3.7 Stars out of 5
- by Zac99, 10 years agoRated 4 out of 5This addon works great against accidental clicks on the tab-close button, but I would appreciate if it would be able to disable the Forward/Backward buttons (also their shortcuts), close-Firefox-button, and any other possible one-click way that may navigate away from the current page, or cause the page to reload. I have a slippery mouse, and it sometimes jumps to the corners, where the top left and right corners mean a serious problem.
- by Kittyburgers, 11 years agoRated 4 out of 5Seems to work well on 3.5.
I would suggest changing the icon to a "key" symbol for lock instead of the pin. The yellow exclamation mark-symbol is fine. Also, the icon on the main extensions-menu needs to be cleaned up, as it looks rather blurry (as though it hasn't be scaled up properly).
Otherwise, nice extension.
- by Vonnie Voong, 11 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great addon but i don't understand what lock does and how can i activate it to do what it's supposed to do? Is lock supposed to prevent you from switching onto that tab or something cos when i clicked on a locked tab it switched to that, unless "locking" it does something else. Please help"Lock Tab" prevents from navigating to another URL in current tab.
Normally, new page is read in current tab when you click a link.
If the tab is locked, new tab is opened and new page is read in the new tab.
With "Lock Tab", new tab will be opened in background
(with "Shift Lock Tab", in foreground).
If not, please tell me the URL and the clicked link.

- by SharkDude21, 11 years agoRated 2 out of 5I used this add on on my fast dial page. It did the job of protecting the fast dial page but any links clicked on the fast dial page would open 2 tabs of the same page, like its duplicating every link once.
Had to uninstall until a fix comes up.I have fixed the bug, but the new version is still "experimental" now.
Please install new version from
- by Anijake, 11 years agoRated 2 out of 5Does not remember locked tabs between sessions. Permatab would remember tabs and reopen them when starting FF, this needs that option. Also when using Google reader clicking on the side links open a new tab instead of using the same tab.
- by Waylan Limberg, 11 years agoRated 2 out of 5Works great - Except with Gmail. When the Gmail tab is locked (regardless of protect setting for that tab), any links will open twice when clicked once. I've emailed the author with a full bug report.
