How to disable tab preview in Firefox Developer

Posted

I see that in the previous versions of Firefox, i can disable tabs preview when switching between tabs using Ctrl + Tab in about:config. But now, i can't find it anywhere. So please tell me where i can find this feature again.

Tabs previews is ugly and messy so please help me to remove it.

Sincerely!

That browser.ctrlTab.previews pref should be there on the about:config page.

OK. It looks that currently previews are enabled by default and can no longer be disabled, so this pref does indeed no longer exists. I'm not what branch DXR accesses via mozilla-aurora (could be still Firefox 62)

That pref has been replaced by browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder
