Mozilla Profile Customizations

(Edit, 2021: I've kept this old post updated over the years, as it's useful for my own reference.)

I prefer to use Mozilla Firefox for web browsing. One of the big reasons is how customizable it is. Less so than in days past, but still quite a bit. Here's some of the more hidden things that I tweak:

Firefox userChrome.css:

 * Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning
@namespace url("");

/* disable tooltips of tab names */
.tabbrowser-strip tooltip { display: none; }

/* get rid of "open in tabs" */
#personal-bookmarks .openintabs-menuseparator,
#personal-bookmarks .openintabs-menuitem
	display: none !important;

/* don't show options for new windows */
#file-menu menuitem[command='cmd_newNavigator'],
#file-menu #menu_closeWindow,
#contentAreaContextMenu #context-openlink,
#contentAreaContextMenu #frame menuitem[oncommand='gContextMenu.openFrame();']
	display: none !important;

/* make search bar fit cleanly */
#search-container { max-width: 360px !important; }

/* hide context "search for" */
#context-searchselect {display: none !important; }

Firefox userContent.css:

/* reset buttons do nothing but waste time and space */
input[type="reset"] { display: none !important; }

/* Don't bother with images trying to track our activities */
noscript img { display: none !important; }
