    First things first... stop Firefox from automatically updating. Simply unzip and drop this "distribution" folder into... C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox After manually updating Firefox this folder will be erased, so save a copy somewhere safe... for re-use. distribution.7z Now... for those who want the yesteryear Firefox or something in between, we have solutions... The first step would be a few about:config edits. toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets = True <--- Tells Firefox to read a file we will add. svg.context-properties.content.enabled = False <---- also needed browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled = False (bookmarks spacing) <---- (might want to play around with this) browser.proton.enabled = True <--- (since FF 91.0) browser.proton.places-tooltip.enabled = False [browser.proton.toolbar.version = 3 browser.aboutwelcome.design = False reader.parse-on-load.enabled = False (removes little blue page icon at right end of address bar) browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar = False <---- New tab search stays as a search (doesn't redirect to address bar) And these are just old about:config settings, from long before FF 89 Set all to False... browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus browser.urlbar.update1 browser.urlbar.update1.interventions browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps Close Firefox and put this Chrome folder (unzipped ofc), in... Chrome.7z <---- v4.0.0 C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxx.default-release Unedited Chrome folder: Releases . Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx . GitHub Then restart Firefox. Any other adjustments to the looks of Firefox were done via Settings or the Customize page.
