FFox 19 - min & max tabs


1) When I set browser.tabs.tabMaxWidth to any value, the default 250 is still used. The setting does not work

2) Where is browser.tabs.tabMinWidth?

Just installed 19.0

Hello WaltP, browser.tabs.tabMaxWidth and browser.tabs.tabMinWidth, removed as part of the Firefox 4.0 theme work, see in the above link the "Deprecated".

you need Custom Tab Width add-on via UserChrome.css.(it is all in the above links)

thank you
