C.J's idea is good. I havent' changed anything like that on mine
and I have 3.6.8 on WinXP, but with prior versions too, I always have
that little box. When the right-most tab is showing, there is nothing
in the box, and when it's not, there is a dim-grey arrow in it. It
doesn't appear and disappear. There are two other boxes the same
size, one that makes a new tab and one that displays a list of the
tab. And on the left end of the tab bar is a matching box with a
I like the arrow that makes the tabs scroll.
Well, there is one change I made, in options/tabs, unless it was the
default. That is, Always show the tab bar. Maybe if you change
that it will somehow make a difference.
