firefox missing elevator??

Post#1 by Burninbush » 09 Jun 2017, 03:15

Taking a guess this is the right place to put this? Please move it if necessary.

System is a 3.2.2 frugal install on an amd x86_64 mobo. Here's my dumb problem, which I'm not certain is really a problem? I have the latest upgraded Firefox 53-something, which has the same issue it has always had since install: there are no up/down buttons in the elevator field. So any click in the blank region of the elevator will result in a jump to the beginning or end of the file. You can still move it by dragging the elevator up/down, and keyboard arrow keys still work.

Hope there's some simple fix. I searched about:config to no avail.

TIA for any help.

Hi ... immediate response. I think maybe you recommended them to me back in the 3.22 era, they are NOT what I'm asking about.

Do you have the current x86_64 version installed? Does it show the missing buttons? Does anybody else have/not have the elevator buttons?

Sincere thanks for trying. I'm after the older version of how it was done.

I am running the newest beta of FFx, firefox-65.0b6-x86_64-1.xzm; And it also has no elevator buttons. Seems, for some reason Mozilla thought it a good idea to just remove them.
It not even occurred to me that they are no longer there cause I always use a mouse with scroll wheel, so I never use these buttons, just using the scroll wheel instead.
Still, there should be an easy solution for restoring a decade long GUI feature, but seems thats not the case.
Cheers!

Now, switching from newest Firefox beta to the latest stable palemoon, realizing that PM also has dropped the "elevator buttons"…
PM version is: x86-64 28.2.2

this is nothing to do with the browsers, and everything to do with gtk+(2/3) themes .. see Firefox elevator up/down arrows missing?
