This extension is very useful. It makes it very convenient to toggle switching between single window mode and multi-window mode.
Yes, franc, it is toggling a preference. That's the whole idea. It's much more convenient than doing it manually each time you want to switch.
Cool ! Many thanks for this ! ;)
This "Add-On" does nothing "more" than switch the value of:
between 2 (multi Window) and 3 (single Window). Have first a look to:
before you install this useless Add-On and manage your setting by yourself in about:config.
Err - that's the whole point, clicking a button/menu option is far more convenient than going into about:config and battling the dragons
This extension messes up TabKit extension. Causes empty line in Tools menu, button for mode switching do nothing.
This extension messed up my "Compact Menu" button and I could not find a way to use the actual "window mode switching" functionality.
I had to restart Firefox in safe mode to be able to uninstall this extension.
Overall a bad experience ...
Un buen trabajo al crear extension de solo ventanas y pestañas, sirve y es muy util cuando te metes en sitios de juegos en los que tienen demasiada publicidad en PopUps. ¡Gracias!
This add-on clashes with zotero!
Very useful extension! Perhaps in a future release an automatic switching mode from a sites list...
Simple and works good with ALL kind of popup in FF 3.6
C'est une extension, mais cette fonctionnalité devrait être intégrée à Firefox en standard. Indispensable !
This is an extension but it should be integrated in Firefox in standard. Essential !
This is great. I noticed that in eBay it worked on the text but not the images next to the text in a search listing. Still 5 stars though I've been looking for something like this forever and I am sure you will work out all the bugs over time.
FF 3.5 now includes a windows to tab option but some windows still are opened as windows... I hope you'll update your extension so...
FF 3.5 includes an option to open new winodws in new tab but some popups windows are opened as windows.....
I hope this extension will be updated.
Switch Window Mode breaks my "Tiny Menu" setup, forcing the whole alt menu to show, which has made me not use Switch Window Mode.
lets me keep only one firefox window ***** stars
Is not really a single window mode. dunno about pop-ups but if i right click on something and choose open in new window, it does that :/
@Wayne King: the button for toggleing it is in the tools menu.
Love this extension except it doesnt work in Fx 3.01
I give up. I installed it but where is the button? How do you use it? Is it a toggle?
Nice concept but seems to not work for me in FF3, e.g. middleclicking a bookmark still open a new window instead of tab.
I've been wanting this for years. Now I don't wind up with 15 layers of Amazon over my TV schedule (yes, I often forget Ctrl+T).
It's not one of the high tier extensions, but it fulfills what its purpose calls for and does it well.
I hope to see Firefox 3 support soon.
So far the core functionalities works for Firefox 3, but the toolbar icon lost its ability to switch between its 2 icons to indicate the 2 states of this extension.
