Need a few more options for your Firefox tabs?  Twanno’s Tab Clicking Options extension for Firefox should do the trick.  With the Tab Clicking Options extension it is possible to set various actions to different clicking events on the tab bar or a tab in the Firefox browser.

  • Double clicking
  • Clicking with middle mouse button
  • Left clicking with control-key (or meta-key on Mac) pressed
  • Left clicking with alt-key pressed
  • Left clicking with shift-key pressed
  • And the actions which you can choose from are:

  • Open a new tab
  • Reload the tab
  • Reload all tabs
  • Close tab
  • Close other tabs
  • Close all tabs
  • Duplicate Tab
  • Duplicate Tab in New Window
  • Undo Close Tab (only in Firefox 2.0 beta or with extensions)

  • Bookmark All Tabs (not in Firefox 1.0)
  • No Action
  • This is no doubt that Tab Clicking Options makes it easier to work with your tabs in a number of different ways.  Also, because I know somebody will bring it up – Tab Mix Plus will also do a lot of these same things too. So if you want an alternative – there you go.  (via Download Squad)

    Bonus: Via Twanno’s Firefox extensions page you can also pick up his Duplicate Tab add-on for the browser.  It allows you to clone a tab along with its history.

Assign Keywords to Search Engines

Now this extension does add a lot of functionality when it comes to searching. The SearchWords extension for Firefox allows you to assign keywords to your search engines inside of the browser.

Assign keywords to your search engines for quick and easy access to all of your search engines without using the search bar and without having to switch from your current search engine. To use, add keywords to your search engines via the search engine manager and then simply type ‘keyword searchterm’ into the address bar and search away!

This gives you another quick way to do your searches.
