Disable Tab scrolling in Firefox 2

Firefox 2.0 displays tab navigation buttons on each side of the tab strip when a lot of tabs are opened.

This scrolling feature can be disabled by just following a few simple steps.

1. Type about:config in the Firefox address bar and press Enter.

2. Now double-click on browser.tabs.tabMinWidth and change the value to 0.

Disabling the tab scrolling feature will cause Firefox to shrink the size of the tabs if too many of then are opened.

no it doesn't. it allows more tabs before the scrolling kicks in, but it still kicks in (where it kicks in depends on the size of your monitor- for me it's now @ 25 tabs). better, but still not back to what we're all used to with v. 1.5
you are right.
Thnx for bringing it to my notice.
I never went beyond 8 or 9 tabs
