Same problem than Big.Moe:i have to clic many time on the "x" to close the tabs... I remove this add-on and it's a shame coz it's the best of all "tab history"! if you find a solution i'll be back!
I really love the hover function instead of the click for tab history, but I had to remove your add-on because it interferes with the tab closing function (clicking on the "x").
Is it possible to allow the "x" to be clicked while still seeing the tab history menu without extra clicks?
An alternate idea if that is not possible is to place a rectangular "Close Tab" button slightly darker or slightly different hue than the rest of the box spanning the top of the tab history menu. Then just below you could begin the tab history list. This would avoid added clicks or the need to hit shift key or something like that.
It's all about efficiency....at least for me, I hate unnecessary extra maneuvers. ;o)
Very handy, great idea on mouse over instead right click.
Please keep updated this addon.
With Firefox v28, this add-on makes it more difficult to close a tab, by often requiring multiple clicks. It also retards the ability to drag-and-drop tabs. Worked well with previous versions.
Love this addon, as it makes work easier for me.
I have a feature request. Could you please make a shortcut to reload the first url in tab history for both a single tab and all tabs?? This would be a great feature for those that use the same site or group of sites in our work.
Thanks again for a great addon.
What the previous reviewer said is true. If a tab has a history of more than one website, I have to doubleclick on the close button to close the tab.
It is fast and a must-have. I make use of it every session and it's so easy as it LISTS very nicely the history on each tab - very helpful if you are a YouTube user and Facebook, etc., trying to remember where that song was you just clicked off accidentally when you have 10 and more tabs open.
This is a great extension and a real keeper. I used the original Tab History Menu until it stopped working for me, and I really missed it. I'm glad to have the improvements in this new version.
Let me add my voice to the request for hovering history for all tabs, not just the active tab. That's pretty essential. Also being able to right-click on an entry and have it open in a new tab without bringing along the rest of its history is important.
I find the persistence period of the dropdown to be too short. About a third of the time I find I have to quickly jerk the mouse down into the dropdown or else it disappears the instant the mouse pointer crosses over the tab's border. This is especially troublesome when there are only one or two entries in the list because of a tendency to overshoot the bottom of the list which then closes it.
Ordinarily, I keep many tabs open at once because links often lead me to sidetrack in diverse directions. Periodically I stop and "clean house" by closing a series of tabs after I double-check their history to be sure there is nothing I need to backtrack to or start in a new tab. To make this easier, I'd like to see the first entry in the history list be to close the tab. It's easier and faster to click it than to move back to that minuscule "x" close button. As it stands now, when Firefox pops up the tab title it covers most of the first line anyway. If I can't make out the first line, it may as well always be "Close this tab". Another advantage to this is that I can turn off the tab's "x" close button and gain a little extra space for the tab title.
We're all looking forward to a new version to see what improvements you'll offer. Thanks for continuing to develop this great addon.
Thank you! Previously I hadn't updated FF since v.14, because Tab History Menu was opening or closing menu each time I clicked on a tab!
Could you add two options?
1. view the history of other tabs without clicking
2. use the original click on the tab
Thank you!!! :-)
great addon - thank you :-)
always receive this error:

The right-click can be used to open an item in a background new tab or even open a small context-menu with different options to open the item.(same tab,new focus tab or background new tab)
Right-click is much easier than middle-click in many mice.
like Xyzzy said - give an option to display the history item when hovering OTHER tabs (for those who don't use Tab Scope addon)
I spent this evening trying this extension out, and it did work just as advertised -- it's really awesome that the creator was responsive to user requests for an alternative to the original due to add-on conflicts.
Suggestion 1: let the user set how long we must hover over the tab before the history appears. (The idea comes from Tab Mix Plus's switch-on-hover ability, which is controlled in milliseconds.) Alternately, maybe the menu could appear specifically if we hover over the site icon, or if we hover while holding down ctrl, alt, meta/window or the Mac equivalents.
Suggestion 2: optionally also have the history appear when the user hovers *other* tabs. That would let us check which tab we viewed a particular page in, without having to actually click through each tab.
Suggestion 3: if possible, allow the user to control how many history entries appear (I've always felt that the default number is kind of tiny).
I ran into one mild problem, was that the close button on the tabs didn't respond about half of the time. Holding the mouse button down slightly longer than usual often forced it to obey, but not always. It 'felt' like there was some connection between the menu's timing/presence and the button misbehaving, but I could be wrong.
Love this addon. Thanks for putting it together!
