How to disable tab scrolling in Firefox 2
One of my biggest peeves with Firefox 2 is how the tab system works with the scroll bar. Prior to version 2, tabs would squish in size to accommodate more.
Being a tab heavy user I found this to be perfectly adequate and I got used to how it works. Enter Firefox 2; instead of resizing the tabs, after a certain amount fill up your tab bar they start to go off screen and are accessible through a tab scroll bar.
Personally, I hate this scroll bar, so here’s how to get rid of it in Firefox:
Disable tab scrolling in Firefox 2
* In the address bar type:
into the Search form
and change the value from 100 to 0
That’s all you have to do, now you won’t have the annoying tab scroll bar!
Gah, I was so glad to finally find someone who agrees with me on this, but unfortunately, this method no longer works. :-(
On Mozilla Firefox 30.0.
Worked for me, tonight. Mozilla Firefox on Mac, most recent update (not sure which it is)
