The new "ColorfulTabs" edition for Firefox 57 under Linux is misbehaving. As here the tabs are placed in the top row above (!) the address row and the bookmark row, the color of the respective tab also keeps bleeding out into both rows (see pic). Everything green in this picture is caused by ColorfulTabs.
For reasons unknown the Linux version of Firefox is "blessed" with this special feature of having the tab row at the utmost top, which cannot yet be changed by the user. Though there was an Add-On to move the tab row below the other rows, but it is not available for Firefox 57 (at least yet).
But as this Add-On is merely a workaround I ask you if you van make a little change in ColorfulTabs to contain the respective color only into that one tab it is meant to be.
OFF TOPIC: If you might create another Add-On which could move the tab row (for Firefox 57 under Linux) 2 steps down, below the other 2 rows, this would also be a great improvement.

It's exactly looking as it's supposed to look for now. Pls see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1320585
Currently there's no way to correct it.November 21, 2017 at 8:56 am #20059
So the same behaviour the old version did is no longer possible?
1) the active tab is marked by a strong color
2) all other tabs show their own colors, albeit distinguishably lighter
3) The other bars (address bar, bookmark bar) are NOT colored
In general this was the way the old version worked, and I just want to have exactly this behaviour back. If possible.
Thank you.November 21, 2017 at 1:57 pm #20060Shivanand SharmaKeymaster
