Hi, I've just spent all day trying to follow all the different suggestions here regarding these issues. Adding all sorts of things to the userChrome CSS but 95% of the suggestions have no effect at all [I'm seriously non-technical, so I have no idea if I'm doing it correctly though...probably not] The only thing that I can change is the Tab Height...nothing else changes regardless of what numbers I put in there. The only way I've been able to make the Bookmarks folders usable at all is to enable Compact mode via about:config. But that actually makes it way too compact now...from one extreme to the other. At least it's usable now...so not the end of the world, but the right click menu still has way too much space between every entry [Compact mode made no difference to that at all]. I don't know how to make a screenshot of those menus :) so I took a couple of pics of the screen...can someone please show me what to add to the CSS file to make these ridiculously big spaces between the menu items way smaller...like they used to be before this Proton came in? I tried tons of things that people said to add to the CSS to fix this menu spacing thing but none of them changed anything. I'll include the CSS file that I have below. Thanks a lot

ps: for some reason the pics always come out sideways here

The main reason I even have a CSS file is to have the Tabs on the bottom, so probably a lot of that CSS is unnecessary, I don't know. The screenshot below is how I have the toolbars. By the way, on that right click menu for the Twitter pic/link I also want to somehow remove most of those entries if that's at all possible. The only ones I've ever used in that list are

Open Link In New Tab

Copy Link

Save Image As

Copy Image

Plus 3 or 4 addons that I use are at the bottom of the list. One of the guys here once made a CSS file that removed most of those things in that menu...would that also be possible? Thanks

It seems there is no way to delete a question so I'll reply that I managed to fix this by replacing that CSS with two other ones joined together [one for the menu spacing and one for tabs on bottom]. Menu spacing is back to like it always was, it's still got the Compact bookmarks whether it's set to Normal or Compact for some reason but at least it's usable like this I suppose.

menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {padding-block: 0px !important;}
