Moving Tabs bar to the bottom of all tool bars in Firefox

by zlzpqx / January 20, 2016 9:33 PM PST

Long time ago, I had moved my Tabs bar in Firefox to the bottom of all tool bars. Earlier today, it had somehow moved up. So I looked for the boolean key "browser.tabs.onTop" in about:config to move it back to the bottom, but I found that that boolean key no longer exists.

Please help. Thank you!

Open about:config in browser
right clk and choose New, then Boolean
name it browser.tabs.onTop
set to false

if that won't do it, go to the add-ons, look for Tabs On Bottom and accept it.

The first method somehow did not work, but the add-on method worked!

Thank you!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
