Drifting off-topic a little also, but since I made a reference to Chrome, I thought [url=http://www.howtogeek.com/58058/how-to-enable-flashblock-in-chrome-and-make-it-5000-more-secure/ t=_self]this[/url] might be appropriate (scroll down a little).

gaad how stupid can i get. I thought this thread was about Final Fantasy V.LOL. well, since I'm here, im supposed to be talking about Firefox 5.. I havn't tried it yet though. I heard FF5 has no major improvements and It addresses many bugs. Is that true?

Tried FF 5 and ran into a major deal breaker.

It didn't have to do with add-on compatibility as much as userChrome.css.

They've disabled . . . hard coded in Gecko . . . the ":visited" link line in user css's.

I use that to mark my visited links, both external and internal.

The lines I used on 3.6.17 were
  1. Code: Select all

    a:visited:before {
    color: red;
That gives me a nice Unicode marker in 3.6.17.

But 5 disables it entirely.

So I went back to 3.6.17

A cache refresh removes them for the next session.

In case anybody is wondering . . . NO, I didn't come up with this css code all by my lonesome.

Though it would be ego-boosting to claim it was an original thought, it was in fact a stylish.com piece of code that I modified.

Speaking of stylish, it IS compatible with 5. It's just that 5 wouldn't run the particular css that I cited above . . . sort of an add on within an add on that it wouldn't run.

Since the stylish add on shows how a user css has effects on the UI, I use it to look at these things.

If I like them, I then add them to my userChrome.css and then uninstall stylish . . . on the theory that the less add ons the better.

There probably is a trade off there since the userChrome.css file slows things down too, but I see no reason to keep stylish hanging around when I don't use it that often.
