Double Click Closes Tab 0.27.1-signed.1-signed Requires Restart
by Mingyi Liu
The fastest (yet safe) addon to close tab using mouse only! Close any tab by double clicking the tab. Close current tab by triple click anywhere on the page. Optionally middle click or double right click on page to close tab.
About this Add-on
Why is it that when one opens a tab, all it takes is to click on a link inside page; but when one closes a tab, one has to go to the tab bar and find the little 'x' button to close it (if one just uses mouse)?
This addon brings the much needed relief for the mouse addicts :) You can:
- Double click anywhere on any tab to close it (no need to find 'x' button, which might not even be there)
- Triple click anywhere on webpage to close the current tab. Optionally, double right click or middle click to close the current tab. For the adventurous, double left click to close is allowed; for the super-conservative, you can disable closing tab by click on page altogether.
Don't forget to check out my "TableTools2" extension that lets you sort/filter/search/copy/rearrange/chart/combine/compare/more any HTML tables in FF, or the "Fastest Search" extension that saves your time when doing search, select-n-search, copy/paste, open links/save images!
Feel free to email/post suggestions/bug reports. Due to limited time, I may or may not have time to respond. Sorry if that's the case.
DCCT v0.27 made sure that DCCT gets notified before TMP gets to swallow the event, so that TMP users can use DCCT without issue.
