I'll be darned! The Restart button option is provided by Classic Theme Restorer. I never realized. Thanks a million for your help Lootyhoof. :)

Hello there. I have indeed noticed v3.1.0 has added that border under the tab bar when tabs are on the bottom so my question is how to disable that. I had been going around thinking what could've triggered that before checking release notes but now it's perfectly clear. Just asking because I personally am a fan of how the theme performed prior to 3.1.0.

And what might be possibly an unrelated question but is there any particular reason as to when updating Pale Moon, it resets theme selection to default?

Themes are strict compatibility. If it is falling back to default then the theme isn't seen as compatible at that time. A subsequent update to the theme might bring it back onto compatibility.

Remember an old version of a theme, like a language pack can bust the UI. Extensions can too but previously established Mozilla behavior of compatible-by-default can't be switched off by default else people would compain, loudly.

Fair enough. I'm just wondering since this has happened several times in the past, even though selecting the theme again after Pale Moon's update does make it usable, even though compatibility isn't warranted. But yes, it is always a better practice to use fully compatible addons/themes with the matching browser version.

That border was added in this commit by removing the following code:

Code: Select all

#navigator-toolbox[tabsontop=false]::after {
  visibility: collapse;
}
If you add that code back, either in userChrome.css or with Stylem, it should remove the border under the tab bar.

That's exactly it, and adding that code into userChrome.css worked wonderfully. Thanks for the heads up, the tab bar is being displayed just as it was with the last version :thumbup:
