The dot goes back and forth and is extremely annoying. Can this be disabled somewhere? In about:config perhaps? I am poking around in there and see a few candidates but thought I'd check here first. I have all other animations disabled. I really, REALLY don't like to see moving thingies in a text environment. Thanks.

Try this:

Code: Select all
/* Firefox userChrome.css */

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

.tab-throbber { visibility: hidden !important; }

http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css

@morat . . . Thank you! I should have thought of UserChrome. Mine is already substantial. Your suggestion neuters the throbber but the tab text still jumps around a bit. Guess I'll try a negative LH margin or width: 0 on the throbber. May take a little fussing to get it right.

*edit* Negative margin worked. Now no movement on the tabs. :mrgreen:

(Along the same lines - because I most often do not see the "dots":
