I know this is 'lite' but it really needs auto unload.

Difference with FF built-in hook? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What does this do that Firefox built-in hook in Firefox's options "don't load tabs until selected"?

I agree with fffoxxx
The visual effect is really important!!
How difficult is it to just add a simple effect?

A must have extension for FF, especially for people keep 100+ tabs opened. It saves memory too!

FF12 does have the option to "don't load tabs until selected'

But it doesn't show them grayed out.

FF12 has incorporated this addon in a minimal, unsatisfactory way.

Bartab was a simple but very useful addon. I'm very grateful for it being there before Firefox implemented it. Thanks.

For those who want Firefox to show unloaded tabs in a similar style as Bartab Lite on Windows:

1) Go to: C:\Users\(your user name)\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\(random letters and numbers).default\

2) Create a folder called 'chrome' (without quotes) if you don't see one.

3) Make a css file called 'userChrome' (userChrome.css)

4) Open it up in a text editor of your choice and put in:

.tabbrowser-tab[pending] {
opacity: .5;
}

6) Restart the browser if it isn't closed. Done!

Restore on Demand Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Mozilla has been (since when exactly I do not know)
building Restore on Demand functionality into MFF.
I would guess this extension is dead or dying ...

The original BarTab add-on was forked to support modern FF versions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

BarTab 3.0, fork of the original one by philiKON, is available on GitHub:
https://github.com/fhoech/BarTab

A link to a binary build is available in the reviews: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bartab/reviews/

Many thanks to philiKON for the original and the nice guy(s) for making it work on newer FF versions! (tested with FF 8)

Works as advertised Rated 4 out of 5 stars

jackfff: The description in "About this Add-on" is in fact quite precise, and covers the fact that Firefox now supports this ability natively. Also, given that the developer of BarTab Lite is the same developer of "classic" BarTab, the two have at least one thing in common, no matter how redundant you feel this to be. How about less aggression next time, hmm?
