Status: New idea

I have had problems with the latest version of Safari on my Mac and am looking for another browser. Firefox seems like the best choice so far but it has one feature I cannot get used to and may ultimately prevent me from using it. That feature is the position of the tabs at the top, above the website address. Please give us the option of putting the tabs where they belong, BELOW the URL address bar and directly above the webpages.

Hello it's is still so difficult to place these tabs under the search bar. Especially when you know nothing about the script and css file... If a "little genius" among you could recreate a little menu inside tools or an add on? or a little script? which again appears a menu as simple as in the old version 4.

It would become without EXAGGERATING the HERO of Millions of firefox user and I don’t think exaggerate about this

ja und? das sehe ich selber; denn alle haben das gleiche Problem oder Wunsch. Aber es passiert nichts ! ! !

Yes and? I see that myself; because everyone has the same problem or desire. But nothing happens! !

You broke it again. Why isn't there an option to put the tabs below the address bar above the tabs?!?! It used to be that you could do that with a css file in the Chrome folder but now even that doesn't work. Why isn't this something that can be done with a simple click? WTF is going on?


Your rules need to be updated for Firefox 108. For help, see r/FirefoxCSS on Reddit.

As for bringing it back to Firefox, the bars were flipped in Firefox 4 and the preference to revert the change was removed in Firefox 29. Considering how long it has been, I wouldn't hold your breath. But you could check over on the "Ideas" section and vote for this if someone has submitted it.

I Agree let USERS decide where the Address Bar goes my recent update to ver 109 Win 10 64 bit put in the the Toolbar window as opposed to between the Menu Bar and the Tabs. It irritates me so much I had to complete my registration in order to VENT. I have been a Firefox user since it originally came into being.... Netscape before that... In all these years you've never done anything that pisses me off more as there were usually a work around. I thought the days of software companies deciding how we the users would like things. Maybe you like it this way... Maybe I don't... its a great product don't get me wrong!! I have contributed $$ in the past as I believe most regular users should acknowledge what a  great program it is. I think it is.... at least on Windows. SO lease fix this in the next update... so annoying as I have a lot of bookmark menus on my tool bar and the address/search window their just messes it up by its place and ends up hiding them behind the >>

I would like to have an option for placing the tabs under the address bar, is it an option someone would be interested too?

Bring back the tabs bar BELOW the address and bookmaks bars.


Yes, indeed, another occurrence of this everlasting request.

Use addons : no, they broke one after the others in the last 10 years they were introduced after this functionality was not built in anymore.

Use userchrome.css : I also tried, but no, I need to cross fingers, toes, and whatever I can after each update. v109 was such a nighmare that I removed my complete userchrome.css.

So, I don't want to see the word 'userchrome.css' or 'addon' at all in any of the answers that might be provided.

The question is: when will it be finally possible to have an option in the settings so the user can choose to have the tabs bar BELOW the bookmarks bar. After so many years and so many requests from so many people, how is it possible we have never been heard ?

I had a very interesting discussion with one of you in the support forum, it's not very long, I really encourage you to read it before answering :

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

 Still waiting for the search bar to be separate from Tabs I prefer the way it was, Change it or give us the option

You're competition is trying to gain users by offering these other "options" You have dedicated users that like the options we previously had. Tabs and Search windows should be separate toolbars LIKE IT USED TO BE! with the addons on theright of the search window. You're sending users to you're competion!!
