Make tab bar scrollabe, maybe even multi-row configurable

  • Hello,

    One long-standing feature-request I have since almost ten years is that, I need the tab bar to be scrollable. This is the main reason why I can't use Opera or Chrome and have to use Firefox. When working with 20+ tabs like I do often, then tabs become to small to even read anymore. See for the problem In Firefox the tabs have a minimum width which at least let me read the first ~8 letters, which helps a lot! And I think it would help many others.

    I don't suggest to make that mode the default mode, but at least I would like to be able to flip a switch to be able to use it. What also comes of use is this addon: Which allows me to use 2 rows of tabs. This also is very helpful.

    There don't seem to be addons for either of these addons, which makes me think, whether that the addon API doesn't support addons regarding the tab bar layout?

  • I change my browser from firefox to Opera and there is missing few things, but most of them is tab bar not scrollable and if I want open about 50 to 100 tabs, the tabs are very small. Opera Dev please for all you, can you add option to change tabs bechavior like in firefox?

    I mean when I have opened 50 or more tabs, there going like "out of the screen" like in firefox, tabs size is the same not changing and scrollable, thats is perfect.

    There is no addon to this issue.


    My regards

  • Really great feature, please make the dream true

  • Up! 👍🏼
    Is there any progress with that?
