How can I get a border around inactive tabs?

I updated firefox and it's now hard to tell when one tab ends and another begins when you have multiple inactive tabs next to each other, which is a major annoyance.

The way to solve this would be to have the inactive tabs have a border around them like the active tab, have them have a different background color from the toolbar, or otherwise have some kind of separator between them. I saw another answer that gave a temporary solution, but the same answer said the solution was going to stop working in a future update. Is there a permanent solution?

This is a suggestion not a solution but you could try a tabs sidebar extension for vertical tabs if you use a lot of tabs in a single window and hide the horizontal tab bar in userChrome.css. There it might be easier to see where the tabs start and end.
