Tab Mix Plus adds Close Tab button in PM 31.0.0

Unread post by sevendy » 2022-05-10, 15:13

Installing Tab Mix Plus in 31.0.0 adds a non-removable Close Tab button on the right side of the tab bar. This is in addition to the TMP Close Tab button option under "Display/Tab Bar". Reverting from TMP 0.5.8.3 to 0.5.8.2 does not help. Also, the button cannot be moved off the tab bar through "Customize" dialog.

I noticed this right away and I intended to eventually figure out if it was caused by an add-on. Actually TM+ was the first one I suspected might be the cause of this. It doesn't really bother me, and I hope that particular add-on works correctly since it is a very used add-on by me.

The TM+ add-on is available in "Classic Archives" (caa) - however can't vouch for how well it works on PMv31 (perhaps worth a try.... :think:).

You can turn off the close button in TMP's settings.

I have just switched to my preferred theme (In The Dark) and noticed that the Close Tab button/icon is no longer an 'X', but is a left pointing arrow and when hovered over it is a right pointing arrow. This isn't really a problem for me, in fact I find it a bit amusing.

I have that option not set and it makes no difference.

No, this is an additional Close Tab button.

#TabsToolbar > *:last-child {
  display: none!important;
}

You cannot remove the "Close" button because it has the property "removable = false" in the "tabstoolbar.xul" file.

To solve this problem, you have two options:

1. Edit the file:

"Tab-Mix-Plus-0.5.8.3\chrome\content\overlay\tabstoolbar.xul"

like this:
tabstoolbar.xul.png
OR:

2. Add the CSS code below in the file "...\Pale Moon\Profiles\XXXXXXXX.default\chrome\userChrome.css":

Code: Select all

#tabmix-tabs-closebutton {
	display:none!important;
}

Hello, I'd like to get rid of this close tab button too, but I'm looking for the files mentioned in post #8 and I can't find either of them.

I only see a file called "userChrome-example.css" (not "userChrome.css")

Can you tell me where to find "Tab-Mix-Plus-0.5.8.3\chrome\content\overlay\tabstoolbar.xul" ?

Thank you

EDIT: maybe the developer will update this extension soon, see https://tabmixplus.org/forum/viewtopic. ... 1a4#p74074

Just rename it by removing '-example'.

After updating to PM 31.0.0, Tab Mix Plus adds an entire group of icons to the right of the tab bar - not just a "close" button:
tmp.png
If I hover on top of the icons with the mouse cursor, they disappear.
This happens only when not using the default theme (in this case it's Dark Moon).

@onemen, just FYI if you're working on an update. Thanks for your work on this extension!

It's a problem with your theme maybe - works fine for me on a different theme.

Thanks for looking. I tried a few themes (Dark Moon, Black Moon, Material Moon) and saw the same issue with all of them, but now that I've tested a few more, I found one that doesn't exhibit the problem (XMoon... although it looks funny with more than one row of tabs anyway).

[EDIT] Very odd: I just installed an unrelated extension, Web Developer's Toolbox (in the hopes that it'd help me troubleshoot UI issues like this, which apparently it can't). Immediately after installing it and restarting PM, that unwanted pile of icons went away - but only with the Dark Moon theme, which happened to be active at the time.
Can't account for it really, but at least it seems to have fixed my issue... for now. *shrugs*

Tab Mix Plus automatically updated to Version 0.5.8.4 and this problem seems now fixed: I don't see the close button on the far right anymore.

Thank you very much!
