I really dislike what I find to be the much too white look of the AOM in 40. As usual, seems to be pointless change just for the sake of change. Is there any CSS to restore the grey background in just the AOM? It was easier to pick out individual items against the grey.

Maybe Aris can do something for this in CTR, as he's already addressed some of the other new issues in the AOM?

Yes, it's already "fixed" by Aris in Classic Theme Restorer, just download latest beta.

Are you ready for deprecation of XUL & XBL & XPCOM extensions? Not?! Try Firefox ESR

I'm not finding anything besides the latest 1.3.7, which is what I already have. Not seeing any latest beta in the versions page. Did you mean the three UI settings for the AOM? None of these takes care of the issue I'm describing.

This is the look I would like to recover.

Close to your screenshot. I'm sure you can change the colors.

Thanks, problem is it disables addon version number from CTR. But I'm trying a few others that are related, like this one

For unknown reasons, Mozilla changed the DOM hierarchy of about:addons in Firefox 40. Previously, it was easy to use CSS to reorder everything because things were at the same level of the hierarchy. Now things are nested, which makes it a PITA (or impossible) to change the order of some of the elements.
