Take one down, pass it around... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To whomever patched BarTab so it works in FX 8... THANK YOU!! I bumped the version in the install.rdf to 9.0.* and it's working fine in FX 9.0b1. I can't tell you how much I've missed this extension. It makes a huuuuuuge difference in FX performance for me, especially because I'm a heavy tab user and I use only one window. Thank you once again! One more thing... I set BarTab to unload my tabs after 10 seconds. No issues there and I can unload a tab from the context menu, too. It's using 275 MB RAM with nine tabs on the tab bar. Only one is loaded. Woo-hoo!!

This is great! Thanks and keep up the great work!

Does anyone know if this extension auto-unloads tab content if a tab has moved to the background after a certain amount of time? If not, I would like to suggest that as an enhancement. Of course, the amount of time before unloading a background tab's content from RAM should be user-configurable.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Not yet

It doesn't auto-unload tab content yet, but it's certainly an idea I've been playing with. Stay tuned :)
