- Rated 3 out of 5by ELLIOTTCABLE, 4 months agoThis is better than the default behaviour, but unfortunately, it creates _new_ tabs for the same URLs — that is, page-state (text entered, panes opened, etc) are lost in the process. (This isn't the case in the original "Active Pinned Tabs" extension, so I'm not sure how that behaviour was lost in the process of forking ...)
Also, note to the author — you may want to enable GitHub Issues on your fork? 😅
Developer responseposted 4 months agoHi Elliott, thanks for the feedback! The original plugin could keep tabs loaded because it moves the tabs between 2 open windows. This plugin however only moves the tabs once a window closes, at which point the tabs are already unloaded unfortunately. To be honest though, this wasn't really a use case that I ran into myself, so there might be ways around this. I'll update you if I manage to find something.
I've also taken your suggestion and enabled issues on GH, so feel free to post anything there that you run into!
