I have just installed Quantum, and would like to move the tabs back beneath the bookmarks toolbar, as I think this is a much more logical location for them. Is it possible to do this, and if so, how? I'm using Windows 8.1/ 64 bit, if that matters.

It seems that new Firefox (quantum) is stubbornly not providing X buttons on Tabs. Is this an internal political squabble? I'm coping without add-ons, except for this. Why must I click a mouse wheel to close Tabs!!!!???? WHY?!?! WTF!!! Why is there not an X button option in Options under Tabs? Why do they disappear in the first place? That's just inconsistent!!

I use many applications that have tabs and every one has X buttons. So know I must stop and think: do I use the middle mouse button to close tabs in this software? Or do I click the X button?! How can this be an oversight? Are you ***ing with users or not? I want to know.

Why are there 40 add-ons to put a CLose Tab button in the Toolbar, and not 1 (single) add-on to put the X button in the Tabs themselves? Why are all of the past about:config options killed? Why is this so important? I want to know. You finally got me to make an account with Mozilla. Are you happy now? WTF??? (All software puts X buttons in tabs. Even Firefox does! Seriously, WTF.)

My Tabs toolbar used to be under my Links toolbar. It is now above the Address toolbar.

How do I put my Tabs toolbar back where I want it (not where Firefox arbitrarily decided to put it)?

Alternately, How do I go back to FireFox 70.0.1?

System: Windows 8.1, 64-bit

              FireFox 71, 64-bit 

Note: My laptop (Windows 8.1, 64-bit) has Firefox 70.0.1 (but wants me to "update" (sic)). It has the tool bars in my preferred order. I'm not about to "update" until I know how to fix FireFox 71.

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

Tabs in new update 29 do not move to bottom anymore, So I uninstalled 29 Went here http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/28.0b9/ downloaded the 32 win one and rerolled back to version 28, everything back to normal :). I'll wait till this is fixed in the about:config if ever or there is a fix that isn't too complicated. otherwise I may even move on. I have been a dedicated firefox user since netscape.

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?

Prior to upgrading to Firefox 29, I was able to restore closed browser tabs by using the Ctrl+Shift+T combination. Since upgrading, however, I seem to be unable to do so. Even right-clicking on a tab and selecting "Undo Close Tab" fails to work.

Is this a bug? Have you changed the way this is accomplished? Or has that functionality been removed?

I don't care for the new Tabs with the fancy photos, search bar, and little annoying icons. I've researched on here but none of the answers seem to apply to me. I have no "settings" icon in the upper right corner to set to "blank page". Going to about:config doesn't help me either as all that shows is the something I don't understand. How can I get just a blank page again please?

I lost over 700 tabs yesterday when FF Crashed. When it was re-opened, I only had one Tab and none of my pinned tabs were there and all the other tabs were gone. All Tabs Helper had all but about 30-40 tabs suspended and I had opened and closed FF many times in the past and it had always reopened the complete list of Tabs with all but the pinned tabs suspended. I really don't want to go into history and tell it to open all the tabs from the last month, this is definitely asking for trouble. I am posting this from EDGE so as not to screw up any chances of a full recovery if possible. Thanks, Ed

I am desperate to remove Delta Search from my new tab page. What do I do after I open about:config? I have done at least a dozen resets, have removed DS via add/remove, am running a virus scan at present...this is TERRIBLE, and there HAS to be a way to get rid of it. When I do a reset, the new tab page is what I WANT...my previously saved pages. However, when I CLOSE FF and reopen, the new page is, once again, Delta. Can you hear me SCREAM? Can you see my TEARS? I am really fed up. Thanks for getting back to me with a solution that WORKS. jo

I have my browser set to restore the previous session when I open Firefox, and new tabs to open blank. With these settings, I used to be able to open new windows and have my homepage load, while keeping the behaviors previously mentioned intact, but when I open a new window now, I get a blank page.

Is there any way to restore the previous behavior, or are all tabs now seen as the same now, whether they're opened as part of new windows or existing windows?
