    you cant. all buttons are now available outside and you can move it right to the addressbar (but not into it)
    the bookmark star was anytime there, it never was elsewhere. dont mix it with the bookmark button. the star is to mark or unmark bookmarks. the bookmarks button can do more.

    if you dont want the star you need some userChrome.css content to disable visibility. there never was an option to disable it at all.

    What is it that you mean, exactly?
    The Bookmark star icon is in the address bar already. I would like to disable it, or move it away into the Customize panel, but that option is not available.

    Well, it was not in my Firefox address bar before version 89.
    If it was ever there, I may have moved it away into the Customize panel. In that case, it was moved back in the address bar in 89, and now there is no option to move it away or hide or disable it.

    I don't mix it up. I am talking about the Bookmark star icon in the address bar ("Bookmark this page (Ctrl+D)").

    Yeah, I'm afraid I would need userChrome.css. Too much a hassle to just hide the Bookmark star icon is in the address bar.

    I don't know why it was not in my Firefox address bar before version 89 and now it is.
    As I said, if I moved it away into the Customize panel, then it was moved back in the address bar in 89, with no option to move it away or hide it.

    I've been using this for a while. It's great for sites that block the downloading of an image. It's one of the reasons I use Firefox.

    Then you probably had a CSS (userChrome.css) which made it disappear but CSS is not compatible with proton. Or you had a theme installed - but most themes are not compatible with proton, camp-firefox received a lot of questions because themes caused glitches.

    for userChrome.css
    Code:
    #urlbar #star-button-box
    {
        display:none !important;
    }
    you need to alter these 2 switches in about config
    toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets > true
    toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.windowIcon > true

    you know where to put userChrome.css?

    Don't remember seeing it as a Right Click menu item until now. Always used FastStone Capture before.

    It's been there for quite some time. I can't find an article that tells when it was added but I saw a site that said it wasn't working properly for someone in Firefox 71 so it has been at least that long. It does not work on everything though, it depends on where you click. At least for me.

    I used and use the Firefox Light theme.
    And I never used userChrome.css, I think it's too much a hassle for what I need.
    Thanks for the userChrome.css info, though.

    Do you know of any useful CSS tweaks? I have been looking around the internet a bit but it is all over my head.

    for me i create my own, those are simple and not much intrusive. if my work fails i dont worry and keep it as is.

    nice tweaks you wioll finde here:
    GitHub - Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx: Custom CSS tweaks for Firefox 57+

    Aris converted his extension to a decent css collection, under development.
    But this is only the beginning, if you want deep changes you should read here:
    https://www.camp-firefox.de/forum/forum/16-individuelle-anpassungen/
    a bunch of real geeks. And the only forum as far i know which deal this way with css tweaks. nice and friendly, anything is possible.
    nevertheless the english speaking community:
    Mozillazine Forums

    for special tweaks you maybe should start a new thread here, or there.

    The most important change that can be accomplished with css is putting tabs back on the bottom. If you prefer tabs on the bottom, you should start using css.

    You can do the changes to Firefox by using Ari's file (the easiest way), your own personal css file, or use both files at the same time.

    Other than putting tabs on the bottom, I also disable animation in tabs (throbbers and burst), get rid of the hamburger icon, set only the tab in use to have the close x button, set the url bar to display no suggestions, make letter in the Menu bar, tabs and bookmarks heavier, easier for reading, set the bookmark panel to display no information, hide the stripe on the active tab, set folders in bookmarks to be yellow, eliminate the Megabar. That's about it. Using css might seem complicated at first, but it becomes easier as time goes on. We don't have to be coders. You can be sure, the changes we want, someone else wants them also, and is very likely that the code you need to accomplish a change you desire, is out there somewhere and you just have to search for it.

    The update to 89 was very complicated for keeping tabs on the bottom. There is a lot of code floating around but none worked right away for me. I could it gone the easy way, and just use Ari's file for tabs on the bottom but instead decided to play around with the code, and in the end I ended up with 2 sets of code that gives me exactly what I want. I took chunks of the old code I was using and put it together with other code from different people that I found, and after changing some parameters, I ended up with what I want. Nice adventure.

