I have windows 10 on my HP laptop and Firefox (version 44) browser as my default browser. Last week I downloaded  a custom "brushed black" appearance theme add-on  which looks very nice. But suddenly today I noticed that the bookmarks bar area(right below the menu bar) has been covered with a white opaqueness which makes it harder to see the bookmark titles. Anyone use firefox and know how to get rid of the opaqueness thats covering part of add-on theme?

 

* I hope its not Microsoft's update that is intentionally making it harder for us to use Firefox browser...

 I have Firefox 44 with Windows 10, and haven't seen this, so I believe it's something on your computer.  I have no idea what, but look at what you've recently installed or changed.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Niweg.....the same thing occurred on my Firefox using Ubuntu.....caused by Firefox 44 and I want to find a solution, too. I've had the Ubuntu

Ambience Fox theme for almost 2 years. The lighter shade of the bookmark toolbar does make it bit harder to read.

Perhaps you could find something to fix that in the Classic Theme Restorer extension?

joemiami....you can easily change to another theme by adding another...one you might like is this: Dark Fox :: Add-ons for Firefox

I'm not going to change mine today...maybe tomorrow if I still find the present color a bit too light.

I had this issue too, although it affected the whole navbar.  Looks to be a Mint/ubuntu thing...

 

Phantom010's suggestion worked for me/I also found it on mozillazine. 

 

If you use Classic Theme Restorer, go into the "Toolbars (3)" menu and make sure "Navigation toolbar/remove background" and "Bookmarks toolbar/remove background" are both checked.

 

I didn't find a similar option for "Tabs", but I was able to set "Tab colors & text" to a gradient that sort of blends in to the overall theme.

 

There was a more complicated (file editing) suggestion on mozillazine, but I try not to play with that stuff if possible.
