Hello, how can I add numbers in order next to the tab titles (for orientation purposes) and include a little tooltip with the page address in the bottom right corner of the browser in Recently Closed Tabs and List all tabs? Do I need to make any changes to about:config?

Thunderbird? I asked about Firefox of course. You need to bring this theme back to the Firefox section.

Hi,
A natural error, as there was really no definitive reference to either.

Off to Firefox Support...

OK. Can technical support solve this issue? Or is it a feature request?

I tried creating a userChrome.css tweak, but it didn't work.

Custom List Number Styling

WebExtensions can't change the menus.

Apparently we need changes in the code itself?

A Mozilla developer would have to add the feature.

We are a user to user forum and are not assocated with Mozilla.

Here is a numbered tabs userChrome.css tweak by Aris.

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

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

#tabbrowser-tabs {
  counter-reset: n_tabs 0;
}
.tabbrowser-tab .tab-content {
  -moz-padding-start: 0px;
}
.tabbrowser-tab .tab-content::before {
  display: -moz-box;
  -moz-padding-end: 8px;
  counter-increment: n_tabs;
  content: counter(n_tabs);
  font-weight: bold !important;
  font-size: 16px !important;
  margin-top: -2px !important;
}

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

Remember to set the toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets preference to true, then restart.

Maybe your userChrome.css tweak is possible.

If you use the Recently Closed Tabs submenu off the classic History menu on the top menu bar -- open using Alt+S -- the "status" message does appear with the URL when you hover a title. Doesn't seem to be true of the newer style of menus.

For the List All Tabs list, an add-on might be needed because the HTML structure of the list doesn't include the URLs (as far as I can tell).

Really. Thank you. At least so. Although, of course, I would like it to work in the new style of the menu.

Thank you. This will not work in the Tor browser, unfortunately. Which I need too.

I could be wrong, but I don't think mozillaZine Firefox Support is Tor browser support.

Maybe the Third Party/Unofficial Builds topic or Tor Project Support?

All interface changes in Firefox are then carried over to the Tor browser, right?

You would have to ask Tor.
