Where to Find Style Recipes

Posted by jscher2000 on November 5, 2017; updated November 12, 2017

You can find style recipes, also known as user styles, on numerous sites. Two particularly rich sources are (1) community sites (discussion forums), and (2) code sharing sites. Here are a sampling of such sites.

Two notes of caution. First, because Firefox 57 made so many changes to the interface, many older user styles will need updating before they work as intended. Second, most custom styling disasters can be reversed by removing the userChrome.css file from the chrome folder so Firefox can't find it at the next startup. However, you should be very cautious about downloading any scripts, executable programs, or other kinds of files other than .txt or .css files.

Roll Your Own?

If you do not find what you're looking for, or if you are unable to convince anyone to create a style recipe for you, you can write your own. You will need to learn a little CSS, and it will be very helpful to discover the Browser Toolbox. Check out:
