Why can't Quantum's tabs have X buttons like all other software?!?!?

It seems that new Firefox (quantum) is stubbornly not providing X buttons on Tabs. Is this an internal political squabble? I'm coping without add-ons, except for this. Why must I click a mouse wheel to close Tabs!!!!???? WHY?!?! WTF!!! Why is there not an X button option in Options under Tabs? Why do they disappear in the first place? That's just inconsistent!!

I use many applications that have tabs and every one has X buttons. So know I must stop and think: do I use the middle mouse button to close tabs in this software? Or do I click the X button?! How can this be an oversight? Are you ***ing with users or not? I want to know.

Why are there 40 add-ons to put a CLose Tab button in the Toolbar, and not 1 (single) add-on to put the X button in the Tabs themselves? Why are all of the past about:config options killed? Why is this so important? I want to know. You finally got me to make an account with Mozilla. Are you happy now? WTF??? (All software puts X buttons in tabs. Even Firefox does! Seriously, WTF.)

If I can't convince you that asking customers to set up a custom style rule (styles are for webpages, not UI elements, especially not tabs) makes less sense than putting a checkbox in the Options page STAT, well you're just contributing to worldwide insanity. Sorry. (The problem definitely is Mozilla's decision to tie add-on developers hands of late. But really Mozilla should accept responsibility for core usability issues instead of relying on add-on developers to solve its userbase's problems.)

Mick, I just want to make sure you're aware of where you are posting. This isn't a place where anyone is trying to convince anyone of anything. It's a support forum. It's a place for Firefox users to help each other in their use of Firefox.

If you're trying to give feedback, I think jscher2000 provided links to help. Was there something else you wanted from this thread?

Support can come in the form of improving the product. I did not come here with any illusion that the problem will be solved any other way than to reach an audience that cares about Firefox's users and communicate this usability crime to developers (whoever the mad people that are keeping add-on developers from solving this problem in Quantum/web-extensions) in house at Mozilla.

P.S. I don't want to solve this for myself, with a user stylesheet. I want to fix Firefox, so people do not have to live with this nightmare situation. A support community should have people's welfare at heart.

EDITED: Believe me, I've waited a long time for this to solve itself. I don't take stands like this lightly or for personal reasons. I'm really disgusted with Mozilla's performance in this regard, and it seems completely senseless. Defend it. Try to.

No problem. I don't think there is anything more to be done in this thread, as jscher2000's answer points you to how to contact people who have the power to improve the product.

Because people might start using this thread for their own feedback or just to argue opinions about Firefox development, I'm going to lock it.
