  • (2020-04-15) Lucas Liu: Anyone is having trouble connect to the live-css server as I do from localhost on Mac? I'm launching the server as instructed however it is only running with http but the extension is looking for https. Other than this, everything is perfect.

  • (2019-07-24) Władzix 2: Incredible! Everything I was searching for, runs Live so you dont have to run every time you edit something,very nice suggestions while typing and other small features like colors are displayed in squares while typing names. The one of the best features is auto enable on websites. I have made dark theme mode for some websites, thanks to this extension! Awesome!!!

  • (2019-06-01) Logan Bunelle: On ne ne peut pas éditer les fichiers html locaux, mais appart ça l'extension est extrêmement utile et très bien réalisée. Je l'utilise depuis au moins un an je crois, et je n'ai jamais eu aucun problème. Elle sauvegarde très bien le css quand on quitte la page et l'interface est très intuitive.

  • (2020-02-07, v:7.0.10) Vizlox: Color Editing Tool Not Working
    When I try to open the color tool menu by clicking on the square to the left of a color hex, it brings up the menu but without any of the buttons and sliders, only a blank white rectangle. At the top is the color gradient graphic which I am unable to interact with. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension from chrome, I tried rebooting chrome, and I tried restarting my computer but none of these fixed the issue.
  • (2020-01-13, v:7.0.7) Ben Cheshire: Custom CSS for iframes overwrites the parent page's CSS too
    When working in an iframe, if the parent page is refreshed, the custom CSS for the parent page will sometimes (but not always) be overwritten by the iframe's CSS. It's just a minor annoyance for me as I don't need the parent page to have custom CSS, so I just remove the entire block every time it happens. There was one occasion where the parent frame's CSS overwrote the iframe's CSS, luckily I already had a backup of the stylesheet.

    Please add sync or export.
  • (2019-08-19, v:7.0.7) Simon Edwards: URL changed, cannot access my code to copy/restore it to the new URL
    Hello, Love the extension, I've been using it for a very long time. I'm running into an issue where the URL of a website I've heavily customized has changed its URL e.g. example1.domain.com to example2.domain.com which means all of my CSS got reset. Is there any way for me to access my old CSS which is still stored on example1? I cannot get to the old URL as it immediately redirects to the new URL so I'm a bit stuck, and I've got about 8 months worth of CSS stored in there. Kind regards, Simon
  • (2018-12-24, v:7.0.7) Thanks for the awesome extension

  • (2018-08-04, v:7.0.0) How can I edit the css for an iframe?

  • (2018-07-10, v:7.0.0) Refano Pradana: can it block magnifier glass ui?
