The list all tabs button is missing

This button just went missing all of a sudden. I now have only one tab group, and I can't reach any of the other 3 groups I had before this happened.

I tried closing and restarting Firefox, which didn't help. I tried restoring the Profile from last week. This worked at first, but then I clicked the "list all tabs" button, went to another tab group, and BINGO - lost the "list all tabs" button again!

This is extremely annoying. I am now using a restored Profile, but I cannot click the "list all tabs" button any more without losing all the tabs but the ones in the tab group I go to. So I effectively don't have tab groups any more!

Re: The list all tabs button is missing

hello, the list all tabs button will only be displayed when you have many tabs open, so that not all of them fit into the space on the tab strip.

in order to switch to the tab-panorama view where you can change tab groups, you can either Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars & place the tab groups-button anywhere on the interface or use the keyboard shortcut ctrl+shift+E.

You hit the nail on the head, philipp. I never would have solved the problem without your help. I don't know where the keyboard shortcut is mentioned, but it works fine. And I didn't notice the tab-groups button listed in the customization list. Thanks!

Re: The list all tabs button is missing

you're welcome. the tab groups button should be accessible in the customization panel when you scroll down a bit (see screenshot)...

Re: The list all tabs button is missing

You can have the list all tabs button always visible with code in userChrome.css.

Add code to the userChrome.css file below the default @namespace line.

The customization files userChrome.css (interface) and userContent.css (websites) are located in the chrome folder in the Firefox profile folder.

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

#tabbrowser-tabs ~ #alltabs-button {visibility:visible!important}
