how can i keep multiple tabs in the tab strip without them compressing into one tab?

Posted

when i open more than 6 windows , they all compress into one tab from where i have to access pages with a drop down menu. i want all the tabs to open up and the individual tabs to appear separately on the tab strip which can be scrolled up or down. thank you

Chosen solution

That is windows' grouping feature you can turn it off by rightclicking the taskbar and selecting Properties. Deselect group similar programs when taskbar is full.

Are you talking about the Windows Task Bar or is this in Firefox?

Can you attach a screenshot?

Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot.

hi

the problem is in the firefox tab strip at the bottom of the page. i have attached two screenshots . when i open more than 6 tabs, they all get compressed into 1 tab. i want all tabs to stay open individually, and the tab strip should therefore have a page scroller icon forming when many tabs open. i have had this in the earlier computer i had, but recently got a new one. now i cant figure how to set firefox to do what i need.

thanks
