how to open a new Tab in firefox? There used to be a plus sign at the end of the row of open tabs. Not there now.

Posted

Hey Team, I did look at the offered solutions. They gave comments like "Try to click the Restore Defaults button in the Customize palette window to restore the default toolbar set to see whether that works better." What/where is the Customize Palette window? So I guess what I am saying is that although I have been using firefox for many years now, I usually go with the defaults and so I don't get into the Tools are much. I may need a little more direction. Version is 68.0.1

Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars

Type about:customizing<enter> in the address bar.

Note: about:customizing is no longer present in Firefox 47+ releases.

  • Press Alt or F10 to bring up the toolbar.
    Then View > Toolbars > Customize.
  • Right-click on a blank spot in the toolbar and
    select Customize.

In the new window, look for the icon. When you find it, hold down the left button on it, and move it to where you want it to be. You can move any of the icons you want from here, but; some icons are locked in place.

There is also a Restore Defaults button at the bottom middle.

Hi John Heaton, You can find the Customize Palette window by right-clicking on a blank area of your toolbar and selecting Customize.

Thanks Fred Didn't think of using the View menu item. Restored defaults got it back.
