Make Efficient Use of Tab Bar Space by Customizing Tab Width in Firefox

By Akemi Iwaya on February 23rd, 2011

Does your Tab Bar fill up too quickly while browsing with Firefox? Then get ready to make efficient use of Tab Bar space and reduce the amount of tab scrolling with the Custom Tab Width extension for Firefox.

The default settings for the extension are 100/250 and we set ours for 50/100. As you can see in the screenshot above our tabs took up a lot less room with just one quick adjustment.

Simply choose the desired minimum and maximum widths, click OK, and enjoy the extra room on the Tab Bar!

Note: Works with Firefox 4.0b3 – 4.0.*
