Anyone know how to put the tabs on bottom in newest firefox 72.0.1?

Posted

The old chrome file puts the tabs over the bookmark list and hide them. Anyone know how to fix this?

If you already have code in userChrome.css for "Tabs on Bottom," just remove the namespace line at the beginning of the file, save it and restart Firefox.

If you have other code in userChrome.css, you can keep the namespace line but move your "Tabs on Bottom" code above it (or to a separate file and include that file before the namespace line).

Thank you. I don't think I can sort this one out. That's too much text and I just don't know what to use and what to skip. I'll just leave it as is and learn to live with tabs on top. Thanks again for trying to help me.

Thank you! I did your first suggestion and that worked. I'm not computer savvy when it comes to coding so pointing out what to change helps me. Thanks again.

Thanks!

For those interested in the why of it, Firefox is moving from XUL to HTML a little bit at a time; this piecemeal progression is why our Tabs on Bottom CSS keeps breaking. The reason given for abandoning XUL is that XUL cannot be made modular (that is to say, anything using XUL has access to the entire system).
