    Middle clicking on the tab title isn’t easy enough? I guess if you only have a two button (or one button in the case of an Apple) mouse,

      Well, to tell you the truth – I often forget that my scroll wheel is a button too. Feels odd to click it. :)

      If I didn’t have a scroll wheel and an easy way to middle click (opening up links in new tabs, without taking me off the page, besides closing tabs), I’d probably be committing suicide.

    hi! I just read this post and thought to tell you that instead of sing these many add-ons ,,
    “TAB MIX PLUS” is a great option.. It includes almost all of these features…..

    HOpe It will help !!

      That too. :) Although with 4.0 peeking it’s head out soon, I’m still awaiting the beta that works on it.

    BarTab, Colorful Tabs, Ctrl-Tab, Firefox Showcase and TabMixPlus are my favorites that I’ve accumulated over the years. Showcase and Ctrl-Tab do the same thing except one can do it by keyboard and one by mouse (I switch between these two to reduce strain on my hands)

    TabMixPlus is my fave because I can double click on tabs to close and hover over them for a sec to view them. There are countless customizations you can do with TabMixPlus

    BarTab really good also if you have a lot of tabs open a lot, it keeps them from hogging your memory.The others are self-explanatory, but also very appealing/useful. :0)
