userstyles.org - Tabs, Enlarge list-all-tabs button (DM*)

Enlarging the tabs drop-down button and making it standout was created by request as a concept. Because of the smaller icon images in the list-all-tabs and close-button this style has been very useful to me as well. One can easily customize the background color.

Notes

Depends on color of your toolbars whether you would find it useful or not, my toolbars have a light background but someone with darker blue background and very dark blue drop-down arrow would have a very hard time seeing this button so have seen why it was requested.

The icons on the list-all-tabs button and the close button on far right are both too small, the added background color helps.

Having a list-all-tabs button that stands out from tab favicons and the tabs close button has been useful on smaller screens as well. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Netbooks

Of possible interest Bug 349196, and Firefox 2 end tab close button fix [bug 349196] (1063) if tweaking of close button is wanted.


Netbook and laptop users (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Netbooks) are most helped by this style and might want to include the following change as well.

Potential problem: don't know when fix to make tabs bar and buttons be interchangeable with/upon other toolbars but if names get changed see https://bug457187.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=441855 (I think we're past such problems now).

The following was a suggestion, but it can be done with about:config instead by setting browser.identity.ssl_domain_display to 0

/* Remove unimportant Location Bar Icon Text
-- click on the favicon to see information
-- http://eriwen.com/firefox/use-the-dom-inspector/ */
#identity-icon-label { display: none !important; }

/* highlight background of far right close tab button [Fx4 only shows on hover]*/
.close-button.tabs-closebutton
{ visibility: visible !important;background-color:#FF8888 !important;}

Updates: created 2009-06-07
2010-05-06 toolbarbutton-icon instead of dropmarker-icon for Fx 3.6
2011-04-13 removed height:14px to work Fx 4.0 with Tabs Bar Minimal Size
2012-07-20 make visible: delete tab after Fx 4.0, list tabs after Fx 12.0 tied it to scrolling tabs
