 esr to ver 60.6.1 esr.

Hi Ahmed WAJA, there's no built-in configuration.

You can use custom style rules in a userChrome.css file to hide unwanted menu items.

To discover the structure of the menu, paste this URL to your address bar and press Enter to load it:

view-source:chrome://browser/content/browser.xul

Then use Find (Ctrl+f) to skip down to appMenu-popup

Here you can see the elements of the menu. Some are easier to remove than others (e.g., when there is a unique id for the entire row).

You want to modify the "list" style display to the older "grid" style display? I don't know if that is possible. If it's possible, a good site to get a style recipe for that would be:

I need to choose the items to display and hide the rest, no need to display all the menu items, is it possible in this version?
