Hi CPU,

Since you already seem to be going down the TabMix lite/TabMix enhanced route can I raise the old chestnut of loading and saving tabs as per my previous post here. This got mixed reactions last time as some where concerned about the size of the featureset whilst others considered it a logical expansion of existing functionality but since you already have two versions this will not be as much of an issue.

to add full session saver is much more complicated than just play around with some function in existing code.
if u need full session saver support it better to use rue SessionSaver and disable the session restore in tabmix. i can always can copy all rue SessionSaver extension and pack it together with Tabmix, but what is the point ?

A request for the per-tab progress bars:

Would it be possible, that instead of using a solid colour for the progress bars, that it could use the system skinned progress bars, and set them half-transparent to the tab background so they don't obscure the tab text?

i remember Tabmix use to praise itslef for making most of the features user want and under 30K. But now it seems to go over 50K already........

Although firefox 2 was suppose to include most of these features by default........

Pardon me if this has already been answered, but has development for Tab Mix been officially taken over from v0.2.1 going forward? I *really* like this extension, by the way.

Any chance the tab loading icon functionality will be restored?

As I see, the last version from TabMix available at http://www.gary.elixant.com/tabmix/ has included this solution:
onemen wrote:for Tab Loading icons add this add this to tab.css
Code: Select all
/* display animated Throbber on busy tabs*/
tab[busy] .tab-site-icon, tabs[busy] .tab-site-icon {
  list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/Throbber-small.gif");
  opacity: 0.5;
}

that will brake all themes that don't use Throbber-small.gif as name for their throbbers. A better and "cleaner" way could be changing the content/tabmix/tab/tabmix.xml:
Code: Select all
<!-- for TabX and MouseOverSelectTab
       original codes by Stephen Clavering
       modified by Hemiola SUN -->
  <binding id="browser-tab" display="xul:tab"
      extends="chrome://global/content/bindings/tabbox.xml#tab">
    <content>
       <xul:hbox class="tab-startcap" xbl:inherits="selected"/>  <!-- hack for Charamel Theme -->
 <xul:hbox class="tab-middle box-inherit" xbl:inherits="align,dir,pack,orient,selected" flex="1">
      <xul:hbox class="tab-drag-indicator-left"/>
      <xul:stack class="tab-icon" xbl:inherits="src=image">
        <xul:image class="tab-site-icon" xbl:inherits="validate,src=image"/>
        <xul:image class="tab-protect-icon"/>
        <xul:image class="tab-lock-icon"/>
      </xul:stack>
      <xul:stack class="tab-text-container" flex="1">
        <xul:progressmeter class="tab-progress"
          flex="2"
          mode="normal" value="0"
          xbl:inherits="value=tab-progress"/>
        <xul:label class="tab-text" xbl:inherits="value=label,accesskey,crop,disabled" flex="2"/>
        <xul:hbox>
          <xul:spacer flex="1"/>
          <xul:toolbarbutton class="tabs-closebutton showhover" style="margin: 0; padding: 0"/>
        </xul:hbox>
      </xul:stack>
      <xul:toolbarbutton class="tabs-closebutton always" style="padding: 0"/>
      <xul:hbox class="tab-drag-indicator-right"/>
</xul:hbox>
      <xul:hbox class="tab-endcap" xbl:inherits="selected"/>  <!-- hack for Charamel Theme -->    
    </content>


including the tab-middle hbox.

I already have made this modification by the tabmix version from chob and it works... I guess the updated themes in the future will also have this element to point their throbbers (tab-middle) and this solution will able more flexibility to themers.

Of course there is a problem cause this modification will stop throbber to work with versions 1.0.*. But I guess the tendence for users that use the newest version from TabMix will also use the newest from Firefox.

Thanks

yours is 58kb? did your improve it? ( dont understand this bit )

"no, supposedly hemiolaSUN found a new person and the project is bein transfered to him but news has come"

Well he has. but no body stops you to continue his work :D infact he has mention that number of times. And the new maintainer has already stated that he will mainly do bug fix only. No more new features will be added in ( which is a rather good thing , i suppose )
