Is there any way to get rid of that annoying ping-pong ball when loading tabs?

Copy/paste into the location bar and hit Enter: about:config?filter=toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled Toggle it to false

If you get a warning, confirm that you'll be careful so that you can proceed.

There's a list of other animations which you could try disabling in the same way in this article: https://www.ghacks.net/2017/07/06/how-t ... ox-photon/

Try this:

Code: Select all
/* Firefox userChrome.css */

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

.tab-throbber { visibility: hidden !important; }

http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css

And if you want to remove it completely use:
Code: Select all
.tab-throbber {display: none !important; }

In my version the tab text doesn't move after loading.

That's odd, mine moves to the left taking up the space where the ping pong was.

That's correct behavior.

What is the difference between visibility:hidden and display:none?

Actually it appears to remove the favicon as well.
When Amazon is loaded the favicon normally appears.
So I think I prefer it with the ping pong!!

The favicon does still appear with the 'hidden' version...

The favicon appears for me with FFman's version if the site has a favicon.

Yeah, you're right, I should have waited a bit longer for it to finish loading, it was a bit slow! :)
