    Mozilla has blocked Stylish because it is in fact spyware. Google will likely do the same for Chrome once they realize.

    A non-spyware alternative is Stylus. You can import your Stylish styles into Stylus, instructions on their wiki.

  • Yea, their recent privacy policy update broke the rules and now Stylish is banned from Mozilla. Permanently marked as spyware because of it. They done fucked up big time.
  • The new developer (team?) fucked up stylish & userstyles.org long before this, by both poor skills and bad data-collecting attempts. It's fun that so many didn't know these until now.
    Just use stylus or xstyle instead.
  • Sad. I bet it wont be long before this site goes bye bye.

    Nobody will cry for you :)).
  • I would have certainly used Stylus IF IT ACTUALLY WORKED on my version of Firefox (51.0.1, 32 bit)

    If you were prudent enough to backup your extensions xpis and DISABLE AUTOMATIC UPDATES when you install (it's been my experience in the past 15 years or so that updates INVARIABLY take away user rights and freedoms, but that's another story), just install an older version. If not, you'll have to look it up, Mozilla in its usual heavy handed 'we know what's good for you' ways made sure you wouldn't be able to access even the older versions even using the wayback machine (archive.org).

    I was running 2.1.1 which is the last one developed by Jason Barnabe, as a precaution I downgraded to 2.0.7, it's from way before Justin Hindman got in the picture and it works fine for me.

    Remember when you install it DISABLE AUTOMATIC UPDATES otherwise it will definitely update itself to the spyware version.

    Thanks for the tip, I tried another userstyle extention and it didn't work any better, but xStyle does (at least it was able to import styles from stylish.sqlite)

    How are your Walkman and VCR holding up though? Why the random version when there's an ESR for 52? It's not gonna be supported for much longer either (months if not weeks), but it's a hell of a lot more secure.

    Last I checked, Stylus worked fine in the ESR, but if you're sticking with legacy versions of FF, you might as well use the legacy Stylish, seeing as how it's much more powerful and can manipulate the UI.
  • If someone with pre-Quantum Firefox needs Stylish 2.1.1, I posted a copy here: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/temp/Stylish211Fx/
  • Is this a troll?
    FF51 with Stylish 2.0.7? I guess under Windows ME. He should try a registry cleaner to make it work.

    The Userstyle extractor will help you convert those old Stylish styles to an importable JSON file.

    You don't need an addon for CSS overwrite in Firefox.

    But an extension is much more convenient when you are tweaking a user style because userContent.css is only read at startup and the Style Editor in the developer tools is a bit clumsy.

    Firefox 57 - 60 support edit form programmer console ('Tools > WebDeveloper > Browser Toolbox') without restart, but function gone in Firefox 61+.

    Browser Toolbox is great for tweaking userChrome.css but I never saw userContent.css in there.

    I can sometimes edit userContent.css in the page's Style Editor panel. I have rules on the HTML element, so if I call up the inspector, click the HTML element, then in the Rules panel on the right click userContent.css, it will then load the file into the Style Editor. Otherwise, it seems to be hidden.

    However, if I close the developer tools to see the whole page and open them again, userContent.css is hidden again. I guess I could pop the dev tools out into a separate window, but an extension is less fussy.
