if you never edited userChrome.css it will actually be userChrome-example.css .Remove the " -example " and you will now have userChrome.css.You can then open it with notepad and then play with code (most of which will be copying code as above examples show in other posts,maybe changing something to suite your needs or likes and pasting into userChrome.css).You then close-will be prompted to save or not.

Have fun!

thank you both for your replies.
i installed the extension with the xpi file, and edited the userchrome.css file after removing -example from the filename. saved file. restarted firefox.
at no point have i seen a clock in firefox. i guess i should stick to the easy extensions where i don't need handholding.

Has anyone been able to find a way to get ride of the "shadows of the numbers not displayed"? It would make it much easier to read and also give it a cleaner appearance.

Not sure yet. Altho the code you posted does not work the same for me. If I use your code it blue background on black numbers.

Here's the full code I use that includes the place where you can change the background color. I use a photo editor to get the color number but you can also find them here Color Codes

.lcd-labels {
font-family: Digital Readout Thick Upright !important;
font-size: 2.0em !important;
padding: 0px 2px !important;
margin: 0px !important;
}

.lcdclock-bgcolor {
background-color: #E0E0E0 !important;
}

Hi FE,

this is working for me:

.lcd-fade-label {
opacity: 0.1 !important;
color: #FF0000 !important;
}

The important thing here in order to get rid of the "shadows of the numbers" is to lower the opacity value: between 0.0 and 0.2 should be fine.

The color of course, will be irrelevant

Thanks Diazruanova See Profile

I put it in my userchrome and set the opacity to 0.0 and the shadows disappeared.

Great work!

I wish I knew you had that problem. I would have told you that earlier. I left mine slightly shadowed to give that real digital feel.

Here is my complete code:

.lcd-disp-label {
opacity: 1.0 !important;
color: black !important;
}

.lcdclock-bgcolor {
background-color:#F8F8FF !important;
}

.lcd-labels {
font-family: Digital Readout Thick Upright !important;
font-size: 2.0em !important;
padding: 0px 2px !important;
margin: 0px !important;
}

.lcd-fade-label {
opacity: 0.25 !important;
color: DimGrey !important;
}
