Broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Have to disagree with the last reviewer. I didn't realize this addon still had any functionality, so I tested it but the results were not good. I was able to get some tabs to change color. Other wouldn't change and once the color changed I wasn't able to further modify it. It also seems to have other strange effects on tabs. At times I couldn't tell which tab I was on. It seems to effect the way the tabs are drawn now. I wish someone would update this addon. I am really surprised there aren't more who are looking for this to be updated. This used to be one of my favorite addons.

Limited compatibility with Firefox 10 - some functions work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Brilliant extension concept, but as others have said, it's unmaintained and badly broken. Options are broken, popup menu is broken, most functions are broken. It probably wouldn't need much work to get it compatible with Firefox 10.

But you can set options and colors etc via the prefs.js or about:config, and two core functions still work - Ctrl-Alt-(0 to 9) lets you color a tab or a domain as you want and the color is remembered properly. It also works well with Tab Mix Plus.

It's not much but that's all I wanted an extension to do, so although everything else is broken, FlagTab works for me. Can't wait for someone to bring it up to date for Firefox 10 though :)

The Menu is buggy, unicode letters come up mixed up in the color names, if I open a tab in the background and then color the current tab, the wrong tab is colored, and with this addon active, I can't make tabs open at the far right any longer.

No work with Tree Style Tab.
Tooooooo buggy =(
I really wanted this addon to use, but I very sad that I cant =(((

Unfortunate Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Tree tabs - nope - 1/4 worky -> no worky

Colors - background? Why not the tab and choose text/background colors of tab content - coloring the surface behind the tab is awkward ugly and clunky.

Options - uh-huh, doesn't do a dang thing - at all - nada.. Sorry, I can make the icon colored but only default colours. Icons are useful but not when they're overwritten with a splotch

Tab context menu (right click) does not work at all either

I gave it one star because a) it exists and that a damn good start and b) I had to disable it because it sucks in it's current state and is distracting, cumbersome and less than helpful.

1. Make it work with tree tabs if you can
2. Options should work, all of them
3. Option to color the tab *not* just around the tab
4. Loose the icon color option
5. Don't forget people drag and drop tabs - inheritance is crucial to reduce annoyance
6. Right click menu needs to work

How to reproduce?

Mind telling me what OS you're on, and what version of Firefox you're running? Also, feel free to email me at: firefoxREMOVETHIS@mattpowell.otherinbox.com

Thanks!

yes, like others said - options dialog doesn't work, and what is worse - this add-on doesn't work correctly with "tree style tab" add-on =(

Very nice program. But I very much miss the option to restore the color to tabs re-opened after closing and restarting Firefox. I do not want to remember all the settings myself and re-color the tabs every time.

I only use the coloring feature of this extension, which works great! I think the persistent urls feature would be nice, but, it is a bit wonky in options dialog... Anyways, thanks for the addon!

The settings dialog doesn't work

Warning: 'Tree Style Tab' and 'FlagTab' doesn't play nice together.

FlagTab is a bit buggy in the options dialog.

One thing i would request is that the trigger could handle "Single Click+Ctrl+Shift"

Love the new grouping by color feature; needs a little work when moving a tab though. Also, when I updated it turned all my uncolored tabs red?!? Nbd, just "Cleared all FlagTabs"...

Anywhoo, love the extension, can't wait for the next version!

Could it be, that this AddOn has a bug at least in then in the UI? The developer wrote, there should be 4 Tab's in the options, but there is n o n e.

And the 'support site' is simply something - sorry - which I can't identify as a homepage (and is reached after 2 redirects... why?). May be this is not the right place to file a bug, but the so called 'support page' is it less than ever.

Primarily I intended to rate it a 3 or even 4 (at least for the idea, even if it everything than new!), but even without a clear way to post bugs - it's not more to me than 2... and I uninstall it now and go on using >Colorful Tabs

Overrides basic tab colors of Themes Rated 4 out of 5 stars

FF3.5 & FlagTabv2.2.2. overrides any tab color changes made by TabMixPlus...all non-flagged tabs are stuck with the theme default color instead of the separate colors for focused, unfocused and unread set by TMabMixPlus. It also overrides similar tab colors in SilverMel Theme. Can this be fixed?

no me ha convencido, cuando lo instale pensaba que se coloreaban automaticamente las pestañas, pero al tener que hacerlo manualmente no me sirve

Great and very usefule extension. But is it possible to make tabs relative (when i click on link new tab will be opened next to current) only when i mark tab? So if i mark with color tab and when i click on link on this tab next tab will be relative to this and will be opend next to this. But when i do not mark tab with color and click on in it next tab will be opened at the end (standart).

P.s. Sorry for my english.

The experimental version rocks! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally got around to downloading the experimental version; 2.2.2. Runs great! Love having the ability to bookmark my flagged tabs. Make this version non-experimental already!!!@

(Also, people, it's easy to turn off some of the features...right-click on a tab > FlagTab Options > Options)
