    An offline conversation has revealed that userstyles.org seems to be not working in Firefox. This conversation came about because somebody was complaining about having to manually expand spoiler tags on xenforo sites.
    I've used a Stylus Stylesheet (formerly the open-source Stylish before it was purchased by a corporate raider who made it into spyware that was promptly de-listed from Chrome and Firefox's addon pages, a fork was made by somebody else without the spyware) to solve this issue for years. That addon can be found here:
    While it was created for Spacebattles, Sufficient Velocity, and Questionable Questing, all you have to do is add Sorcerers.net/community to the list of sites with "URLs starting with" instead of "URLS on the domain".

    Here I'm going to insert the actual stylus stylesheet in CODE tags so people can copy/paste it in.
    Again, the source is :
    /* ==UserStyle==
    @name           SB/SV/QQ Show Spoilers
    @namespace      USO Archive
    @author         mistakenot
    @description    `Reveals content blocks hidden under [SPOILER] tags. Limitation: cannot close spoiler tags while userstyle is active; must disable style to close spoiler tags.`
    @version        20190714.3.37
    @license        CC-BY-SA-4.0
    @preprocessor   uso
    ==/UserStyle== */
    @-moz-document domain("forums.spacebattles.com"), domain("forums.sufficientvelocity.com"), domain("forum.questionablequesting.com"), url-prefix("https://sorcerers.net/community/threads/") {
    /* for XF1 */
    .SpoilerTarget {
        display: block !important;
        opacity: 1 !important;
    /* for XF2 */
    .bbCodeSpoiler-content {
        display: block !important;
        opacity: 1 !important;
        height: auto !important;
        overflow-y: visible !important;
    Note again, I modified this to add Sorcerer's Place to the list of domains, but that was the ONLY change I made.
    It should be similarly possible to modify it to work on any other Xenforo site, especially if they look identical to SB/SV/QQ or SP.

    To use it, you need the Stylus extension for Chrome or Firefox.
    Also although it is NOT recommended as it might cause a memory leak, there is a Greamonkey/Tapermonkey version.
    Again, the Stylus version is far more efficient all around and the Greasemonkey version has been known to cause memory leaks when dealing with multiple tabs.

    EDIT: Another thread has covered this and clued me in to this link:
