Firefox Minima

Minimalist Firefox Theme inspired by qutebrowser Screenshot

What this does

Gives Firefox a minimalist appearance and only shows the url bar when it’s focused (CTRL + L). Also, the tab bar is completely hidden when only one tab is opened, leaving the entire window for the website.


  1. Create a folder with the name chrome in your Firefox profile directory and copy the userChrome.css into it. To find your profile directory, go to about:support or about:profiles.
  2. Go to about:config and set toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true
  3. Restart Firefox.


If you’re using Nix to manage your system, you can install the theme in a declerative way too:

programs.firefox = {
    enable = true;
    profiles.default = {
      isDefault = true;
      userChrome = ''
        @import "${
            builtins.fetchGit {
                url = "";
                ref = "main";
                rev = "96da97aa71ef4bf61feaa4d54395598e3bd7f0d3"; # <-- Change this
    settings = {
        # Enable userChrome customizations
        "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" = true;

You will need to specify what revision to fetch, see fetchGit documentation for more information.
