    (MaxVersion is modified to make it work with Firefox 9)
  • All,

    I don't know how many of you visit the MozillaZine forum thread for this extension, but just in case you haven't, please know that there is an update for Firefox 4+ available here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=10928615#p10928615

    This version treats the permatab more like an App Tab, but keep in mind it is still very much a beta.

    On that note, Permatabs Mod has been made available on GitHub for modification by the community. The source can be found at the GitHub page: https://github.com/deos/PermaTabs-Mod

    We are sorry that this hasn't updated as much as we would have liked, but deos has had a hard time keeping up with it due to real life concerns (even with what help I can provide on the support front). He does what he can, but we could use all the help we can get (especially if you have experience writing Firefox extensions).

    If you have an interest in seeing this extension stay alive, feel free to come on by the thread and help out; any assistance will be appreciated. Thanks.
  • wonderful and excellent extension.
    I hope developer update for firefox 4 and over.
    It's so indispensable that i don't upgrade Firefox nowadays.
  • Great addon, it's really useful when you have a certain number of websites you visit often. Think of sites like Social Networks, blogs and actualities like the local newspapers' sites.

    If I may make a suggestion to the developers: please add the option to only show the website's favicon and to shrink the width of the tab when another tab is active. This will create more space in the tab bar if you have 3 or more tabs 'pinned' as permanent.

    As soon as this option is added, PermaTabs deserves 5 stars! ;-)
  • Pin as App Tab is dysfunctional if it is tied tied to the browsers history. Reason: If you set Firefox to remember browser history and then close Firefox with tabs open to different webpages the next time you open Firefox it will load all the tabs that were open at the end of your last session. Effectively the only thing Pin as App Tab does is make a smaller tab.
    What should happen is Pin as App Tab should allow you to clear browser history and the Pinned Tabs should be pinned and reloaded each time as a new session unless unpinned like Permanent Tab extension use to do.
    Right now Pin as App Tab should be called make Tab Smaller.
  • A disabling session restore feature would be nice.
  • I love you so much that I wanna get you to the back of a high school and get you pregnant

    :P seriously, awesome add-on
  • Lovely. Exactly what I was missing! Thx a lot!
  • oh haha never mind, i realised there is an option for it! (:
  • i use the Strata40 theme, could you please make an option to have permatabs look the same as regular tabs? right now permatabs look horrible
  • Great add-on but, please, is there any way to prevent perma-tabs from going to another URL if a new address in mistakenly entered in the address bar?

    Developer response

    could you please contact me with mail or in the forum? this could be a bug you are talking about
  • Great plugin. If anyone feels memory use is now an issue, they might want to try "Tab Utilities" plug-in which adds a few more options for less bloat.
  • I don't appreciate having my computer spammed with permanent links to www.reddit.com and the NY Times. I won't be using your addon.

    Developer response

    those pages are just random example permatabs which get added on first install, you can un-permatab and close them with a few clicks
  • Perfect, exactly what I needed!
  • Memory usage without PermaMod 80MB
    Memory usage with PermaMod 120MB

    Tested 25 times

    Any recommandations?

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64
    Firefox 3.6.3

    Developer response

    i'll investigate that!
  • It's one of my favorites, excellent add-on
  • Just what I've been looking for, for a long time. Together with FaviconizeTab-add-on, it keeps my all time favorites available at all times ;-)

    Thanks for a great add-on!
  • Hi thanks for the update!

    I am not sure if its a bug but, when on a permatab and i click the stumble button for stumbleUpOn, the site loads inside the perma tab

    Regards

    hi, please report problems in the forum (the "support site") or mail me
    but you are right, there is an incompatibility. i'll write something about it in the forum
  • Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you for this update. This is THE most useful add-on to have in FF. I literally felt lost without this program after the 3.6 update.
  • This is a MUST HAVE!

    Great to have permanent tabs over browser-sessions which remember the auto-reload settings made with tab mix plus.
  • Thanks for the quick update to 3.6. I've also found this to a must have addon.
  • Nice work. I never expected this to be an Add-on that I absolutely had to have in order to feel productive, but I do. Thanks for the nice Add-on and the quick update for 3.6
  • Not currently compatible with 3.6. An update would be great as this is a must have extension!
