Firefox 57 and Tree Style Tabs BROKEN

It's amazing how much damage the new version of Firefox is inflicting to the user community.

If you are a Tree Style Tab user and HATE seeing the tabs being displayed on top and left at same time:

In a nutshell (on Windows)

open a cmd prompt
cd Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/
cd *** (whatever is named your profile.... no clue why they could not choose a fixed name...)
mkdir chrome

in this chrome folder, create a userChrome.css file with this content:

@namespace url("");

/* to hide the native tabs */
#TabsToolbar {
    visibility: collapse;

/* to hide the sidebar header */
#sidebar-header {
    visibility: collapse;

and restart Firefox.... and pray that with next release they will not break everything again.

For the time being I have disabled the automatic update of Firefox...

In Linux, use about:config in the browser to find your Profile directory ( /home/centos/.mozilla/firefox/pmrfuuch.default in my case), then mkdir chrome etc etc. (see )
