went to ff 63 (did not notice this in any earlier version), but is there a way to get rid of the zebra effect in "show all history". IMO-the most annoying and hard on the eyes page in ff. any way to make it solid color.

Hi,
Perhaps it would be better illustrated if you posted a screen shot of the problem?
Bit hard to imagine this error.

No Probs.
If you want a free Photo Resizer, go here & get v3.8 from Faststone...
> http://faststone.org/
Heaps of features & easy to use.
Just reduce them to around 600 x 500 or so.

Firefox Safe Mode should show the page correctly.

&...I think that if you try the default theme, the page will look O.K.
Maybe try another one?

So it is 63 that is doing this & not an extension?

You are right. Been looking at this all day. I have found this, (the culprit) in my user chrome--

/* change color of all text in menus and toolbars */
menubar > menu,
toolbar, toolbar > .toolbarbutton-text,
.toolbarbutton-text,
#nav-bar > .toolbarbutton-1,
.toolbarbutton-menubutton-button > .toolbarbutton-text,
.toolbarbutton-1 > .toolbarbutton-text,
toolbarbutton.bookmark-item, #bookmarks-toolbox,
menubutton, menulist, menu, menuitem, toolbar, tree, tooltip, sidebarheader,
#CustomizeToolbarWindow, #main-box, palette-box, #wrapper-tabextensions-tablist-button, wrapper-tabextensions-labelTabSession-button {
color: black !important;
background-color: lightblue !important;
font-size: 13px;
font-weight: 700;
font-family: arial !important;
}

I have had this in my user chrome since using FF ESR & before, can't even remember the version number back then. and no problem--and it help FF look like I wanted-history also looked normal

But I have found with FF 63-(did not do this with FF 62), or others, this line--"#wrapper-tabextensions-tablist-button, wrapper-tabextensions-labelTabSession-button" 10th line down--causes the zebra effect.
If I remove the line history looks normal, but the rest of FF reverts back to a default color. Trying to find out why, because as I said, on my machine, before FF version 63, this line did not do this, not in any of the ESR versions, or before.

Usually zebra striping involves rules that treat odd and even lines differently. For example, this "color bar" style for the Add-ons page for userContent.css (the odd elements have their default color):

Code: Select all
@-moz-document url("about:addons") {
  #addon-list richlistitem[active="true"]:nth-child(even) {
    background-color: #e0f0ff !important;
  }
  #addon-list richlistitem[active="false"]:nth-child(even) {
    background-color: #f4f4f4 !important;
  }
}


Since the Library uses a tree, look for rules involving tree, treechildren, -moz-tree-row and so on.
