Hello,

I am looking for a way to hide my tab bar when there is only one tab open. I almost found the solution there: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1297983 But it is not exactly what i am looking for. This solution hides the tab but not the tab bar it self. I mean it leaves some black empty space because i use dark theme.

I kept looking for a solution to hide the container. I found this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1271391 The problem is: this solution hides all the time the tab bar. No maters how many tabs opened.

I experimented mixing these two solution. I have try:

  1. tabbrowser-tabs tab[first-visible-tab="true"][last-visible-tab="true"] + #mainwindow:not([tabsintitlebar="true"]) #TabsToolbar {
 visibility: collapse;

}

I tried the other way around, with "#mainwindow" first. I tried without the "+" sign. But none worked out.

Chosen solution

I run Windows. I mention that just in case I say things that are nonsensical when applied to Linux.

Do you normally show the title bar (i.e., the full width page title), or do you let your tabs slide up into the title bar space? At least for me, the following works pretty well with the Title bar displayed, but isn't as nice without it:
