Any Ffx users around, want to try this? I wanted the feature back but I wasn’t going to migrate to Chrome to get it.
Just in case anyone wants to try. I noticed that doing a ctrl-v (paste) in Firefox— even in 2018—- is still not working right. <-unless one of you guys have a fix.
In order to paste, say, plain text into a gmail message (like an url), I have to first
- make sure the focus is in the message body
- tap the TAB key once
It is possible that I’m the only one who was looking for the full installer for Firefox 57 64bit. I don’t mean the stub portion, but the whole thing. And if there is someone here who has the installer, they probably had a better way of finding the exact url. But here it is anyway.
This is what Mozilla has reduced us to, editing css files. Well ok it’s not that bad, but it’s the only way I know to put tabs under the address bar, in Firefox 57.
I’m here in the Firefox 57 Nightly build, trying to salvage something of the user interface I got used to in Ffx versions past.
E.g. The addon, “Stylish”, is dead here. “Stylus”, supposedly a substitute, is almost as useless.
If nothing else, I wanted to not have to see horizontal and vertical scrollbars. It is still…
It seems like every time I reinstall Firefox, or start over with a new profile, this problem comes up, where an Ffx window flashes white for a moment, between the closing of one tab in favor of another.
And every time, I forget what the fix is, so off to Google. The best solution seems to be the one where you put this…
There’s just nothing to do about this, except keep clear of the front page and go for some kind of an rss feed solution, which is not much of one. Meantime, wherever I can, I will block block block away, not just because of gawker, but because the internnet on the whole has become such a whorehouse for…
I found a couple of things to try if you want Firefox to *always* open or re-open in fullscreen (kiosk-style) mode <—- this is not the same as maximized, btw, just for anyone who wasn’t sure.
There’s this addon:
Another addon, along with code that goes in the…
Anybody who doesn't like/want/need the linkover tooltip in Firefox, might want to try the answer given to the question at this url:
They recommend you insert the code in userChrome.css, but it also seems to work fine as a Stylish userstyle. Your choice I guess.
Some things you might want to add back, that Murder-zillla suppressed or destroyed in Firefox 26+.
The ability to block/unblock images and js (went missing from the Options panel).
Also, maybe you want an image block toolbar button:
Since I started using Firefox 29 and up, I had a lot of trouble figuring out how to get the fonts in text boxes to stop being so puny in relation to fonts elsewhere in the UI. I found this style, which can go into Stylish or be placed in userchrome.css.
Like every other self-respecting Ffx user, I want things my way. This time, I wanted the tab favicon placeholder gone. Gone it is.
The userstyles at the link are for the minimize-restore-close buttons in the upper right of the browser window. They only seem to work in fullscreen mode (F11). I'm using ffx 21 (yeah, old) on Windows 7 but the styles might work elsewhere.
There isn't much to it, which I guess is the point. With this installed, there isn't the fanfare that normally hits you on a Google landing page.
I am an ingrate. But I could also use a kleaner kinja. I found this userstyle.
Anyone interested in tabs like these?
Anybody want 'dark n gray' for Gawker sites? There's this one:
