Or just type %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles in the search box.

~/.mozilla/firefox/< >/chrome

Mac OS X

/Library/Application Support//Firefox/Profiles/< >/chrome

2. Close Firefox
3. open userChrome.css OR userChrome-example.css (in that case, rename it to userChrome.css) and add the following line:

.tabs-newtab-button {display: none;}

4. Done!

    Sir I have Windows-7 Ultimate & I tried 4.0 Beta 1 & then Firefox Setup 3.6.8_2  & now again back to Firefox Setup 3.6.8. Mizilla Firefox has to be with its own basic features & proceed further. Google Chrome is finest & Windows Essential beta is patching up; yes fine, certainly I love Yahoo’s home page dedicated by Mozilla Firefox

      … or simply right-click the toolbar and click “Customise”. After that, simply drag the new tab button away from the toolbar.
