A buggy, complete piece of **** and a waste of time, even when it was still being developed.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.12.0.1-signed).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Excellent addon and the only way I can browse the web.
My only issue is the slight conflict with all-in-one sidebar which causes the AIO and TK sidebars to both be on the same side.
In older versions of FF I had AIO on the left and TK on the right. This appears to no longer be possible. :(
Annoying with vertical tabs Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It seems that that every vertical tab plugin has its own display problems (before this one I tried VertTabBar, Vertical Tabs, TreeStyleTabs in the last couple of years). This one tries to display tabs left-to-right instead of top-to-bottom on a vertical tab column. Sometimes it is working correctly but one false click - you never know which click might be a false one - and it switches to this remarkable display. Then you have the choice between FF new start or switching TK2 options twice - once to tabs on top and second to tabs on right (or left) side. I am using FF 33.1.1.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.12.0.1-signed).
Greatest addons saves/shows Tabs Like a Wall of Bricks Rated 5 out of 5 stars
its the greatest addon.it shows tabs like a wall.the user can go to a brick(Tab) and click it and open a tab.It should work in collaboration with UnMHT addon so that when one saves multiple tabs at the same time,saves successfully.
Doesn't work since FF33 Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Same with treestyle tabs, for some reason the tabs are freezing and not closing after a while, and an underline appears under the tab title, and doesn't let me close. Any reasons why?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.12.0.1-signed).
The "Always override themes" function in tab color may not working. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I don't know if this only happens to me or everyone, but even though I choose "Always override themes" option, tabs colors still disappear when I use custom themes. When I change to default theme, the colors come back.
I'm also using "Classic Theme Restorer", but I didn't enable any tab color function in that addon.
The FF and addons I'm using are up-to-date.

Thanks for a great add-on, it takes a while to get used to having the tabs down the side of the screen, but like another reviewer said, it makes sense on large screens.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.11.2.1-signed).
Now I never get used to all browser without tabs on the side
And making Firefox like Chrome looks a big failure for me
AWESOME Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am so very appreciative of this addon....
I don't use any other browser much because
this addon is the only one in any browser that
allows me to have the tab bar down the side
rather than across the top....
with larger/wider monitors, it makes most
sense (to me, anyway) to have tabs out
of the way/down the side....
Only one issue....
everytime I restart FF, the tabs
all bunch together across the top
of the sidebar and I have to go to
addons, change the selection and
click OK...then, go back and reselect
the option that I want... along left side
and click OK before it works properly....
Other than that, it's perfect....
OS: Windows 7/64 and FF 31.0
thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Good to hear that you like it!
For the issue you have:
Can you open an issue and give more information at (like other extensions, tab or layout related settings)
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I use Firefox 24.6.0 on Gentoo and two things do not work:
- no option for highlighting the currently selected tab. It has no different color so I do not see which tab is selected
- left and right edge of the window are switched. When selecting left side of the window it is displayed at the right side (top and bottom work properly though)
Please fix this because it really is a great extension and you would get a higher rating!
changed rating due to reply, thx
1. Please install https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-kit-tab-highlighter/
2. Please use 0.10.6 for FF 28 or less
THANKS FOR AN AWESOME ADDON!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
All in all I'm coming back from using Chrome becoz FF got messy and doubled or tripled my bookmarks for any reason - x-marks worked wonderful until the owners changed a few years ago and messes all bookmarks up. But that is not my point today.
If there is a bookmark missing in FF I look it up in Chrome, so no problem at all.
But what I really miss is the highlightened Tab with the bold text on the active tab!
I always have like 20, 30 open tabs - grouped of course - but when it comes to find the active one I get kinda desperate. I know TK1 HAD this function and I've used it a lot.
So, please PikachuEXE, if you can find a bit of time, please give us at least the option to bolden the text of the active tab.
Or, much better: a crash-course in "how to edit a FF-addon"? <-----Just kidding ^._.^
I agree with you, and thanks!
For the bold the current tab text,
it's extracted to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-kit-tab-highlighter/
You can install it without restarting, which is good (and works without installing TK2)
Chrome is great for developers or working, but for tab management, nah.
I always said I stay with Firefox mainly for Tab Kit (or if there is another better extension I would switch, but not found yet). So I maintain this extension! (Bug fix and small features only though)
I can't recommend a tutorial for FF-addon because there is none (or at least not for a "traditional addon").
I can give you a few sites if you want, but let's discuss this in GitHub or somewhere else.

