I am so sorry this is not compatible with the latest version of Firefox. It would be great if you would update it! It's so useful!

Here is one that does work in FF4 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

OK, the old version on this page don't work any more on FF4. But don't be sad.
Here is a link to a new version which I installed on FireFox 4.0 final release and it seems to be working perfectly. I love it. I've been saved!

I also cannot install the beta with FF 3.6.13.
I get:
Firefox could not install the file at


because: Download error

This is a very useful addon, that should blatantly be firefox's default behaviour.

This is possibly one of the most useful, undiscovered extension for any tabaholic!

Ever been clicking through tabs, then wanted to go back a page only to find you've opened a new tab and doesn't have any back history? This addon solves this problem! Try it out!

this plugin doesn't work when I middle click on the back button. A new tab opens with the previous page, but no history.

I used this so much on Epiphany...Is someone able to implement it?

I've uploaded a version that works with Firefox 4, and you don't even have to restart after you install it:

eyaler, thank you very much!
Complete instructions to duplicate the functionality:
1. Install userChromeJS v. 1.2 extension from userchromejs.mozdev.org, changing it to work on FF 4.
2. Put the code from the link pointed by eyaler in <your profile>/chrome/userChrome.js & delete the line "LOG ("copyHistory");"
3. Restart FF & enjoy

How to make it work with newer Firefox (UPDATED)

1. Download the addon as a normal file (don't install it)
2. Change its extension from xpi to zip.
3. Unpack the archive to a folder
4. Browse the folder and look for install.rdf
5. Edit the file with notepad
6. Change the line where you see "maxVersion" from:
7. Save the file
8. Repack the folder with zip archiver or winrar
9. Change its extension back to .xpi
10. Drag & drop the addon on firefox window to install it
OR (if your browser won't let you do this)
11. From the menubar select File > Open file and select the addon

I Really Miss It ! This is the addon I miss the most after updating to 3.6.3. I wish the developer would consider updating it! It WAS a 5 star addon.

Bug 18808 says this works with FF 3.6, but the addons page refuses to install it. Please change the version limit in the add-on to allow the installation.

Love it!
Could be better if it worked when ctrl+clicking the "previous" and "next" buttons (opening previous page in new tab)

Blank tab has history Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I second Dawudd's review. One problem caused by the "bug" is that when using with Tab Mix Plus, if I replace the last closed tab with blank tab, then open a new tab, it does not replace the blank tab. After reverting to 1.0.6, the problem goes away.
