How can have multi-row tabs with Firefox 70?

Posted

Tab Mix + allowed old Firefox to support multi-row tabs. I need it absolutely to upgrade. I googled it, found plenty of solutions that changed at every release, none worked with 70. PS: I asking using Waterfox, but Waterfox 2019 killed most legacy add-ons, so I'm looking to to back to Firefox. I solved almost all my problems, except this one which is crucial. I often have 30 opened, having to scroll is unbearable.

Thanks, my CSS file was working in fact, and after checking, toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations was already set to true. I don't remember doing it, but I must have at some point.

I found a working css file at:

You can check to the right of your question for the Question Tools section to see whether the Edit link is in there.

More generally, the following is a good site for updated style rule hacks like this because many pre-release users post there and solve these problems before the official release:

next time you should add your OS as well , though try reinstalling the older version and try it again , if its working and try updating to the latest version and also make sure your settings are at default.

The above does not work with Firefox 70 because you need to make hange toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations true in about config by double clicking on it.

I made a video on how to get multi-row tabs for Firefox 70, by request. https://youtu.be/i-y56-Xrpts

Bearing in mind that it is getting more difficult to get multirow tabs, I am scared that Firefox will make it impossible. That would be very sad since multirow tabs are very important to me.
