Feature #7377: Improve Windows 8 camouflage
Tor Browser win8 theme regressions
In Tails 1.2 two unintended changes were introduced in the Tor Browser win8 theme:
- The tab bar isn't on the right of the URL bad any more, but above it
- The search bar is enabled
This was when we moved from a Tor Browser based on Firefox 24 to Firefox 31, which changed the tab bar and UI significantly (or some intermediate Firefox version did). In FF24 the tab bar could be moved through the normal customization, but I'm unsure if it's at all possible any more in FF31+ without extensions. Disabling the search bar can easily be done like it was for the I2P Browser (
This issue affects the "normal" Tor Browser as well as the chroot browsers.

userChrome.cssmoves the tab bar under the url bar, so some customization is possible (source and I have verified that it works). So, can such hacks be used to:
- move it to the right of the url bar?
- change its "theme" to one with less "rounded" tabs, like in our previous theme (and Window 8 IE)?

- Priority changed from Normal to Low

My current take on this is: do another round of websearching + testing IE themes for FF (we're currently crafting our own). If success, then this might fix this ticket. If failure, then IMO this ticket becomes low-prio.
I looked around for 15 minutes, found the same old themes for IE <10 that we investigated in the Tails 1.1 cycle, when developing the Windows 8 theme. I'm not surprised -- who in their right mind would want something like that? ;)

I'm confident that I'll be able to make any headway with this but I can give it a shot. My previous
userChrome.css work was done with the aid of
ÐomInspector and once I had the necessary IDs the
hidden bit was a cinch.
(I expect to unassign this in a week or so after giving up but who knows)
