The tab list is hidden in the normal state, it is now displayed only when a large number of tabs are opened and it does not fit on the tab bar.

In addition, we implemented the "new tab page" function that we plan to install in Firefox 13. When opening a new tab, you will see a list of frequently viewed pages rather than blank pages (about: blank). This function is a test implementation, so it is disabled by default. To activate it, enter "about: config" in the address bar, open the configuration, change the value of "browser.newtab.url" from "about: blank" to "about: newtab", "browser.newtabpage .enabled "from" false "to" true "and restarting it becomes effective.

The appearance of the new tab page is like this.
