@Johnny Cellphones don't usually hang out on dishes, though. They prefer soft pockets.

comment Why does Firefox remove the “close tab button” when you have more than n tabs open unless you focus on the tab?
In that case the pattern appears to be that customization will be done via add-ons instead of a monolith of rules like in Opera.

If you compare the names, you'll find them quite different. So no, i am not promoting my add-on, dnbrv. Your comment does not explain an issue as i did actually answer the OP's questions. Furthermore, if anything, i dislike the author of the add-on as he is the one who removed the code in the first place. I'd also like to note that you appear to be plugging Opera, a browser unrelated to the question.
