Description Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2013-12-03 13:48:38 CET
While preparing new appliances, i noticed that the tab bar is always visible, although they were hidden in 3.1 and our first 3.2 appliances by setting user_pref("browser.tabs.autoHide", true);

It seems that this feature was removed from firefox 23 and now manifests in our appliances since we switched to firefox 24esr.

The mozilla bugtracker entry to remove the feature:

Does this addon help?
Comment 2 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2014-02-03 11:05:38 CET
With the addon the tab bar is hidden again. I have bundled it with univention-mozilla-firefox.

r47587 univention-mozilla-firefox 8.0.0-2.95.201402031036
r47588 staging/2014-02-03-univention-mozilla-firefox.yaml
Comment 3 Florian Best univentionstaff 2014-02-04 15:14:27 CET
The tabbar still appears.

The changes were made in univention-mozilla-firefox and not univention-system-setup-boot. So no changes are present in appliance mode. Maybe the USS-boot  package needs to be rebuilt or the changes have to be done in USS-boot package.
Comment 4 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2014-02-07 13:50:36 CET
We found that the tabbar did not appear. We however agreed on using the addon only in appliance setup. The addon was removed from univention-mozilla-firefox (r47681) and added to univention-system-setup-boot:

r47682 univention-system-setup 7.0.69-7.568.201402071339
r47683 +2014-02-07-univention-system-setup.yaml -2014-02-03-univention-mozilla-firefox.yaml
Comment 5 Florian Best univentionstaff 2014-02-10 11:11:13 CET
OK: changes in univention-mozilla-firefox reverted
OK: tab bar is hidden
OK: addon is removed after system-setup configuration (or canceling)
YAML: OK, description has been adapted.
