Tabhunter Version History
Be careful with old versions!
These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.
Added a pref (accessible via the About Add-Ons page) that reinstates the "Close on Go" legacy option. Also no longer dumping diagnostics to the console.
Tabhunter 2.0.3 reinstates the legacy behavior that when it pops up, the current text, if any, is selected, and the cursor is in the pattern field.
Made an internal change to satisfy Firefox Add-on requirements. No visible changes from 2.0.0.
Advertises multiprocess compatibility in install.rdf. Now appears as multiprocess-compatible in the Addons page
Performance fix. Tabhunter is still slower now than in the single-process Firefox days, but it should be significantly faster than versions since v1.0.22.
1. When Tabhunter knows that a tab hasn't changed at a particular window and tab index, it avoids sending another message to the tab process for that information
2. Schedule updates to show currently known tabs during long processing periods, and display how many tabs are yet to be displayed
3. Convert the first analysis loop into a series of setTimeout's so the extension avoids hogging the CPU.
Same as 1.0.22, except this version doesn't jar the chrome files
This version works with the new multi-process version of Firefox, and fixes some issues in 1.0.20.
This version of Tabhunter works with the new dual-process "Electrolysis" version of Firefox, strictly using message-passing for all inter-process communication, rather than the "CPOW" proxy.
Fixes the long-standing bug where oversized favicons appeared distorted. They're now all 16x16.
The instances of get*Properties in selectTabDialog.js:
TextSearchTreeView.prototype are stubs and the third
parameter isn't used.
It would be nice if the compatibility checker checks to
verify if anything is assigned to the third parameter before
issuing a complaint.
The prefs widget now works with betas of Firefox 4. This version also fixes the text-search box problem.
This version sorts the tabs by recent visit times first, then alphabetically. This means that if you open the Tabhunter dialog and immediately press return, you'll go to the previous tab you visited, even if it's in a different window.
Main contribution by Iain Dalton. This marks a milestone -- Tabhunter has always been an open-source project, but Iain's is the first public submission.
Quick bug fix -- use substr to put matched text in the text tree, not substring
Works with Firefox 3.5 (currently in beta). No functional changes.
This version allows users to drag the Tabhunter icon on to a toolbar, using
This version introduces a separate Preferences box, accessible from the Add-Ons dialog on all platforms, and by right-clicking the StatusBar icon on Windows and Linux. The Tools menuitem and StatusBar icon can now be hidden, and other controls have been moved from the main Tabhunter window into the Preferences window.
This version adds compatibility with Firefox 3.1 beta 3.
This version adds a field that lets people specify the keystroke sequence they want the host app to use to bring up firefox.
This version fixes a long-running bug in browsers based on Mozilla 1.9 -- unless addEventListener is invoked in a setTimeout handler, the event is often not removed correctly, and triggers exceptions when it fires after it was supposedly removed. See http://code.google.com/p/tabhunter/issues/detail?id=5
Now works with early betas of Firefox 3.1 - no functional changes.
Main bug fixes:
* Window optionally closes when a tab is selected
* Position remembered on Linux
* Context menu items added to copy title, URL, or both
Update homepageURL field in install.rdf - no functional change
Bug fixes: meta-accel-T launches, ctrl-w closes,
tab-close exception fixed
