Is there a preference to control Firefox to leave the .css files in the chrome folder? Currently, it deletes it in Linux.

Why wouldn't they be left there, what is "it"? :-k

@Presumably you have toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets set to true.

This was the default in the 72.0.2.2 new installation done a few minutes before I posted this.

Aside from this - today's Firefox offer of 72.0.2.2 has issues beyond I ever imagined. To begin, notice the version number.

What Linux distribution are you using?

There is no 72.0.2.2 that I can find. Here https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ or here https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/a ... op-release
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630

I am using Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon.

If FF is not installed and one types "firefox" in the terminal, the message gives options onscreen: "sudo apt install firefox 72.0.2" or "sudo apt install firefox 72.0.2.1". Naturally, I installed 72.0.2.1. (After installation, the version number changed to 72.0.2.2).

Unfortunately, I didn't take a snapshot of the terminal message, and to uninstall it now to prove this point would be stupid.

It's the international version of en_US, in which EVERY available language pack is installed! All of them except the en-US. To satisfy my curiosity, I removed them one by one which was time consuming but was necessary if I wanted to find out what is the basic language version.

Interesting, eh? (disclosure, I am in Canada and "eh" is a Canadian thing),

@mightyglydd, My apologies. In the heat of the moment I forgot to thank you.

I have no idea what they did there or why you have a 72.0.2.2.

My release version is from Ubuntu.

Name Firefox
Version 72.0.2
Build ID 20200117190643
User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:72.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/72.0

Sorry the 72.0.2.2 version you have broke userChrome.css for you.

I also would have to toggle "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" if I used the file.

I think it has been that way for several versions now.

It was curiosity the made me choose the universal version. Sort of a learning process about how things are organized. But, my take on the Windows versus the Linux version developers that the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. Too many unnecessary differences which for us mean lots of lost time and lots of posts here.
