Is there a way to set min and max tab widths in firefox 17 or 18?


The browser tab width maximum and minimum options are no longer in about:config and the "tab width clip" has no effect on tab width in firefox 17 or 18.

hello, the browser.tabs.tabClipWidth setting does only specify beyond which width a close button is shown on the tab. in order to set a custom tab size you can use this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/custom-tab-width/
