It does its job very well. I like having the option to open all clicked links of a permanent tab to an open window. Very cool! You can even change the color of the permanent tabs.
I can't use firefox without this add-on installed anymore. PermaTabs in combination with Faviconize Tab means that the webpages I always use are open,but with minimal tab bar real estate taken up.
I recommend it to every IE user I convert to FF. 10/10 to David Morrison for this one.
My rating would go from 3 to 10, if I wasn't continually losing the program. Although I have never even tried to remove the program It stops working for me. I end up having to re-install it, which has worked until today. Now nothing happens when I re-install. Thus I would say if you don't want frustration don't install this program.
I haven't been able to replicate this bug. My guess is it was caused by a conflict with another extension.
The latest version has had much of the initialization code rewritten, there's a good chance if you try again, you should find this bug resolved.
This add-on adds a single new feature, the ability to make a tab "permanent". You can't delete it (no "X" on it or "close tab" menu option) and even a restart won't make it go away. Love it for my GMail inbox and home page.
The only problem is that if you remove it (I had to temporarily remove it for administrative problems), be sure you have no permanent tabs left. Because, the tabs stay permanent but you have no way to disable it. Probably a bug but only a minor one as you can reinstall, uncheck the "permanent tab" menu item, and then re-remove it.
