Hi,

I've noticed something strange on Fx57 tab bar: the "tab list arrow" is only visible during customization.

Normal mode:

I confirm this with a fresh profile, with several open tabs.
Do I miss something obvious ?

It appears when the tab bar can't fit all opened tabs and switches to overflow mode with scroll buttons at the left and right end of the tab bar.
Sorry for my poor English.

Ok I see. More than 24 tabs need to be opened on my screen to see this arrow, and even more if browser.tabs.tabMinWidth is set to 50 or less.
Is there a trick to get this arrow visible much earlier, or always visible ?

It is possible to make this arrow always visible using .css tweaks. Try this code:
Code: Select all
@namespace url("https://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
#tabbrowser-tabs ~ #alltabs-button { visibility:visible!important; }

Type about:support in the address bar - Enter - Open folder
Create chrome folder, create text file inside it and rename it to userChrome.css
Open userChrome.css and paste the code above
Restart the browser

I already have userChrome.css and userContent.css, and your proposal works fine !
Thank you.
