Firefox 55 broke buttons? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, but I noticed that with the installation of FF 55+ the back and forward buttons are now small, black and hard to see. The reload and stop buttons are now clear glass and the only way you can tell if they're there is to use them by hovering the mouse pointer over them and then click. Is there a way to fix this? Or will we have to wait for the next major update?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.8.1). 

Come to support forum and tell me more about your OS, OS version, screen resolution etc.

Also test the latest CTR beta.

Great achievement against font-destruction of the web Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The greatest addon for ffx.
With restoring the "old font rendering" this addon did the greatest value against this fool, barbaric, intentional destroying of the web-typography with that chromium-like boldness.
Thanks for this great author.

upgrade to webapp please ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

please update it to a webapp addon ! so useful

CTR as a WebExtension is not possible.

It is not my decision to not support Firefox (57+), it is Mozillas decision to not support these kind of add-ons. Nothing I can do about.

The only reason I still use Firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is not only the best add-on in the entire Mozilla selection, it's the only reason I still use Firefox.

I'm writing this review in the hope that Mozilla cease their death spiral and either stop ripping everything useful out of the GUI, or at least continue to allow add-ons like this one to replace the GUI

If this add-on stops working and has no replacement, I will simply stop using Firefox.

After all, if I am forced to use a Chrome-style GUI, I might as well use Chrome directly.

Firefox is becoming less useful in my life Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First, a big thank you to Aris. For now you give the users what Mozilla cannot.
I will sorely miss this extension.

Like everyone here I feel that this extension fixes a serious flaw in the user interface, and many other extensions rely on it.

The only other option I found is the "Vertical Toolbar", but this will only give you the space for your extra icons.

This may be more preferable to Opera and Vivaldi users.

I foresee that Vivaldi will soon be my only browser, because once the extension catalogue almost becomes pointless, so does Firefox.

With Firefox 55 and CTR, the download icon suddenly became very big.

I am on Windows 7 and the zoom is at 125%.

Come to support forum and post a screenshot. Does this happen with CTRs default settings?

Firefox 57 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

> This add-on will stop working when Firefox 57 arrives in November 2017 and Mozilla drops support for XUL / XPCOM / legacy add-ons. It should still work on Firefox 52 ESR until ESR moves to Firefox 59 ESR in 2018 (~Q2).

> There is no "please port it" or "please add support for it" this time, because the entire add-on eco system changes and the technology behind this kind of add-on gets dropped without replacement.

Well, I guess it's finally time to stop using Firefox. Just when I thought Mozilla couldn't get any more incompetent... 'building a better internet'? What a joke. 'Building the internet we want and dragging you along kicking and screaming.' The only reason I never switched before was because I hate Chrome, too, but I may not have a choice now. I wonder what else is available...

Extremely useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An addon like CTR is one of the main reasons to use firefox instead of Chrome or IE or Edge.

The upcoming updates to firefox, forcing WebExtensions, will make it impossible (amongst other things) to have UI changing addons. Therefore Firefox will lose much of it's reason or justification for existence: it's adaptability.

YAY! I can finally remove the annoying search bar drop down UI Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I hate the drop down in the search bar, have hated it for years now. I finally have my old search bar functions back. Firefox, please do something about that before disabling this add-on

Very cool! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The only thing I'm still missing is an ability to hide navigation toolbar on scroll. Is there a chance to have it implemented?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.8.1). 

Hiding stuff on scrolling is very unstable ui wise, so such a feature won't make it into CTR. However I can offer you a userscript to test things like that, if you want.

You need an add-on to run custom scripts. Install "uc" from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/uc/

Add the following code into a text file and save it as "hide_navbar.uc.js" (not name.txt):


window.addEventListener("wheel", function() {
document.getElementById("nav-bar").style.visibility="collapse";
}, false);

window.addEventListener("mousemove", function() {
document.getElementById("nav-bar").style.visibility="visible";
}, false);


In "uc" add-on go to "Options", "+Files" and point to your saved "hide_navbar.uc.js". Restart Firefox.

The above code will hide navigation toolbar when you are using mouse wheel to scroll and restore it when you are moving your mouse cursor.

si j'avais à garder une extension, ce serait celle-ci.
si elle disparaît, ce sera avec moi, au détriment de Firefox, tant pis.
merci mille fois pour votre travail

Should I update to latest version? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Dear Developer,
Thanks for all your hard work. This extension has been great!
As Mozilla seems to be making future development/updates of really great extensions “precarious” I wanted to find out if this update will be problematic or breakdown in the future? In other words should I stay where I’m at?
I’m currently using the last version. I’ve disabled auto updates because new FF compliance's have already broken a few extensions (or will cause breakdown in the future). The first example of this coming to mind is/was X-Notifier. The last two versions are FF compliant, but don’t function. They…. suck. Not the developers fault, he warned months ago this would happen with Moz changing policies and updates. Yet everyone initially screamed at him when it broke down. There was a temporarily a work around, rolling back 2 versions. This made everything work again, but then with another FF update, even the legacy version only partly works.
So In regards to your extension, would you recommend updating to the latest version, or stay with the previous one which I’m running?
My Machine; Window 7 64 bit, latest FF 64 bit version for windows.
One more issue, and if you don’t have time for this one no problem.
I’ve read that if users install FF 52 ESR (I’m not sure what it is and if it’s secure), all legacy versions will work. Wouldn’t using a legacy version of FF, as well as extension present a security risk?
This really sucks for FF developers and users. I really hate Chrome, it’s heavy on resources, super proprietary, nosy and intrusive as hell. I have no idea why Moz is killing the best part of FF, the extensions. Especially security and utilities extensions. The other stuff I could care less.
Also, if Moz is going to make life difficult to impossible (depending on which developer you’re talking to, and their extension) for developers, why don’t you all go to Opera? I’m betting a lot of people would follow.
It’s my second choice browser, and although it’s Chromium based, it’s lightweight and even has a VPN built in. But they have mostly lame apps.
You’re opinion/feedback on this whole Moz turning FF into Chrome and how to proceed would be appreciated!
Thanks for every thing!

Mozillas upcoming changes will cause Firefox to stop supporting legacy add-ons like CTR. There is no way to make user interface changing add-ons compatible to WebExtensions.

I do not recommend to stay on "outdated" Firefox versions just to keep some add-ons working, because of security issues. However using Firefox ESR does not mean switching to outdated/legacy versions of Firefox, but just switching to a version, that does not receive feature updates for almost a year. It does receive all security updates though. The current main ESR build is based on Firefox 52 and received every security update "default" Firefox 53 (=ESR52.1) and 54 (=ESR52.2) got too.

I suggest to switch your main browser to Firefox ESR, so all your favorite add-ons work up to summer 2018 and additionally install Firefox Portable, where you can keep track of how Mozillas changes will affect your add-ons and browser usage after Firefox 57 release.

Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi are all Chromium based browsers and share the same add-ons restricted to only modify web content like Firefox' upcoming WebExtensions. Most popular browser add-ons to block/modify web content are already present for those browsers for a long time.

Look here https://github.com/Aris-t2/ClassicThemeRestorer/issues/299
This post of mine is also linked on add-ons main page and on CTRs prefwindow (see "CTR & Firefox 57+" button) and sums up my thoughts about browsers future changes.
