Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

I just updated to Firefox version 89, and now open tabs appear at the bottom of the page (where the search box would be). Opening multiple windows shows all of them at the bottom. Is there a way to get them back to the top under the Bookmark Toolbar where they belong. I can't believe this is something done on purpose ... It's certainly not an improvement. THANKS!

I would like to set the tabs to display below the address bar in Firefox 89 64bit. I believe the setting is in about:config but I can't find it. Firefox does this every so often and I wish they would just have a button to say tabs on top, or tabs below address bar.

Hello, I would like to use the search function in the tab again. How can I adjust this? At the moment it is so that when you enter it it appears right above in the link line (see picture). I would like it to be in the search below, directly in the tab. Before version 88 this was possible. Why was it removed?

hallo, ich möchte wieder im Tab die Suchfunktion nutzen. Wie kann ich dies einstellen? Zur Zeit ist es so, daß bei einer Eingabe es gleich oben in der Linkzeile erscheint (siehe Bild) Dabei möchte ich es unten in der Suche, direkt im Tab haben. Vor Version 88 war das möglich. Warum wurde es entfernt?

Hi, I use a PC under W7.

with FF88, the zone of the activated/unused tabs was above the screen, below the listed tabs bar (like in the snapshot).

With FF89, this zone is now empty (background in blue in the snapshot) and only the active tab appears below the window (on the right down in the snapshot for the current tab).

It makes FF simply unusable ! Need your help to come back to a normal situation : all tabs in the blue bar where they were.

thanks a lot for your help. Regards, Philippe

Please help me get rid of the stupid and ugly Tab bar space on newest Firefox. I hate Tabs and now there is a big space above the address bar for Tabs. I have looked everywhere for a way to turn it off like it has been since Tabs came out. I only want new windows if I want a new window.

If I can't turn that huge space gap off is there any way to go back to what I had before the last update without messing everything up? Why did someone decide to make the browser window smaller and waste that space by making the browser bigger....

Sorry if I sound cranky but, I started using Netscape Navigator 1.0 and every version since and this is the worse thing that has ever been done to a browser... Thank you for any help you can give me!

Hi! With the latest update to Firefox, the tab height is now taking up too much of my vertical screen space and the option to make them compact seems to be gone from where it used to be in the settings. I've tried to search for an extension to fix this, but haven't managed to find one. What do you all suggest I do?

(I don't want to use Chrome. It takes so much RAM that I can't really run both Chrome & Discord at the same time, let alone anything else with it.)

Thank you!

I don't know if I'm the only one who used this feature, but when I opened a new tab I could just drop some copied text in there, go to another tab do something, then go back to that new tab where the text was copied, take the copy once more from the bar and go back to the previous tab. The text in the new tab didn't disappear all the time when new tab was "opened". Currently in version 89.0 this functionality disappeared and when I change from new tab to other tab text from the "search bar" disappear, the funniest thing is this functionality saved me a lot of time because I didn't have to play with any notepad or anything to store copied things. Is there any option to bring it back?

In the previous version when I clicked new tab a window would come up and on the page was recent or heavily used web sites I visited. I could then click on the picture and go directly to that web site, video, etc. In this new version, that is not happening. I have to type in the URL each time for where I want to go. I am a senior citizen and this is frustrating. Is there a way to get this version to do what version 88 did?

My Sessions and Session Boss know I have all my tabs open presently. I can't see the tabs & I can't right click a bookmark and see a 2nd tab open. I had the tabs at the top and just under the bookmarks bar. Now it is just one long blank bar. I disabled and then re-enabled proton, which is the worst upgrade experience ever. I changed to a simple theme, still no tabs. I downloaded the previous version 88, but it will start a new profile. I just want where I was 2 hours ago. I'll attach an image of the left upper screen with the blank tab bar.

Hello, all.

This is not a question but a pointer for those who have successfully been using userChrome.css to put the tabs where they belong, below the Bookmarks bar. :-)

If you used a userChrome.css solution such as that presented in threads like the support article "tabs on bottom release 72.0.1" (full disclosure, that is my solution), then you just need to add to the #TabsToolbar section one line:

top: var(--uc-titlebar-padding,86px);

You can play with the "86px" until you have the tabs where you like them. Depending upon my profile and other CSS options, I have to move that a few pixels up or down to get it looking just right.

I think this happens routinely. Can the Mozilla people prevent the problem in the first place? How can I tell the angst they cause their users? I see others begging for help with this problem.
