first let me make this clear, i'm REALLY not computer savvy.

now i have two laptops i use, the first automatically updated (to 57x i think) now this one i'm on now and unsuccessfully trying to UNSCREW the wonderful changes no one asked for is fighting me.

i was able to move the tabs on the first laptop by creating the userChrome.css file and inserting some code i got off the web.

however on this machine no matter what i do i cannot get the friggin tabs back where they BELONG.

can someone, anyone please give me the exact steps to move the tabs down on firefox 58.0?

ive been all over the web trying to do this and have failed miserably

thanks

The following css code in my userChrome.css file works here in Firefox 58 on a Mac:

Code: Select all
/* Nav bar on top */
#nav-bar {
-moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important; }

/* Personal toolbar in the middle */
#PersonalToolbar {
-moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important; }

/* Tabs below */
#TabsToolbar {
-moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important; }

Eckard, that works. I guess I'm just old and still remember going to the card catalogs in the library where the tabs were on top. They are also on the top in my desk file drawers. :wink:

I'm even older but in browsers I always preferred tabs "on bottom" ;)
