I see we seem to have gone back on to old format on here? Is there any plans to put STYLISH format thingy back on please?

It's working fine, for me (on Firefox) — if Stylish 2.1.1 is used instead of the latest 3.0.1. ;)

FYI. I am running 3.0.1 in Firefox 57.0.4 without any problems. It is a bit harder to install and add the 2 stylish files. :thumbsup

Yep, Stylish 3.0.1 and higher (future builds) are meant for the (WebExtension) builds of Firefox (V57 and higher.)

For users (like me) who prefer the legacy (V56 and lower) build of Firefox, Stylish 2.1.1 is the last working version.

Firefox 61.0 has just killed Stylish. :thumbsdown

Oh, sorry to hear that Pierre — was one of the reasons why I did not embrace Firefox Quantum.

I'm sure, though — the developers will come-up with a Stylish update that's compatible, sooner or later. :thumbsup

Stylish has now been blocked altogether by Firefox 61.0 as of 3 July 2018. :thumbsdown :-(

"Stylish" browser extension steals all your internet history
Robert Heaton wrote:Unfortunately, since January 2017, Stylish has been augmented with bonus spyware that records every single website that I and its 2 million other users visit. Stylish sends our complete browsing activity back to its servers, together with a unique identifier. This allows it’s new owner, SimilarWeb, to connect all of an individual’s actions into a single profile. And for users like me who have created a Stylish account on userstyles.org, this unique identifier can easily be linked to a login cookie. This means that not only does SimilarWeb own a copy of our complete browsing histories, they also own enough other data to theoretically tie these histories to email addresses and real-world identities.

Stylus is a Stylish fork without analytics

I am now confused - nothing unusual. The grey matter is slowing down - old age. :facepalm Do I have any options to restore that setting in Firefox? If it proves too hard just forget it. It was nice while it lasted. :thumbsup

I did not import my rules — however, you could try navigating to Manage Styles and using the Import (or Drag and Drop) function highlighted below:—

TF, a new day makes a difference! I have the Firetrust Support Forum back up in its former self using Stylus. :thumbsup Had to start the update from fresh. It was a bit of try this and that. If I notice any bugs I will try to sort them out and/or let you know.
