You gotta add "display: block !important" to your userchrome.css, see this:

As for why Mozilla doesn't support placing tabs, it's mostly to reduce having to maintain separate coding implementations for the location of the tabs, rather than having to maintain top tabs and bottom tabs separately.

userChrome.css is not officially supported, so while it may work, there's no promise that it won't stop working or be broken in the future.

Thanks for your answer. I can understand that it's not officially supported. What i don't understand is why Firefox doesn't allow us to decide where placing tabs as an option. I'm a basic user so I don't know what could be the effort for such implementation that appears to me a simple trick
