Hi Suze,
I believe that that is "their" version/idea of the new "Throbber."
May be hard coded?
Utter rubbish.

I have no idea if it's possible.
As I mentioned, it may be hard coded, but don't know if it can be removed.
&, there's no Throbber in the Customize palette, so...?
Maybe someone will know?

If you want to get rid of it, add this to your userChrome.css and remember to restart Firefox.
Code: Select all
/* Tabs - hide throbber (bouncing ping-pong balls) */
.tab-throbber { display: none !important; }
.tab-throbber[busy] ~ .tab-icon-image,
.tab-throbber[progress] ~ .tab-icon-image {
  display: -moz-box !important;
}

If you prefer the old spinning blue circle, use the following instead. I note that it only spins one way, whereas in previous versions it would indicate if data is being sent or received. This style is also bound to stop working once the assets are removed from Firefox; you should save the two images and replace the URLs with your copies.
Code: Select all
/* Pre-57 rotating throbbers - I found this shared by Jefferson Scher */
.tab-throbber[busy]::before {
  background-image: url("chrome://global/skin/icons/loading.png") !important;
  animation: unset !important;
}
.tab-throbber[busy]:not([progress])::before {
  filter: grayscale(100%) !important;
}
@media (min-resolution: 2dppx) {
  .tab-throbber[busy]::before {
    background-image: url("chrome://global/skin/icons/loading@2x.png") !important;
  }
}

You're welcome. I don't see why you omitted the rest of it though, since that makes sure the site icon is visible instead. Otherwise, you switch back and forth between a blank and the site icon as you navigate the same site.

I tried the second option, but it made no difference. I still have the throbber, bouncing ball. Can you show me exactly what I need to do, since it didn't work for me?
