Firefox elevator up/down arrows missing?

Post#1 by Burninbush » 09 Mar 2018, 23:12

I dunno if this is an error or not -- about half of my newer distros have the same problem. I'm talking of the up/down arrows at the ends of the elevator field, a feature that often seems missing on distros after about rev 50 of firefox. FF works fine in win7 and win10. FF distros for linux (all x86_64) also work fine from about 43 rev and older.

Is there some setting I've missed? Does anybody else have this problem? These were also missing in 3.22, I asked about them at the time and got no useful answers.

TIA for any help with this one.

Otherwise, .rc4 seems OK. I did the ~200mb download of wine, won't work. Probably needs compat files, which I see no evidence of here.

if you're talking about the up/down arrows on the scrollbar area, this would be because firefox has switched to gtk3 for it's ui..
it would be a matter of finding a gtk3 theme that has these arrows, if such a thing exists.. i guess..

The arrows are missing in my firefox-52.6.0esr-x86_64-1.xzm also in 4.0 and 3.2.2. But scrolling works when clicking the mouse pointer in the "elevator" field, dragging the scroll bar up and down in the "elevator" field and using the up and down keys work also. So not a big problem IMO.

i looked into this a bit more:
for gtk3 you can:
add to /home/guest/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

Code: Select all

.scrollbar {
  -GtkScrollbar-has-backward-stepper: 1;
  -GtkScrollbar-has-forward-stepper: 1;
  -GtkRange-stepper-size: 13;
  }
there's no arrows as such, but there are two squares which work as 'steppers'
you can do something similar with the gtk2 theme, in /usr/share/themes/<theme>/gtkrc (or in the case of Adwaita: main.rc)
just search for 'stepper' in your text editor..
btw, i found this out by searching with DDGo "gtk3 scrollbar arrows"

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Not sure about this gtk theme
In Widget it is BlueMenta
In Icon Theme it is Vibrancy-Color-Dark
in Window Border it is Clearlooks

When I built Mate I like the themes so I copy them when I built LXDE.

And I'm using FireFox ESR v 52.5.2

Please forgive my ignorance -- I went to /root/.config/gtk-3.0, touched 'gtk.css' and then copied your text verbatim into it. Restarted Firefox, and there is nothing extra (boxes or other) showing in the elevator bar. No change.

Search for 'stepper' with text editor? Search what file(s), please? No clue where to look.

What is 'DDGo' that you mention last?

Thanks for trying to overcome my inability to keep up with Firefox. I am strongly considering a switch to other browsers. The changes that came with revs higher than 50 seem almost determined to force people away.

Why /root/ and not /home/guest/?

The default search engine Porteus uses in it's browsers, DuckDuckGo.

yeah well, kde is whole different kettle of fish.. you need to dig into kde settings centre to find what gtk theme is in use(Breeze i think)
and whether this fix works in kde enviroment, i have no idea

i'm referring to /usr/share/themes specificly, <theme>/gtk-2.0/gtkrc(or main.rc)
but anyways, maybe just grab http://www.slackel.gr/repo/x86_64/curre ... 64-1dj.txz
and choose one of these themes(that has arrows) in kde settings centre (i have not complete directions to this gtk setting off the top of my head)
as Ed days DDGo=DuckDuckGo ;)