Can't get gray background when used with vertical tab bar with Aero Enabled on Windows 7. The background is always see through. No problem with Tree Style Tabs but prefer Tab Kit 2nd EditionThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.11.2.1-signed).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This extension is THE reason I use Firefox and won't touch anything else! So useful! RE: Multiple vertical tab rows? To avoid scrolling, you could make the tabs' height shrink when too many are present to fit in the window.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.4.1-signed).
Not good Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Is incompatible with Vertical Toolbar when using it in vertical mode.
I keep my tab bar on the left and my toolbar on the right. This is not possible with this extension. It glues the vertical toolbar and TK2-vertical together. I can have them on the right or left, but not right and left. This makes it unuseable IMO.
Multiple vertical tab rows? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I would like to use this if it allows more than one vertical row of tabs at a time. I frequently have 60 or more tabs in a group all open at once and would like to be able to see them all without having to scroll up or down a vertical tab row or nesting tabs. Does this add-on include the ability to have more than one vertical tab row if you have more tabs open than will fit in a single vertical row without scrolling or nesting?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.4.1-signed).
Sorry I guess it is very difficult to be implemented
In short, vertical mode is just changing the style of tab bar
And since Firefox only has one tab bar
No matter how I change the style, it's still in one row
Also it will be over complicated to handle overflown tabs in vertical mode (already too complicated in multi-row mode)
Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Sir, I don't understand you, you claim there is a way to turn off the collapse feature that I am sure annoys the hell out of everyone, and it must be many. THERE IS NO WAY TO TURN IT OFF AND IT'S VERY ANNOYING. Once again, it is that part of your tabkit bar that has a row of dots in the middle that when clicked suddenly closes the bar and is very annoying to try and undo. Second, why won't you fix the "first run" message? It keeps turning off every time firefox is restarted no matter what version I use OR OPERATING SYSTEM. That too has no option to stop in about:config, and there should be. Why is it not there, why is the collapse feature not in about:config at least either? Very annoying! Do you need money to fix this?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.4.1-signed).

most likely the best tab organizing extension...
Thank you very much for it.
Tab Highlighter include??? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Just wondering how come feature from Tab Highlighter that were in TK-Plus were left out needing a second extension? Even just adding a simple bold active tab would be extremely nice to have. Also the tab lock was nice so you couldn't accidentally close a tab without having to manually unlock it. Anyways, great work, decided to switch back to FF from chrome in large part to this extension alone!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.4.1-signed).
Thanks for your review
It was extracted for a few reasons:
Tab Highlighter's features are stable quite standalone (although it still works together with TK2)
Users can choose to use TK2 or Tab Highlighter only
If any bug is found in Tab Highlighter, updates can be released sooner
Reduce the complexity of TK2 code (still complex though)
Hi ! One more suggestion Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Hi !A few months ago, I had recommended that you add an option to allow recolouring of tab groups. I have been using it and it works very well for me. Thanks a lot.
I often get the feeling that Tab Kit 2 is made wit a focus on Tree style tab usage which is great and works well when the tabs are on top of the browser as well. But, adding just a few more features will make it a complete addon for those who like to use the Tabbar on the top of the browser. Here are a few of the things I suggest :1. A function to move a Tab group to the leftmost/rightmost position on the Tabbar would help organise Tab groups better.Additionally you could let the user set a prefrence to move the tab groups in a collapsed or an uncollapsed state.2. Instead of having a "Global actions" menu which has within it commands for Sorting tabs and Grouping tabs - Why not have Two menus "Sort Tabs" and "Group Tabs" in its place. This way sorting tabs would take one step less.Right click on tab -- Click on Tab Kit -- Click on Sort Tabs -- Click on Sort tabs by opener.3. A function to move a Tab group to a new window would be great. Right now I use Multiple Tab Handler. and Tab Kit 2 together. If Tab Kit 2 had the above function, it will be able to do everything that Multiple tab handler does.
To everyone reading this: This is the greatest Tab Manager addon you would find. It is better than Tab Mix Plus, Tab Utilities, Tree style Tabs, or even Multiple Tabs Handler.
Thanks for feedback
My opinion on your suggestion
1. Should be able to implement
2. Possible but don't know what benefit will it do. Is it an option that would be accessed so often?
3. I am not sure if this can be done easily.
Moving tabs across windows are tricky enough.
I think I won't do it at the moment as the grouping code is quite complex.
But I would consider doing it after rewrite.
Please open issues in GitHub if you want to discuss further. :)
auto hide tab bar Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I think if the tab kit has the "auto hide tab bar ". It will be the best.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.4.1-signed).
If you are using vertical one, the feature is already there.
No plan for horizontal one though.
Zotero conflict Rated 3 out of 5 stars
The URL bug was fixed, thank you very much! But another bug appeared: i have downloaded a very useful plug in: Zotero. You cannot close it in the bottom of your screen if you have tab kit 2. Also other bugs happens. What a pityThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.4.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
