Would someone like to tell me who thought it would be a good idea to have the close tab button in Mozilla actually close the tab bar when I have only one tab open AND I have a preference set to always show the tab bar?!


I’d file a bug on it, but a search of bugzilla reveals that this issue is already being discussed. I really hope they change this new behavior. That button should be disabled when there’s only one tab open. (Especially if I’ve set the preferrence to always show my tab bar.) You want to hide the tab bar? Use the View > Show/Hide > Tab Bar menu option.

It seems others agree with me. That makes me feel better, (as does this little rant.)

Sorry – just felt like bitching. Other than that, I’m liking Moz 1.1b

Edit: Mi no speel gud.

  1. Because overall, Moz is still a better browser. It’s WAY more standards compliant then anything else out there on the market, and works pretty much the same way wether you’re running Windows. MacOS 9.x, OSX, or a Linux/UNIX variant. That means it will (eventually) make my life as a web developer easier.

    The main reason you hear about lots of problems with Moz. is because it’s an open-source project. I actually think this is a good thing becasue it means that any major security flaws, and other problems, get fixed relatively quickly.

    My original post is about a relativly minor UI change that they made to the most recent beta version of the software. The change is currently being discussed in a public forum — and a fix that will make everyoone happy should be forthcoming.
