morat, I ran the test you suggested. Results are that after the tabs overflow, there are no scroll arrow buttons or tab scroll bar of any kind. I have no access to earlier tabs until I close the later ones. As a practical matter, it makes no difference to me since I never open that many tabs at once (ever). However, I'll try dickvl's code later to see what difference it makes.

The following style works for me with both the tab bar and menu popup.

Code: Select all
toolbarbutton.menupopup-scrollbutton.scrollbutton-down {
  display: none !important;
scrollbox[part="scrollbox"] {
  overflow-y: auto !important;

Morat's earlier Bookmarks Scroll Bar code was a great start but for me a Rt Clk to "Close tabs to the right" chopped off "the right"; I just knew & used its function by position.

This New dickvl 2-line code allows the Scroll bar, "Close tabs to the Right", & New Tab + -- although I'll never understand HOW!
Thanks again to Both of you.

OOPS, with Morat's code above, I TOO, can make all the Tabs I want & retain the Close X, although I never need it. Close tabs to the Right Still Shows all the words!!
