@mattskala Setting aside toolkit bias, my issues with Falkon are:
- "Copy URL" in the context menu doesn't use the select buffer. Ctrl+V paste only, no middle click. This breaks something I do all day long, every day
- Cumbersome password manager (must set a master password that has to be entered repeatedly and is difficult to reset)
- No synchronization features (this is the most forgivable but I have grown to like them)
Outside of that it seems a fine browser and I look at it every so often.
@mattskala It can be manually moved into a new window every time it is opened, but I find the whole process very disruptive. I haven't given up on finding a solution, but I'm not there yet.
The organization is also bothersome, for sure. And of course, even in its own window, it's still huge because it's... a whole other webpage, in all of its widely-spaced glory.
As for alternatives that aren't Firefox, Falkon (formerly Qupzilla) has always seemed promising, but I don't love Qt.
@mattskala People always tell me that when I bring it up and theoretically should be that way, but in practice it's not uncommon for me. If I do go into the settings, it's for something related to the content I'm currently viewing, so having the settings replace that content with itself, instead of appearing in its own window, is unacceptable.
An easy example is if you use the browser's built-in password manager and autocomplete doesn't work on a given site, so it has to be retrieved manually.
@mattskala I am in the same situation as you. I spent a week or so tweaking userChrome.css in Firefox 57 with some success before going to Pale Moon.
The big issue I have with Firefox that CSS is powerless against is that the settings dialog window got replaced with a webpage, Chrome-style. On its own this is a big problem, but what makes it unlivable is that the settings page is hardcoded to open in a new tab in the current window, regardless of any user settings for opening windows/tabs.
