I accidentally removed the + sign that allows you to add tabs, how can I get it back?

Posted

I accidentally removed the "+" on the upper right hand side of the navigation bar that allow you to add a new tab, and I cannot find how to get it back. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

In Firefox, if you press the three line menu on the right side of the screen, there is a Customize option there. In the customization screen, there will be an element called New Tab. Drag and drop that onto the screen where you want the new tab button to be placed. Then press Done.

For more information, please see Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars.

NOTE: Sometimes the plus button will appear to the far right side of the screen when you are editing the layout and drag it into place. That's normal and it should shift back to where the tabs are when you finish editing.

If missing items are in the Customize palette then drag them back from the Customize window to the toolbar If you do not see an item on a toolbar and in the Customize palette then click the Restore Defaults button in the Customize palette window to restore the default toolbar set.
