- by Mark B, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5With a name like "Tabloc" and a the description "Adds Lock Tab button", I am disappointed to find that this extension doesn't actually LOCK tabs so that that cannot be closed.
This extension only prevents the tab from being overwritten when you click a link inside the tab - it causes a new tab to be opened for that tab. That's great, but that's not what I was hoping for an extension with a name like "Tabloc".
"Pin Tab" doesn't work, either, because you can still close pinned tabs.
- by Firefox user 14148224, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5This extension does lock a tab and a link that would otherwise open in the same tab opens in a new tab. Nice. But if you refresh the tab, the lock goes away. A more minor event is opening a link from a locked tab makes the lock icon on the tab disappear even though the tab is still locked.
Nevertheless, I will keep it installed as the best we've got so far. Just have to remember to re-lock every time I refresh a locked tab.
I also tried the autolock feature. Does work, but it puts three lock icons on the tab that also disappear as described before. And any opened links from the same domain open locked with three lock icons!
Four stars as this function is so sorely needed, IMO, and am grateful to you for doing what you have done thus far. Any chance for working with the issues I described? Thanks!

2) The URL list only works when a complete URL is input. It doesn't respond to partial url's or wildcards.
- by Firefox user 13508508, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5It'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.
