  • THUMBS UP! Simple, stable, intuitive ! Good work !
  • Keyboard shortcut does not work on Mac OS.
  • Half a year after 3.0 - and it still doesn't work on a number of sites, ie YouTube. So long click on the page is indeed quite arguable in comparance to oldschool double click on tab name.
    Hello.

    The problem is that the new Firefox Extensions API no longer lets us implement double-click on a tab. So I resorted to the next best solution (according to me at least).

    You could always disable the long click approach in preferences, though admittedly a lot of websites dont respond to it well. I try to fix as many of them as possible.

    You are correct about it not working on Youtube. I have opened a related bug: https://github.com/jayesh-bhoot/pin-unpin-tab/issues/11

    Could you also provide other websites where you have faced this problem?
  • This extension seems work only on Windows, and not in Linux by the key combinaison ALT + P. Please, can you correct the extension, and I change my note.

    //EDIT : it works now!
    Hello

    In fact, I test on Linux first, it being my primary OS.

    Please check one usecase: are you using 'Alt Gr' key (which often replaces the right Alt key on laptops) instead of Alt key? AltGr is not mapped to Alt in some Linux distributions.

    Otherwise, can you provide more details?
  • Very nice, so easy to pin and unpin using the toolbar button!
  • Excellent extension. Would you consider also porting it to chrome/opera?. This extension is definitely the best one to pin/unpin tabs, the long left click is very useful
  • Alt-P. Makes so much sense, this should come out of the box! Thanks for writing this add on!
  • I'd give it 5 stars bc it does what it's supposed to, but having the long left-click on by default really threw me for a loop, couldn't figure out why it was happening. Maybe the default should be off for that, or perhaps even just a longer "hold down" time default.
    I see your point. I agree that the default behaviour of long click often becomes confusing. Let me give some thought on this.
  • Would like if there was a possibility to protect the tab!
  • Now with the long left mouse click option, it's much easier to use =) Great add on
  • Працює - і добре :)
    Thank you!

    You may want to check out the latest approach in v3.0 - long left click anywhere on the webpage to pin or unpin the tab.
  • "Double-click on a tab" 期待して待ってます。
    As confirmed by Mozilla developers, the webextensions technology have limited features to ensure security of the browser. So, they will not implement the API required for 'double-click on tab' feature. Look here(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1246706) and here(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?format=default&id=1356949) for more details.

    So, unfortunately, you should stop waiting for that feature. Meanwhile, may be the latest approach in v3.0 - long left click anywhere on the webpage to toggle - may suffice (or hopefully exceed) your needs.
  • Shortcut in new version doesn't work in Windows if "P" is a shortcut for the menu (e.g. in Polish menu).

    Long press does seem to work for standard pages, thanks :-). Not ideal, so still hoping for customizable shortcut.
    I settled on the Alt-P shortcut after a lot of trial and error. Unfortunately, my attempts were narrow, limited to English language. I will try to implement a customizable keyboard shortcut as soon as possible to alleviate this issue.

    Meanwhile, may be the latest approach in v3.0 - long left click anywhere on the webpage to toggle - may suffice (or hopefully exceed) your needs.
  • can't wait for the double click upgrade!

  • The keyboard shortcut and pin button are nice additions that make me wonder why this hasn't been included as a native Firefox feature so far.

    While the developer is working on adding the ability to customize the keyboard shortcut, AutoHotkey (for Windows only, or other Mac alternatives) can help with that, by making it possible to use another key combination but send Alt+P in Firefox.

    By creating a more complex script, I found out that I can use AutoHotkey for a double click on a tab to send Alt+P and pin it, which takes this to another level not currently allowed for web extensions (they can't read clicks on tabs anymore).
    I will add the customizable shortcut in the next update.

    Also, you may check out the screenshots I have added, that demonstrates some locations to place the add-on icon, for quick and efficient access.
  • Great addon :D
    Enjoy!
  • It's a great addon, I thank the developer for releasing it. I kindly ask the developer to redevelop the idea of GCLI integration, meaning the "pin" and "unpin" command line commands to perform the function through command-line which is the best feature it offerED. Moreover, I would suggest to change the default Ctrl+P shortcut to Alt+X to which is nearer to the left hand and can be done by just thumb and index finger, that's the first two fingers, and in broader sense to comply with its Chrome counterpart extensions which utilize similar shortcut.
    I never managed to collect adequate information to repair the code broken due to a GCLI update in past. Now in the webextension era, my priority is to bring the WebExtension to feature parity first (including customizable shortcuts), and then I will delve into GCLI. I am sorry that I had to deprecate such an awesome feature.
