Does anyone know any userChrome.css recipes that will move the tab bar to the bottom of the window and not put a blank bar at the bottom of the screen is full screen mode like then watching youtube etc. I'm running Linux

I currently use:

/* Move the tab toolbar below the content. */

  1. TabsToolbar {
  position: fixed;
  bottom: -0em;
  width: 100%;

} /* Move the content deck bottom up by the tab height. */

  1. content-deck {
       /* margin-bottom: var(--tab-min-height) !important; */
   margin-bottom: 33px !important;

}

Chosen solution

Ok, So I found something that works in full screen.

#TabsToolbar {
  position: fixed;
  bottom: -0.5em;
  width: 100%;
  }
  #tabbrowser-tabs { width: 96%; }
  #content-deck { margin-bottom: 2.5em; }
#TabsToolbar:not([inFullscreen="true"]) {position:fixed; bottom:0em; width:100%;}

Yup That puts tabs at the bottom, but also the address bar with it :(

How about this one : https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/6x2tmz/can_i_have_tabs_on_bottom_and_bookmarks_above/

Might find something you like here. https://www.userchrome.org/what-is-userchrome-css.html Person will be on later so message back if top URL does not work for you.

Both of those move tabs to near the top of the page. Not under it.

Yes I also found this post, the code at the bottom of the page does work, it's what I'm using, but it leaves a bar at the bottom of the screen if you watch youtube or any other full screen site in full screen. If you look at my original question I already posted that code.

I couldn't manage to memorize your code and compare it to the one posted on Reddit - sorry .....

strange, i cut and pasted userchrome, but this page replaced "#" with the numbers 1. 2. 3. etc

more options

If you start a line with a hash (#) then you start an ordered list (OL tag).


Did you test the code by opening a lot of tabs to make scroll buttons appear?

Note that it is best to only use the in normal mode and disable the code for Full Screen mode (pseudo selector: :not([inFullscreen]))
