Works nicely Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No need to restart. No unneeded things. Just simple and working.

P.S. This website is awful, but it's not your problem; it's Mozilla's problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The max tab width setting will not allow me to type anything that does not start with '10', which appears to be the minimum by text.
For me, this is a useful addon for using themes that set a really small min tab width.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Worked perfectly before Firefox 29, now it still works, but as Firefox no longer seems to take browser.tabs.tabClipWidth into account, there are no close buttons if the tab width is below 140px(the default), even if usually they are. A workaround for this is to use stylish or userChrome.css to set this:

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button{display: block !important;}

This works in UX Nightly too! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just tried this in UX Nightly (version 24.0a1), and it works! I tried changing "browser.tabs.tabMaxWidth" all the way up to 500 prior to installing Custom Tab Width, but only Custom Tab Width makes it work! Nice.

I didn't need this until the UX Nightly build. In Firefox 21, my setting in about:config was still working. Well done, Dao Gottwald!

Works like a charm on FF21. Does everything it says beautifully.

Consistently crashes and locks up FF20 on vanilla win7 installation when hitting "options"

Absolutely necessary. Should be a standard feature.
Works fine with F18

nice tool

Works in 15.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The extension DOES work in 15.0.1 and in 15.0.1 it does remember the settings from session to session.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension does not work on Firefox 14.0.1. The options are set to a minimum width of 1 and a max width of 10. If you change these, they switch back to the original values, and the extension does nothing, i.e., the tab width behaviour stays the same, with tabs scrolling off to the right, instead of shrinking in size.

This used to be so easy with a couple of parameters set in about:config. Then some genius at Mozilla decided that this feature was not required by users. I hate tabs scrolling off to the side.

Please, someone, give us a way of shrinking tab widths, instead of scrolling.

works great, till the latest update to FF.
since then it keeps forgetting the settings every time i restart the browser. still, works while in session, i can live with that. hopefully an update will come...

Brilliant in its simplicity. Just what I needed since I always seem to have a lot of tabs open and will be especially useful when I am working on a small screen. This definitely increased the speed with which I browse. I only wish I had found it sooner. I left the max alone and went for 45 for the min just to give people an idea of a rough value.

Good, but one problem Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Middleclick opens the tab scroll buttons, even though it doesn't scroll much. Small bug, but still annoyance.

Absolutely fantastic, exactly what I needed. I have many tabs open and this changes them to a more sensible size.

Does what it says it will Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since I keep a lot of tabs open at the same time, I like them to be fairly short -- and this is the only add-on I was able to find that could simply and quickly let me do that. Works perfectly on my XP, with FF 9

very nice addon, i really like it!
would be great if you could allow max tab width values much greater than 1000, at the moment i always patch it by hand and set it to 9999 because i need much bigger tabs.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Great Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been so annoyed after Mozilla removed the option to remove the stupid tab scrolling from the "about:config" settings in Firefox 9.

This tab exactly what I needed > set custom min width so the annoying scrolling goes away! Easy, simple, user friendly - thank you!

Close button no longer visible Rated 2 out of 5 stars

At first I thought this was a good idea, but the problem is you lose sight of the Close button and therefore have to CTRL+W, or right click and then Close Tab to exit after loading the site. It would be much more convenient to be able to close the tab while viewing a different site.

I always thought narrower tabs looks better, like chrome or opera. this add-on is exactly what I want. the only minor problem is that I can not type a specific value in the max width column
