How do I remove tabs from the tab strip at top of desktop

Posted

The tab strip that runs across the top (just below the url address) has tabs that I don't want there. I want to remove them. One tab, in particular, does not even show an icon but just the url address. I especially want that one OFF. I can't figure out how to take tabs OFF the tab strip. At the LEAST, I want to hide the tab strip from view.

You can check for problems with the sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak files in the Firefox Profile Folder that store session data.

Delete the sessionstore.js file and possible sessionstore-##.js files with a number and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups and open and closed (undo) tabs to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note or bookmark them).
