Status: Exploring more

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.

Once a while I check whether I can finally use Firefox: I look for "Firefox vertical tabs" and whether there is anything that at least resembles what Edge has. I then see the "use add-ons" answers and forget about Firefox for the next couple of months. Bummer

I created an account here just to please ask for this. I don't know how long can it be until we get an update or something. It can't be possible that firefox is getting so much behind with respect with any other browsers.

here is a temporary userChrome.css configuration for hide top tab bar ,i use this with extension tab stash or tree tab in windows and debian at least one years. hope this can be some help in days waiting for native vertical tab .

It's not a major showstopper for my organization. But I will say that it is pushing back a more mass deployment of Firefox. I'm eagerly waiting for the approval and deployment of this feature.

Making moves

Doesn't need to be identical to Microsoft's browser (shoddy implementation of all of its features to be honest) just better than that crappy Tree Styled Tabs extension (that thing needs some serious UX refactoring and better I/O responsiveness) or the way Floorp does it (Firefox fork. Used to be better but they wrecked it to focus on a useless toolbar that wraps history and bookmark management into the sidebar uselessly). Hopefully a native vertical tabs would also turn off the tab bar, which become redundant and is pretty useless as is (except for the all-tabs button, which thanks for adding as its awesome)

As a Sidebery user, having access to the minimum practical functionality for this in a native manner would be nice. The most important IMO being that it would remove the need for userChrome modifications to hide the tab bar, since it would become direction-aware.

I would love to see this too. Extensionsa re not a proper solution even if they are good.

Why has this not been implemented yet? With so many ultra wide users, this should be a no brainer

I'll donate even more when this becomes implemented!

Love ya'll anyway

If FF doesn't get native vertical tabs, how can this not happen? My fav default browser since Netscape days - what a way to go!
