Version 65.0 moved the tabs back to the top of the window. Why isn't the placement optional?

I just updated my copy of Firefox to version 65.0. Immediately, I noticed that the tab bar has now been moved back to the top of the window, despite the hack I used to move it down. I know that I'm certainly not unique in disliking this location for the tabs toolbar. It makes a lot more sense for that toolbar to be below the bookmarks toolbar. That way, it separates the website content from the program's interface. Does anybody know of a way to move the tabs back down below the bookmarks toolbar? TIA

Tabs on top has been the default for a long time now. What method were you using to move tabs below the address bar?

If you are using userChrome.css to move the Tab bar, it seems that the naming convention for some selectors was changed slightly for Firefox 65.

See this for a fixed version of "tabs on bottom" code for Fx65.

In Firefox 65 they have moved the main Menu bar and the Tab bar in one #titlebar container. This makes it impossible to use a simple -moz-box-ordinal-group rule to move the Tab bar to the bottom position.

The code posted in this thread is the easiest way to get the tabs on bottom in Firefox 65+ versions.

Why in God's name should we have to be programmers in our spare time just to get the tabs back below the bookmarks toolbar? Where they were forever and where most people want them. I was a graphic designer for years and design is meant to make the eye move in a logical order in an ad, directions, AND browser windows. It is NOT logical to have to jump up above the open window to the very top of the browser. It's also why there are margins of empty space at the top of pages of written material. At least give us the option to move it back without having to figure out what is quite complicated for non-programmers.
