You can stop the animated Tab cursor by adding modifying your
userChrome.css file in /.mozilla/firefox/your.default.profile/chrome/

I had to create the chrome directory and the userChrome.css file with
nano or any text editor because I did not have a chrome/userChrome.css file.

Here is the file I created and listed with cat in my firefox default
profile (Note: to restore firefox to what it was just remove the
userChrome.css file.
Here's mine:

~/.mozilla/firefox/0xv974y1.default/chrome$ cat userChrome.css
 * Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct
url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /*
set default namespace to XUL */
/*disable throbber in firefox -e.g. kill the tab animation while loading
tab page*/
/* I created this file and you can just delete it to get back to
installed dwb */
.tab-throbber { display: none !important }

--> You may prefer to use the instructions that I used, located at:
