Remove 'Note This' From Google Search Results

You've installed Google Notebook extension, you've used it for a week, and then decided you don't like. Then you've uninstalled the extension. But there's only one thing left: the "Note this" link from the search results that lets you add a note with the snippet you've selected.


How to remove the 'Note this' link in Firefox?

Copy this CSS code:

@-moz-document domain(google.com){
span.bl{
display: none !important;
}
}


Add the code to userContent.css in your Firefox profile. The file doesn't exist by default, so you should create it in C:/ Documents and Settings/ (Username)/ Application Data /Mozilla/ Firefox/ Profiles/ (profile name)/ chrome. Then restart the browser to see the effect.

For Opera 9, copy this code:

span.bl{
display: none !important;
}


Paste it in a blank CSS file. Go to google.com, right-click and select "Edit site preferences", go to "Display" tab and choose as a style sheet the file you've just created.

  2. Oh btw, Macintosh address is:
    /Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/{funny number}.default/chrome

    And for another hack, add this to the userContent.css file too:


    @-moz-document domain(google.com){
    table.j{
    display: none !important;
    }
    }
    @-moz-document domain(google.co.uk){
    table.j{
    display: none !important;
    }
    }


    It super-charges your results by removing the one main important thing which slows down how you recieve your results.
