Firefox 25 Question (problem?)


[link to this post]
 
Yesterday I upgraded to FF 25. I've recently realised that the Bookmarks list at the left of the screen seems to be more opened out than it used to be. By that I mean more space between each tree item.

I can't be certain that it's a consequence of V25 but clearly I'm wondering.

Anyone else noticed this?

Is it possible to change it?

mine has just upgraded - spacing doesn't seem to have changed when I view it against a screen shot from pre-upgrade (V24) - though I seemed to have gained a separator (line ) which deleted from right menu

Seems I'm not the only one to notice this, see link. I can't find a file called userChrome.css or anything called Stylish.

Hmm. Will need to dig deeper.

Edit: I've now reverted to Version 24 and the bookmarks sidebar spacing is noticeably tighter compared to version 25.

Sorted.

1. Read this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/959024

2. Copy the userChrome.css code into Notepad

3. Save it as userChrome.css in C:\Documents and Settings\XXXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\YYYY.default\chrome

where XXXX is your user name and YYYY is a random string that Firefox has given to the folder.

4. Stop and restart Firefox. Job done.

I've created the userChrome.css file, but it's not clear what to put in it. I've tried the code from this link but it made no difference.

Back to Version 24.

Put it here, as I suggested:

Save it as userChrome.css in C:\Documents and Settings\XXXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\YYYY.default\chrome

where XXXX is your user name and YYYY is a random string that Firefox has given to the folder.

Eventually cracked it.

There are 4 folders of the form YYYY.default\

3 of them had a sub-folder chrome, each of which had 2 files - userChrome-example.css and userContent-example.css. Creating a userChrome.css file in any of these 3 made no difference.

The fourth folder had no chrome sub-folder so I created one, created userChrome.css and added the code from the aforementioned link.

Then it worked.

Relevant or otherwise the fourth folder had a name of YYYY.default-aaaa (where aaaa represents 13 digits). The other 3 are, presumably, old profiles.

Oh, I see the problem. I guess I was lucky in that my directory structure was exactly by the book.
