Need to mark some tabs as being more important than others? Firefox has the solution for you. Important Tabs, a great new add-on for Firefox will let you mark some tabs as more important than others. This can really come in handy when you need to close all your tabs except a few more that you might still need.
The Drag Button add-on for Firefox will give you more toolbar buttons to add into Firefox, giving you the ability to drag, minimize and more from the click of a button. Once installed, you can unleash these new customizing options by simple customizing your own toolbars from within Firefox.
Looking for a Firefox tab extension that does a little ‘bit of everything? Look no further than Tab Utilities.
This add-on for Firefox really is your proverbial utility knife when it comes to controlling, editing or optimizing your browser tabs for better performance.
Sometimes we all go a little tab-happy when it comes to our Internet browsing ways. You might be browsing around, one lazy Friday afternoon, and before you know it – you have twenty open tabs and then decide, "hey, maybe I should get back to work!". Well, have no fear, because I can get all your tabs closed in one click or two.
Rather than hunting down the X to close your current tab, what if all you had to do was wish upon a star, and then right click anywhere on the tab you wish to shut down? I will let you know how to get that done, without the need of the “wishing upon a star” part.
There are many extensions out there that allow you to tweak your tabs, however not many will let you close multiple tabs all in one swift movement. The Multiple Tab Handler extension for Firefox does that and a lot more.
The idea here is simple, to provide the user with any easier way to handle multiple tabs at once. This is so you can highlight more than one tab, then reload them, close them and so on. Once the Multiple Tab Handler add-on is installed, when you press the mouse button and drag over tabs (you should wait a while to start drag after you press down the button!), they are selected. After you release the button, the popup to choose command will be shown.
Multiple tabs can be dragged and moved if you select multiple tabs by Ctrl-click or Shift-click before you start to drag. Once you have selected the tabs you want to work with, here are some of the actions you can take:
- Close selected tabs
- Close not-selected tabs
- Reload selected tabs
- Duplicate selected tabs
- Move selected tabs to a new window
- Bookmark selected tabs
For those of us who move backwards and forwards through multiple tabs all day long, this extension for Firefox is well worth downloading. You can pickup the Multiple Tab Handler add-on for Firefox on the Firefox Add-ons site.
The Back to Close add-on for Firefox adds a simple ergonomic feature to Firefox I am sure a lot of people will enjoy. When you are browsing via the browser or via a tab, if there is no history to go “back” to via the back button – it displays a “close” button instead.
This simple change adds functionality back to the toolbar. The extension also works with mouse gestures and and by configuring the back button on your mouse (if you have one) to the Alt + Left Arrow keyboard combination. Users can also decide whether to show the toolbar icon via the options button in the add-on manager.
Pardon me as I put on my fake surprise pants on… wait a minute, you mean clicking on Firefox’s close button actually closes the tab your on? After you have looked at as many Firefox add-ons as I have some of them really catch you off guard. Yes, Captain Obvious – a fast way to close your tabs is to hit Firefox’s close button!
Reading a ‘bit more about the extension for Firefox, it starts to make a ‘bit more sense:
Do you find it annoying to have to click on the small cross to close a tab ? Now with Fast Close Tabs you can just click on the upper right cross from the window to close the active tab. No more need to precisely point at the tab close cross.
Thank you Fast Close Tabs for allowing me to start my Monday off with a giggle.
Want to close the current tab in Firefox 2? Well here is a simple – yet easy way to get that done. All you need to do is hit the keyboard combination of Ctrl+W. That will close the current tab you are viewing and allow you to quickly get out of there.
Now this might be handy if you have folks looking over you shoulder, or if you boss quickly comes in the room and you don’t want them to see you are listening to the Web Hosting Show podcast.
