Who was the bonehead who disabled hiding the tab in the first place. If I wanted a dumbed down browser I would stick with IE.
However that's where it looks like FF is headed.
Glad Chris came along with this.
Thanks Chris

Perfect, does exactly what I expect. I cannot for the life of me fathom why this feature was removed from Firefox, and with more than 21K people bothering to look for and install this plugin, clearly I'm not the only one who missed it.

Look I know for those who like tabs, it is absolutely impossible to fathom why someone would prefer to use their browser another way but please try to remember that everyone has their own preference and don't take away choices.

Personally I've tried to like tabs but I just don't. I often have multiple browser windows open and alt-tab between them. I've already got a perfectly usable task bar in my OS and the browser tabs are a redundant second task bar specific to the browser.

Natural preference for people who don't use tabs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great plugin. Don't understand why they removed this preference if they still offer opening in window instead of tab. If you open in a new window, then you don't want the damn tab bar in your way.

Yes, we need it, thanks for bringing it back!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can't say much about a thing that does what's supposed to do other than 'Excellent!'. Thanks, Chris!
Dear Mozilla, removing this feature from Firefox - for whatever reason - was wrong since it works against the idea of a neat and uncluttered browsing experience.

Excellent extension for minimising the firefox GUI Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As I tend to prefer keyboard shortcuts to the menus, tool and tab bars provided by most applications, I prefer to hide these unused GUI elements where possible, particularly when working on the small screen of my laptop. This extension has allowed me to hide the last of these in firefox, so that nothing is displayed except the content I care about.

The extension is highly configurable and supports auto-hiding of tabs as well as customising the keybindings which persistently enable or disable them.

I highly recommend it to anyone who prefers their GUI minimal either simply when working on a small screen, for integration in a tiling environment like Xmonad or simply for a cleaner aesthetic.

I love this add-on. Who wants to see a tab bar when there is only one tab? what was mozilla thinking?!

Close-tab - fixed! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just installed version 1.2beta3. Very happy and grateful to see the close-X restored, glad you were able to fix it!!
Now I can enable this extension again (as mentioned in my previous 'review': I felt forced to disable it, without the close-function), and enjoy its benefits).

As reviewer Clint mentioned earlier: this is NOT a useless feature. On the contrary: to me, it's absolutely necessary!

Keep on the good work!

WOW! (but why should we need this) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is absolutely great for the people who don't want a Tab Bar when there are no tabs (gee why does a window with no tabs need a tab bar?). I really hope the "bone heads" at Mozilla who removed this option are looking at these posts. They restricted posting on the "bug" forum which posted this bug as: "We should not allow the ability to hide the tab bar ever. In this day and age, browser have tabs, and hiding the entire bar is useless...". I develop software and this is a feature change, not a "bug". Obviously, removing the tab bar can be done as this add on demonstrates. So Mozilla decided to make Firefox less user friendly for no reason other than "browser have tabs" and hiding a tab bar when you don't have any tabs is "useless". Well on my 800x600 notebook, IT IS NOT USELESS!!!!!

If you feel the same way, report this to Mozilla. Let them know the feature is not "useless". Let them know we should not have to depend on a add on (which may not work with a future release) to get the feature!

Perfect! Works exactly as it should (basically eliminates firefox's odd "solo tab" space-waster) Oh, and thanks for the 'x' button fix!!

Problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It has a problem, at least in firefox 25. It disables the close (X) buttons on the tabs, instead there is only one close button on the right side of the screen, which can close the active tab only.
However it was a great addon, to correct the mozzilla's annoying decision to remove the feature, what this addon brings back.

Just wanted to say THANKS! for a Very useful Add-On... I too got the X-button shifted to the far right recently, but got it back on the tab with v1.2beta3.

Version 1.2beta2 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To get the x back on the tabs:

Click on Version Information at bottom of page.
Then click on See complete version history.
Finally, choose Version 1.2beta2 by clicking on Add to Firefox.

Thanks for the Firefox extension!

Thanks for explaining how to get the fixed version. I keep trying, but people don't see it. Hopefully they will see this. I did just upload to beta3. Hopefully addons.mozilla.org approves it soon so people won't need to read this. (There was a small error in beta2 that threw errors into the error console, but worked correctly anyway - unlike the first beta)

Problem With Addon Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I love your extension, but the x is missing from the tab. I have the latest version of FF, and the 1.2 beta of Hide Tab Bar With One Tab.

Can you remedy this ASAP?

Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2beta.1-signed). 

It should be fixed in beta2. That should show up automatically in a few hours/days or you can get it by clicking on "Version Information" and the Version 1.2beta link at the bottom of the add-ons page here.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This was very useful extension (5 stars at first), but with the close button being moved off the tab it has become less than useful to me. I'm not sure whose fault this is, FF or the creator of the extension, but putting it off to the right and closing tabs only in reverse opened order is simply a bad choice and counter productive.

I can live without this until it's fixed or someone can do a better job of thinking this through.

Love this extension, but as previous writer wrote; the close X button is missing as well for me... (25.0.1 + 1.2beta). Keep up the great work!

Edit: Installed the beta2! I can now release my deep breath :) Thanks Chris!
