With a large number of open tabs, an arrow appears to quickly switch between tabs, is it possible to disable it somehow? I would like all open tabs to fit on one line.

You can possibly set the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth pref to 50 (50 is the minimum for this pref) to have more tabs open before the tab manager button appears.

  • about:config => browser.tabs.tabMinWidth = 50

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

There is also browser.tabs.tabmanager.enabled to enable the tab manager always and to show also pinned tab in the drop-down list.
