Thank you very much to the developer for their work on this.
Though most of us here vehemently disagree with the "about this add-on" section's description of the "switch to tab" feature as "great."
If I'm dumb enough to take two different tabs to the same url by mistake, that's my problem. But when I am deliberately attempting to take a second tab to the same page and that "switch to tab" function prevents the not-very-awesome-at-that-moment-bar from doing so...? Remedy: 1) Castrate whoever developed the "switch to tab" function. 2) Remove that useless and incredibly annoying function from this and all future versions of Firefox. 3) Repeat step 1 as necessary...
MichaelPaul's idea is very clever, however there is another add-on designed to completely disable the "switch to tab" feature, available at: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/switch-to-tab-no-more/
Thank you!

Awesome extension. Just what I want.
Here is a guide on what to do:
1 Open a new tab, paste & go about:config into the address bar.
2 If needed, click the I’ll be careful, I promise button
3 Filter for extension.switchToTabBlacklist.blacklist
4 Double-click the entry
5 Remove the existing value and paste in [".*"] (make sure to include the brackets)
6 Close the tab. switch-to-tab feature is now OFF
shame the extension doesn't do this automatically. Also a shame Fire Fox has become so awful. It used to be the best browser around but with all those updates it only got worse and worse. I wish Fire Fox would stop sucking so hard.

Fixes A Poorly Thought Out 'Feature' Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what it needs to do, and has no issues that I can tell. A wonderful addon that shouldn't need to exist, but does anyway, until Mozilla gets off their ass and lets us configure this annoying 'feature'.

A sad ritual Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Having to install this plugin on each of my systems for sanity's sake has become a sad ritual for me. Five stars but not a happy bunny because there should be no need for this plugin to exist; it demonstrates a deficiency of the base browser.

@beerbuster, since the modified bootstrap.js lines 42 and 46 are essentially the same as editing the about:config value for extension.switchToTabBlacklist.blacklist to [".*"] then there's really no need for the gymnastics; also the change can be made directly by creating a user.js file in the profile directory (kb.mozillazine.org/User.js_file) which should read: user_pref("extension.switchToTabBlacklist.blacklist", "[\".*\"]");

Default blacklist to .* please Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hello,
Thanks for this useful addon, but can't you set the default blacklist to .*?
I guess everybody change, why maps.google.com?

Any chance of this must-have extension being bumped for compatibility for Firefox 8 stable?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is fantastic. It is simple to use, effective, and does what it says. I changed the blacklist to [".*"] as others have in order to totally (and very effectively) disable the switch to tab feature.

Worth noting: the blacklist was reset to the default when I updated to FF 7, but that was a quick fix once I realized what was wrong.

Glad you like it John!

The bug you mention is actually due to a bug in Firefox. I've reported it and may put out 1.2 to work around the problem.

Well, it does what it's supposed to do! Nice job.

yessss! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I finally got rid of the crappy SwitchToTab, adding [".*"]
Thanks, dev!

Brilliant! I can now open multiple different google maps without the flipping switch to tab feature trying to stop me. Not to metnion wikipedia pages, bbc news stories..... If I find out who it is I will buy this developer a drink.

Works as stated. Would love it though if you could also block autocompleting with the URL from existing tabs.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works fine to completely disable switch to tab as said earlier. An option to completely disable switching would be nice so it wouldn't compare url-s needlessly.
A simple gui would be welcome to. With a checkbox for completely disabling and a textbox for the regex expressions.

Perfect! Add [".*"] to blacklist and annoying "Switch to Tab" is gone forever. Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).

A very good idea, it does what it has to do, without unnecessary things (GUI is often bigger than the code that does what the addon does)
