Is it still possible to move tabs under the address bar?

Back several versions ago, a Firefox update moved tabs to the top of the screen, just below the header and above everything else. For me, this is totally counter-intuitive. So I restored the older version of FF and disabled updates. Well now we're at the point where some pages aren't working and I'm being forced to update (v82). And of course, the problem has returned.

Is there any way to return the tabs to a position below the address bar and above the page itself?

And while I'm at it, is there a way to customize the looks of the tabs so that they once again look like the file folder tabs that they once did with the curved top corners? For me, this made them more easily identifiable as tabs.

Is the feature you are looking for the Bookmarks Toolbar? See the following article: Bookmarks Toolbar - Display your favorite websites at the top of the Firefox window Basically, the feature is still there and available, only hidden by default to maximise screen space for content. Just right-click an empty space on the tab bar (the one you drag to move a window) and enable the Bookmarks Toolbar by clicking its option. To add a page to this toolbar, just drag it where you want it there.

On your second question: Read this thread on rounded tab corners.

I think I might have tried this back when I first had this problem. I just tried it now and it didn't fix it.

EDIT...

I just tried implementing the rounded corners fix suggested by Václav Trpišovský. Not only did I get the rounded corners, but the tabs moved down to where I want them. So all good! Thanks!

That worked! It almost looks like the area that the tabs are in isn't quite tall enough for them, but I'll look through that userchrome.css code and see if anything looks obvious that I could adjust. Thanks!

EDIT: Found it. Some of the code that was used to move the tabs down below the address bar had this:

--tab-min-height: 25px !important; /* adjust */

Upping that to 30 looks nicer.

In Firefox 69 and later you need to set this pref to true on the about:config page to enable userChrome.css and userContent.css in the chrome folder.

That was it. That was part of the instructions to round the corners.
