Please also allow ability to limit number of windows, & the total number of tabs in all windows Rated 5 out of 5 stars
OK so this isn't really a review but I'm really glad this addon exists.
I've been using Window and Tab Limiter for years but that addon hasn't been supported really for half a decade, so I'm thinking of making the switch.
I'll edit this review when I've tried it!
Edit: First impression - if you set the max tab limit above 99, the tab counter box does not expand to fit the number of digits.
Later impression: I would like to be able to display the total number of tabs in all windows. At the moment, you can open an infinite number of windows (effectively undermining the addon's purpose). I would like to be able to limit the number of tabs in a window, as done currently, but also the total number of tabs (and others may want a third option to limit the total number of windows). I imagine some people open all tabs in new windows (or spam ads do this for them), and as such this addon is useless for them.
NB: If you have a higher number of tabs than 10 when you install this addon, you just won't be able to open any new tabs until you set the max tab default to a higher value (or close the excess tabs).
Sea of tabs is gone Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very useful. Limiting the number of tabs really help, especially I unconsciously open tons of tabs often. But I would like to disable the notification is possible.
Amazingly practical Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I LOVE YOU THIS IS AMAZING
I always get perpetually lost in an endless sea of tabs, ever growing, and I feel the need to read every single one of them (especially on Wikipedia etc). Thank you so much for designing this software
You liberate me my friend!
You should be happy with yourself and content with your life because you do things that are good for humanity and that help others.

Great add-on for limiting the amount of opens tabs. I would like to suggest adding an option where instead of it blocking opening of a new tab, it would close the first opened tab (or the first tab in the window). This way, I could keep opening new tabs and old tabs will automatically close.
Très bien Rated 5 out of 5 stars
extension toute simple mais elle me permet de bloquer le nombre d'onglets parce que j'ai tendance a les laisser s'accumuler...extension pratique,simple et légère donc
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I've installed this add-on on most of my machines now, and it's great. I discovered on one machine I had more than 1400tabs. Which if I may say myself is a little bit excessive.
I have a little bit of an issue though. The extension should not prevent you from opening firefox special tabs, as for example the Add-ons manager, where the preferences for this extension are accessed.

Review & Improvement Suggestion Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This add-on is for people, who use a lot of tabs, more than they can handle at least. So it´s a very good approach, to limit yourself, and to have an overview about how fast and how many tabs you are opening in a single firefox-session.
I often come up against about 100 open tabs (useful or not), but that consumes a lot of system resources, slowing down my (older) computer. Using this add-on protects me at least from opening too many tabs in one single window. And that is a big progress!
This add-on works fine, but there are two suggestions for improvement:
When the limit is reached, a too tiny, too grey window scrolls in at the bottom, that can be easily OVERLOOKED! I often start many tabs from one website, but after some clicks I realize too late, that the limit was reached long before. So I don´t know what tabs where opened, and what tabs where cancelled from opening. My overview and scheme is lost. It would be very useful, if the limit-window would be a popup-window with a button to confirm, so that it can never be overlooked (maybe as an option).
The second suggestion concerns the number of open firefox-windows: as a real tab-junkie, you usually can´t be hold back that easy, so if the limit is reached, you open another firefox-window, and the game starts from the beginning. After 10 open windows with each 10 tabs, the machine usually also slows down and reminds you that way of your bad habit. It would be very useful, it you could also limit the number of firefox-windows, or simply the SUM of all tabs (amount of all tabs in all windows together).
If you can add these two options, this "anti-tab-junkie" or "voluntary-self-control" add-on would be more "soft" for cure beginners. Thank´s a lot!!
Thanks for the review and suggestions! Really good point on the number of windows and sum of all tabs. I'll definitely put them into consideration and implement a solution in the next version.
