STYLUS - annoying problem

I use the Firefox Extensions add-on known as "Stylus".  Have been using it for years, and it has bee very good,

During the past couple of days, it`s behaviour has gone silly.

I use it mainly on GOOGLE search and on Plusnet. to get rid of the horrendous glare from the white space, as can be seen in this pic.stylus .png

 

Normally, when I shut down Firefox or shut down the laptop(s) at the end of a session, when I restart the laptop(s) the Stylus is available, but now it disappears and I have to "re-install" it at t he start of a session, which is rather incovenient and very annoying...

 

 

( note... I have used "synchronise now" ....but still no saved styles - when I have installed a new version of Linux, and got to the stage of editing the settings on a new install of Firefox, using "synchronise now" always called up the Extensions and the styles from the other laptop or firefox archives .... but not now. )

 


Anyone else having this problem?  Anyone got any ideas on how to ensure that the styles are saved after shutting down

Ignore him, @shutter - more 'sensible' advice - except that it isn't, as you can't do what he has attempted.

Re: STYLUS - annoying problem

Fix

@jab1  Thanks... Actually, the problem has been "fixed" and I had forgotten about this thread..

It so happens that this fix for another problem... also fixed the stylus problem !

https://community.plus.net/t5/Tech-Help-Software-Hardware-etc/Is-there-a-quot-linux-way-quot/m-p/193...

Short version.  before shutting down the computer/laptop. use the menu buger  drop down menu and "Quit". which shuts down all open sites, and they do not appear when you restart.

Thanks for input. Have a nice Sunday.Wink

cheers

Re: STYLUS - annoying problem

Glad you got a 'BOGOF', @shutter  😀

Although I don't (didn't) have your problem, I've always used the 'Quit' option, otherwise I lose all my sites and have to start from scratch, which is a pain when you have 14 sites (in two windows).
