Throbber Button 1.1 Requires Restart
by Aaron Pauls
Throbber Button enables you to click on the Activity Indicator (throbber), which takes you to the web site of your choice. This site can be configured from the Addons Extension Options screen.
About this Add-on
You can now open multiple sites at once by separating each URL with the pipe (|) character. As before, you can specify where you want the site(s) to open: either in background tabs, foreground tabs, or new windows.
Note: A similar feature was present in Firefox 1.5, but no longer exists in Firefox 2.0 and later. Throbber Button brings this feature back.
Following default tab settings, left-clicking will open in the current tab and middle-clicking will open in a new tab. Right-clicking will open the additional URL in a new tab, if you have it set. Otherwise, it will fall back to displaying the toolbar customize menu.
You can install to Firefox 1.5, but some features will be disabled until upgrading to Firefox 2.0.
I'm always looking for feedback to make Throbber Button better. If you have a suggestion, please tell me here.
