Which buttons are you referring to?

Your issue can be caused by an extension that isn't working properly.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

Question owner

I'm talking about the arrow keys on both sides of the tabs. They are missing on some windows.

The little < and > buttons should appear at either end of the tab bar when you have so many tabs that they reach the minimum allowed width. Are those the ones that are missing?

Question owner

Yes. One of the windows has 30 tabs and the arrows are missing.

Can you check your Tab Mix Plus options:

Display > Tab Bar > "When tabs don't fit width" drop-down
