Well that sucks. I guess then I'd try the nuke option: Create a new, clean, FF profile, and then enable userChrome on that one, to see if it works. :( (backing up the old profile first, obviously, and then copying all the necessary things over to the new profile if that would work)

Oh, another st00pid idea: You wouldn't (like myself) happen to have some extension enabled that changes how FF looks? I used to have one that was called "Classic Tabs" or something like that, and I had to disable that because it would not play nice with the CSS code.

Here is the CSS that I finally came to use. Not my creation. It puts Tabs under the Address bar (although they're a bit larger than I'd like), adjusts the Menu bar (if you use it) and puts a Status bar at the bottom (although it is still visible in Full Screen mode):


/* Source file ... bottom.css made available under Mozilla Public License v. 2.0
See the above repository for updates as well as full license text. */

/* Modify to change window drag space width */
Use tabs_on_bottom_menubar_on_top_patch.css if you
have menubar permanently enabled and want it on top

Get window_control_placeholder_support.css
Window controls will be all wrong without it.
Additionally on Linux, you may need to get:

:root{ --uc-titlebar-padding: 0px; }
@media (-moz-os-version: windows-win7),(-moz-os-version: windows-win10){
:root[sizemode="maximized"][tabsintitlebar]{ --uc-titlebar-padding: 8px }
#toolbar-menubar[autohide="true"] > .titlebar-buttonbox-container,
#TabsToolbar > .titlebar-buttonbox-container{
position: fixed;
display: block;
top: var(--uc-titlebar-padding,0px);
height: 40px;
/* Mac specific. You should set that font-smoothing pref to true if you are on any platform where window controls are on left */
@supports -moz-bool-pref("layout.css.osx-font-smoothing.enabled"){
:root{ --uc-titlebar-padding: 0px !important }
.titlebar-buttonbox-container{ left:0; right: unset !important; }

:root[uidensity="compact"] #TabsToolbar > .titlebar-buttonbox-container{ height: 32px }

#toolbar-menubar[inactive] > .titlebar-buttonbox-container{ opacity: 0 }

#navigator-toolbox{ padding-top: var(--uc-titlebar-padding,0px) !important; }

.titlebar-buttonbox-container > .titlebar-buttonbox{ height: 100%; }

-moz-box-ordinal-group: 2;
-moz-appearance: none !important;
--tabs-navbar-shadow-size: 0px;

#TabsToolbar .titlebar-spacer{ display: none; }
/* Also hide the toolbox bottom border which isn't at bottom with this setup */
#navigator-toolbox::after{ display: none !important; }

@media (-moz-gtk-csd-close-button){ .titlebar-button{ -moz-box-orient: vertical } }

/* These exist only for compatibility with autohide-tabstoolbar.css */
toolbox#navigator-toolbox > toolbar#nav-bar.browser-toolbar{ animation: none; }
#navigator-toolbox:hover #TabsToolbar{ animation: slidein ease-out 48ms 1 }

/* Source file ... _patch.css made available under Mozilla Public License v. 2.0

/* Menubar on top patch - use with tabs_on_bottom.css */
/* Only really useful if menubar is ALWAYS visible */

:root:not([sizemode="fullscreen"]){ --uc-window-control-width: 0px !important }

/* height if native titlebar is enabled, assumes empty menubar */
--uc-menubar-height: 22px;
/* height when native titlebar is disabled, more roomy so can fit buttons etc. */
--uc-menubar-height: 22px;

#navigator-toolbox{ padding-top: calc(var(--uc-menubar-height) + var(--uc-titlebar-padding,0px)) !important }
:root[sizemode="fullscreen"] #navigator-toolbox{ padding-top: 0px !important; }

#toolbar-menubar .titlebar-button{ padding: 2px 17px !important; }

#toolbar-menubar .toolbarbutton-1 { --toolbarbutton-inner-padding: 3px }

/* Status-bar */
