Moving webite tabs below bookmarks

Last time Firefox updated, I managed to find information online about moving the website tabs so they were below the bookmarks instead of at the top of the screen. It was a huge pain-in-the-butt to do.

After a recent re-install, the tabs have moved themselves back to the top of the screen and nothing I do seems to be able to move them back below the bookmarks.

Is there a way I can move the tabs that doesn't involve spending hours hunting through posts on the web, changing hidden Firefox settings, and recoding .css files?

If not, why do you not give the option to move the tabs wherever the user wants? Especially when it makes far more sense to have the website tabs directly above the website being viewed, at least in my opinion?

I'm currently using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit).

Chosen solution

Normally when you reinstall Firefox it simply picks up your existing settings. Did Firefox indicate that it couldn't use your existing settings and needed to create a new profile?

I'm asking because:

You already know that you need to use a userChrome.css file for this project. If you still have the files from your old profile, you can just copy/paste the chrome folder from your old profile into your new one, set one preference, and then restart Firefox.

But if you are starting from scratch, it's not going to take hours. Here's how you do it:

(A) Download the style code

There are many possible sources. I have some files here:

https://www.userchrome.org/what-is-userchrome-css.html#movetabbar

After downloading, use the downloads list on the toolbar to open the downloads folder directly to the new userChrome.css file. (See attached example screenshot)

Minimize that file browser window for later reference.

If you already have a userChrome.css file, the rules in this file can be added to your existing file. If you do not already have a userChrome.css file, please continue.

(B) Create a new chrome folder in your profile folder

The following article has the detailed steps for that (#1, #2, and I recommend #3)

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html

I have videos for both Windows and Mac in case the text is not clear.

(C) Move the file you downloaded in Step A into the chrome folder you created in Step B

You can drag and drop between the two file browser windows, or use right-click > Copy in the source window and then right-click > Paste a blank area in the destination window.

(D) Rename the file to userChrome.css

Right-click the file and choose Rename. Then delete the -tabs_on_bottom_Fx74-80_WindowsLinux part so the file name ends up being userChrome.css.

(E) Set Firefox to look for userChrome.css at startup -- see step #6 in the above article.

The next time you exit Firefox and start it up again, it should discover that file and apply the rules.

Success?

You can possibly try the code posted in the thread.

You may have to adjust some of the vars that are defined at the start of the code.

Thank you so much, jscher2000!

Unfortunately, there was file corruption involved, so I couldn't reuse my old profile (in fact, I couldn't even find it). I spent a bunch of time going through suggested solutions, none of which worked. It had been years since the last time I needed to do this and there was a lot of out-dated info out there that just didn't work.

Your solution worked great!

If only every question I asked online was answered in such a timely, accurate, and polite manner.

I really appreciate it. Thank you kindly!

Look jasher2000, with all due respect, this is bullshit.

I'm a software developer and not unfamiliar with having to go to such obscure trouble for problems I encounter with IT. But I have better things to do than go to such lengths to simply shift the tabs toolbar below the address bar, where it has always been for me until one of these insane daily updates!

Let's be frank, this is why non-IT people rage against stupid developers who believe they know better than their users. They forget the overriding rule - once users get used to a design, it is a complete turnoff to muck with it because the developers sat around and came up with some fancy modification. Normal people I meet are infuriated with IT developers! They don't care about the way a program works - they just want to use it for their purposes.

Software designers have and ego problem, and they are always trying to draw attention to themselves ("Look what we've designed for you!"). Just get out of the way, and leave things alone, or provide easy options for reversions.

Many software companies refuse to verify Firefox as a compatible browser because of their stupid daily updates. I would shift to Chrome like so many others I know except that the effort of learning yet another browser is more than I care to waste on context. Take a leaf from Apple, who despite annoying security changes, have left the basic navigation design alone for decades. (Personally, I blame it all on young people with too many ideas an insufficient knowledge of functional design, but I know that's just sour agist-grapes.)

Hi mmaher2, Firefox generally updates about twice a month, not daily, unless you install one of the pre-release test versions (beta, Developer, Nightly). You can check the cadence if normal releases by reviewing the dates on the release notes:

https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/releases/

As for the question of how the UI should work in Firefox, that's beyond our scope here in support. We can explain features and workarounds, but we don't make the programming decisions.

Thanks, Trevor George! The new update broke tabs under the bookmarks and moved them to the bottom of the screen. This fixed it and put them back where I wanted them. Thanks again!

I have been using FF for many years now. But the answer to this question is my reason to say BYE FF. Maybe developers should read mmaher2's message carefully.

Hi cor-el . . . it was pointless posting that link as the - css - code shown there was way out-of-date. After all this time, and after so many protests about retaining TABS BELOW the Bookmarks Toolbar, one would have thought these complaints might have been conveyed to the Firefox Developers by now, and they should already have done something to rectify it. Thank you . . from a damp and rainy Bristol, UK this morning

I've recently updated the code in that forum response and it should now work in Firefox 89+ including the current Nightly 91 build.

Thank you cor-el. I've had tabs at the bottom since 2019 and the previous userChrome.css has always survived prompt updates, until 90.0.2, where the tabs just disappeared altogether. I replaced the userChrome.css file with the "fixed 89+" code you posted above, restarted FF, and the tabs at the bottom are back!

How do I remove the grey shading that got introduced over my coloured theme, please? It covers everything except the height of the menu bar. Image attached.

Hi henrietta_stroph, that "haze" or "fog" on the toolbars is meant to make the button icons easier to read. We've had it for a long time, and if you still have your old userChrome.css file, the rules you have used up to now might still be in there. If you can't find those, here are some posts from a few years ago in case they help:

Thank you, but I could really use some serious help here. I made a userChrome.css.ORG copy before today's overwrite, but I really don't know what's what in it. I was hoping to attach the file, but this forum only allows images.

I'll paste the file here, and if you could extract the pertinent section into a followup containing what needs to be added to the new userChrome.css to get rid of the fog, I would be grateful. These old eyes are just about worn out today, and my brain is confused after spending most of the day on this project.

Hi Henrietta, as you can see, code does not paste well here. Also, everyone who posted here is getting copies of all this, so it would be more considerate to start a new question and to share code using a site like Pastebin and share that link in your question.
