Multi-row tabs?

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Ross M. Greenberg, Jun 10, 2006.

  1. I have more tabs, they can comfortably fit across one row in Firefox. How
    do I split those tabs into more than one row?

  2. Is FF incapable of this?

    Try putting this into your userChrome.css -

    /* Multiple lines of tabs */
    tabbrowser tabs > hbox { display: block; }
    tabbrowser tab, tabbrowser .tab-icon, tabbrowser .tab-text { display:
    inline; }
    tabbrowser tab { min-width: 151px; }

    You can adjust the width of the tabs by changing the number on the last

  4. This makes good sense -- except I have no userChrome.css on this (or any
    other!) machine....

    Then create it. The reason you don't have it is because its a user
    created file. Open a Texted based Editor [such as NotePad if using
    windows]. Copy the script above, and paste it into the editor. Save
    the file as userchrome.css. Save it as text formating, and save the
    file to your Chrome Directory within your profile.

  6. I created it, called it userChrome.css, stuck it in
    ...../defaults/chrome/... and no difference!


    Nogo, alas.

    If it didn't work, then you did something wrong. Did you place the
    file with in your profile? And I'm not talking about the profile that
    is located in the program directory.

    To find your profile, you can read this:

    But, if you're using windows then you must read this first:

  8. It's there. I replaced the width with 101, exited and restarted FF. No diff.

  9. And I tried "75", too. No diff.

  10. The "Tab Mix Plus" extension allows you to set up multiple romws of
    tabs in Firefox.

  15. BTW, John, Tab Mix Plus just doesn't do it for me! IE7 does tabbing
    correctly as does NetCaptor. FF may, too. but it sure isn't as easy as IE7
    or NC!

  16. Still no luck on trying to get FF to have multi-row tabs -- anhd the
    userchrome stuff suggested still is not working.

    Any suggestions?

    If you use any extensions that affect tabs, try disabling them.

    Be sure the userChrome.css file is in your FF profile's chrome folder.
