Remove all "Close Tabs" buttons from Firefox 2.0

More fun with about:config

Here's the key name you want to find: "browser.tabs.closeButtons" and you want to set it to "2" if you want to kill all the close buttons. If you set it to "0", you will find that only the active tab has the close button.

For me, my close button is the MIDDLE MOUSE BUTTON and I don't want screen real estate taken up.

I don't like that the tabs stop shrinking after a while. Then they start going off the screen to the right.

Then again, browser.tabs.minwidth might change that...

Dunno about that. I thought that was the solution, but then I found that it didn't work...

"Tabbrowser Extensions" (I've only tried it with 1.5) is one way to get around it. You can use it to put the tabs to the right or left of the page, instead of above or below. This is really great if you typically work with an incredible amount of pages, as I do.

I don't like TBE because I don't want that theft of real estate by putting the tabs on the side and because it's apparently the leakiest extension Firefox has.

Trust me, the new tab behavior is much better (you can now scroll around instead of the tabs shrinking to icon size and running off the edge of the window). I just wish that I could still let the tabs shrink to favicon size, especially now that there's a dropdown for all the titles as well.
