Tabs are now at the bottom - how do I get them to the top (under the menu bar)?
The only tab that's shown is the currently active tab - can't I have access to more than one tab at a time?

If you mean that all your tabs are stacking up at the very bottom of the browser (on the content area), this can be caused by old userChrome.css code to move tabs below the other toolbars that needs fixed for Firefox 89+.

impet ...
Thanks for the link.

That link and its offshoot links provide a great deal of discussion regarding tabs & css files. I found two posts with css coding that might address my problem ... assuming they work properly. One even restores the control panel at the bottom of the screen ( I won't use it until more knowledgeable users try it first.

jscher ...
If they're stacked, they're all stacked behind one another because I see only one tab and that's for the currently open window. I do have a user Chrome.css that I copied into the profile in January 2020 that deals with tabs. That's probably what you're talking about.

I disabled (renamed) it and my tabs reappeared at the top of the window (go figure), but between my menu bar and address bar. I prefer it be below the address bar, but I can live with that for now.

Thanks to both of you for responding so quickly to my request.
