I have a request but am unsure if it would go with this extension well maybe better with TBE.
I would like to be able to put the new tab button back on the tabbar like the Mozilla Suite has it.


Trivial has allowed this for ages, but for some reason a [ * ] upsets people

Well thats were I think there needs to be a a set of basic rules to theming, such as the names of buttons ect. To allow extentions to work better with the themed gui.

statubar a toolbar

As far as making the statusbar elements into moveable toolbar elements, I think what I suggested here would work but I haven't tried it.


i don't think there's any need for that. i already have an object implementing nsIWebProgressListener to get the Stop/Reload button to work, so I just need to expand it a bit to update new toolbaritem equivalents of the current statusbar items as appropriate.

v0.8 is done: http://downloads.mozdev.org/clav/toolba ... ext0.8.xpi (wait an hour for dl mirrors)

i've changed the way it stores the mode (text/icons/both), icon size, visibility etc of toolbars so that this data can be stored for the toolbars below the tabbar and at each end of it. (not that i really expect anyone to want large icons or text+icons on the tab bar, but still... :))

this does mean that it will probably forget your current settings when you upgrade :p


the other change is that adding the Fullscreen button will now stop the normal window controls showing in fullscreen mode (those ugly things at the end of the Navigation Toolbar)

It keeps getting better and better clav, nice.

I use small icons and so when the icons I put on bar below tabbar, they are made to be large, for me at least.
edit: doh ... right click gives me the option to change size of icons and add text. I guess I was using the 7.1 before mostly like it was the 6.0 version and that I need sleep.:p

I like the fullscreen mode too.

In case anybody is wondering I got it at a mirror as the link is still not working at this time for me.

new tab button in trivial uses the seamonkey class, so it could be supported if theme creators new about it

Code: Select all
.tabs-newbutton {
...
}

0.9 is done

http://downloads.mozdev.org/clav/toolba ... ext0.9.xpi

allow you to place toolbar items at each end of the status bar

has new large icons for Zoom In and Zoom out.

all id's within the extension have been changed to use the prefix 'tbx' rather than the previous mixture of 'tbext' and 'toolbarext'. so you'll need to reconfigure the toolbars. (or just not bother upgrading of course).

Trying out the new 0.9 one problem though. I was trying putting my bookmarks toolbar inside the tabbar which that in itself is preaty cool. But the Bookmarks I have in folders wont go anywhere when I press them but the bookmarks just on the bar work fine.

strange. i've no idea what's causing it. presumably it happened in 0.8 too ?


0.10 is done. i've added the per-tab toggles for images and javascript from PrefButtons. but with icons. they seem to get out of synch sometimes though

Your developing an extension that is totally awesome clav. Thanks.

Your very close to making me a very happy camper. I hope I'm not buggin you about this, but if you could have seperate options for Load Images and Load Images for the originating Web site only, that would make my day. I need Load Images for my home page, but only toggle the other option for some sites.

Having buttons for all four options, Java, Javascript, Load Images and Load images for the originating Web site only would be great.

yes, but once everything i want from PrefButtons has been incorporated.


bozz: the global prefs (as against per-tab prefs) from PrefButtons will be added at some point.

0.10.2 is done. adds a per-tab pref toggle for Meta Refreshes. enough people have asked for it in the fora over the last few months... and it's one where i could think of a nice icon! :)

download: http://downloads.mozdev.org/clav/toolba ... 0.10.2.xpi

new screenshot: http://downloads.mozdev.org/clav/toolba ... uttons.png
shows the new features in 0.9 and 0.10.x

all the screenshots are now in http://downloads.mozdev.org/clav/toolba ... reenshots/
(some were previously in http://clav.mozdev.org/toolbarext/ )

That "new screenshot" link is not linked to the image, which apparently is hiding somewhere else, but trying the link gave me some odd error messages the first time or two I tried it, then it reverted to admitting that the image that is not there is not there.
