Why have the left and right tab scroll buttons seemingly been removed in the latest version?

Hi

I've just installed the latest version of Firefox (19.0) and have discovered that the left and right tab scroll buttons (as illustrated here: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/scroll-through-your-tabs-quickly) are no longer present. Nor is the drop-down arrow button which shows you the list of currently open tabs. Furthermore, there does not seem be any option available to turn these features on. Is this a planned design change? How can I restore these features?

Many Thanks

Marc

It is possible that the screen is too wide or too high and that the scroll bars fall off.

  • Use Restore or Maximize in the right-click context menu of the Taskbar icon to set focus to the Firefox application if you do not see the Firefox window.
  • Open the system menu of that Firefox window via Alt+Space and see if you can move and resize that window (use the keyboard cursor keys).

If that works then first close all other open Firefox windows and then close Firefox via "File > Exit/Quit" to save that setting.

If the above didn't help then see:
