How to get tabs under adressbar, if setting "browser.tabs.onTop" to "false" does not work?

I know that firefox once put the tabs on top, but I had that fixed with setting in "about:config" the value for "browser.tabs.onTop" to "false". Now, after upgrading Firefox to v.29 this entry is still set to the false value, however, I can't get the tabs below the adressbar (which is super annoying). Any ideas how to resolve this?

I print several EBAY labels a day. Just upgraded to firefox 29 (not realizing really what had changed - now regretting) and the built in PDF viewer no longer prints properly. It shows the label fine on the screen, but when sending to the printer (I tried two different ones) it just prints out two blanks pages. I tried a number of different printer settings and as i mentioned two different printers. Can't get anything to print now except two blank pages. If I switch the application settings in firefox to use an external 3rd party PDF viewer (e.g. Adobe reader 11, PDF Viewer plus, etc) those work fine. However, the default built in PDF viewer clearly broke in this new version. A very disappointing launch for me as this is critical feature for my use. Yes, I have a work around, but the point (and new bug) is still valid.

After the upgrade to v29, all sync settings are disappeared in desktop, and the only sign it ever existed is a single link on the options/sync settings tab. Following that link i got an article about the new sync setup, contains a section about how to keep the old sync. I do have all info synced on my iPhone, but the new sync doesn't support iOS. Now what? Switch to Chrome after long years of FF usage? Is the iOS will be supported for sync?

im not sure i can live with this. i need my original firefox back. this version is no good. how do i get the previous theme with my orange firefox button and grey top ?

im am positive that i did not say to update. it just did it on its own. now its gay blue. whats worse is there is a gradient into the gay blue. horrible and i need help to get rid of it.

it wouldve made more sense to put the icons on the left. and leave the search on the right where it belongs.

if i redownload 28, how do i stop it from updating again?

Why are FF29 and Australis so extremely bad compared to older Firefox version? What were the developers thinking when producing this catastrophy?

Why are you trying so hard to make Firefox look like Chrome? WHY? Why is Firefox trying so hard to be a bad copy of Chrome? WHY? Why isn't Firefox the nice and functional Browser I once knew? WHY?

Whoever had the idea of making Australis, please kick him out. And if you're gonna copy Chrome, then WHY DON'T YOU MAKE MULTIPLE PROCESSES FOR TABS?! Instead, you're working not make Firefox look dumb. Great.

FF29 has deactivated moving tabs to bottom - i.e. closer to work area, FORCING users to move the pointer farther to select a tab. about:config setting no longer works. Would someone please explain how removing this option is beneficial to users?

.... just more "we are smarted than you, and know better than you what is best for you" elitist crap.

And don't tell me to use an extension, they come and go, don't work after updates, etc.


Moderator locking this thread. The thread Owner never returned and this thread has strayed off-topic too often. I think users needing Firefox 29 support would be better served by starting their own Questions thread.

Before the update, I was able to use Stylish to get this functionality. However, something is broken with how -moz-box-ordinal-group functions. The only valid entries are 0 (places it above the Menu Bar) or !0 (places it at the very bottom).

Neither of those two places are what I desire. Here is what I'm aiming for, from top to bottom:

Menu Bar
Bookmarks Toolbar
Tabs
Address Bar

See this Stylish for a picture of what I used to have:
http://userstyles.org/styles/46274/firefox-4-bookmarks-toolbar-above-tabs-enhanced

So, my question here is, how can I restore this functionality? Having bookmarks below the address bar does not follow logic, in my mind. And this "now things are easy to customize how you want it!" thing that Australis is supposed to allow... doesn't let me customize it how I want it.

Any help would be appreciated, be it a config setting, a plugin, or some CSS I can plug into Stylish.

WHY would you dock the reload/stop button. Now we can't move it. I heard too many users moved it then forgot where it was. i can see how that creates support headaches for you.

At least dock it outside the URL field, and NEXT to the back/forward arrows. It creates such a horrible usability issue; just not friendly to have to move all the way across the URL field. Surely there's a better solution than dumbing it down to the lowest user skill level and just docking it.

And surely there's a customization solution for users who know what they're doing. Please. Someone.

Bring me back my old firefox UI. I hate firefox 29. It doesn't help me do things quicker and the those bl**dy curvy tabs! Try that with 20+ tabs open...

Please, please revert this retro step in your next version. There's nothing that I'd call an improvement. And a leaky bandaid in the form of an addon is waste of good intentions.

How about dang well not changing everything when you update this thing? Just updated and had all my toolbars get screwed up. It's sad that I have to take up even more space on my hard drive to get an ADDON to make Firefox work the way it already should. Tell us what you are changing so we can decide if we want to update or not. If you are changing the look of the browser, please allow for us to NOT do that and keep our look. It is a pain in the neck to have to hunt down all the settings to change to get this thing to live up to MY VISION of the web. No, this is not exactly a question but a pleading suggestion to not make us want to go to another browser when firefox works great until you update it and I have to spend a week trying to fix it.

I'm willing to give up on Firefox. The new version is completely broken, worse than IE at this point, it's not nice, but I'm not kidding.

For example the back button, I do a google search, click on a result, no active back button. I'm not kidding, I can't go back and try to click on the next result cause it's gone. WTF!
