What is an Injected Stylesheet and How to Remove It?

Injected Stylesheets are a type of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) that are added to a webpage through JavaScript. These styles are added dynamically by the code and are not included in the original HTML or CSS files.

Injected Stylesheets can be useful for making quick changes to a webpage's appearance without having to modify the underlying HTML or CSS files. However, they can also cause issues if they conflict with other styles or if they are not properly removed.

How to Remove an Injected Stylesheet

There are a few ways to remove an injected stylesheet:

  • Using JavaScript: If the injected stylesheet was added using JavaScript, it can be removed using JavaScript as well. For example:
var style = document.getElementById('injected-style');
if (style) {
  • Using DevTools: Most modern browsers come with developer tools that allow you to inspect and modify a webpage's HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You can use these tools to find and remove the injected stylesheet. For example, in Chrome:
  1. Right-click on the webpage and select "Inspect".
  2. Select the "Elements" tab.
  3. Navigate to the injected stylesheet.
  4. Right-click on the style tag and select "Delete element".
  • Using CSS: If the injected stylesheet is causing conflicts with other styles, you can use CSS to override it. For example, if the injected stylesheet is adding a red background color to a div:
div {
  background-color: white !important;

By using the !important keyword, you are telling the browser to prioritize this style over any other styles.

Regardless of which method you choose, it's important to test your changes thoroughly to ensure that they don't cause any unintended side effects.
