Using Firefox version 29.0 and want tabs below toolbars. Any ideas?

Posted

I am one of those users who prefer the tabs below the toolbars. In version 29.0 there does not appear to be any solution to getting them there. I have searched all the menu bars and gone the route of changing browser.tabs.tabsontop to false. Nothing has worked so far and I'd hate to load an older version of Firefox just for tabs. Has anyone else used version 29.0 and solved this dilemma successfully?

Thanks for any help or advice...ahava1313

You can install the Classic Theme Restorer extension to restore some functionality that was lost with the arrival of Australis. *https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/ *http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/29.0beta/releasenotes/ *http://www.ghacks.net/2014/01/31/mozilla-decides-uplift-australis-firefox-aurora/

Thank you so much. The first option did the trick. I now have my tabs below my toolbar, right where I like them.

Assistance is much appreciated.

For around 4 years now I have had to train and show many hundreds of people how to make forefox work properly with addon features like Tab mix plus and how to put there tabs below so they could improve there work productivity becouse they just didnt know any better way existed. With over a million people now having downloaded the new classic restore addon in order to get just ONE FEATURE "TABS BELOW" It defies logic that the Firefox Developers either dont know how to use a browser properly or dont care. They are sheep following Internet explorer and google down a black hole of stupidity. I use Firefox becouse its different and its able to work the way I like with TABS BELOW. Firefox 29 lasted aproximately 5 minutes before I went back to FF 28. I would happily use FF 29 but ONLY if tabs are below. This should not require an addon. Tabs below should be the standard and it would be the defining feature that makes firefox stand out. The inability to have tabs below is the very reason I Dont use other browsers. If a petition to get tabs below is made just how many signatures do we need to get the developers to listen. What does it take for the developers to listen to its users. I just dont get why this has gone down the path of becomming more and more like crome and internet explorer both of which I utterley hate becouse I cant put tabs below and organise things in the same way I have always been able to do in Firefox. Where has the difference gone. May as well rebadge as "crome clone" or "baby IE". Please listen to your users and fix this issue as some of us do know a better way and its TABS BELOW
