what is this element?

Post by tommy_2 » 2021-04-25, 03:34

could someone tell me what that highlighted portion's name is? I'm finding plenty searching things like 'url bar' but so far aren't sure the left side is being referenced (presuming it's a separate element).

and ideally if/how I can alter its properties in userchrome? eg change bg/text colors?

thanks.

Powerline adapters (dLAN) hardly interfere shortwave radio, so stop using them.

Yes, I still use a 64 bit capable Pentium 4 670 processor with Pale Moon.

You can do some basic alterations of the identity panel using Pale Moon Commander.

It's called the "Identity Panel".

And before you ask, DOMi is DOM Inspector. After you install it, use 'inspect Chrome document' from its menu and click the arrow button, after which you can click on any element of the browser UI and it will be highlighted with a red border, and the inspector will show its details.
