All:

I am familiar with the technique of using entries such as menu[label="file"] {display: none !important;} to hide an entire menu bar option in FireFox. But, let's say I want some of the FILE (or EDIT or VIEW, etc) menu options to be available, but not others.

Does anyone know what syntax I can use to accomplish this, or even if it's possible in userchrome.css?

Better yet, can anyone point me to a complete reference of just what I can do in userchrome.css?

Thanks in advance. BTW, this is for FF v1.0

Firefox Help - Tips & Tricks is a good place to start. Look in your userchrome.css.example for some stuff. Check out this thread. Also learn how to use Dom Inspector. You need to do a 'custom' install to add this feature. There's still more you can do than what I've posted.

...and this is what I use:


/* Browser fonts */
menubar, menubutton, menulist, menu, menuitem, textbox,
toolbar, .tab-text, tree, tooltip, sidebarheader, statusbar
{ font-size: 9pt !important;
font-family: Times New Roman !important; }

/* Hide dropdown arrows in Back & Forward buttons */
#back-button .toolbarbutton-menubutton-dropmarker,
#forward-button .toolbarbutton-menubutton-dropmarker
{ display: none !important; }

/* Hide Find Toolbar */
#FindToolbar { display: none !important; }

/* Don't show tab icons */
.tab-icon { display: none !important; }

/* Change all tab properties */

.tabbrowser-tabs > hbox > .tabs-right {
display: none !important; }

/* Hide close button on tab bar and side bar */
.tabs-closebutton {
display: none !important; }

/* Menu bar activity */
menubar > menu {
color: #000000 !important;
height: 18px !important;
max-height: 22px !important; }

/* Resize urlbar and searchbar height */
#urlbar, #searchbar .searchbar-textbox { height: 19px; }

/* Slightly rounded address and search bar corners */
#urlbar {
-moz-appearance: none !important;
-moz-border-radius: 3px !important;
padding-right: 1px !important; }

#searchbar .searchbar-textbox {
-moz-appearance: none !important;
-moz-border-radius: 3px !important; }

/* Make the Search box flex wider */
#search-container, #searchbar {
width: 236px !important; }

/* Adds a little space between icon and text in the Search bar */
.searchbar-dropmarker
{ margin-right: 2px !important;
margin-left: 1px !important; }

/* Urlbar and searchbar background and text color */
#urlbar, #searchbar .searchbar-textbox{

/* Resize Navigation Bar */
#navigator-toolbox toolbar { max-height: 26px !important; }

/* Hide styleselector/switcher */
#page-theme-button[themes] { display: none !important; }

/* Status Bar Height */
#status-bar { max-height: 21px !important; }

toolbarbutton.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon {
margin-top: -1px !important; }

/* Hide type ahead auto-complete drop down in Address bar */
#PopupAutoComplete, .autocomplete-tree { visibility: hidden !important;
display: none !important; }

/* Remove the drop down arrow in the Address bar */

Bozz? It looks like you have a set of redundant commands???

Code: Select all
/* Hide dropdown arrows in Back & Forward buttons */
#back-button .toolbarbutton-menubutton-dropmarker,
#forward-button .toolbarbutton-menubutton-dropmarker
{ display: none !important; }


and

Code: Select all
/* Remove Back/Forward drop-down arrows */
.toolbarbutton-menubutton-dropmarker { display: none !important; }


Why would you both hide and remove the same thing?

I did borrow a few things tho :)
I never noticed the yellow line thing in the address bar till I saw it fixed in yours!

lol...after two years, you can get a little crossed up. Probably one of the codes worked in earlier builds and the other for later builds. Since I'm hiding both of those icons now anyway, which one would be the correct code of 1.0 to remove/hide(same thing actually) the dropdown just for reference to help with new users? This is a test for you.

Thanks for pointing this out. :wink:

menuitem[label="Read Mail (0 new)"]


I found the following works better for me because it will hide the menu item no matter how many "new" there are.

Code: Select all
menuitem[command="Browser:ReadMail"] {display: none !important}

customize, then drag & drop. It is not a bar, just another element that can be moved to any of the toolbars.

Bozz?

Found how to hide ALL the Menuseparators

it was like
DUH when I found it lol

instead of this
Code: Select all
/* Hide All Separators...except View>Toolbars>Bookmarks Toolbar(unknown) */
menuitem + menuseparator { display: none; }
menu + menuseparator { display: none !important; }


change it to
Code: Select all
/* Removes majority of menu separators */
 menuseparator {
display: none;
}


lol :)

Has ANYONE figured out how to edit the Tabs Menu from TBE?

What they are called there?

To hide individual menus, you may wanna give a try at the <a href="http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/more-info/compactmenu">Compact Menu</a> extension. Works just as well, if not better.

I have been thinking about that, however, I have the menus themselves hidden that I want hidden. I only wish I could figure out how to get the Bookmark menu to act like the menu itself, and be able to be a button with a dropdown menu, and NOT the sidebar :>

What I would like to do is hide individual menu entries, not the entire menu set that I have left :>

I USE those lol

If I'm understanding what you're saying, you could try putting everything into a folder in the "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder".
