- Always show the tabs bar

(No screenshot available)
This style provides the ability to show the Tabs Bar in Full Screen mode.

One of my favorite extensions is "Auto Hide" which allows one a choice of hiding or displaying individual toolbars and status bar when in Full Screen Mode (F11), or showing a Firefox window without toolbars (Shift+F11).

Firefox itself provides Full Screen mode (F11) and in Firefox 3.6 also Firefox Window without toolbars (Shift+F11)

As it turns out the only toolbar I have to see when in full screen mode is the Tabs Bar. I can use Ctrl+L to enter a url and I can use Ctrl+K to enter a search, or move the cursor through the top when in Full Screen mode to see all my visible toolbars with or without the "Auto Hide" extension.

To use this style, install Firefox and Stylish. If you already have Stylish, make sure this site is allowed to run JavaScript.

This style was actually created to provide additional information for a MozillaZine page on Netbooks --

This style will not conflict with styling changes made to toolbars by my other styles, many of which reduce the height of toolbars to show more browsing area. Full Screen mode (F11) hides all toolbars, this style makes the Tabs bar always visible.

Some other styles that would make tabs bar always visible or hide them are Tab bar always visible (18888 would change height of toolbars), tabbar autohide for FF2 (1262).

Pictures are not included, because they would be more confusing than helpful. This extension is to make tabs show up in Full Screen mode without making additional styling changes to tabs. So I won't show you my tab styling changes here but you can see my own styling changes for tabs in Tabs Bar Minimal Size (9043), and Tab Color Underscoring active/read/unread (Fx3.6 ) (24728).
