about:addons - Hide Compatibility and "Publish to"

Hides the buttons from the Add-on Compatibility Reporter and Add-on Collector extensions so they don't crowd out the description. They're rarely used anyway, still accessible from the add-on details pages, and it's easy to temporarily turn Stylish off for batch operations. (It also removes them from places where they're useless, like the Stylish and Greasemonkey tabs)

DownloadHelper - Hide Inactive, Compact Active

Hide the DownloadHelper toolbar icon when it's inactive and hide the count and dropmarker at all times to work around the wasted space when the count is disabled. (Recent versions allow the icon to show the same menu as the dropmarker via an option in General -> Behavior)

DownThemAll - Remove 3.x GUI Clutter

DownThemAll 3.x switched to a more distracting "Donate!" button and added an actions sidebar which duplicates the actions already offered in the context menu. Remove them to go back to the simple elegance of the 2.x UI.

As of 2013-10-09, seems to be abusing the user-select family of CSS rules to make selecting text within story chapters more difficult. As this makes it more annoying for me to save quotes and causes problems for people using certain types of assistive technologies, Here's a userstyle to revert that change. I've included all known variants so it should have the desired effect in any browser with a userstyle harness.

Given that the "and stay gone" part of the dismiss link seems to be very buggy, they interact poorly with middle-clicking, and I've only ever seen them used for test messages and "please take a user survey" popups so far, they seem more annoying than useful... so here's a script to hide them.
