I'm sticking with an older version of Firefox, because i have a list of searchengines that i use. But i don't know them only by icon.

so i want if i click the searchbar, a LIST of my searchengines and not only icons. ( see picture i have uploaded )

way back you could in the about:config change the setting : browser.search.showOneOffButtons that did not work anymore, but then i got on this forum the tip to use CLASSICTHEMERESTORER, and there was indeed the option to get the classic search back :)

but NOW, with the latest Firefox.. this also does not work anymore :) So i'm back here for help, HELP!  :p

Thanks in advance, best regards, dinny

Hi dinny, unfortunately my generator now requires you to combine two sets of style rules. I put together a sample here:

https://www.userchrome.org/samples/userChrome-search-bar-names-narrow.css

Does that one work better for you?


Classic Theme Restorer still exists, sort of: there is a userChrome.css version. For more info: https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx

Would you take a look at this thread and see if maybe the Chosen Solution there will work for you as well :

I watched both threats, and also did what was instructed in the video.

Made the CSS file, saved it in my Firefox Profile in newly made folder chrome, and renamed the CSS file to userChrome.css... but nothing happend.

It does !! :) works like a charm. Many thanks. now let's hope Firefox will just adopt this in future releases :p^

Once again, thank you very much.

I have one little question .. if that is not a problem ? :)

when i do a search, my text for searching stays in the searchbox, but the

"SEARCH WITH... " ( comes back and over the text for searching )

if it is possible, for me, the "SEARCH WITH.....in ( Dutch is ZOEKEN BIJ...) " may be hidden, not showing.

best regards, dinny

Yes, you can delete this section from the file so that text never shows up under any circumstances:

   /* Overlay search bar tooltip text in the search bar */
 #searchbar {
   position: relative !important;
 }
 .searchbar-textbox[tooltiptext]:not(:hover):not([focused])::after {
   content: attr(tooltiptext);
   font-style: italic;
   color: #888;
   background-color: inherit;
   display: inline-block;
   padding-left: 4px;
   position: absolute;
   bottom: 4px;
   right: 8px;
   z-index: 1000;
   white-space: pre;
   direction: rtl;
   max-width: calc(100% - 40px);
   overflow-x: hidden;
 }
 #searchbar .textbox-input::placeholder {
   opacity: 0 !important;
 }
