Firefox 3.5’s new tab button has already been established as a feature some people like and some people could do without. However, what if you could tweak it visually to meet your needs? That is what some people have done, and here are the eight most popular new tab button hacks out there today.
Please Note: To use any of these, you will need to have the Firefox add-on Stylish installed.
No Icon Image Until Click – New tab button icon does not appear until you CLICK on it instead of when you hover because there is another style that produces that effect.
Tiny + 3D(Special Effects) – New Tab Button on the tab bar is tiny and when you click on it, it changes.
Left Side New Tab Button – Move the new tab button to the left of the tab bar, instead of the far right of the tab bar.
Smaller New Tab Button – make the new tab button smaller, which changes how it looks in the Firefox interface (makes it more of a button).
Change the New Tab Icon into a Firefox Icon – Want something a little more colorful to show you how to open a new tab? This user style will replace your new tab icon with the Firefox icon.
Round off the New Tab Button – Give that new tab button a rounded off edge, so it isn’t such a square.
Change the New Tab Button Color – with this, the new tab button will become another color when you hover.
Remove the Open a New Tab Button – Don’t like the new tab button? With this user style you can get rid of it all together.
