I found this piece of code on EE, it breaks a page up into simple tabs.

I've tried to adjust the width of the tabs by adding the width tag as below but it wont work in Firefox, it works perfecctly in Internet Explorer. Anyone any thoughts? Many thanks
<style type="text/css">

#tab1, #tab2, #tab3, #tab4 {display:none;}

.tabBtn {background:#ccc;width:200px;}
 

.showTab1 #tab1,

.showTab2 #tab2,

.showTab3 #tab3,

.showTab4 #tab4 {display:block;}
 

.showTab1 #tabBtn1,

.showTab2 #tabBtn2,

.showTab3 #tabBtn3,

.showTab4 #tabBtn4 {background:pink;}

</style>

<script type="text/javascript">

function setTab(num)

{

  document.getElementById('tabHolder').className = 'showTab' + num;

}

</script>

<div id="tabHolder" class="showTab1">

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn1" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(1)">Tab 1</a>

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn2" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(2)">Tab 2</a>

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn3" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(3)">Tab 3</a>

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn4" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(4)">Tab 4</a>

  <table id="tab1">

    <tr><th>Data1</th></tr>

  </table>

  <table id="tab2">

    <tr><th>Data2</th></tr>

  </table>

  <table id="tab3">

    <tr><th>Data3</th></tr>

  </table>

  <table id="tab4">

    <tr><th>Data4</th></tr>

  </table>

</div>

Use padding (padding-right) instead of width. Code attached.

<style type="text/css">

#tab1, #tab2, #tab3, #tab4 {display:none;}

.tabBtn {background:#ccc;padding-right:200px;	}

 

.showTab1 #tab1,

.showTab2 #tab2,

.showTab3 #tab3,

.showTab4 #tab4 {display:block;}

 

.showTab1 #tabBtn1,

.showTab2 #tabBtn2,

.showTab3 #tabBtn3,

.showTab4 #tabBtn4 {background:pink;}

</style>

<script type="text/javascript">

function setTab(num)

{

  document.getElementById('tabHolder').className = 'showTab' + num;

}

</script>

<div id="tabHolder" class="showTab1">

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn1" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(1)">Tab 1</a>

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn2" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(2)">Tab 2</a>

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn3" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(3)">Tab 3</a>

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn4" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(4)">Tab 4</a>

  <table id="tab1">

    <tr><th>Data1</th></tr>

  </table>

  <table id="tab2">

    <tr><th>Data2</th></tr>

  </table>

  <table id="tab3">

    <tr><th>Data3</th></tr>

I have used padding for this:

padding:0px 52px; <-- change the 52px and it will set.

With the first number can change the height a bit, though it will clash if you don't move down the data.

Second number is the padding width, it will stay centered.
<style type="text/css">

#tab1, #tab2, #tab3, #tab4 {display:none;}

.tabBtn {

background:#ccc;

padding:0px 52px;

}
 

.showTab1 #tab1,

.showTab2 #tab2,

.showTab3 #tab3,

.showTab4 #tab4 {display:block;}
 

.showTab1 #tabBtn1,

.showTab2 #tabBtn2,

.showTab3 #tabBtn3,

.showTab4 #tabBtn4 {background:pink;}

</style>

<script type="text/javascript">

function setTab(num)

{

  document.getElementById('tabHolder').className = 'showTab' + num;

}

</script>

<div id="tabHolder" class="showTab1">

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn1" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(1)">Tab 1</a>

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn2" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(2)">Tab 2</a>

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn3" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(3)">Tab 3</a>

  <a href="#" id="tabBtn4" class="tabBtn" onclick="setTab(4)">Tab 4</a>

  <table id="tab1">

    <tr><th>Data1</th></tr>

  </table>

  <table id="tab2">

    <tr><th>Data2</th></tr>

  </table>

  <table id="tab3">

    <tr><th>Data3</th></tr>

  </table>

  <table id="tab4">

    <tr><th>Data4</th></tr>

  </table>

</div>
