Close Multiple Tabs sub-menu in context menu

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

hii You might find a better hack, but here's one. This is a pair of custom style rules that you could apply to Firefox's tab context menu using a userChrome.css file.

Are you already familiar with userChrome.css from making other tweaks to Firefox's toolbar area? If you aren't, when you have 10 minutes to focus on it, here's how it works:

This assumes you do not already have a userChrome.css file. If you do already have a working userChrome.css file, you just need to add the rule under (A) to your file.

(A) Select and copy the following style rule code

/* Hide "Close Tab Options" menu label/icon */

  1. context_closeTabOptions > label,
  2. context_closeTabOptions > hbox {
 display: none !important;

} /* Move "Close Tab Options" menu items into menu */

  1. context_closeTabOptions > menupopup {
 display: -moz-box !important;
 -moz-appearance: none !important;
 border: none !important;
 margin-inline-start: 0 !important;
 margin-top: 0 !important;

}

(B) Generate and download a userChrome.css file

Open the following page and paste the above rules into the editor, replacing the sample rule:

https://www.userchrome.org/download-userchrome-css.html

Then click "Generate CSS File" and save the userChrome.css file to your computer. (See first attached screenshot)

Use the downloads list on the toolbar to open the downloads folder directly to the new userChrome.css file. (See second attached screenshot)

Minimize that Windows Explorer window for later reference.

(C) Create a new chrome folder in your profile folder

The following article has the detailed steps for that (#1, #2, and I recommend #3)

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html

I have videos for both Windows and Mac in case the text is not clear.

(D) Move the userChrome.css file you generated in Step B into the chrome folder you created in Step C

The next time you exit Firefox and start it up again, it should discover that file and apply the rules.

Thanks for the reply. I followed all the steps, but nothing changes - the annoying sub-manu "Close Multiple Tabs" is still there....

I think I found it:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste popup and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If the ui.popup.disable_autohide preference is bolded and "user set" to true, double-click it to restore the default value of false

The value was already 'false'. This is not the problem. It seems that this was implemented as part of a bugfix: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=887515.

hello, As a test to see whether this could be a settings issue, you could test in a fresh Firefox profile. New Profile Test This takes about 3 minutes, plus the time to test sites where this problem occurs. Inside Firefox, type or paste about:profiles in the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it. Click the Create a New Profile button, then click Next. Assign a name like Sept2016, ignore the option to relocate the profile folder, and click the Finish button. After creating the profile, scroll down to it and click the Set as default profile button below that profile, then scroll back up and click the Restart normally button. Firefox should exit and then start up using the new profile, which will just look brand new. Do right-click context menus work any better in the new profile? When you are done with the experiment, open the about:profiles page again, click the Set as default profile button for your normal profile, then click the Restart normally button to get back to it.

Yes, there's a comment inside of the code: /* BUG: MUST HOVER TO VIEW ITEMS */

You have to ask them about it.

This is likely because shadow DOM is being used for the menupopup and the shadow DOM only seems to work properly with "display:-moz-popup" and not with "display;-moz-box".

The code previously posted by jscher2000 used "display:-moz-box", but that isn't working (the popup menu isn't populated; I can make it work in the Browser Toolbox with display:-moz-popup and then change it to display:-moz-box).


If you want to experiment, here is some modified code that works better for me:

/* Values for spacing of items */
*|*:root {
  --userCloseTabItems: 2;
  --userCloseTabMenuItemHeight: 2em;
  --userTabContextMenuWidth: 175.48px;
  --userTabContextMenuOffset: 3.5px;
}

/* Hide "Close Tab Options" label/icon */
#context_closeTabOptions > label,
#context_closeTabOptions > hbox {
  display: none !important;
}

/* Make space to inline the menu */
#context_closeTabOptions {
  height: calc(var(--userCloseTabItems) * var(--userCloseTabMenuItemHeight));
}

/* Move "Close Tab Options" menu items into menu BUG: MUST HOVER TO VIEW ITEMS */
#closeTabOptions {
  -xmoz-appearance: none !important;
  border: none !important;
  box-shadow: none !important;
  margin-inline-start: calc(var(--userTabContextMenuOffset) - var(--userTabContextMenuWidth)) !important;
  margin-top: 0 !important;
  width: calc(var(--userTabContextMenuWidth) - 4px) !important;
}

/* Prevent cropping text */
:-moz-any(#context_closeTabsToTheEnd, #context_closeOtherTabs) .menu-text {
 margin-inline-start: 17px !important;
 margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

In Firefox 78, the Tab context menu has been changed to add a new "Close Multiple Tabs" submenu. Inside of this submenu are options to "Close Tabs to the Right" and "Close Other Tabs".

This change was made for the following reasons:

   As feature are added and context menus grow, we would like to keep the size of the menu short enough to be read quickly. One of the ways we can do this is to group similar commands. By grouping the commands that close multiple tabs together, we can shorten the height of the context menu by one menuitem. It should be noted that we also do not want to remove context menuitems just for the sake of it because some context menuitems are the only accessible non-keyboard-shortcut way for keyboard-only users to access such functionality as Pin Tab, Mute Tab, Duplicate Tab, etc.
   Some users have reported that they accidentally clicked the "Close Tabs to the Right" and the "Close Other Tabs". While a user has the ability to restore their tabs through the "Undo Closed Tabs" menuitem, some data may have been lost as well as potential increased network usage if we are unable to restore the pages from the Firefox cache. We decided that adding a little "speed bump" before a large destructive action could benefit users. We prefer this over a modal dialog that requires users to move their mouse across the screen and thus requires more time.
   The "Close Multiple Tabs" submenu provides us an area to add some extra features that users have asked for over the years such as a "Close Tabs to the Left" option.

You may want to mark your reply as the Solution (since there's no "Best Workaround" button) so people can find it more easily in this long thread. There's usually a link/button/menu item to the right of the reply (or possibly below it) for that purpose.

This isn't just in the beta, it's released and is just plain stupid. Why make something used regularly HARDER and more cumbersome to use? Shouldn't need an add-on to bypass stupid changes. PUT IT BACK or give us an option within Firefox to put it back. Sheesh.
