From the previous post on Crowdicity:

I would like to see vertical tabs baked in. MS Edge now has it out of the box!

I currently use addons for this - but there's no way to disable the top tab bar, which duplicates the tabs and takes up space.

Vertical tabs (with top bar disabled) would free up more space for web content, which is (usually) vertical. Most screens are widescreen (RIP ThinkPad 4:3 ratios), so the less browser UI at the top/bottom, the more content we can view.

@BloodAngel_sanYou can actually enable the sidebar right now, but there aren't many customization options available right now. But if you want to enable it, you can by going to "about:config" and adding "sidebar.revamp". Now just set it to "true" and restart your browser. There is another thread on here that mentions improvements to the sidebar: https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/discussions/improvements-to-the-firefox-sidebar-are-on-the-way/td-p/5...
