Well, this is the version I'm now running instead of that old 45.9 ESR. Unfortunately, it's SOOOOOO UGLY! I don't particularly care much for the new "Quantum" Firefox. I guess the changes were made for reasons, but still... :(

Oh... I've been tweaking for days. I just wish that I could get rounded corners on my tabs again. How did you do that? Also, the GUI fonts suck, but I'm getting use to them.

I've spent three hours trying about 15 different userchrome.css files to make rounded corners. None have worked. I must be doing something wrong. :(

 

I WANT ROUNDED CORNERS, DARN IT!

Well, finally...

 

I have rounded tabs. YAY!

This is how I did it using userChrome.css in my FF profile:

 

/* removes separators before and after hovered tab */
.tabbrowser-tab:hover::after,
.tabbrowser-tab[beforehovered="true"]::after
{
color: transparent !important;
}

/* removes separators before and after selected tab */
.tabbrowser-tab[selected="true"]::after,
.tabbrowser-tab[beforeselected="true"]::after
{
display: none !important;
}

/* rounded tab corners */
.tabbrowser-tab::after, .tabbrowser-tab::before {
   border-left: none !important;
}
.tab-background {
  border-radius: 10px 10px 0px 0px !important;
  border-image: none !important;
  border-left: 1px solid !important;
  border-right: 1px solid !important;
  border-top: 1px solid !important;
/* background-color: #8A8A8A !important; */

/* remove top tab line */
}
.tab-line {
  display: none !important;
}

 

What you see here was snagged from numerous different places online today; a bit from here a bit from there. It's been a LONG time since I fiddled with userChrome.css in Firefox or T-bird. I had forgotten 99% of the little CSS I had learned in the past.

Sorry, I should have posted the css file I grabbed. I was on a different computer and not near my box of note cards when I posted.

I don't know css at all. I just downloaded, followed directions to get what I wanted.

Here's what I have and I have it archived on my gdrive so I don't lose it

 

/* Tab bar below Navigation & Bookmarks Toolbars */
#nav-bar { /* main toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
  box-shadow: none !important;
}
#PersonalToolbar { /* bookmarks toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}
#TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
  padding-top: 0 !important;
}
/* Clean up spacing */
.titlebar-placeholder {
  display: none !important;
}
toolbarbutton.bookmark-item {
  padding-top: 2px !important;
  padding-bottom: 2px !important;
}

/* Vertical space for min/max/close buttons above the main toolbar */
/* On Mac, if not showing title bar, allow 20 pixels */
#main-window[tabsintitlebar="true"]:not([inFullscreen="true"]) #toolbar-menubar:not([accesskey]) ~  #nav-bar {
  margin-top: 20px !important;
}
/* On Windows, if not showing title bar or menu bar, allow 20 pixels */
#main-window[tabsintitlebar="true"] #toolbar-menubar[autohide="true"][inactive="true"] ~ #nav-bar {
  margin-top: 20px !important; /* More px may be better on Win10 */
}
/* Sorry, Linux users, I don't know the best approach for you! */

/* Background for Light and Dark themes */
#main-window[lwthemetextcolor="bright"] #TabsToolbar,
#main-window[lwthemetextcolor="dark"] #TabsToolbar {
  background-color: var(--chrome-secondary-background-color) !important;
  background-image: none !important;
}
#main-window[lwthemetextcolor="dark"] .scrollbutton-up,
#main-window[lwthemetextcolor="dark"] .scrollbutton-down,
#main-window[lwthemetextcolor="dark"] .tabs-newtab-button,
#main-window[lwthemetextcolor="dark"] #new-tab-button,
#main-window[lwthemetextcolor="dark"] #alltabs-button {
  fill: var(--lwt-text-color) !important;
}
/* Left and right borders on Win 7 & 8, but not on 10 and later: */
@media (-moz-os-version: windows-win7), (-moz-os-version: windows-win8) {
  /* Vertical toolbar border */
  #main-window[sizemode=normal] #navigator-toolbox > toolbar#TabsToolbar {
    border-left: 1px solid hsla(240,5%,5%,0.3) !important;;
    border-right: 1px solid hsla(240,5%,5%,0.3) !important;;
    background-clip: padding-box;
  }
}

/* Override vertical shifts when moving a tab (9 Jan 2018) */
#TabsToolbar[movingtab] {
  padding-bottom: 0 !important;
}
#TabsToolbar[movingtab] > .tabbrowser-tabs {
  padding-bottom: 0 !important;
  margin-bottom: 0 !important;
}
#TabsToolbar[movingtab] + #nav-bar {
  margin-top: 0 !important;
}

.tabbrowser-tab::after, .tabbrowser-tab::before {
   border-left: none !important;
}
.tab-background {
  border-radius: 12px 12px 0px 0px !important;
  border-image: none !important;
  border-left: 1px solid !important;
  border-right: 1px solid !important;
  border-top: 1px solid !important;
  background-color: #BDBDBD !important;
}
.tab-line {
  display: none !important;
}

Spiffy. You might have some interesting tweaks there. I'll have to come back later and investigate more thoroughly. Thanks!

 

Merry-HO-HO! :)
