Hi, As far as I know, Firefox hasn't recently updated but somehow my address bar is now below the tabs. I have searched everywhere and can't find a solution. Searching shows that this has been happening repeatedly for years with people having to go as far as adding code to configure it. It has never happened to me until the change appeared randomly today. Am I missing something, or has the option completely (and pointlessly) disappeared? Please point me in the right direction to restore the position of the address bar. Thanks.

Hi. The only way to place the tab bar below the address bar is with userChrome.css. You must have such a file in /chrome in your profile folder. It needs to be updated. Commonly used code is provided by MrOtherGuy on git hub.

If it has been some time since you updated Firefox, you may simply need to change the value of the following preference in about:config to true. toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets
