I have so many tabs that I would like to display multiple rows. I cannot find an option to do so, but I know that I did this in the past. But I do not remember how I did that. I have tried to find this option in TabMix Plus but no luck. Recently I have been using Tree Style Tabs but it no longer works for me in FF 42. Help me out?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?

I just tested it and you can force Firefox to use multiple tab rows using the Tab Mix Plus addon.

For more information, please read this article from How-To Geek:

Please note that tabs will still shrink to the minimum tab size before starting a new row. To set the minimum tab size, please do the following:

  1. Type about:config in Firefox
  2. Locate the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth string
  3. Change the value to the desired size
  4. Restart Firefox

Note: Setting the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth value higher than the browser.tabs.tabMaxWidth may cause issues. Please ensure that the browser.tabs.tabMaxWidth is greater than or equal to the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth value.

Thanks for the information. Unfortunately, when I try the link I get a completely blank page. Could you check it out and confirm it should work?

Resolved. I finally found the option in Tab Mix that I had somehow overlooked. I'm usually better than that! 8-) Thank you for your help.

Just a little extra - perhaps for a wider audience - to make more room -

Right click on the bookmark, then click on Properties. You can abbreviate the Name right down to nothing. You can also put similar bookmarks into Folders with appropriate names on the Bookmarks Toolbar. Again, right clicking on the Bar will offer New Folder.

Not everyone seems to know that overflow of bookmarks goes down the right side of the page, accessed via the chevrons(double arrowhead).
