I was playing with the Tab X Extension XPI and added the remove Tab Button userChrome hider and I replaced the Button usage to the one that Moonwolf had developed in his earlier version of Tab X. I call it Tab X 0.3.1 but I haven't really done anything much cept hack and slash the two packages together. From what I can tell it works just fine. It looks pretty too since it uses the current themes Tab Button (that was hidden of course.)

Do any of these extensions give you the option to place tabs at the bottom of the screen?

Not that I know of... I don't know what would be needed to be done to make such a thing happen. I've never seen an extension like that.. I don't think TBE has that but then I haven't used it in a while.

Which extension is it that lets you set up scrolling tabs for when there are a ton of tabs, so you can see them all? Also, which one allows you to move them around to change the order of tabs?

If it is Mini-T, I'd like to wait until the single window parts are taken out, and it is made "1.0 friendly".

#content > tabbox {
-moz-box-direction: reverse;
}

All that's needed is some programmatic code to set the style property for a given <tabbox/>.

Ok, I uploaded my Modified version of Tab X 0.3-- named Tab X+ 0.3.
* Changes from official Tab X 0.3
-- Add the modifications for the Tab X Button to be replaced by the current Tab Closer theme button (Moonwolf from Tab X 0.2)
-- Added into css the ability to hide the Tabbar Closer Button (Thanks to Moonwolf for showing me what to do)

Tab X+ 0.3 [Link]
Hosted on extensionsmirrors.nl now :)

It will install over the official Tab X 0.3 without any difficulties.

--Thoughts---
- Learn how to make a Pref interface to enable and disable stuff.
- Incorporate the Basics (New Tab Button on Tabbar) extension
- Start to incorpate some of the Tabbar Stuff into a newish extension codenamed Tabbar Perfs :p.

Just thoughts.. no promises.

Scrollable Tabs or Flowing Tabs, whatever you meant.

miniT or variants.

Uhm, there are no "single window parts" in miniT...

I'm having no issues with miniT on the latest nightlies, so go for it.

Does Mini-T do what Scrollable Tabs or Flowing Tabs does? If so, maybe I'll give it a try.

I think the version I had died, and I thought it was a dead extension for a while.

Tab-X and Duplicate Tab seem to have a conflict. See the other post on Duplicate Tab to see what's happening.


11/12/2004 edit: They both now seem to be working OK with latest versions (Duplicate Tab 0.3.2 and Tab X 0.5).

My laptop doesn't have a middle mouse button (IBM Thinkpad X40), so I use the Control key as a modifier. In TBE, this allows me to ctrl-click on a link, and have it open in a background tab.
I've tried to duplicate this functionality with TBP, MiniT, and Tab Clicking Options, but I haven't found a combination that works.
Does anyone have a suggestion?

- Open new tabs from external application (background)
- open new backgroudn tabs from addressbar/seach bar (result/entry)
- Focus without clicking
- Undo close tab
- Middle click to close tab
- Keeping one firefox window, except special links, such as "javascript" and such.... (opened window will be automatically resized)

ieremiou, can you modify your TabX + so that you have the option to enable/disable the default close X instead of just removing it completely? undoclosetab uses that particular spot to undo closed tabs. (middle click on the X)

Nobody talks about Focus issues of TBE:
Without TBE I´m unable to handle the focus. That means that every link opened in TB openes nice in a new tab but brings FX in foreground - REALLY annoying. :twisted:
Is there any setting I don´t see yet?
And also this not used left blank tab is not really nice... :(

Thanks in advance
