Effectively minimize tab size

I saw this tip on how to minimize the size of the tab of Firefox. See link below.

xttp://www.askvg.com/how-to-customize-and-change-width-or-length-of-tabs-in-mozilla-firefox/

Since Ice Dragon 15 is based from Firefox, I tried it out by creating a ‘chrome’ folder in,

C:\Users\Malik XXXXX\AppData\Roaming\Comodo\IceDragon\Profiles\xxxxxxx.default

and, placed the ‘userChrome.css’ file in it. From the example given in the link above, I replaced the value of 140px instead of 250px. Re:

Actually the hack worked but I noticed that there was an issue with the ‘Add Tab’ button. It seems to have been left floating when you close the tab next to it. See image attached.

Is there a better way to minimize the tab size in Ice Dragon?

Hello,

You should try using this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-mix-plus/?src=ss

It allows you to customize the tab size without requiring tampering with the file structure.

Regards.
