Recently the V-like icon/button appeared at the right-hand end of the top line of my Firefox windows. This Tab Search could be invaluable to some, but I have no need for it. If I start to get too many tabs I just use another window. However, I click on it constantly when I intend to minimize the window. I have been clicking on the - icon/button in EVERY WINDOWS APPLICATION since Windows began, and as it has ALWAYS been the LEFT-MOST item in the UPPER RIGHT CORNER I haven't had to think about it in decades. But now it isn't the left-most, that is now tab search.

Please, please, PLEASE provide a configuration option to remove Tab Search from the top line.

Thanks!

You have to provide a screenshot of the error Browser tab issue your having so others can see what you referring to if they have this on theirs or not.

Okay, here is an image. Based on my usage of Firefox since the Tab Search icon was added to the top line, it is too close to the standard Windows minimize icon. Since this is driving me nuts, AND I do not need the Tab Search feature, I ask that an OPTION be added to REMOVE the Tab Search icon from that location. Let everyone choose to have it, or not.

Thanks again.

Note that this will still makes the "List all tabs" (Tab Manager) button visible if you open a lot of tabs and the scroll buttons appear like it behaved before.
