What dose this do in Firefox 57

Testing styles
Pre-setup

Before being able to try styles, you need to enable two developer options (only do this once). To do that:

Press Ctrl + Shift + I on Win/Linux or Cmd + Opt + I on Mac
Click on the cog that appears in a right or left top corner, next to other buttons.
Scroll down to Advanced Settings and check the settings "Enable browser chrome and add-on debugging toolboxes" and "Enable remote debugging".
Close the developer tools panel and proceed with next tutorial

Testing a style

Press Ctrl + Alt + Shift + I on Win/Linux or Cmd + Opt + Shift + I on Mac
Click on the tab Style Editor, choose file userChrome.css on the sidebar
Choose the style you want to preview from this repository, copy the code
Scroll down on the development tools window textbox, paste the code
You should see the style being applied. If you like what you see, you can click Save, otherwise it will disappear after restarting the browser.

If you don't know what it does, don't fool around with it.

The userChrome.css file alters the user interface in various ways. Using the above directions, you get a live preview of your changes, while editing userChrome.css with an external editor requires a restart for the changes to be applied.

This a new web site that is dedicated to userChrome.css in Firefox 57 and later.
It was created by a long time support contributor in this fora.
https://www.userchrome.org/

Please have your tech person check it out.
