    Very interesting. This is the third time I have found such a message, but Mozilla itself knows nothing about it. Even no candidate is anywhere published.
    Most of all, the first such message was posted already more then week ago, but still Mozilla doesn't know that they must publish new installers.

    You understand that the reason why we don't see a candidate is because none has been built yet?

    I havent installed Firefox 69 yet but I tested it yesterday in a sandbox, I tested Firefox specifically to see what happened with userChrome.css (as I was aware that there were changes related to css in Firefox 69). What I found was that preference toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets was automatically set to true. So, I had to do nothing, as my userChrome.css worked automatically after doing the update.

    I also found out that (I read), that if we create new profiles, preference toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets, must be created by the user as is not in about:config by default.

    Mine is false after updating to Fx69, however, I never tweaked userChrome.css so I expected it to be false.

    For me, the big FF69 improvement is you can now block video in addition to sound via Auto Play setting.

    Interesting, maybe mine will also be false after doing the "real" update (not in a sandbox). I ll be doing it later today to see what happens.

    I ll come back later. Whats good here about this new change, is that this new hoop (to maintain Firefox as you, the user, like it) that Mozilla is making us go through, is very small. No harm. :)

    You could always do that in the about:config settings, now they just has those options exposed for the 'casuals'.

    I already did the update, all went well. But I found 2 things related to userChrome.css that did not work out as I expected.

    1. According to the Release notes, since I am currently using userChrome.css, preference toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets, was supposed to be created automatically (this happened) by the update, but also, according to the Release notes, I was gonna have to toggle it to true to make css work, this I didn't have to do. It was all done automatically and seamless by the update. This way, it worked better and was what I experienced last night when I tested Firefox 69 in a sandbox. 2. Just now, for testing I created a new profile to see if preference toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets was in about:config, and it was. It was set to false (as you had it). According to what I read last night, in new profiles, the preference was not gonna be in about:config by default. It would have to be created by the user. So, this also worked out differently than I expected........but, in the end, for the better, better usability.

    Delighted. In my book, any change that works out and takes place seamlessly is beautiful.

    Hi Bo, my understanding is that for those of us who already are using userChrome.css or userContent.css, the switch to true would be automatic. Those users who haven't been using either file would need to make the change.

    BTW, the niggly white flashes for those who like dark backgrounds seems to have been fixed.

    Thats how it was for me. But thats not exactly what the Release notes say. Perhaps I understood the Release notes wrongly. This is what the notes said, "Users who wish to customize Firefox by using these files can set the toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets preference to true to restore this ability." that doesn't sound to me like the preference was going to be set to true automatically. I understood the quote as saying that the preference would be created but we the users would do the toggling to true for css to work. Anyway, I thought it worked out great the way it worked, I am not complaining. Greetings, Vasa.
