How To Remove Close Buttons From Firefox Tabs
By on August 3rd, 2009

If you find yourself accidentally clicking the close button on firefox tabs quite frequently, you can remove that little “x” by following these instructions:

1. In the address bar, type about:config

2. Filter results by typing browser.tabs.closeButtons

3. You will see the current value set at 1.

4. Right click on 1 and choose Modify from the menu.

5. Selecting a value of 3, would remove the close button from individual tabs and put a close button on the right hand corner.

6. Selecting a value of 2 would remove the close button. You will still be able to close the tab by pressing Ctrl+W.
