Remove the close tab button from Firefox 2.0

If you are a Firefox user like myself, you most likely installed the latest Firefox 2.0 and love it. The only problem I have had is the new close button found in the right side of each tab. I’ve accidently closed about a dozen tabs simply cause my tab clicks were over the X button. Talk about fustrating. I did a little searching and found the setting to remove the close tab button.

First, in the address bar, type:

about:config

Do a search for the following:

browser.tabs.closeButtons

Possible values:

0 – Display close button on current tab only
1 – Display close button on each tab (default)
2 – No close button in any tab

I used the 0 setting which removes the close button from all of the tabs except the one you are viewing currently. That’s just perfect for me!

Happy surfing!
