I'd like to open my home page in a new tab and focused. Luckily Tab utilities has an option for that: extensions.tabutils.openHomepageInTab = true

When I use home button it is working but when I use alt+home hotkey (which I prefer using instead of button) my homepage loads in current tab. Is there any solution? Thanks in advance...

No solution yet. Please wait for next release.

Excellent extension! The faviconize/pin tab feature exceeds my App Tabs extension in usability. I will try it out asap!
Please raise the maxVersion to 3.7a3pre. Thanks for developing this extension! 你辛苦啦!

感谢支持!
The pin tab feature is implemented in an entirely different way in Tab Utilities than in App Tabs. The pinned tabs are hidden from the view and what you see are buttons instead. It is inspired by Strata Home Tab extension.

I see! Fascinating! The main advantage that App Tabs still holds is that the user can drag the pinned tabs, like in Chrome. If you could implement this in Tab Utilities, I would gladly recommend that users of App Tabs switch over to Tab Utilities ;)

Also, I found your Load Tabs Progressively experimental extension. I think that the features of that extension could be combined with Reload Tabs Progressively and the progressive session restore on startup feature of BarTab quite effectively. If you could integrate this combination of features in Tab Utilities, it would be quite convenient.

Of course, we are all busy people, so feel neither obligated nor rushed to implement these features. Thanks again for creating this outstanding small extension! Even considering the settings taken from about:config, I'm quite impressed.

As you know, I don't want Tab Utilities to grow faster in size, so draging to pin is not considered by now. :) In fact the main disadvantage of Pin tab feature in TU is that some tab-related extensions cannot work properly on pinned tabs because they're not real tabs.

Thank you for trying the experimental Load Tabs Progressively!
Yeah, that's my object. When LTP reaches that state, it will be integreated into Tab Utilities.

LTP is the main feature I'm working on. I have got ideas to load restored tabs(and diverted windows) progressively and it will be released soon.

Ctrl + Shift + H or Context menu on the tab bar.

Load Tabs Progressively 0.4 has been released. Both progressive reload and progressive session restore are supported.

Is it possible to pin a tab between sessions? If I faviconize, say, Google Reader - how can I keep it pinned between sessions. Whenever I try this at the moment, I lose it upon reopening.

Or, do I have to also use PermaTabs Mod?

My apologies if this has already been asked - if so, I couldn't find it.

I've set New Tab Homepage to my homepage, yet I had to disable "Reuse blank tabs" bit so that none were ticked otherwise it kept trying to do it in the new tab I opened even if I middle clicked it.

I'm not quite clear about what you said. What is your expected output?

I'm sorry, but no such feature in TU. Maybe PermaTabs Mod can help you.
