FF3 RC1 edit not working

edited May 2008 in userstyles.org
I took the plunge and upgraded to FF3 RC1 and so far most everything is going pretty well.

One edit in my style that works in FF2 won't work in FF3, however. I am trying to hide the scrollbar.
The code I used for FF2 is:

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);

scrollbar * {display:none !important}

Is there a different selector name for FF3?

Any advice would be appreciated.



  • Thanks Jason,

    After posting my question I ran into problems with some extensions I use in FF2 no longer working in FFX3, and prefer not to do without. I was also unable to find suitable replacements. One extension completely eliminated all my toolbar menu's and I was unable to continue.

    I have no doubt most of them will be updated to FF3 eventually and will re-visit it at that time.

    Luckily (I've learned by experience) I made a Norton Ghost backup of everything before I started the upgrade and
    was able to restore everything exactly as it was with FF2.

    Thanks for the reference. Maybe by the time I re-visit FF3 someone will have written a style to eliminate the scrollbars.

    This seem to work, but I don't know how to remove the scrollbar at the right of the screen on web pages.

    @namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);

    scrollbar, scrollbar *
    -moz-appearance: none !important; /* Unlock major properties (FF3): default behavior is use system skin, but here we want ours. */
    display: none !important; /* Just hide them. */

    And for a full profile backup, you don't need something as heavy as Norton Ghost. Just install FEBE extension and choose "backup full profile". See https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/2109

    If it shows you "not compatible", you can try the hard wy (i tested it for many extensions, no problem at all):

    - Search in page source to find the .xpi link, copy/paste link, download and save file somewhere.
    - Open xpi with a archive manager (supporting zip). Use "Open with" if double click don't do anything.
    - Edit install.rdf and search for this line:


    At the next line write:


    - Save and repack file inside archive.

    - Restart firefox and use file -> open to install the extension.

    - Enjoy.
