Firefox Tabs

Category: SoftwareTeknovis @ 17:18

I came across three interesting settings for my tabs in Firefox today:

  • In previous versions new tabs were always added to the right hand side of the tab bar. I found this very useful, because if I read my tabs from left to right it was a sort of First-In, First-Out queue. However, I could not understand why the new tab location seemed to be a bit random in the latest version :| After some searching I found Why to embrace Firefox 3.6’s new-tab ethos, which explains the logic bethind the new tab location :o After reading this I decided to try it for a while longer, and at least I now know how to change this behaviour if I change my mind!
  • You can enable a very nice graphical tab switcher as described in Enable Visual Tab Switcher in Firefox 3.6.
  • You can enable thumbnail previews of tabs in Windows 7 as described in Unlock thumbnail previews for Firefox 3.6 on Windows 7.
