Firefox 2.0: Disable Tab Scrolling

Posted October 20, 2006 by MickeyMouse in Mozilla Firefox

When you open up numerous tabs in the new version of FireFox, arrows form on each side of the tab strip to allow you to scroll to show more tabs. You can disable this by editing the FireFox configuration.

If you like to keep shrinking your tabs as you did with the pervious version of FireFox, just disable the new scroll feature. Here is how to do it.

1. Open Firefox 2.0.
2. In the address bar, enter the following: about:config.
3. Double-click on browser.tabs.tabMinWidth, and change the value to 0.
