miniT adds a few tab related functions. [Firefox, SeaMonkey, Songbird (partly)]

- docShell.allow* attributes can be changed via tab context menu. [not in Songbird]
- Tabs can be switched by turning the mouse wheel on the tab bar.
- Bookmarks are opened in background if browser.tabs.loadInBackground is set to true. Was replaced by the new core pref browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground.
- New tabs can be opened by double clicking on any tab.
- Tabs can be dragged. If dropped within the tab bar the tabs will be reordered, otherwise only the url is dropped as text/x-moz-url, text/html, or text/unicode. Firefox 1.5 has backported this functionality
- Tabs open relative (next) to the current tab, if minit.open_tabs_relative is true.
- Included fixes for bug 264009, bug 399113, and bug 400491.

Other Variants
miniT (tabscroll): Only tab scrolling.
Firefox, Tab Mix, and Tabbrowser Extensions base their tab reordering code on miniT.

Configurations:
Code: Select all
prefs.js: (use about:config to edit these) [requires restart]

// Disable dblclick handler
user_pref("minit.dblclick", false);

// Enable the docShell menu
user_pref("minit.docShell", true);

// Open tabs relative (next) to current tab
user_pref("minit.open_tabs_relative", true);

// Disable tabscroll feature
user_pref("minit.tabscroll", false);

userChrome.css:

/* Hide the docShell menu */
#miniT-docShell, #sep-miniT-docShell {display:none}

Notable Firefox Tweaks:
Code: Select all
prefs.js:

// Open bookmarks in the background
user_pref("browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground", true);

userChrome.css:

/* Don't let tab labels receive focus */
tab {-moz-user-focus: ignore !important;}

/* Hide the drop indicator */
.tab-drop-indicator-bar {display:none !important}

Changes:
20110327: [miniT, miniT (tabscroll)]
- Added support for Firefox 4 dropped support for Firefox 3.5

Brilliant. I just installed it; about to restart my browser. I advise you to try and get it listed:
http://texturizer.net/firebird/extensions/submit.html

2) Tabs can be switched by scrolling on the tab bar.

How does this feature I work? I just restarted my browser, but I can't switch tabs via scrolling with my mousewheel. :( Am I confused? :?

This is great :D As I hate the complexity of TBE this extension just fills almost all my tab releated need.
Here is a suggestion: Ctrl + -> and Ctrl + <- will switch to previous or next tab. Ctrl + (down arrow) - close current tab; Ctrl + (up arrow) - new tab. Not especcialy to use these key bindings. And it will be good if you bring some small window with configs.

Nuh uh. Those are for switching tabs already, in the core, and right now, it's the only way to do so from the keyboard in *nix.

Nice work. I installed the extension mainly for the moving tabs ability. That's great.

How can I change the Bookmarks back to open in foreground? Browser.tabs.loadInBackground is set to false in about:config and Open links in background is unchecked in Options>Advanced. When I middle click a Bookmark now, it opens in the background.

How about when moving a tab to display a tiny border betwene two tabs indicating where the selected tab will be placed. This can be possibly done by adding border-left to the previous tab of where the selected will be placed :-s

Hmm, if All-in-One Gestures is installed its "Scroll wheel in tab bar" function might interfere, otherwise no idea...

Is planned, but not likely soon. For the time being its better to open the .jar file and remove the functions not wanted.

Bah, I was using an object to read the prefs only available in pre 2002-09-18 builds or in Optimoz and Quicknote...

that is a truly awful suggestion for a short description. they're meant to be about 10 words, and should not include such useless fluff as "this extension ..."

also the comma after "button" is rather dubious. it's the button that lets you do something, not the act of the extension adding a button.

I have Tabbrowser Preferences installed...it's the only extension I have that directly relates to tabs.

I love this three features \:D/

Could it be that dragging tabs to a folder created .url links?

Yup, tabs are now also draggable as text/x-moz-url and text/html. (This was orginally in, but removed since I had previously some problems which I can't reproduce anymore)

Ok, is there something in the JavaScript console, or happens anything else while scrolling?
