In latest nigthly build (55.0a1 2017-04-22) sidebar shows on the right side of the window.
Can sidebar be set to show on the left side by changing settings in about:config?

What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

At least now it matches the icon in the toolbar button. Hahahahaha!

Can't find 'userChrome.css'. Not in 'AppData' nor 'Program' folders

It's in profile/chrome folder. (open about:support click 'Open Folder')

you need to create one if you don't see chrome folder and put userChrome.css in there.

Patch that moved the sidebar to right-side has been backed out on 'inbound' due to numerous issues it seems. Unclear if they will indeed add a pref, or just work on polish and implement the change post Fx 57.

thats why i dont think its worth telling people to Add blah blah to UserChrome.css anymore, let them get used to the idea that Mozilla will remove it eventually

The sidebar on the right end would probably also look weird if you have a bookmark that open in the sidebar.

I hope that they will reconsider to remove userChrome.css.
Maybe they can make it possible to compress the file with LZ4 to make it harder for malware to make changes or have some kind of master password or hash protection that can be used to protect the file.
This would be more work to make changes to the file, but at least we can still make changes to the user interface.

I had a 60.9 MB update for Linux Nightly today.

The sidebar is back on the left. I was just getting used to it being on the right.

Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5
