Showcase 0.9.5.8 works great with Firefox 10 (ESR) and 11 by just disabling its cache option Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After updating from Firefox 3.6.28 to 10 (ESR) I got many crashes (also for Firefox 11) and after a view hours I was so disappointed that I just restored my system from the hard drive images I made before.

But I read Firefox 3.6.28 is end-of-life and therefore I tried Firefox 10 (ESR) again and enabled one plugin after the other and located that Showcase caused these many crashes.

I asked Josep for help and he told me this is a Firefox bug, NOT a Showcase issue.

To make Showcase working fine with Firefox 10 (ESR) too, you just go to Showcase options, select the advanced tab and DISABLE the topmost cache option.
Enjoy!

This is Firefox 10 (ESR):

FINALLY I found the cause for FF_9 crashes, puh. I even went through the ORDEAL of creating a new profile, exporting / importing most settings, the whole spiel, and now - by happenstance, stumbled across the root cause: turning on thumbnail caching caused the crashes, and Mariner's & rguer45's comments confirmed my suspicion that I'm not alone out there.

One of my essential addons. Has been rock-solid for years. 4-stars due to crisis described above. I'm even over the fact that so far Panorama and Showcase complement each other (rather than one doing the whole job). Thanks and much awaiting a FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIX. (but again: HUGE sigh of relief to have found the cause-of-crash)

had I only known earlier..............;-/

For me it's not only "thumbnail caching". Showcase crashes Firefox 9.0.1 every time I try to start my browser... :-(
Nevertheless 5 stars, because I loved it in previous versions and I'm positive, you will fix it soon. :)

Brilliant, but with no groups support, I can't use it Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Panorama/Groups is limited visually, and this would be a nice enhancement. But, 50 tabs opening at once is harsh.

On firefox 9.0.1, "Enable thumbnail caching" will make firefox crashing frequently.
Please check it.
Thank you.

Panorama support please Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Generally very well designed (bug-free, decent visually, does everything it sets out to, plus a few unexpected surprises like double-click to open new tab). But it doesn't support Firefox 4's Panorama - it doesn't distinguish between different tab groups so what was neatly organised now swamps the showcase views with 30 or so tabs so you can't distinguish one thumbnail from another. Better if you have separate views for each group, and/or colour code the different groups (like for windows) - then I would give you 5 stars

In Firefox 3 this was a useful add-on with a nice range of display options (tab, sidebar, window) but in Firefox 4 it clashes with the new built-in feature Panorama. It hijacks the down arrow on the tab bar, preventing the display of the Tab Groups menu, and its functionality now seems redundant. Perhaps it could be modified so as to work in conjunction with Panorama and to offer complementary functionality.

SMALL issue Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The plug in works Great but in FF4 it erases one option from the small arrow besides the tabs( TABS FROM OTHER COMPUTERS). And if you don't have the menu bar visible - there's no way to call the option !!. would it be possible to add to the showcase ????check https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/803826

TheTech438 is right. To make your add-on a lot more useful and make me want to use it over Firefox's own built in feature, can you please add a search bar to it? It would be nice to be able to search any open tabs. Thanks!!

You can get a feature very like this that is built into Firefox. You can see the tab thumbs and close buttons, there is also a tab search. YOU DO NOT NEED THIS ADDON TO DO THAT! All you have to do is go to about:config, click I'll be carefull, then in the filter put "alltabs" then the first one will be "browser.allTabs.previews" right click and hit toggle to change this to true. Then were you would usually see the list all tabs button will be a button with four squares, click this to see all tabs. Enjoy!


Note: I put five stars even tho I have not used it.

It certainly allows you to see what tabs/windows are active and you can easily close the ones you don't want without cycling through them. Kudos.

Think it's ready for updating? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been using "Showcase" for quite some time and it's proven a very useful add-on. Very good choice for monitoring multiple tabs, quickly finding the one you need, but most importantly: it is fast and easy on the resources. However, with the release of FF4.0b4 the Mozilla team has integrated a "Group Your Tabs" feature. It is quite an interesting idea which, in my opinion, should be explored further. The main problems with it are quite the opposite of those things mentioned above: it's hard on the PC. But since the developers have provided such an opportunity I see no reason not to use it. By combining the "Showcase" and the "Group Your Tabs" views, this add-on could reach the next step in it's evolution.

Every Election Day I sit and try to update EVERY Politics window every few seconds. Now, what I really need (and I suspect a few others) is a system that'll show 2-20 (if you have the space) windows and treat every one as live, with updates of one after the next

Sorry if this is OT, but I'd love to see an extension like this for Chrome.
