Is there anyway to make this tile dissapear? it only works if my first tab is the add - on tab.

See this

this is how my firefox looks now.

It would be great if the tabs started where the chrome starts, without that gap.

You see, this is not actually a problem, it's more of a nuisance.

Anyways, I've managed to solve it by using some CSS magic!

For anyone experiencing such odd issues, just add

padding-left: 2px !important;

to your userChrome.css file, which you have to manually create in the chrome folder.

AliceWyman, I kindly thank you for your time.

Cheers!

I looked at the image you posted and never saw Firefox look like that. How do you access the Menu Bar or Firefox button? See Display the Firefox button menu instead of the menu toolbar

What version of Windows are you using, a preview of Windows 8? Your User Agent shows Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; Win64; x64; rv:10.0.2) Gecko/20120219 Firefox/10.0.2

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your interest to part take into this.

Currently, I'm using the official 10.0.2 64 bit version of Waterfox, but I've seen this issue happen on pretty much all Firefox versions (Nightlies, Betas and official releases).

The menu is to the right (the black Firefox button, made available through the Movable Firefox button add - on). The UI is made to look that way using Stratiform.

This issue does not appear when I place the Add - Ons tab as first, possibly because the Add - Ons tab does not have the location bar? Just guessing here.

As this image shows, I would very much like it if my Firefox behaved like this. Again reiterating, if it is even possible. I'm thinking that it would require a certain amount of CSS coding and editing the userChrome.css file, perhaps.

And, for your last query, I'm currently using the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, which was launched yesterday.

I don't have any experience with 64-bit Waterfox or Windows 8 but if you are seeing the problem in all Firefox versions then you could start with Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems, either by restarting in Firefox Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode or by disabling all extensions and themes in the Add-ons Manager and restarting. If the problem goes away it was caused by an add-on.
