I "upgraded" to 73 and can't find a way to move tabs below address bar.
I found instructions on how to move them but they seem to be only up to 71. Let me make this very clear. This is way beyond my comprehension. I asked someone for help but they were lost, too. What is wrong with a simplified way of doing things? Just a move tabs like before...it seems there are a lot of people who want that. I'm thinking I either have to quit using FF or back up to a different version.

Hi miriama591, the last version of Firefox with a built-in tabs bar position option was Firefox 28 released about 6 years ago. It's not a good idea to back up to Firefox 28.
You probably know you can use custom style rules in a userChrome.css file for this. It's a little bit of a project, so make sure you set aside 10 quiet minutes to work through it.
(A) Download the style code
There are many possible sources. I have a file here:
After downloading, use the downloads list on the toolbar to open the downloads folder directly to the new userChrome.css file. (See attached example screenshot)
Minimize that file browser window for later reference.
If you already have a userChrome.css file, the rules in this file can be added to your existing file. If you do not already have a userChrome.css file, please continue.
(B) Create a new
chrome folder in your profile folder
The following article has the detailed steps for that (#1, #2, and I recommend #3)
I have videos for both Windows and Mac in case the text is not clear.
(C) Move the file you downloaded in Step A into the
chrome folder you created in Step B
You can drag and drop between the two file browser windows, or use right-click > Copy in the source window and then right-click > Paste a blank area in the destination window.
(D) Rename the file to
Right-click the file and choose Rename. Then delete the
-tabs_on_bottom_Fx72-74_WindowsLinux part so the file name ends up being userChrome.css.
(E) Set Firefox to look for userChrome.css at startup -- see step #6 in the above article.
The next time you exit Firefox and start it up again, it should discover that file and apply the rules.
Note that Firefox 74.0 has been released.
