How to make Firefox/Iceweasel bearable

Firefox/Iceweasel TABs

After a recent apt-get dist-upgrade I noticed that I'm using Firefox/Iceweasel 2.0 now.

Which is nice and all, but it doesn't really fit my way of browsing and TAB-handling. I always have lots of TABs open simultaneously. And by lots I mean 100-600. I'm not kidding. Firefox 2.0 changed TAB sizes and behaviour which makes it completely unusable for me.

A quickfix to make it at least bearable:

  1. Type about:config in the URL bar.
  2. Search for browser.tabs.tabMinWidth default integer 100
  3. Change 100 to 8.
  4. Restart the browser.

A lot better now...

Now I need an extention which provides me with a scrollbar for the TAB-bar, I cannot click 200 times just to move to a TAB which is 200 TABs away from the current one...
