Hello,

I am trying to create a custom userChrome.css for Firefox 85 to fix the poor contrast of text on inactive tabs on KDE Plasma with the Breeze colour scheme.

I want the text of an inactive tab on the active window to be the colour white.

I want the text of an inactive tab on an inactive window to be the colour black.

I tried the following in userChrome.css:

.tabbrowser-tab:not([selected="true"]) .tab-text {

 color:white !important;

}

.tabbrowser-tab:not([selected="true"]) .tab-text2 {

 color:black !important;

}

The first block of CSS works and I get white correctly on an inactive tab on an active window. The second block of CSS does not work and I do not get black text on an inactive tab on an inactive window.

I used "tab-text2" because it was described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1017404

Has "tab-text2" been deprecated and replaced with something else in newer versions of Firefox? How do I specify the tab text colours for an inactive window?

Thanks.

In the example to which you refer, there is only one statement; you have split it into two. The writer also uses the same color (so I'm not sure why he needed to specify it twice). There have been a lot of changes with css since 2014. You will have to search for 'tab-text' and 'tab-text2'. You could ask on the Reddit FirefoxCSS channel about how to achieve what you want.
