Does anyone know where I should put this file? The example file says to use "profile-directory/chrome."

So far, I have tried ~/.phoenix/chrome and ~/.mozilla-firebird/chrome

Just to add a bit... it's typically <code>~/.phoenix/default/xxxxxxxx.slt/chrome</code> where "xxxxxxxx" is a random sequence of characters.

OK,

First, let me say thank you to the people who have posted exactly where to place this file. I have now modified the file so that it has one css definition for the menubar like this:
Code: Select all
menubar {
  font-size: 20pt !important
}


Even with the above, nothing is affected. Why is this so?

Did you restart the browser?

Other than that, make sure you used the correct lowercase/uppercase in path/filename.

Try this declaration instead, then adjust font family/size to fit
your needs, it may work.
Code: Select all
/* Make menubar easy to read */
  menubar {
  font-family: helvetica !important;
  font-size: 12pt !important;
}

I always keep the browser closed when making
userChrome.css edits. It should reside in your
"chrome" folder.

Why?
<a href="http://texturizer.net/firebird/extensions/#ChromEdit"ChomEdit</a> lets me fiddle with things <em>in</em> the browser window. But again I think you must restart for them to take effect.

Thats why--so I dont have to close and launch again.
Its just what works best for me since I only use 1 extension,
any mods I make are made directly to the various .css files
or with the Preferential Extension, in that case I still close
and launch the browser again to make sure Firebird picks up
the changes.

Am i correct in assuming that the style "menufont" is responsible for fonts for "File, Edit, View and etc?"

I've tried this a numerous times and it doesn't have any effect on the font size at all.

Ahh yes.. After trying multiple things, it finally works. Does anyone know where I see all the list for the CSS rules for Mozlla?

Also, in Linux, where can I see the system (not the user) location for this file userChrome.css? I assume that it lies somewhere in /usr/lib/mozilla. I'd rather configure this file instead of the having each user make their own.

You may find some information about CSS and more at

I'm sorry I can't help you about linux.
