Firefox 127 - close tab button missing for background tabs when more than 10 tabs opened

In previous versions I was able to open around 15-20 tabs before X button disappeared from them and I was no longer able to close them without activating them first.

Now this happens much earlier - only 10 tabs is enough on my 1080p 100% scaling desktop and 9 tabs on my 1080p 125% notebook.

X button is present if you have 10 tabs or less, but disappears with 11 tabs, when there is still plenty of space on tabs to click on X!

I compared it to brave and in brave you can still have 22 tabs opened before X button disappears!

Anyone has any method to force presence of x button? This is really annoying as I often have much tabs open and close only 2-3 of them. Now I have to open each one again to be able to close it.

Thank you! This resolved my issue! Shame that they introduce background changes in ui again and do not notify about it in changelogs, but I already got used to every FF update breaking something.

P.S. Someone on reddit recommended even better code: .tab-close-button { &[pinned], #tabbrowser-tabs[closebuttons="activetab"] > #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox > .tabbrowser-tab:hover > .tab-stack > .tab-content > &:not([selected]) { display: unset !important;} }

If you do not want X on pinned tabs just remove " &[pinned], " part.
