- by X C, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5Does not work at all :( I tried it on a random web page.Thanks for the feedback, I guess you might have double right clicked on the tab header or tried to use it on a native page or the Mozilla add-ons site itself (it doesn't work for those cases due to security/architecture reasons).
This extension closes the active tab when you double right click anywhere on the page.
- by Firefox user 13484529, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5This flat out doesn't work most of the time. I suggest you make what people really want, a Double Click to Close Tab add on where if you left double click a tab on the bar it will close. This is a very poor replacement for that great legacy add on.Unfortunately it is not a replacement for the extension you are thinking of ;-)
As already mentioned in the description, it is replacement for "Rights to Close" legacy extension.
Can you provide any more details? Your OS, Firefox version and an example website where it didn't work for you?
- by Mark Delorme, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5This app is rubbish and deserves less than 1 star, if that were possible. The previous versions of Firefox allowed "DblClicker" to work just fine and that extension was genius.
Response to developer: The context menu should not open when you are intending to use it only for the purpose of closing an open tab. Page contents often interfere with the functionality of the right-click. Something that works with Firefox tabs would be ideal; something that utilizes double-click trigger (or triple) rather than right-click trigger would also be great, since then you wouldn't need to compromise the abilities of a context menu being readily available.Thanks for the feedback. Can you provide any more details about the problem you are facing so that it can be fixed ?
- The intention of this extension is to support the use-case of those users who open and eventually close a lot of tabs while working with mouse
- Double right click is a simple and unused gesture, hence it fits well with the target use-case of this extension
- The context menu shows up because that happens as soon as the first click is registered. Apart from that, it is not possible to control the native context menu
- You mentioned "Page contents often interfere with the functionality of the right-click". I do not see how that affects the purpose of this extension
- You mentioned "Something that works with Firefox tabs would be ideal". Assuming that you are talking about the tab header:
a). Apparently it is not supported in the new WebExtensions architecture used by Firefox
b). The user would still need to move the mouse up to the tab header. While the purpose of this extension is to avoid the need of moving mouse at all for closing the tab :-)
