The very old Firefox 10.0.2 version that you use doesn't store this setting in a pref, but used the localstore.rdf file to store this.

  <RDF:Description RDF:about="chrome://browser/content/browser.xul#navigator-toolbox"
                   tabsontop="true" />

If you insist in using this version then you should find this in View > Toolbars or you can right-click on free toolbar space.

In case you are making a typo in the search bar, just put tabs in there to pull all the preferences containing "tabs".

Also, the forum software detected your Firefox as version 10.0.2. Is that correct?

Version 10 is not secure; Mozilla discloses security flaws after each new release. Is something holding you back from upgrading to Firefox 26? Please let us know so we can suggest solutions or workarounds.
