Hello. Before the "proton" update to the Firefox UI, I had nicely saved space in my browser by putting the navbar up on the same level with the menu bar which is able to make the UI area of Firefox take up less vertical space on my screen. Proton broke this however, so I reverted.

What sort of userchrome.css code do I now need to use in order to put the menu bar and navbar on the same level, like the attached image?

Hello, Can someone please tell me how to stop my "search bar" text from also showing up in my "address bar"? I have search the internet and found all of the following ways that have been suggested that have not worked.

I read that I should set the following to "false" to solve my problem.

1) keyword.enabled 2) browser.fixup.alternate.enabled 3) browser.urlbar.suggest.surches

I have also gone into the settings menu and un-checked everything I could find about suggestions or words or anything else being added to the address bar. The only thing that should show up in and address bar is................you guessed it: AN ADDRESS!  :-) Thanks so much for your help.

I really appreciate the help. Mark

Firefox 96.0.2 home screen color

I saw this posted: (A) Right-click context menus, toolbar drop-down panels Starting in Firefox 89, these would flip to a dark background if the text on the inactive/background tabs was white or light. Firefox 96 has extended this adaptation to more parts of the browser. As far as I know, the only built-in way to avoid this is to change your toolbar theme to one with dark text on the inactive/background tabs. (The other way is the not-officially-supported userChrome.css file route.)

OK, I have been using a "not-officially-supported userChrome.css file" for quite sometime. Every 4th or 5th update (sic) screws it up. Apparently the latest (96.0.2) "looks" at my toolbars, makes an (erroneous) assumption and turns the main part of the home screen to black.

Not useful!

Suggestions to override Firefox's (less than helpful) assumption?

When Firefox 96.0.2 was installed on my Windows 10 computer my bookmarks tab went from white to black. The only way that I was able to get the white back was to change my Firefox Persona.

I would like to be able to use my previous Firefox Persona but until a fix is produced I have to use a Persona which is not my preferred choice.

This is both a request for help and information to those looking for a short term fix.

Hello all, Yesterday I tried to add another website to the rows of shortcuts. As usual I entered the Title, the website url and another url for the custom image location(optional)

However, this time after clicking the Preview button it does display an image, BUT after clicking the Save button it does not display the thumbnail image on the actual tile.

I tried it now with several different websites and NONE are displaying the images. I do have three rows of shortcut tiles with websites that DO display the thumbnail image but those are all from a few weeks back.

Why is this suddenly not working correctly any more??

I tried overriding the colour in chrome.css which works... when I define a random colour like #111111 but it doesn't work when I define the desired #e4e4ea colour. I assume Paint 3D & GIMP are giving the correct hexadecimal colour codes when using their Colour Picker's.

Recently (past several months) firefox has been taking every light mode theme I choose and changing it to dark mode. Do. Not. Want.

Once a theme has been "changed", I can never use it in light mode again. So I'm left mode-hopping in the hopes of being able to get a readable light mode for a couple days, until I have to change again.

I've checked other questioners but their answers didn't solve this.

For years I've had the same problem of basic resets on my custom settings everytime Firefox updates. I've read hundreds of posts, complaints and suggestions.

The best suggestions I've found are to use both userContent.css and changes to the about:config file. I have actually created a .txt file of unique about:config lines and settings so I can copy, paste, and set to my settings without having to look everything back up again. It still takes me 10 minutes, but at least it gets done my way.

A solution I think all of us would love to see are simple instructions on how to back up the current about:config settings and reinstate them AFTER an update so our choices stay as we want them. This shouldn't be too difficult. Export settings are available for all kinds of parts of Firefox, Thunderbird and add-ons. How about making that a priority in the next update?

Hello,

I love your browser. However, I have noticed that with each update the menu size has gotten smaller and smaller. Can you please tell me where I can make the adjustment size to my preference. I have looked for addons, and through countless old videos trying to accomplish this but it's simply not happening.

I have the current version for 64bit systems, which is 96.0.1. Please help.

The screenshot/snipping tool was a great addition to Firefox and I use it regularly. However I'm writing a tutorial on Google Maps at the moment and it would be nice if I had the option to select the same region of screen each time as I invoke some of Google Map's tools. So ideally I could lock the selection rectangle position and also its dimensions as I snapshot each page to show the steps involved in using Map's tool. Preset aspect ratios for the selection rectangle would be useful also. Maybe it's possible to do all this already?

I changed to another browser for about 2 weeks, and decided Firefox was the browser for me, but I can't seem to get a "clippingsbackup" to open on my computer.

It doesn't look like I have any clippings at this time, I don't remember getting rid of all past firefox information, when I changed browsers, but something is different now

Hello since the update to FF 96 I noticed that the container indicator for the current tab was a few pixel lower than the indicator for other tabs.

Since this was not happening in troubleshoot mode I tried disabling my addons one by one and found that the problem was caused by Firefox Color: any change from the default FF theme (including selecting one of the FF Colors preset themes) moves the container indicator downward.

I also tested this on a new browser profile, installing only Multi-account Containers and FF Color and it looks the same, so this is not caused by other customizations on my browser.

Is this a bug in FF Color? Or something I can solve changing a configuration?
