How can I get rid of the large space above my tabs?

Posted

This image shows a very large space above my tabs. I want to throw my cursor at the top of the screen and click a tab, and this prevents that. How can I get rid of this large space?

EDIT: I have fixed this problem myself by doing a "factory reset" on Firefox, which can be done by clicking on the orange Firefox button on the top-right, then going to Help > Troubleshoot Information. In there should be a button called "Reset Firefox". This puts the tabs at the back.

This is normal. You can change to the menu bar instead are if you feel more comfortable.

The tab bar will in the title bar if the Firefox window is maximized.
You can also consider full screen mode (press F11 to toggle).
