Since you have removed the option to lower tabs to the bottom of the top where they used to be the tabs are no longer useful and take up space how can I remove them completely since they are now just taking up screen space. It takes just as much time to click on the open windows in the task bar as it does to use tabs in the top of the screen so now I am just going to open everything in a new window and remove the tabs. I will not use an add on for this.

I obviously read your post and posted an additional option if add-ons were not suitable for you.

If you don't want to install an add-on, put the following style in the userChrome.css file and restart Firefox. You can use the Stylish add-on instead, if you have it installed.


@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);
/* The above line should appear only once in the file */

#TabsToolbar { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 99 !important }

thank you for your quick support. But for future reference if a person requests info with the use of addons don't give addon links.

I use Clippings to paste my responses since so many people request it. I'm sorry I didn't customize it to one person. You could've simply ignored it and tried the userChrome.css alternative.

yes I could have but your response looked like my request was ignored. Sorry about the miss communication and thank you. I get so much tech support now days where people don't read what the problem is only the first 2 sentences.

I understand. But do you know how annoying it is to type the same thing about 10 times a day or more? Clippings is a life saver for Firefox support.

So have you tried the userChrome.css solution?

You can use these steps to create the chrome folder and the userChrome.css file within this folder:

  • Create the chrome folder (lowercase) in the <xxxxxxxx>.default profile folder if this folder doesn't exist.
  • Use a plain text editor like Notepad to create a (new) userChrome.css or userContent.css file in this folder (the names are case sensitive).
  • Paste the code in the userChrome.css or userContent.css file in the editor window and make sure that the userChrome.css file starts with the default @namespace line.
  • Make sure that you select "All files" and not "Text files" when you save the file via "Save file as" in the text editor as userChrome.css.

Otherwise Windows may add a hidden .txt file extension and you end up with a not working userChrome.css.txt or userContent.css.txt file.

You can paste these lines in the userChrome.css file.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
