Is there an extension for Firefox that gives you a multi-row tab bar?, and if possible the rows should not shuffle up and down, like the Windows tab bars typically do.

TabMixPlus allows multi-row tab bars.

It will allow you to choose the maximum number of rows you want it to show.

Not exactly the answer to your question, but I find Tree Style Tab very useful. Gain some height and order, at cost of some width.

This would be nice on a large flatscreen monitor where you don't have to think much about screen real estate. If they can be further adjusted to make the names smaller, this would be great. – Isxek Sep 16 '09 at 23:23
Well the add-on has a lot of options, really. For example, the left bar can auto-hide or just make it smaller. Also, knowing that most sites are designed for 1024x800 and my laptop has 1280x800, it works great for me, just saying :P. – ianix Sep 16 '09 at 23:31
yeah, I like this one too. – Ronald Pottol Sep 16 '09 at 23:51
@lsxek - You can resize the width of the tab-tree by clicking and draging the separating line between the tab tree and the page. I sometimes have it shrunk so that only the page icons are showing. – Samuel Jaeschke Sep 17 '09 at 1:17
in Tab Kit you have the choice between tree-style AND multi-row (they call it Vertical Tab Bar) – Molly7244 Sep 17 '09 at 1:24
