Last time Firefox updated, I managed to find information online about moving the website tabs so they were below the bookmarks instead of at the top of the screen. It was a huge pain-in-the-butt to do.

After a recent re-install, the tabs have moved themselves back to the top of the screen and nothing I do seems to be able to move them back below the bookmarks.

Is there a way I can move the tabs that doesn't involve spending hours hunting through posts on the web, changing hidden Firefox settings, and recoding .css files?

If not, why do you not give the option to move the tabs wherever the user wants? Especially when it makes far more sense to have the website tabs directly above the website being viewed, at least in my opinion?

I'm currently using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit).

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

Hi,

I noticed that when I open a specific site, the tabs bar becomes huge, and when I close it, the bar goes back to its normal height. For example, it happens when I go to this page: Problematic Site

I have no idea why it happens. I remember that it did happen before, but I only noticed now that it has something to do with having some specific pages loaded. So I know it has happened because of some other sites, but I don't remember which ones.

Even if I change the tab, the tab bar stays big, as long as the problematic page is loaded (even on the background).

This also happens in safe mode, so it's not because of my extensions, I imagine. Also happening on another laptop here.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

Thanks,

I have several hundred tabs, tick them all and want to bookmark them, but that never works. I'm not sure what "tick them all" refers to.

There's no built-in way to bookmark all open tabs across all windows at once, but Firefox does have a feature to bookmark all of the tabs in the current window to a new folder. The shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+D, or you can find it on

classic Bookmarks menu on the optional menu bar optional Bookmarks menu button for the main toolbar Does that feature work? If not, is there any error message?

Are you still able to add one bookmarks manually, for example by clicking the star icon in the address bar? If that doesn't work, it can indicate a database problem (more details if needed).

I will also add that the "Settings" menu does not open! Settings, formerly called Options, should open an internal page in a new tab. If you type or paste the address about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter, can Firefox show the page?


==Ctrl+Shift+D = NOT WORK / NOR REACTION / NO MESSAGE ERROR /NOTHING HAPPEN This marks 1000 Tabs, but nothing else can be done, no reaction, no error, no message, I don't know how to write or add 1000 tabs to the bookmarks, I asked a many developers, for 3 years and no one can help, I tried 100 different ways and there's nothing I can do, do I really need to lose my data? "Reset firefox completely" = data loss Even moving the profile and trying to restore it always ends with the same problem, still nothing works, how to save all 1000 tabs to a text file, even the best of the best ways fails, because after saving it is 0KB, no data !!!

Running Windows 10 64 bit with the latest updates on Firefox of 89.0.2. I cannot open a new tab to the google search bar by just opening a new tab. It defaults to showing a google search bar, but Firefox will not allow me to type into it. I am constantly redirected to the address bar to write my google searches or to a separate "search" in the same address bar, depending on which option I selected in settings.

I only have two options in Settings: 1) Use the address bar for search and navigation or 2) Add search bar in toolbar. I have Google set as my search engine.

Your previous version of Firefox did allow me to do exactly what I wanted. Now I cannot.

Under "New Tab" you only allow for 2 selections; Firefox home or a blank page, the latter of which does not show the personalized "rows". If you allowed a Google option there, it might resolve my problem.

I attached a picture of my new tab; it shows the search bar for Google, but it now says "Firefox" where it use to have the ever changing "Google" Logo. I do not mind the Firefox logo, but I seriously am upset that I am forced to type searches in the address bar. Who does that?

Furthermore, by forcing me to type in the address bar, its much harder to see what I am typing and allow for me to make corrections. Once I hit enter, it sends me to a typical Google search page, where I can then make changes, but this seems like an annoying step.

Am I missing something, some setting someplace where I can type in the search bar I indicated on my attachment?

On a side note: Thank you for adding a "Personalize" button on a new tab. It now allows me to add rows for shortcuts. Before I had to:

1. Load about:config?filter=browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows in the Firefox address bar. 2. Double-click on the preference browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesRows and change its value to the desired number of rows and click ok. 3. Check the New Tab Page to see the change right away and modify the number of rows accordingly if needed.

Which I technically have yet to change, because I prefer more than the 4 row limit you set. You will see those shortcuts in the attachment for the new tab.

Thank you for your time. Be safe and have a good day. :)

I have two opened Firefox windows and automatic restoring of the previous browser session at startup enabled. Once I closed one Firefox window and restarted Firefox (the other window remained open), the session didn't get restored. Also, the button "Restore Previous Session" in the history didn't appear. So, there was no way to restore my session. It would be nice if you could fix this bug since my last session contained some important tabs which are all lost now :(

I have open half a dozen or so tabs related to one subject. I would like to put them all into one "super tab", such that only the super tab shows as an open tab. Then, by clicking on that tab, it would show the tabs within it, any one or more of which could be selected. Is this possible, and if so how is it done? Perhaps there's an add-on or extension that would do this.

I have already created a multi-tab bookmark that sorta, maybe accomplishes the same thing. But it's not as convenient as what I envision as described above.

Thanks for any advice or words of wisdom.

In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

Please help me get rid of the stupid and ugly Tab bar space on newest Firefox. I hate Tabs and now there is a big space above the address bar for Tabs. I have looked everywhere for a way to turn it off like it has been since Tabs came out. I only want new windows if I want a new window.

If I can't turn that huge space gap off is there any way to go back to what I had before the last update without messing everything up? Why did someone decide to make the browser window smaller and waste that space by making the browser bigger....

Sorry if I sound cranky but, I started using Netscape Navigator 1.0 and every version since and this is the worse thing that has ever been done to a browser... Thank you for any help you can give me!

With several tabs available, I used to be able to put my cursor on a tab (of course it opens) but holding the cursor on the tab, I could drag it right or left to rearrange the order of tabs. Now that doesn't work any more. I have to assume it is because of a recent upgrade in Firefox version. I have version 89.0.1 and I also miss the box around each tab, which more distinctly visually identifies the tab. Now the only one with a box around it is the one selected. The loss of surrounding box and the inability of dragging the tabs is probably connected. Suffice to say I do not like this "improvement" and would like to go back to the previous tab system....