    I like the colors in Proton so I have not disabled Proton or any setting related to Proton. This is what my Firefox with tabs on the bottom looks like.

    Thanks for this Bo. I don't have an issue with the tabs where they are with Proton, but to each their own. Cheers!

    I use the css tweaks from Aris-t2 as well.

    Tabs on the bottom. Disabled Proton settings for now (won't be possible any more in the near future though...).

    You see I like Dark.

    As I wanted to get rid of that Bookmark star in the address bar, and there was no other option available, I used userChrome.css, for the first time.
    I works nicely. Thanks very much for suggesting userChrome.css.
    I used:
    Code:
    /* Hide star button (bookmark) */
    
    #star-button-box {
        display: none !important;
    }

    Correct. Before version 89 it could be removed by a simple right mouse click. Obviously you had done this (like me).

    Thanks for this info. Indeed it works fine. :thumb:

    how it could be (so simple)

    Code:
    /*Tabs squared, no margin, color not active*/
    
    #TabsToolbar #alltabs-button
    {
        display: none !important;
    }
    
    #TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab .tab-background
    {
        border-radius: unset !important;
        margin-block: unset !important;
    }
    
    .tabbrowser-tab:not([visuallyselected="true"])
    {
        background-color: #A3A3A3 !important;
        border-right: 1px solid #444 !important;
        border-bottom: 1px solid #444 !important;
        border-top: 2px solid transparent !important;
    }
    
    .tabbrowser-tab:not([visuallyselected="true"]):hover
    {
        border-top: 2px solid #757575 !important;
        background-color: #909090 !important;
    }
    
    .tabbrowser-tab[visuallyselected="true"]
    {
        border-top: 2px solid #0A84FF !important;
    }
    
    .tabbrowser-tab .tab-background[selected="true"] {
        background-color: #F9F9FA !important;
    }
    
    
    .tabbrowser-tab
    {
        padding-inline: unset !important;
    }
    
    /* dark theme */
    
    toolbar[brighttext]:-moz-lwtheme .tabbrowser-tab:not([visuallyselected="true"])
    {
        background-color: #686868 !important;
    }
    
    toolbar[brighttext]:-moz-lwtheme .tabbrowser-tab:not([visuallyselected="true"]):hover
    {
        background-color: #ff5400c0 !important;
    }
    
    /* close button */
    
    .tab-close-button[fadein]:hover
    {
        background: #ff5100c0 !important;
    }
    
    toolbar[brighttext]:-moz-lwtheme .tab-close-button[fadein]:hover
    {
        background: #007bffc0 !important;
    }
    
    
    current bright theme here to get tab colors similar to v88, with dark theme its different (dont use it)

    screen reader is important, yeah. what about ...?
    1624546 - Include vcruntime140_1.dll for VS2019 16.5 x64 from the redist directory in the package
    1691782 - Fix missing vcruntime140_1.dll by shipping/running redistributable installer

    after some investigation yesterday it is ofc a matter of mozilla, but not a matter why that vcr lib is "missing" and why some uninstalls destroy windows in its side-by-side.

    missing vcr lib is part of the vcr redist 2015-2019 (more 2019), but not part of 2017 (?).
    firefox owns build 14.15 and uses it flawlessly, until it find an installed build 14.29/14.28 which need the _1 lib.

    a matter of programming, programs can be coded to search first in their own directory, then in system (using path variable). wth why is firefox using another lib than its own?

    Firefox 89 - Another redesign, another rollercoaster

    Like the Monty Python sketch - how not to be seen. Here's a somewhat sad review of Firefox 89 with the new Proton UI refresh, including look and feel on three different desktops, numerous problems in the new design - low constrast, reduced visibility and navigation, and hidden options, some improvement in browser speed and responsiveness, how to disable Proton, historical perspective, other observations, and more. Enjoy, kind of.

    Cheers,
    Mrk
