Resize the window ;-).
Or you can decrease the size of the maximum width of a tab.

There's a number of CSS tweaks in this post written by the Classic Theme Restorer developer whereby he's converted his coding into a UserChrome.css file. But he mentions stability issues arising from attempting to create custom tab widths. See the section near the bottom called Not properly working using CSS tweaks

"take firefox as it is otherwise you ever run in trouble like this"

Right, the American way. Never try to make something work better. Just go along to get along. Etc.

Use the add-on Tab Mix Plus and it gives you lots of options about tabs. You can set the minimum and maximum width, for example. It will not work with the latest version of FF but then v. 57 has a lot of other issues. I'm running v. 56.0.2 and I will stay there until I learn that a later version will work properly for me.

take a query on her posts then you will get my intention about - no one else has so many culprits i such short time - and only about tabs. wrong answer.
firefox as it is is not perfect - no doubt - but screwing this without any basic knowledge is wrong and not recommended.
i also use userchrome styles - but those are verified (Aris CTR) and thus safe. in the past i had a lot of css tweaks for this and that - but i dont miss them now.

Suze - go back to v56 if you dare. its ok when users try to get along with firefox Quantum (since v57) but its the wrong way "i screw it first, then work".
