Re: How do I disable scrolling tabs in Firefox 17?

Do you mean by setting a lower minimum width for the tabs to make more tabs fit on the tab bar before scroll buttons appear?

The Custom Tab Width extension adds this CSS rule and adjust the settings from the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth and browser.tabs.tabMaxWidth prefs.

Add this code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line if you do not want to use the extension.


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

.tabbrowser-tab[fadein]:not([pinned]) { min-width: 100px !important; max-width: 250px !important; }
