Is there an extension that adds scroll buttons, when the open tabs span past the length of tab bar and allows to scroll arround.

The mini-t scroll only allows for scrolling tabs with mousewheel, but doesn't enable scroll buttons and doesn't accomodated for tabs spanning past the length of tab bar.

If I have a particular web page open on a tab, but then try to reopen the same URL via a bookmark or something, TBE would activate the existing tab rather than open a new copy of it. Are there any other extensions which do so?

what do i need to change to this code in minit to let a doubleclick close a tab, instead of opening a new one ?

Code: Select all
if(!(window.dorando & 1)) gBrowser.mTabContainer.ondblclick = function(e){if(e.button != 2)BrowserOpenTab();}


i tried changing BrowserOpenTab to BrowserRemoveTab and that didnt work :(

sboulema, try looking at the link I posted two posts before yours. It is an extension to determine the behavior of double clicking on a tab.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before.
Has anyone tried out the Tab Double Click extension at http://www.twannos-extensions.tk/.
You can set the action for double-click on a tab to Reload Tab, Close Tab, Open New Tab, Duplicate Tab or Do Nothing. It works great for me. Hope this is helpful.

Just installed it, works like a charm for me. That was the last thing i was missing since not installing TBE anymore.
Now i use: Duplicate Tab, BlankLast, FLST, Tabbrowser Preferences and Tab Double Click.
These together give me everything i used to use from TBE, but without slowing FF down as much.

See the discussion on this extension from the link in my post dated: "Posted: Thu 29th Jul 2004 8:59am"

I apologize if my requests have already been addressed earlier in this thread. I've searched a bit myself, but twenty-four pages wore me down.
Here are two minor features I liked in TBE, that I don't necessarily NEED, but find convenient:
- Bookmarks can be set to open in current tab, foreground, or background. With the TBP replacement, they open in current tab (or a new tab on middle click, with the focus depending on your TBP settings). How do I make it so that the bookmarks ALWAYS open in the foreground?
- Ctrl+T opens a new tab. How do I set this so that, by default, this new tab is a duplicate of the last selected tab?
Finally, I believe there is a bug in the Session Saver. If you close the window with all your session tabs, but you leave another Mozilla window (i.e., the Extensions window) open, the next time you run Firefox, Session Saver "forgets" your previous session.

Thanks. There's nothing that addresses the Session Saver bug though, right?

That Session Saver "bug" would be a godsend for me. I wish there was a simple way to clear out an old set of tabs/"sessions". I am not up to editing prefs files to do this. There should be a setting to clear this info.

Really good thread, was getting rather tired of all the Javascript bugs in TBE so time to ditch it... so far today I'm using:

BlankLast
miniT
TabPrefs
UndoCloseTab
Userchrome mod to get tabbar at bottom

miniT lets me open new tabs/link to the RIGHT of the CURRENT tab which is great, however there is one TBE feature I am still missing... when I close a tab I want it to take me to the LEFT tab instead of right.

Scrollable tab bar when tabs go past edge of screen would be nice as well :)

Anyone?
