Firefox version for 57 and beyond

Couldn't find a thread about this, and if it is a dup, feel free to remove.

What is the current status for the add-on for current Firefox Nightly 57 and ones 57 moves on to beta, etc.? I assume it must exist as web extension already since it also works in Chrome and Opera. Are these portable to FF?

Thanks

  • No plans have been announced for an official update.

    Someone else went ahead a created a Firefox version of the Stylish for Chrome extension, under the name Stylus: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/styl-us/

    As far as we know, no WebExtensions-based extension can restyle the browser user interface, only web pages. To restyle the interface, a userChrome.css file will be required. http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css
  • An alternative to Stylish.
    This extension promises to make it easier to use the userCrome.css and userContent.css files, but unfortunately can not eliminate the need to restart the browser for the changes to take effect.

    Yes, it will still be possible to restyle the user interface through the userChrome.css file. I'm testing version 57 beta.
    I've been able to change several things except the scrollbar. I want to see if this works: https://forum.userstyles.org/discussion/comment/114856/#Comment_114856
    Do you know if it's possible to change the scrollbar in FF 57+?

    well if you like the chance to completely hide the scrollbars use

    #content browser
    {
    margin-right:-15px!important;
    overflow-y:scroll;
    overflow-x:hidden;
    margin-bottom:-15px!important;
    overflow-y:scroll;
    overflow-x:hidden;
    }
    btw to go quickly to the bottom/top of the page I use the addon
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/scroll-to-top/?src=ss
  • Thanks, but I don't want to hide the scrollbar. I just want to restyle it, but it seems like this is not possible in Firefox Quantum.

    This is second-hand information, so apologies if I'm not relating it correctly.

    Scroll bars are a problem because the styles have !important in the built-in style sheet. Stylish for Firefox offered the "agent sheet" option to gain equal precedence with built-in !important styles. Unfortunately, "user styles" in userChrome.css cannot override !important browser styles.

    The legacy command to load a style sheet as an agent sheet is described in the following article. This method cannot be used in WebExtensions and I don't think that is going to change. However, these commands will continue to exist internally so there's likely to be a way for the user to invoke them (for example, in the Browser Console). You'd have to be a pretty dedicated user to pursue this path...

  • Great clarification!
    Now I understand why I can't resize the scrollbar. Mozilla really destroyed my enthusiasm for Firefox.
    Thank you very much.
