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.

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.

Hello,

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 : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1403668

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

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!!

Yes, especially about Nightly, last update ruined it again, seems I lost weeks on this Tabs below address bar or Tabs on the bottom, miserable subjects! This is fight with False user-friendly devs for 8 years at least! Shame on Mozilla!

Here is the solution perfectly working for Firefox and f nightly (so far till next Dev find idea of ruining it)

Quite simple twix you may activate in userChrome.css together with all needed userConfig

...die Option geben "die" uns nicht seit 5-6 Jahren

"They" haven't given us the option for 5-6 years

@paufg2000  yes, they will never give !

That's the way such false open projects work now, but use my solution (not my, but I linked you guys to)

Been using Mozilla since the 90's (ran a 4-line VBBS system in 1993, one of the hottest in town, ha!) and never seen such a non-intuitive UI decision as removing a user's choice to have tabs they're frequently clicking-between CLOSEST to where they're actually clicking.  Simply dumbfounding this is not an option.

tabs BELOW the bookmarks tool bar (PLEASE).

Tab bar position rage

Hi! I just jumped through all the hoops to register on this forum, with the singular purpose of venting the fact that I will never, ever switch back to Firefox if I can't have my tab bar the only effing place it belongs, below the address bar, above the content.

Thank you. ❤️

Tabs on bottom

The worst idea ever is not having an option to put tabs on bottom.. under the bookmarks bar.. I will have to go to a different browser now, so disappointing. Goodbye all..
