Tabs are hard to see!

Please, please, please, give us a theme where you can actually see differentiation between the tabs. This is awful. Pretty, but NOT READABLE.


Same as what I have asked for in: Changes to themeable areas of Firefox in version 89

And here Can't customize my tab appearance anymore
Also here Compliments on the new UI

I agree with Droyston. I like my tabs in default view before Firefox 89.0

Hey folks! Sorry to hear you’re having a hard time with the new tabs look. What themes are you currently using? (You can check by going to Tools --> Add-ons and Themes, and then selecting the Themes panel.)

I had a better experience with tab differentiation when I switched to the built-in Firefox Aplenglow theme. You might want to try it out, or see if one of the themes available on is a better fit.

I tried a number of different ones. There really isn’t any difference because in all the styles the tabs are transparent, except for the active tab. I finally settled on the “cute bird” style, which is really attractive. Compliments on that.

I’m getting more used to the transparent tabs, but I’d prefer to see a little differentiation, such as a light gray line around the inactive tabs or a tint or something. It just makes them a bit easier to read.

But maybe after a week I’ll be so used to the transparent tabs that it’ll be business as usual again, and I won’t even notice.

please please please restore the ability to have tab separations be made visible.


Again, PLEASE restore the vertical lines or an outline of each independent tab!! Maybe the younger eyes don’t have a prob with this new theme but I certainly do. I’ve been using Firefox since 2001 and if you can’t outline the tabs or put verticle lines back in, I’ll have to switch to something else. I hate to but I can’t really deal with these. I’m not all that young and have some vision probs and this is a prob for me. Why does everyone have to fix what isn’t broken? It technically does’t even look like tabs anymore like this. It’s back to the pre-tab days.


Have same Problem with the new Design. Here my Answere so i do not dubble Answere same: Where is original theme colours?
