Tabs... AGAIN...

Once again, Firefox is updated, and once again, Tabs are broken.

Could you stop moving them, please?

Tabs belong UNDER the Bookmarks Toolbar. That's where I like to have them, that's where they should be, and for whatever god-damn reason, every major update leaves me scrambling to try and repair Firefox.

USUALLY, they're forced on top, which is awful and unusable in practically every way, and I have to figure out which NEW change I have to make to userChrome.css to make Firefox usable again.

THIS time, they just disappeared. Gone. ONE tab visible; the current. Floating freely at the BOTTOM of the screen, for some fucking reason??!

Yes, I "fixed" it by deleting my userChrome.css, which has them now in the utterly unusable "above everything" position. I guess I'll wait until someone figures out how to repair Firefox --- AGAIN...

Could you just fucking STOP breaking the browser? This shouldn't be a thing. I should not be struck with that sinking "OH NO!" feeling, every time Firefox starts up with a "We've updated" message....

You can try the code in the solution in this reply that I've edited for Firefox 89+:

  • /questions/1305615 tabs below address bar - an ongoing problem not fixed !!!
  • /questions/1339095 HERE is the answer to put "TABS BELOW" which will work with Firefox V90 using the - userChrome.css - file

Note that you likely have to edit the value of --tabbar-top to move the Tab bar to the correct position.

This new code has separate settings for Full Screen Mode, so you may want to check there as well.
