I used to use the add-on Tab Wheel Scroll prior to Firefox 57, but that is now broken and won't be fixed.
Is there any way to get tabs to scroll with the mouse wheel in Firefox 57+?

By the way... Vivaldi does this natively.

not possible for now. there exists a userchrome script but i did not managed it to work, in fact it made my firefox worse and scrolling seems like carousel. those scripts are nice but at least firefox is not ready and webextension api is also not ready - stay tuned.

btw vivaldi does not matter here, this is a firefox forum.

It will be possible to scroll tabs with the mouse wheel after toolbar API lands. It is on the roadmap.

I'm totally confused. Is the OP and Brummelchen saying that they are using FF 57? As far as I know, 56 is the latest version and Tab Wheel Scrolling works for me.

well, you are using tabmix plus or similar as legacy extension? firefox 56 has no native tab scrolling. and v57 is not ready yet as GHM113 wrote.

I'm using Tab Wheel Scrolling. It says Legacy in the Add-ons Manager next to it.

All I am saying is that it is a built-in feature in Vivaldi, and I believe it should also be in Firefox.
No need for half smart remarks.

Toolbar API is on the roadmap, that means this feature is planned and has an internal release date. Source:

i hope this would remove some rants about losing the multi-bookmarkrow. when webextensions could create toolbars they can also insert content (firefox wont do that)

Yeah, toolbar API is very useful, download managers will benefit from it as well.

Creating an entire tab toolbar from scratch sounds like overkill to implement tab scrolling only... That would also be incompatible with all other tab tweaks. But it would be great for Tab Mix Plus :)

FWIW: tab scrolling on the actual tab toolbar is blocked by this bug, which got WONTFIXed.

not really - from Andy - was after Tim:
Priority: -- P5
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1226546

P5 means long time to wait.
in your link Andy did not write that id is wontfix, he only linked to a ML to observe development.
