Windows 7: How to reset userChrome.css in Firefox?

How to reset userChrome.css in Firefox?

Hey everyone, I wanted to see what tabs would look like on the very top of Firefox 4, so I edited my userChrome.css file to do so. Well, there was something wrong with how the code was setup (which most people would never notice), so I want to disable it now. So, I erased the code out of userChrome, and restarted Firefox. Nothing happened. I restarted Firefox a bunch of times more, and still, nothing happened. I even went as far as deleting userChrome.css. Nothing happened. So, is there a way I can disable this? Or is it permanent?

I used to be big into this with Firefox and helped in the development of Themes but dropped out back in 2.0. On XP boot I'm still running version 1.5.0.12,lol. What was the location of your userChrome.css that you deleted? Deleting it should have fixed your issue unless you are using something like Stylish which would retain your css edits unless that particular style was disabled in Stylish. I'm assuming since you say that it was userChrome.css that you edited then it would rule out Stylish which by the way would be better for testing out different Styles. One thing to try is emptying your cache. Fx used to cache images of userChrome but as I mentioned, it's been awhile since I've used a modern day version of it. With Win 7, I've gone totally back to IE.

Ok, I'll try clearing the cache. That sounds like a good idea lol. I would've used stylish, but since I'm running Firefox 4, it's incompatible.

EDIT: It didn't work... any other ideas?

Where was the location of userChrome? I'm not on a 64bit but isn't the location for it in two different places?

C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profile.default]\chrome

Oh yeah, that was it. Thanks! I got it fixed now. I had gotten confused of the location; I thought it was C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox 4 Beta 1\Default\Profile\Chrome. I'll remember the correct path next time lol. Thanks again! Oh, and I gave you some rep too.
