Mozilla is awesome, but FF23 has me greatly annoyed! They deleted some of the most useful Firefox features around (Looking at you Browse By Name)
Hiding the tab bar is no longer controllable, I love my screen space, but please make the tab bar vanish if I don't need it. Do I need an add-on for this now? (ugh!)
And now I can't even send feedback on Input- https://input.mozilla.org because it doesn't give me an option to register a persona account!!!
I need to give Mozilla a Tennessee talking to about this snafu. What's the email address for them?

hello, apparently this option has been removed intentionally in preparation for a redesign of the browser which will land in firefox later this year. you can use the following extension to work around the issue though: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/hide-tab-bar-with-one-tab/
if you want to give feedback to mozilla you can do so directly without the need of registering at https://input.mozilla.org/feedback
Ah, how drastic is this redesign?
The feedback is sent! Thanks!
here's a preview on what's coming & it certainly won't be to everyone's taste (personally i think the new ui will become too chrome-like): http://people.mozilla.com/~shorlander/files/australis-design-specs/australis-design-specs-windows7-aero.html
edit: and the look for mac osx http://people.mozilla.com/~shorlander/files/australis-design-specs/australis-design-specs-osx.html
That's not bad, as long as I can keep my browse by name function, Firefox can change the UI like that, but I'd like to have the tabs on bottom instead.
Not bad? Where are the icons for the extensions? Where is the bookmarks toolbar? Where is the titlebar? No add-ons bar any more. It looks horrible!
Since I already had a userChrome.css for other purposes, I figured this would be straightforward to change there rather than in an extra add-on. I can't seem to find a selector that will select the new tab button when there's only one tab, though.
(posted earlier at //bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=877479#c26 )
This selects the first tab:
This selects the new tab button:
DOM Inspector lists the new tab button as the next element after the tabs, so I figured this should select it when there was only one tab:
#tabbrowser-tabs tab[first-tab='true'] + .tabs-newtab-button
It doesn't, though. I tried selecting it after any tab:
#tabbrowser-tabs tab + .tabs-newtab-button
and that doesn't work either. Is there an invisible sibling in between that DOM Inspector isn't telling me about?
Actually, though, neither of these selects anything:
tab ~ .tabs-newtab-button .tabs-newtab-button ~ tab
Are they not actually siblings? DOM Inspector shows them as children of the same box. Sibling combinators do work as expected on the tabs:
tab ~ tab /* selects the second and subsequent tabs */ tab[first-tab='true'] + tab /* selects just the second tab */
