Move/Remove List All Tabs Button

Posted: Wednesday, January 10, 2007 by El Guru in Firefox, Fx 2.0, Fx 3.0, Fx 3.5, Fx 3.6, Tips & Tweaks

Note: For this tweak I recommend using the ChromEdit Plus extension.

With Firefox 2 came the options of changing where your close tab buttons were displayed along with tab-overflow and the List All Tabs buttons. By default the List All Tabs Button is on the right side of the tab bar. You can either move it to the left side of your tab bar or remove the button altogether.

To move the List All Tabs Button to the left side, simply add these lines to your userChrome.css file located in your profile folder:

    .tabs-alltabs-stack {-moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important}
    .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {-moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important}
    .tabs-closebutton-box {-moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important}

Or to remove the List All Tabs Button add this line to your userChrome.css file located in your profile folder:

Firefox 2

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

Firefox 3.0 or newer

.tabs-container > stack  {display:none!important}

When you are done editing your userChrome.css file, close and restart Firefox and the changes should take effect right away.

    Quick question: Why is there no about:config setting for this?

  2. this tweak doesn’t work in Gran Paradiso…

  3. Interesting, I know a lot of the ‘Chrome Tweaks’ won’t work in Gran Paradiso. I am going to be doing more with Gran Paradiso in the coming weeks as it will be my primary browser when I am running Ubuntu.

  4. to be more precise, moving “List All Tabs” button to the left side works, but the .tabs-alltabs-stack { display: none !important;} tweak doesn’t…

    Yes best wallpapers is right the .tabs-alltabs-stack { display: none !important;} code does not work. Can you find on that does cause that list all tabs icon is sooo annoying. Thanx in advance

  6. ListAllTabsHater says:

    It works when you rename ‘userChrome-example.css’ to ‘userchrome.css’

  7. vince de benedeto says:


    I simply cannot get this to work:

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

    I tried placing it at the start, then the end, of my userchrome.css document.

    And I did rename from ‘userChrome-example.css’ to ‘userchrome.css’

    Can anyone kindly provide explicit and specific instructions on how to do this?

    Also, is it supposed to have asterisks or slashes around it?

    Hey, thanks!

    Simply insert this line at the end of your userChrome.css (note the capital C in Chrome):

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

    I just tried it on a fresh profile in Windows Vista and it works fine.

    Thanks. The

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

    was just what I was looking for :)


  10. […] Fx Tweak: List All Tabs Button – Another annoying/useless tab related feature that came with Fx 2 was the drop-down listing all open tabs. I suppose this is useful if you have lots of tabs open or the tab overflow still set to default. Nonetheless, it is a feature most of us could do without. […]

  11. I’ve tried this:
    .tabs-alltabs-stack { display: none !important;}
    and works fine, and its a really good thing, one must know this.

    I don’t have userChrome.css file!!!!

  13. sapient says:

    so is there a way to remove the button in firefox 3.0 ? (grand paradiso)?

  14. Emarell says:

    The tweak

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

    worked perfectly to remove the annoying button (Firefox

    Thanks. My only input is that button’s tooltip actually called it ‘Display Opened Tabs’ rather than ‘List All Tabs,’ so I was unsure my search for a fix had ended.

    Hi, for those wondering how to hide the “display opened tabs list” in FF 3.0 with Tab Mix Plus you can go to about:config and change extensions.tabmix.hideAllTabsButton to “True”

  16. shuff says:

    This works on Firefox 3.0 RC-3:
    .tabs-alltabs-button { display: none !important; }

  17. avoidz says:

    Cheers, shuff, for the FF3 code :)

  18. sypl says:

    shuff’s solution made it so that the ‘list all tabs’ button doesn’t appear, but the area it occupied still exists as a small blank space when I have many tabs open. Is there any way to get rid of this?

  19. sypl says:

    Never mind, found the solution here:

    The line needed is:
    .tabs-container > stack {display:none!important}

  20. […] If you have removed the list all tabs button, the Tab Preview Panel can still be accessed via Shift+Ctrl+Tab Source: Mozilla Links Leave a […]
