So just updated to Firefox 55 and found that the close button for each tab other than the active one has been removed.

Had to use an extension to fix this:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... -restored/

Is there a native way to enable the close button for tabs to be reinstated without an extension?

I can't reproduce your issue on Fx55, but with this code you can force the close icon to be always visible on all tabs:

Code: Select all
   #TabsToolbar #tabbrowser-tabs .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned]):not([protected]) .tab-close-button {
     visibility: visible !important;
     display: block !important;
   }
   
   #TabsToolbar #tabbrowser-tabs .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned]):not([protected])[faviconized="true"] .tab-close-button {
     visibility: collapse !important;
     display: none !important;
   }


Add it to userChrome.css or userContent.css in your profiles /chrome/ folder (no add-on required) or to a CSS loader add-on like Stylish.
Customize Firefox 57+ UI || Classic Theme Restorer (Fx 29-56) || Classic Toolbar Buttons || CustomizeMyBird

How to use legacy add-ons after Firefox 57 release? Switch to Firefox 52 ESR or move to Waterfox browser.

They are there for me, too.

Perhaps the issue with the OP is that too many tabs were opened up at once? At a certain point, I believe FF does turn off that close button, to make sure that people don't inadvertently close tabs when they mean to select them.

psaulm119, you may be correct.

In my current session, I have roughly 100 tabs.

Thanks Aris, this worked for me!
