A must have add on for frequent browsers.
Thanks for adding "open about:home page in last tab" feature [ Update : May10 - 2012 ]
As Commented by Drawken on March 24 , 2011 ,
Pls change focus of cursor to google search field when it opens about:home page
Manual Trick : i found that by setting "browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab" value to FALSE ,
firefox last tab displays close button on last tab , also onclose , instead of closing the window ,
it displays about:blank tab
why isn't this add-on in FF core? it's just too obvious that it's useful, and not in the way for usability... i think it would even enhance the simplicity regarding user experience.
This is great idea except it does not work with NewTabURL 2 ... instead of closing browser, it keeps opening up homepage again!
I wanted it to work like Chrome, where closing the last tab also closes the app. At first, I thought it didn't work; it just cleared the current page and left a blank tab. But then I realized I had to specifically set the extension's options to close the window (duh)...and it works!
Dommage que l'item vide reste affiché. Il serait plus logique de laisser que la croix apparaitre (celle qui permet de créer un item vide) Et ça permettrait d'afficher une image de fond d'écran à la place. Pour moi c'est un bug de conception dommage...
It does as it says. Last tab close button.
I can't believe FF developers still havent set it after 7 v's!!
For an electronic clutz like me (to say nothing about my OCD) that little x is an absolute "must have".
Works as advertised. Using it on Firefox 6.0. I dont understand, considering the feedback FF developers get on the beta builds, how can they miss such simple things. Thanks to the author.
Works flawlessly, using it for years. Works great with speedials, don't know why the geniuses at mozilla decided to remove the ability to close the last tab.
Works a charm, also on 4.0.1, using the "browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab FALSE" solution. Love this add-on!
>> Why this app does not work with Firefox v.4.0.1. ?
open URL "about:config"
use filter "browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab"
set this in FALSE (double click is change this option)
Why this app does not work with Firefox v.4.0.1. ?
Good afternoon. Why this app does not work with Firefox v.4.0.1.thank you
Even though the effect is to return to my homepage, I like that I can close the last tab, which opens a new one with no previous history. Keeps things logically separate.
I was hesitant to upgrade from 3.0.19 for the longest time
Even when 3.5 and 3.6 came out I kept going back to 3.0 because of the lack of that last close button (yes I -AM- picky). Finally, with this and the FFox 3.0 skin, I can use FFox 4.0 comfortably! MAJOR PROPS TO THE AUTHOR!
I use this program in conjunction with "New Tab Homepage". "Last Tab Close Button" does EXACTLY what it says it does, BUT one small thing I would like changed is the focus of the text bar when it opens my homepage. If I make my homepage Google or Facebook, the flashing bar is still in the URL bar, when I would rather have it in the search or login bar. I looked in the code already, and have no clue what I should change to make it do what I want. Hopefully the maker of this plugin or someone that reads this comment can help me out. Thanks.
Mushaf, your config option doesn't do anything for me (Firefox 3.6). The button does not appear on the single tab. Tjard, this close button used to be there before 3.5 or something. They removed it. But we want it back. This is one of my most-needed add-ons.
I have no idea why this is not a defalt function, like it is in Chrome.
В некоторых случаях очень нужное дополнение, рекомендую. Работает хорошо.
An low-tech alternative to this would be to simply make a bookmark for "about:blank" and place it in your bookmarks toolbar. But, if you want to go the fancy route, this add-on does the job well.
Great add-on. Just missing the right-click 'Close Tab' option - a feature I'd never used until I recently started using the App Tabs addon in which case the normal close button is not available.
Definitely awesome update. This is just what I needed. A must add add-on....haha, get it? add add on...lame joke. But yeah, this should be featured.
It would be a 5 star addon if you could make it possible to middle click on the tab, and whatever option you chose when clicking on exit button, that is what will happen when middle clicking. So for example, if clicking on close last tab [x], it closes the window, it should close last window.
