Toolbar customization for the tab bar, coming to Firefox trunk soon if everything goes well:
Sweet, I can’t wait!
How will this work with tabs on the left…
AKA Tree Style Tabs
Are you going to build in support?
Wide Monitors are fantastic for this.
I don’t think there are plans to offer tabs on the left without an extension.
[…] z novinek p?ipravovaného Firefoxu 4.0 bude též p?izp?sobitelná lišta s panely. Ta se bude nov? chovat jako klasická lišta, takže p?jde snadno p?izp?sobovat a p?esouvat. […]
As someone who used to use the old builds of Firefox I’m very happy.
When tabs could be dragged like any other object the UI customizability felt like it took a HUGE step towards consistency. I hope these new patches have the same sort of effect!
Yeah, this is fantastic :) I don’t think I’ll change it a lot, but at least I’ll have some control, which is awesome.
Tabbed browsing is the area where most GUI-related addons could fall into.
Tree style tabs, tab previews, Colorful tabs, Tab mix plus…
Each introduces author’s unique coding style, their concepts and purpose overlap, introducing leaks and bugs when used several together more often than not.
Opera already offers vertical tab bar with page previews.
In Firefox, you’re left with 20 tabs to see at most to read at least a few letters of the tab title, even with a really large resolution display.
Besides proper session management it’s the basic old thing that must be addressed in FF4.0, finally!
That and a few UI hacks (autohide menubar+toolbar, drag-to-scroll, resizable textarea) are absolutely necessary, rather than arguing about yet another default theme modification or renaming menu items.
This is cool! I can’t wait to try it out! What options will be in it?
If this stays in Firefox 4, then my worries about not having the tabs nearest to the page is gone.
Looking forward to this feature…
[…] können nun auch in der Tab-Leiste platziert werden. Da Bilder bekanntlich mehr sagen, einfach dem Link […]
Hi. I really miss Aging Tabs in FF4
I browse on one or two topics in detail and like to keep track of the active [yellow] and recent [hot colours red- orange] tabs . Older are blue to easy-on-the-eyes green. Saturated pastels mostly. Functional and cheerful.
The grey-on-grey FF4 look reminds me of Microsoft Office shifting to silver-grey, bluegrey or dark grey theme choice , even overriding system theme. These are two of my greater disappointments since firing up Mosaic in the mists of history.
Aging tabs was great. Others miss it too. There is nothing else that does this job automatically.
How hard are these things to upgrade? Can you restore it?
Could it go into core FF4.3, say?
Could someone [someone other than me, I guess I mean] take over this add-on?
I’m with Adrian on this. I really really want this add-on. To the point where I might go back to my previous version of FF.
