Firefox clean minimal skin, URL-bar fix, Searchbar fix, Norwegian Adblock, Speed-up

Firefox I like having a clean and consistent user interface, and over time I have been tweaking the Firefox userChrome.css file
to make things look perfect. Here is the latest version for Firefox 57 and higher (tested on Firefox 76 on Windows 10).

Latest update has a fix for the new "expanding" megabar / quantumbar URL-bar making it the compact "old style" again,
some tweaking of the searchbar and list to give them the same look, and cleaning up the new search icons at the bottom.

Installation instructions are further down on the page (after the box with the userChrome.css). Click here to jump there!

You can copy any part of the userChrome.css from the box above, or download the full userChrome.css by clicking here

Now this is how you add the userChrome.css file to your Firefox

  • First, if you don't allready use Firefox, follow this link to read info and download the latest version: Firefox download
  • Save userChrome.css to: "c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile-id>.default\chrome\"
  • From Firefox 69 on browser does not load userChrome.css by default. To enable loading you must do the following steps:
  1. Type "about:config" in the adress-bar
  2. Type "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" in the search box
  3. Set "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" to "True"
  • If the bookmarks are not showing in the sidebar (only "Unsorted Bookmarks" at the top) do as follows to expand the bookmarks:
  1. Click "Unsorted Bookmarks" (or whatever at the top line)
  2. Press "up arrow" (cursor up)
  3. Press "right arrow" (cursor right)

MultiSearch - Search with two search-engines simultanously

  • I have also made a search page that can search with multiple search engines. Click on this link to add MultiSearch.
  • To manually add MultiSearch in your browser settings copy this URL: "https://www.osterud.name/search.html?q=%s"
