New old Bug in 106 With Tabs Space Usage

Hi!

I hardly use tabs, and I have a widescreen notebook. So one of the most important features a browser must have is not to waste vertical space.

Unfortunately, Firefefox still has always tab bar open even if there is only one tab.

There was a css code to overcome this problem. Unfortunately, it does not work with FF 106 anymore (another one stopped working with 103). It always shows a "+" sign and uses vertical space.

1. ) How can I get rid of the tab bar? Is there a working css code or is it a feature now of FF? 2.) BTW, also one of the most important addons for me "I don't care about cookies" is not working anymore 3.) How can I fully stop updates? They are causing far too many problems 4.) I already know that css and addons are not officially supported by Mozilla.

Hi Terry,

Thank you for the answer. You have motivated me to search again and I found the solution (together with the existing CSS code which I probably had from Reddit):

Thank you especially for the links regarding stopping automatic updates. I will try them out and then no updates for as many years as possible!

All the best! Dimi

I have seen references on the Reddit sub FirefoxCSS to hiding the tab bar when only one tab is open. IIRC, it is possible. Code sometimes needs to be updated for a new version of Firefox.

You may need to update the add-on which is no longer working.

You can stop automatic updates with a policies.json file. Two are available. I'll post external links separately because there will be a delay before they are available.
