Hi all,

I don't want those scroll arrows when I have more than 10(?) tabs open.. I want them all on one screen.. anyone know a way around this..?
Or can I at least increase the amount of tabs that are shown before the scroll arrowa are displayed?

The file
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\firefox.js
assuming windoze.

On line 254 you see this:
pref("browser.tabs.tabMinWidth", 100);

Decrease the number
pref("browser.tabs.tabMinWidth", 50);

You get more tabs before that damn annoying scroll starts.

Ps mess around at you own peril. But worked for me. Thanks for posting and making me finally fix something that annoyed ;)

Or, without going out of the browser, type "about:config" into the address bar, filter on "tabs" and you'll see the previously mentioned setting in the list. Double click and alter.
