Anyone know how to turn the mouseover down arrow (show history) in the address bar to an always-on state? I have always disliked the fact that the developers have that down arrow disappear until one does a mouseover (hover) of that area of the address bar.

I used the Classic Theme Restorer legacy add-on to do this modification of the theme, but it is not compatible with Firefox (57+)

For your userChrome.css file.

Code: Select all
.urlbar-history-dropmarker {
  opacity: 1 !important;
}

Created a userChrome.css file, added the code above and it works well. Thank for the solutions and comments.

Aha ! Thanks for that.

Would my use of the Firefox Blue & Orange Theme by engin1984 (i.e. Not a FF Theme) be WHY this doesn't work?

Assuming my layout looks right per attached........... Thanks!

Hi costark, it looks like you are missing a second closing } on the immediately previous rule -- the number of { and } should always match:

Code: Select all
@media (min-resolution: 2dppx) {
  .tab-throbber[busy]::before {
    background-image: url("chrome://global/skin/icons/loading@2x.png") !important;
  }
}

Absolutely correct. Expression Brackets appear to alternate Left, then right, yet the @media (last section in rotating throbbers) ended Left, Left, Right, Right.
I never would have noticed that. So busy finishing up what dark matter & energy are & how to worm-hole travel I just don't have time to learn all of this.

Many Thanks. And for the Missing Bookmarks Toolbar fix in another Forum, too.

@ costark,

could you explain how your tab throbber problem in any way relates to the thread topic, which is about .urlbar-history-dropmarkers and forward/back buttons?

It doesn't. It was just beginner's luck that I grabbed a part of my - userchrome.css - folder to show what I had added after prior folder expressions for the -- hover-only "history arrow" fix -- and the missing - } - in the Throbber expression that jscher2000 pointed out happened to be a part of that older, unrelated entry. Added the - } - and the history arrow appeared without hovering.
