those close tab buttons on each tab have been annoying me because i keep accidentally closing a tab when i just want to select it.

this applies to flock, firefox trunk nightlies, and firefox 2.0 branch nightlies starting march 2.

so i figured out the code for getting rid of close tab buttons on each tab, but i don't know how to add it into the chrome. it's just css.

Code: Select all
@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);

*[class^="tabx-tab-close-button"], .tab-close-button {
  display: none !important;
}

are they not gonna have an option to have a close button on each tab or not? thats gonna piss me off royaly. glad to see your on the case.

as to my idea, thats cool i am just trying to think of things to add to make your extension unique and thus more people download.

Oh and desertfox use this extension to find out how to remove the close button on the tabs https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/m ... on=firefox

@Recall:
ok. thanks. if i figure it out, i'll have 0.3.3 out before wednesday. i have school, you know :P

@uncle spellbinder:
sure. what doesn't work on the trunk?
i haven't used any of the recent trunk builds because they seem to be really buggy according to the red list.

my builds:
Flock 0.5.12:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060224 Flock/0.5.12

the last Firefox 2.0 pre-alpha nightly without tabbed browsing changes:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060301 Firefox/1.5 - Build ID:2006030105

Close button on the tab (red X) and in customize, there's a new tab button (I placed mine to the right of the home button).

superT 0.3.3 has been released!
New features:
<li>removed useless "Reload tab bar menuitem"
<li>added pref for Fx 1.5.0.x and below to remove close tab button
<li>added: remove close tab buttons from each tab if applicable (no pref yet)

gotta go. i'll be back to update the official site and this thread's title tomorrow.

and it's compatible with Firefox 1.0 to 2.0 and Flock 0.4 to 1.0 (at least for install.rdf) :)

i just realized that the pref for the close tab button doesn't actually do anything, because the bindings.xml file that i have overrides the overlay.

well, i'm just going to remove the close tab button (for firefox 1.5.0.x and below) without a pref.
if you need to close a tab, just set one of the tab clicking options to "close tab"
and ctrl+w also closes tabs.
a mouse shortcut and a keyboard shortcut should be sufficient.

superT 0.3.5 should be out sometime this evening after i get home from school.
i'm skipping 0.3.4 because i don't like the number 4. :P
it's noon right now, where i am.
0.3.5 will include the following changes:
<li>add menuitem to tools menu for "superT Options"
if you want to get rid of it, add the following code to your userChrome.css or stylish:
Code: Select all
menuitem[label="superT Options"] {
  display: none !important;
}

or get MenuManipulator or get Menu Editor :)
<li>remove useless pref for close tab button until i figure out how to make it actually
work.
<li>make the "remove close tab buttons on each tab" a hidden feature until i figure out how to make it a pref.
to activate it in 0.3.5, add to following code to your userChrome.css
better yet, if you have the Stylish extension, add the following code as a style :)
Code: Select all
import("chrome://tabclicking/content/noclosebuttons.css");


alright, that should do. i'm still taking feature requests, but only bug fixes will be added to the current plan for 0.3.5.

development won't always be this fast. i'm just trying to get these features done and then, i'll take a break from development unless any bugs pop up.

superT 0.3.5 has been released!

i haven't had time to update its homepage on my blog to reflect the latest changes.

Latest Improvements:

<li>Temporarily removed useless close button pref
<li>New feature: No close buttons on each tab
To activate this, add the following code either to userChrome.css, or, if you have Stylish, as a style:
Code: Select all
@import "chrome://tabclicking/content/noclosebuttons.css";

glad you like it! :)

i'm done with 0.3.5.1, which simply adds a menu item in the Tools menu for superT Options, but I can't release it because I'm at school right now and don't have access to files.

I'm busy tonight, so 0.3.5.1 will be released tomorrow.

0.3.6 will fix the following known issues:
<li>'Open tabs to the right of current tab' should be able to instant apply
<li>‘Restore Defaults’ should restore defaults for ‘General’ features too

btw, in the beginning, over half of the superT code used was from other little tabbed browsing extensions.
almost all of the code i'm adding now is my own original code, including that 'remove close tab buttons on each tab' code. :)
