I am using Mozilla Firefox 18.0. on a Windows 7 computer. The Mozilla page is really inefficiently set up. I have a screen shot but there doesn't seem to be any way to post it in this forum. [From help:You now have a screenshot that you can add to your forum question by clicking the Browse button in the Post a Reply box. However, no 'browse' button on this page. :-(] I will describe, line-by-line, what I see on my screen for this page:
[Mozilla logo]Ask a Question|Mozilla Support-Mozilla Firefox File Edit View History Bookmarks Tool Help [A line with the current URL on the left side and a search bar on the right side] A blank blue line [Headings for each of the tabs I currently have open]
I don't need the first line or the fourth line. How do I remove them? If you know how to add a screen shot, let me know.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for your reply. I have read through each of those links but still have not found the answer to my question. Could you be more specific as to how to remove the first and fourth lines that are displayed in my screen shot?
You can't remove the first title bar line that is part of the window frame unless you would hide the menu bar to get the orange Firefox button.
You can select which toolbars to show via View > Toolbars of Firefox > Options if the menu bar is hidden.
Note that current Firefox versions only show the "Tabs on Top" menu entry in the "View > Toolbars" and "Firefox > Options" menu and in toolbar context menus if the tabs aren't in the default position on top.
If the tabs are on top and the menu entry isn't available and you want to move the tabs below the navigation toolbar then you need to flip the browser.tabs.onTop pref to false on the about:config page.
Okay, I understand from your reply that I can't get rid of the top line (even though it is, IMHO, completely superfluous).
I didn't quite understand this:
you need to flip the browser.tabs.onTop pref to false on the about:config page.
Could you be more specific as to how I do this? Will that remove the blank fourth line?
Type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the "Enter" key to open the about:config page, just like you open a website by typing the URL in the location bar.
Use the Search bar at the top of the about:config page to locate preferences more easily (in this case: browser.tabs.onTop)
You can toggle a Boolean pref (i.e values true or false) with a double click on the related line.
Well, that worked to get my tabs on top, which I like better. Now, if I could only figure out how to reduce the size of that blank area under the address bar (or better yet, eliminate it completely). Screen shot attached. That's expensive real estate on my screen going to waste! :-)
Thanks for your help.
