In the address bar hiding light gray text

edited August 2009 in userstyles.org
When the address bar is empty - I'd like it to be blank. I want to remove the light gray text "Search Bookmarks and History", "Type an internet address", (etc?).

They show up at about:blank (etc?)

    And could someone on vista homepremium HP, ff3.5
    please tell me if their windows titlebar changed from black to blue suddenly!
    There's nothing on the internet about it, and it happened suddenly for me.
    I don't know what happened. Did it happen to anyone else?
    Or is everything messing up for just me?

    I just came back to this thread a minute ago - so I haven't tried anything yet - but your situation sounds like a very very weird bug.

    About a year ago I had an email exchange about the titlebar with the programmer who made this:

    MR Tech Toolkit :: Add-ons for Firefox
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/421

    I wanted to set the font "globally" - all over firefox. I succeeded, but I couldn't change anything about the font in the titlebar with stylish or with greasemonkey.

    He told me that - inside firefox - it was impossible to change anything about the titlebar's font. He said the only way I could change font stuff was use software that could make o/s level changes to the titlebar.

    I'm using vista home premium on a dell

    For 1, 2, 3, 4 - replace
    test
    -with-
    #urlbar [empty="true"]

    The result is the same each time - no change


    @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml); /* text when the address bar is empty ------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/ /* 1 */ test { color: transparent !important; } /* 2 */ test { color:none !important; } /* 3 */ test { color:white !important; } /* 4 */ test{ color:inherit !important; }

    WHOOPS

    Maybe you meant I should use namespace?

    But neither of these work

    @namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); /* text when the address bar is empty ------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/ #urlbar [empty="true"] { color:transparent !important; }


    @namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); /* text when the address bar is empty ------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/ #urlbar [empty="true"] * { color:transparent !important; }

    RE: titlebar
    The same change ocurrs with ie8 so that's why I'm thinking it's a windows vista home premium thing.
    It's only the background color that changed in the titlebar.

    Um... Could you copy and paste exactly what you're using so I can see @blahblah?

    See edit 4.

    I got ideas from this:

    Black ] URLbar Textbox
    http://userstyles.org/styles/14715

    I was able to change all text/url stuff...

    @namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); #urlbar .textbox-input-box { color:red !important; }

    But I couldn't get that to work with [empty="true"]

    problem solved

    Hide 'Search Bookmarks and History' in URL Bar
    http://userstyles.org/styles/19165

    Maybe I couldn't remove the text since I kept testing on an already open about:blank tab.

    Anyway - the text is gone.
  • That style is the same code I gave you in my first comment.
    Anyhow, I'm glad you have it all worked out! :)

    ekbworldwide,
    what's with the huge font? My ears hurt.

    Barbie,
    i use vista HP and my title didn't change, bg or font. Look under control pane/Personalization/Customize colors. It might have been reset somehow. I had it once - i use a Graphit light shade but this one time i noticed things were looking too blue. Went there and sure enough, it's was reset to default. I know i did not do this. My guess? Some update? Disk cleanup/defrag glitch? Uninstalling (or installing) a program? One thing for sure, you can not change it with Stylish or anything w/in a browser. It's a system thing.

    I would have preferred bold red - but I don't think it's possible to use red in this forum.

    Also - I'd like to hide the url for example.com - how can I do that?

    Ya, somehow it swiched from Windows Aero to Windows Home Basic color scheme, all on it's own. But, now I kinda like Home Basic and I'm gonna keep that color scheme, cause the other was too turquoise for me. Thanks for info!
    Next time I'm gonna buy a mac, I'm so tired of all the windows updates. Can you imagine if we had to do daily updates for our stove,fridge,telephone,cellphone etc.
    PS: Your so-called "buggin" ChoGGi for things, is for all of us. You're fightin' for all of us and we're all behind you as we all benefit from it. Thanks for that!

    ekbworldwide:
    You can get bold red on the forum with either of these firefox addons: (that makondo told me about actually)

    BBCode
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/128

    Text Formatting Toolbar
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4763
  • Glad to hear it's solved, at least it's not puzzling you anymore (except for the reason in the first place!).
    Thanks for being behind me ... Smileys but there's no fight.

    ChoGGi is too ... 'dear' for that (as somebody called him in a thread a while ago and i think it's quite becoming).
