In FF 7.0.1, the New Tab button on the Tab Strip disappeared after clicking the Tab Group icon and trying to return, so I'm looking for advice on how to get the New Tab to reappear on the Tab Strip.

In Windows Vista, FF 7.0.1, I selected the Tab Group button to try it out. However, when I selected the Tab Group button again to close that view, the New Tab button in the Tab Strip no longer appears. I'm requesting help to restore the New Tab button (has the "+" sign on it) on the Tab Strip just to the right of the currently open tabs.

You can find the New Tab button showing as a '+' on the Tab bar.

You can open the Customize window and drag the New Tab button that shows as a plus sign (+) from the Tab bar on another toolbar and it will become a regular toolbar button like the New Tab button that you have in Firefox 3 versions.
Open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout"

If you can't find the New Tab button then click the "Restore Default Set" button in the Customize window.

If you want the New Tab button at the far right end of the Tab bar then place a flexible space to the left of it.

Thanks for the help. I had seen the "+" in the Customize area, but it was named "New Window", so I thought it wasn't correct. I wanted the New Tab button immediately right of the tabs already open, so your flexible space advice was also very helpful. I put the space on the right of the New Tab button, which moved it over where it was before. Back to normal. Thanks again.
