When I bought my computer and downloaded Firefox, I went into Options to customize my preferences. Since then when I open Firefox, the Options tab appears, in addition to my home page tab, and as I use the browser more and more Options tabs appear. This is a nuisance that I have not been able to eliminate. I have the latest browser.

I refreshed FF today and the above unwanted behavior happens.

Each time I click home (FF immediately goes there) yet another blank tab opens with it. Compared the settings with my lap top set up the same way. There, no extra tabs open. How do I turn off getting new blank tabs. Thank you!

I used a .css command to fix the width of my tabs in FF 71, which works fine, but now, the tabs don't close up together after closing tabs. I get odd spaces between them and even at the beginning of the tab bar. (see image).

I don't use plug-ins for the tab parameters/behaviors, they're all .css- based.

The things I want:

- tabs below the bookmark toolbar. - Bookmark toolbar below the below the address bar. - Fixed width tabs (100 px). - Less height being used by the bookmark tool bar. (~30px). - Tab height a little larger than the bookmark height (~40px).

Over the years, I've sort of piecemealed the .css code and it's probably a blazing mess right now for what I want to have. My old .css worked GREAT in FF 70, but it doesn't in FF71. I probably need to have it cleaned up by someone who had a lot more experience than I do.

Any help at least getting my tabs to slide together when one is closed would be great!

Below is the contents of my userChrome.css:


/* Bookmark Sorting Menu */
#menu_unsortedBookmarks { display: none !important; }
#BMB_unsortedBookmarks { display: none !important; }

/* Show Tab Close buttons only when hovered */
#tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
  visibility: collapse !important;

#tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]):hover > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {

/* TABS: height */
:root {
 --tab-toolbar-navbar-overlap: 0px !important;
 --tab-min-height: 27px !important; /* adjust to suit your needs */
}
:root #tabbrowser-tabs {
 --tab-min-height: 27px !important; /* needs to be the same as above under :root */

.tabbrowser-tabs[positionpinnedtabs] > .tabbrowser-tab[pinned] {
  min-height: var(--tab-min-height) !important;
  max-height: var(--tab-min-height) !important;
}

/* drag space */
.titlebar-spacer[type="pre-tabs"],
.titlebar-spacer[type="post-tabs"] {
  width: 40px;
}

/* Override vertical shifts when moving a tab */
#navigator-toolbox[movingtab] > #titlebar > #TabsToolbar {
  padding-bottom: unset !important;
}
#navigator-toolbox[movingtab] #tabbrowser-tabs {
  padding-bottom: unset !important;
  margin-bottom: unset !important;

#navigator-toolbox[movingtab] > #nav-bar {

}

/* Remove Haze NavBar */
#nav-bar,
#PersonalToolbar {

***THE BELOW WAS ADDED THAT RESULTED IN WEIRD TAB BEHAVIOR IN IMAGE**

.tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned]) {

I don't know if I am just getting paranoid, but now when I open a new tab, I am seeing an "advert" at the bottom of the screen.

I say advert, but for want of a better term....

See attached. Some details have been hidden for my privacy.

Is that red rectangle at the bottom "legit" or does my machine have gremlins in it?

So I've made a few changes in userChrome.css to resize the tab sizes with some code that I've collected. In summary, I've changed the height and width as well as hid the tab title.

The problem that I've run into is that the tabs will kinda glitch out and the extra space won't collapse when the tab is closed (as shown in one of the screenshots). It seems to have to do with setting the width of the tab, since when I comment out the css styles to make them normal size again, tabs close properly.

I'd appreciate any thoughts y'all have. Thanks
