 +==== Styling ====
 +As an alternative to add-ons like [[stylus]] you can simply add [[language:​CSS]] rules to the file ''​userContent.css''​.
 +
 +=== Method ===
 +
 +  - Open ''​about:​config''​ and turn ''​toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets''​ to ''​True''​.
 +  - Open your profile directory (for me it's ''​~/​.mozilla/​[profile name]''​) and create a directory called ''​chrome''​ if it doesn'​t exist.
 +  - Inside ''​chrome''​ create a file called ''​userContent.css''​
 +  - Added rules to this, enclosed within ''​@-moz-document domain([url]) {}''​ that references the site you wish to target.
 +    * Instead of ''​domain([url])''​ you can use ''​url'',​ ''​regex'',​ etc. See: [[https://​developer.mozilla.org/​en-US/​docs/​Web/​CSS/​@document#​Syntax|@document#​Syntax]].
 +
 +== Example ==
 +
 +<​code>​@-moz-document domain(wiki.ryliejamesthomas.net) {
 + body {
 + background-color:​red;​
 + }
 +}</​code>​
 +
 +===== Troubleshooting =====
 +==== Browser works, pages don't load ====
 +Sometimes after a crash Firefox will start-up just fine, but pages won't load. Deleting ''​~/​.cache/​mozilla''​ seems to fix it.
 +
 +I ended up making an //alias// in my ''​.bashrc'':​
 +<code bash>​alias fix-firefox='​rm -rf ~/​.cache/​mozilla/​firefox'</​code>​
 +
 +{{tag>​fixes "web browser"​ bash}}
