Firefox 57 Tabs On Bottom Easy Solution

Post by DougGuy »

Create a folder named chrome (in lower case) in the user/.mozilla/firefox/whatever.default/ directory and drop the userChrome.css file into it and restart Firefox. Tabs should be on bottom now. Thanks to glebihan for the help!

Here are the contents of the userChrome.css file I used:

Code: Select all

/* Contents of ~/.mozilla/firefox/whatever.default/chrome/userChrome.css */

/* Tab bar below Navigation & Bookmarks Toolbars 
   For best results, show Title Bar or Menu Bar */
#nav-bar { /* main toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important;
  border-top-width: 0 !important; 
}
#PersonalToolbar { /* bookmarks toolbar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}
#TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
  -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
}

That is good information. My question is how did you know to do this and where are all of these userChrome options and variables documented? I can see this being very useful.
