I don't get it. The old "tab lock" used to actually lock a tab and when you went to open another link, a new tab opened up. The tab that was locked was also protected from being over written by another link. And when you closed your browser and reopened it, your locked tabs were still there. It was also accessed by double clicking or right clicking on the tab you wanted to lock and protect.
This tab lock doesn't do that. I don't know what it does actually. All I know is that there is some double pin icon in the upper right of the window. Nothing seems to happen when I single or double click it. Either way, when I open a new link, the link always opens in the tab I wanted locked and protected.
Sorry, but this seems like a useless addon. I have the latest version of Firefox Quantum.
It's a good start. Two suggestions for improvements. One, adjust the colors of the icon for the different settings--at the very least, it can be hard to distinguish the "black" from the "blue" at a quick glance. Perhaps make the colors a bit brighter.
Two, it would be great if the change in settings could be made permanent (i.e., at least until the user decides to change the settings). While there are some websites where I'm happy to have all links open in the same tab, there are others sites I regularly use where I ALWAYS want all links to open in a new tab and it would be more convenient to not have to remember to click on the icon every time I visit those particular sites.
While a tab is locked, whenever i click on a link, it used to open 2 tabs at the same time instead of 1 tab. Please fix it. Thanks
Great addon. Could you make an other addon or add to this one the option to protect the tab from being closed please?
The extension is easy to use, and does what it's supposed to. Unfortunately, the new Firefox 54 multiprocess feature is disabled by tabloc.
The name is Tabloc, which implies locking a bank of tabs. Overriding the use of last tabs open. Which implies not losing the tabs that are supposedly saved with lock tab, protect tab, etc.
So, what's the name of the add-on that does the above? Tabloc certainly doesn't. Thank you.
Please provide option to jump right from the locked tab to a newly created tab.
Thank you for this great addon! One option that I could suggest, is to add "prevent unload tab" (to prevent the locked tabs to unload from memory) in behavior. I think this would be very useful. Thanks again!
I was seeking an add-on to make a tab permanent [so i figured "lock" would do it]. Tabloc, whatever it does, doesn't do that.
It might be a fine tab, but the explanation could be clearer.
It's very helpfull. Thanks.
thanks a lot for this nice Add-On to lock/protect tabs.
but would you please add another feature in Options of Tabloc called "Triple Click" in Shourtcut Action to "Lock+Protect" tabs?
now there is just "Double Click" but I need "Triple Click" not "Double Click".
for several times I double click on many tabs suddenly and they Lock but I prefer this happened by Triple Click.
please add this feature.
When I click a link in a locked tab, the link is opened in a new tab (which is what I want) but firefox does not switch to it - I have the «Options->Tabs->When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately» setting checked - and in unlocked tabs it works.
Session restore is broken - protection/lock is only restored after tab is loaded :(
Nice add on
Excellent little extension, helps you avoid closing radio tabs :). Still, a couple of new features would make it awesome:
1) prevent reload
2) dialog popup when browser closing if any protected/locked tabs exist.
worx good so far, but the option "prevent goBack/goForward" doesn't work with Tab History Menu 2.1.1 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-history-menu/).
activated "prevent goBack/goForward" but still CAN go back or forwards by just clicking tab and then select.
5 Stars if this could be fixed.
Great to see a replacement for PermaTabs Mod working in new versions of Firefox (10 as I write it).
This probably is the future of Permatab Lock.
Excellent and easy, Sometimes, Forbidden The tabs, I hope the best for this !
Tabloc is great but no work @ FF5.0 , Ok in FF4 & 4.0.1
I love Tab-Loc functions but its not compatible for FireFox 4.0. One review is get the Pin-Tab confused with Tab-Loc two different functions. I went back to FireFox 3.6.16 until Tab-Loc is upgraded. Thank you for a great add-on!
The newest version is not yet reviewed but you can find it using the View All Versions link below.
The Tabloc icon is not visible while a tab is pinned as an App Tab, but it does work correctly, and the icon is visible again if the App Tab is unpinned. That's the way App Tabs work.
i used this before =D great addon for those vid sites that load slow, when i was going through a bizzaro watching everything phase. =))
suggestion: an auto lock feature, black/white listing for sites. no extra click =)
reg exp supported would be sweet =))
Very nice plugin.
The only downside is that, when you click a link on a locked tab, the new created tab doesn't get activated.
If you could fix that, it would be 5 stars for me.
Anyway, it's a great plugin
Es muy util , muchas veces trabajamos con varias pestañas abiertas y con este agregado, es muy seguro mantener nuestras pestañas mas importantes bloqueadas y protegidas...
Lo recomiendo al 100%.
Lock+Protect = Excellent
