Yet another tweak to put the Findbar (Ctrl-F) search back to the top where it belongs.

 

Firefox 69 updates makes our previous Firefox tweaks slightly out of date as there is a new styling scheme. The steps required to move the find window back to the top left are as follows:

1. about:profiles

2. Open/create the chrome folder: C:\Users\YOURUSER\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\YOURFOLDER.default\chrome

3. Create/edit the userChrome.css file.

4. Add the userChrome.css style:


.browserContainer > findbar {
-moz-box-ordinal-group: 0;
position: fixed !important;
left: 0em;
border: 0px solid threedshadow !important;

/* Hide the "border" at the top by removing the box-shadow and background-image */
border-top: none !important;
box-shadow: none !important;
background-image: none !important;

/* Uncomment to add a transition from the top */
/*
transition: 400ms !important;
z-index: 0 !important;
*/
}

.findbar-closebutton {
margin-inline-start: 0.5em !important;
vertical-align: middle !important;
margin-bottom: 0.25em !important;
height: inherit !important;
}


5. Close and restart Firefox.
6. Press "Ctrl + F" to see your handiwork!

Sometimes the smallest modifications can double or triple the effeciency of a browser and that really does affect your bottom line. Use open-source libre/freedom technology first and hire a competent IT company to use it properly...like Grip Fast Information Services and Technology! Let's get started.
