userChrome.css

Ok, I am probably missing something fairly basic here.
I am trying to make some edits to userChrome.css for my copy of PortableFirefox. I've tried placing the edited file in:
PortableFirefox\profile
PortableFirefox\profile\chrome
PortableFirefox\firefox\chrome
PortableFirefox\firefox\defaults\profile (didn't think this would work but tried it anyway)
PortableFirefox\firefox\defaults\profile\chrome (didn't think this would work but tried it anyway)

I searched the forums and did not find anything about anyone else having trouble with this.

Any suggestions? Here is the code I am trying to put in my userChrome.css:

/* Make the Search box flex wider
(in this case 400 pixels wide) */
#search-container, #searchbar {
-moz-box-flex: 400 !important;
}

It was copied right off of the Mozilla Firefox Tips & Tricks site.

Thanks,
Bryan

I had the same problem at

I had the same problem at the beggining when I was trying to edit this file. I found through trial and error that the file needs to be located in:

PortableFirefox\Profile\Chrome\

Create the chrome folder there and then place the file within it and all will be well. Smile

Interesting....

Thanks Deuce! Been reading your postings here for a while....

When I put in other userChrome.css modificaitons such as:

/* Shrink tab titles by 10% */
.tabbrowser-tabs .tab-text {
font-size: 90%;
}

they work fine. But the modification to change the search bar size just does not seem to work. Of course I can get around that by rearranging my toolbars a bit and putting a flexible space in front of the search bar so it expands.

Thanks again!

DOH!!!!

It is a "flex" command. It IS working now that I understand the nature of the command better.

Sorry for wasting bandwidth.
