I would like to open links in the background, and bookmarks in the foreground on a middle click, i cannot do this since open links in background, and browser.tabs.loadInBackground seem to be linked together.

ctrl+scroll is used to zoom text, what about alt+scroll?

I would like to have this so I can change tabs without moving the cursor up to the tabbar.

Is already taken for "Scroll line by line" and I rather not overwrite this behavior (at least not until I've added some prefs). The other (usable) modifiers also seem to be taken..., use an extension with wheel rocker instead.

miniT doesn't provide any prefs by itself.
If you don't like it open chrome/minit.jar/content/minit.xul (in your profile; .jar is like .zip) and remove lines below "// boomarks opened in tabs".

Wheel rocker is what I want? Oh, I didn't know that!

Oh it is very lucky. When I use my ISP DNS Server, I can't open the page. But when I use a free dns Server I can open it. ;/

Hello,

I can't sort my tabs. I don't know why. Tab scrolling with the mouse wheel und other things work very well, but when I want change the position of one tab, it doesn't work.

Can anybody confirm it?

Darn, I was able to reproduce it in
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040128 Firebird/0.8.0+
but not in
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040120 Firebird/0.8.0+

I'll check it. (I see when it happens, but not why yet)

This started between
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040123 Firebird/0.8.0+
and
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040124 Firebird/0.8.0+

The way this error happens indicates that it might be a core issue... filed bug 232736 (...stupid form... :roll: ), waiting for its outcome....

Fixed in
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040131 Firebird/0.8.0+

It should be possible to add support (from either side) to do this, but nothing is ready yet.
so it sounds like you're aware of this then. i've uncovered some problems this causes.

if you reorder tabs, and then set the homepage with the "Use Current Pages" function in options, they are saved in the original creation order, not as they are currently ordered. likewise, if you create a bookmark, and save the tabs to a folder, they are ordered by creation, not the new order.

not really major problems, but can definitely cause some confusion.

functionally, everything else in 0.7.0.5 works fine for me, and i love tab reordering. i also have sessionsaver 02d dev d1 nightly 6 installed, with no conflicts. makes a killer combo. nice work.

There are likely more... If it would be possible to "really" reorder the tabs then this wouldn't happen, but I wasn't able to get it working properly...

To change this, miniT would need to overlay the option screen also, but the issue seems to minor to do that.

This should be changeable, I'll look into it for next version.

Dammit, Firebird crashed again!!!

I'm sick of this, Dorando, can you please make a version of miniT-tabscroll which assigns tab scrolling to a rediculous key combo (for example, Ctrl-Alt-Shift-Page Up/Down) so it doesn't conflict with anything, but still impliments tab scrolling that won't crash my browser, AND let me scroll across loading tabs?

miniT-tabscroll already does this, only it requires the mouse to be in position to work. The reason you can use virtually any keycombo, is because I will be assigning the function back to the mouse, only with the program I'm using, I will be able to do it anywhere within the program's window. I just need to be able to scroll my tabs without the browser dying on me and losing my favicons AGAIN!

Every time the browser crashes, or closes abnormally (ie, end task from Task Manager) it empties the cache, which deletes among anything that may have been bad, every icon which was bound to a bookmark... the Favicons.

Well TychoQuad, seems I was thinking overly complicated....

New version uploaded. Switching tabs via keyboard shortcuts should now always work. gBrowser.moveTabTo(aTab, aIndex) now provided. Reordering backend is now available as seperate extension (tablib) but is not required by miniT.
