Hello, I installed an add-on called "Restore Old Fast Theme of YouTube" from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/restore-fast-theme-of-youtube/

But after realizing it wasn't the right thing for me I tried to remove it but it seems to have permanently altered my YouTube. I tried restarting the browser but it is stuck on.

How is it able to do this? I have removed it so it should be back to normal but it is not.

Thank you for any help

Firefox makes it way too hard to find this 'ask a Q' page.

I began using Firefox Color & made a theme. Now I cannot change it. I went back to Firefox Color, selected the theme I made & deleted it but every time I open Firefox that theme comes back. I want to use—and make stick—the theme I have collected in Add-ons. How do I get rid of that annoying theme made on Firefox Color. (No, the new annoying theme does not show up in Settings >> Themes.)

Hello, I'm having a problem with the address bar that is driving me insane and I hope someone here can help me...

I am used to visiting facebook by typing in "fb" in the address bar and then clicking on the first link in google. I know, not the fastest way to reach facebook, but I just got used to it too much...

However, few days ago, firefox started asking me (in a ribbon popup under the toolbar) something along the lines of "Do you want to go to fb instead?" (not 100% sure if this was the exact question) and sometime later I stupidly clicked "Yes". Now whenever I type in address bar "fb" and hit enter, it automatically goes to http://fb/, which of course is a bad link and I only get to a page of my ISP??.

What is going on? how do I delete this visit link? I spent whole day searching on google and trying various accepted answers that suggest editing userChrome.css or toggling some settings in about:settings. None of these solutions work for me. Farthest I got was with editing the .css so that the visit link is hidden, but in reality the link is still there and when I hit enter it still takes me to the http://fb/ site.

Thank you and cheers!

Now that FF has updated to version 50, it has revealed a 1 pixel pipe thing in the URL bar. I'm looking for the CSS code to remove it. I have a list of 'display:none' stuff and looking to add that to the list if anyone knows what it's called.

Thanks in advance.

The search box to the right of the address bar used to be a regular text field. I could put text in there and initiate a search via engines which were configured separately (usually just once).

For some time the behavior has been changed to bring up a popup window with search options. This is really annoying. It prevents me from being about to dbl click on the search box text to clear it, it prevents me from seeing my old txt, and it serves no purpose that I can see other than to annoy the living crap out of me.

I thought I saw another user complaining of this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1034054), but the suggested fix appears to no longer work as I don't see the option in about:config.

This is on Quantum that I just installed. I can keep installing it but in a few minutes it changes to solid colors once again. I can't relate these changes to any of my actions. It only applies the colors to the tabs and and Bookmarks Tool bar and the Linen theme disappears.

Is there a addon that allows me to open new tab when I enter the url or search content or when I click the bookmark? I used to have "Tab mix Plus" in the old version of Firefox. It does not work in the new version. I know you can use "Alt+Enter" or use the middle click to open url/bookmark in the new tab. But I want it to be the default style. Thanks!
