undoclosetab allows recently closed tabs to be reopened. [Firefox]

This extension adds gBrowser.undoRemoveTab(); which can be invoked through the tabbar context menu, browser context menu, middle click on the close button, or by pressing Ctrl+Shift+F12 (Cmd+Shift+F12 on MacOS) which can be changed with the keyconfig extension.

Note:
Firefox has since version 2 a built-in 'Undo Close Tab' (part of nsSessionStore which can be disabled in Firefox 3 and lower by adding browser.sessionstore.enabled to about:config).
If SessionStore is enabled (and browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo is not 0) this extension will only add additional UI hooks and a gBrowser.undoRemoveTab > undoCloseTab wrapper.

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

// How many tabs to cache
user_pref("undoclosetab.cache", 10);

// Where to add the tab menu. 0 is first, 13 is after Close Tab in Firefox 3.6
user_pref("undoclosetab.tabmenu_position", 6);

// Handle middle click on TabsToolbar even if an element has set the .onclick property
user_pref("undoclosetab.TabsToolbar.checkOnclick", false);

userChrome.css:

/* Hide Undo Close Tab in tab bar context menu */
#tab-undoclosetab {display:none}

/* Hide Undo Close Tab in browser context menu */
#undoclosetab, #sep-undoclosetab {display:none}

Changes:
20151105:
- Changed the imported .dtd so it works in Firefox 42 (also restores menuitem translation)
- Changed code to not try legacy code if gMultiProcessBrowser is true
- Added undoclosetab.TabsToolbar.checkOnclick pref to determine if the target element should be checked for an .onclick property
- Added multiprocessCompatible

Full Changelog.

Is there a userChrome.css hack to remove the "undo close tab" from the context menu? I just like to middleclick the close button.

probably not is my guess... i poked through the jar besides testing it on FF/Moz/Netscape and nothing there (to me) to be strange unless elements are renamed....

Only trouble i had was with a FF bug concerning eventListeners not starting/finishing ... which was solved by switching the order of some extensions in the overlay.rdf....

Just for completeness...the extensions which interacted strangely with Undo Close Tab were:
SessionSaver (rue's rewrite)
showfailedURL
Toolbar Enhancements 0.13 (the combined stop/reload button didn't work)

As i said solved by playing around with the overlay.rdf in my profile folder....

Nah, I meant that it might break because I won't test it in SeaMonkey before releasing an update.

Sounds a bit like Bug 174320 actually.

...and it only has 4 votes. Everybody get voting now and we can get rid of it! This bug is probably responsible for the majority of extension "incompatibilities", and is very annoying.

Another cool extension I've been looking for... though it doesn't seem to be working. I can see key_undoclosetab in my keyconfig list, I set it to accel+shift+Z, no dice. I also can't seem to find Undo Close Tab any menus anywhere... (I do have SessionSaver 0.2d installed, btw. )

undoclosetab 20040430
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8

any clues?

actually, sometimes Undo Close Tab is there in the context menu, but it's always greyed out. hmm...?

er. well, yes, I did imagine I'd have to close a tab first. That's what I mean -- it remains greyed out, even after closing a tab.
