Official Firefox 2.0 Thread

FrostedFlames says:

I figure we can use this thread to help each other figure out all the tweaks and everything for the newest version of firefox.

As posted before TinyMenu is the current replacement for CompactMenu, available here:

Also, in regards to the new close buttons on each tab:

* Click the about:config button (if about:config extension is installed) or open a new tab and type about:config in the address bar and press enter
* In the filter field type browser.tabs.closeButtons
* Double-click on the entry and enter the corresponding number below:
0 ~ Display a close button on the active tab only
1 ~ Display a close button on each tab (default)
2 ~ Dont display any close buttons
3 ~ Display a single close button at the end of the tab bar (Firefox 1.x behavior)
* Click OK
* Close the about:config editor or tab

(source: )


Now here is what I am still wanting to figure out:

- How to remove the "go" button.
- How to remove the arrow button at the end of the tabs bar, that lets you scroll through the opened tabs.

Actually I found how to remove the "go" button, too. Its actually extremely simple.

1. Open a new tab and type about:config in the address bar OR if you are using the about:config extension, click the about:config button
2. In the filter box type (or paste) browser.urlbar.hideGoButton
3. The default settings is FALSE double click anywhere on the entry to change it to TRUE
4. Changes are effective immediately

Cool, no more silly, redundant 'Go' button... now, how about the 'Search' text following the Google text-box?

Xyphur: I don't even use the search box. :P I use a much more efficient method of searching.

1. Go to google.com or whatever
2. Right click the search box and click "Add a keyword for this search..."
3. Name it whatever you want, and the keyword will be whatever you want.
4. To use, type "YOUKEYWORD searchterm" in the addressbar.

:D

i actually noticed that in firefox 2.0 the address bar actually works as a search bar for most cases...like say you type a sentence in the address bar it returns results in a google search

Well, yeah, but if you have to do a one-word search it'll just do I'm Feeling Lucky. :P

Why update when you're removing everything new right away? Seems kind of pointless to me. :/

Because the GUI isn't the only thing that changed.

Quanoo: the new version of firefox is more than just 2 simple changes in the GUI...

@ FrostedFlames
To remove the drop down menu on tab bar.

Put this in your userChrome.css

/* Disable "List all Tabs" Button */
.tabs-alltabs-button {
display: none !important;
}

/* Disable Container box for "List all Tabs" Button */
.tabs-alltabs-box {
display: none !important;
}

the userChrome.css edit UnsightlyEvil mentioned above made the "list all tabs" button disappear, but it left a gap where it used to be.
any solution to this?

@FF
It definitely works, are you sure you are doing it correctly?

You should create a userChrome.css (or rename the example) in the profiles//*//chrome directory, and just copy and paste that in to the document. Be sure to restart Firefox.

Yep, thats exactly what I did and it didnt work.

the userchrome.css edit worked fine for me.
Did anyone got rid of the magnifying lens in the search field instead? It's quite annoying to me...
Moreover, in FF1.5 when clicking on the loading animation above the search box redirected you to mozilla web site while now it seems to do nothing!

I am having trouble changing settings in Firefox 2.0 so that the Tab bar does not always appear even when only one tab is open. I know there is a setting in Tools-Options-Tabs where you can uncheck "Always Show the Tab Bar" and I *do* uncheck it, but it's only good for my current browser session. (That is, as soon as I restart FF, I get the tab bar showing again.) Going to about:config and messing with TabBar settings doesn't seem to help either. Anybody have any ideas on this, or am I the only one encountering this bug?

UPDATE: It turns out that the PaNIC extension was causing the problem for some reason (extension can be found at if anyone is interested.)

While I thought this was kind of a cute extension, it's not one I need, since I only use FF at home, so I just uninstalled it and everything is fine now...when I uncheck the "Always Show the Tab Bar" box, it stays unchecked now.

I actually once almost got fired for installing it on computers at work, but that's another story (and thankfully, I left that job for a better one earlier this year.)

aww your boss needs to loosen up :D
I think my friend installed like counter-strike to every computer in his office.
that is.. because the boss plays it too XD
and maybe because its a production house / small design company.
no project = nothing to do = fragging

This will not only remove the tab bar dropdown menu, but also remove the space left behind:

.tabs-alltabs-stack {
display: none !important;

I cannot get these userChrome tweaks to work.

Am I in the right folder?

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile\chrome\userChrome.css

No, your userChrome.css must be in the following folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\RANDOM_NUMBER\chrome

Link to the theme called "winestripe". It's basically the FF1.5 theme that mimics your visual style's tabs instead of those stupid ones mozilla put in.

Just thought a few people here might want this.
