I want my TABS below the addres bar

I want my TABS below the addres bar, there is no option for "tabs on top" anymore and I simply want them below the address bar. My y580 still has the tabs below but my asus g75vw has the tabs on top and the tabs on top" option is not there. WHat can I do?

Re: I want my TABS below the addres bar

for the moment you still can manually change that behaviour - enter about:config into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up), search for the preference named browser.tabs.onTop & toggle it to false by double-clicking it. however this setting might lose its effect in a future version of the browser, for more information also see www.ghacks.net/2012/07/26/mozilla-tabs-on-bottom-feature-needs-to-go/

Current Firefox versions only show the "Tabs on Top" menu entry in the "View > Toolbars" menu and in 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 like posted above.

Shame on you Mozilla for taking away our ability to EASILY customize our browser like we used to be able to. I always loved Firefox, but you're making me think I will have to go to Google. Wise up!

And Google Chrome even gives you a choice of where the tabstrip is located?

There is also a setting, "browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar". Does that make the tabs appear below the title bar if it is false, rather than covering the title?

Re: I want my TABS below the addres bar

The browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar pref applies to having the window size set to "Maximize".
If the window is maximized then on the Windows platform the tab bar appears in the title bar if the Tab bar is on top.
It doesn't have effect when the window isn't maximized because in that case the tab bar isn't in the title bar.

Thank you! going to about: config & making that one change fixed it. I'm all for progress, but I really wish mozilla would stop fixing things that aren't broken and changing locations of things that makes it hard to do simple things like change cookie settings, etc.
