Vertical Tabs

Thanks for fixing Vertical Tabs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

• Thanks for fixing Vertical Tabs so tabs can be moved by dragging them.• Please increase the vertical spacing so that Vertical Tabs don't look like crowded shingles with each shingle partially covering the the name on the shingle above.
• Please display the full tab name when hovering over each tab in Vertical Tabs. It is great that Vertical Tabs displays more of the words of a Tab's name than space allows in horizontal tabs. Vertical Tabs would be even better if the Tab's full name appeared when the mouse pointer hovers over a tab just as it does when hovering over the regular tabs in Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera and the wonderful FVD Speed Dial for Firefox.
• Please provide a way to rename Tabs within VerticalTabs. TabRenamizer currently works fine but the developer has announced TabRenamizer has been discontinued and WON'T be updated.
• Please, a right mouse click on a Tab should let users select Tab Properties so we can edit the Name field AND the Description Field. Unique among all the browsers, Firefox provides a Description field which can hold a paragraph of notes and memos.
• Please put the newest tabs at the top of the Vertical Tabs just like Firefox's History List of recently viewed pages.
• The "ColorfulTabs" Add-on/Extension provides rainbows of colorful tabs automatically plus the power to choose any colors you want. No tab coloring needs to be built in.
• Users of Vertical Tabs can install the FXChrome THEME along with ColorfulTabs to turn Vertical Tabs into a work of art.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4). 

Side Tabs

Side Tabs Wish List and Suggestions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

• Please display the full tab name when hovering ...
Figured out that only one comment or suggestion per person is allowed. Therefore I combined all my suggestions and submitted them all at the same time on Friday 130329 Revised 130401

• Please display the full tab name when hovering over each tab in Side Tabs. It is great that Side Tabs displays the first few words of a Tab's name. Side Tabs would be even better if the Tab's full name appeared when the mouse pointer hovers over a tab just as it does when hovering over the regular tabs in Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera and the wonderful FVD Speed Dial for Firefox.
• Please provide a way to rename Tabs within Side Tabs. TabRenamizer currently works fine but the developer has announced TabRenamizer has been discontinued and WON'T be updated and there are no other Add-on/Extensions to rename tabs in Firefox.
• Please, a right mouse click on a Tab should let users select Tab Properties so we can edit the Name field AND the Description Field. Unique among all the browsers, Firefox provides a Description field which can hold a paragraph of notes and memos. Need a handy place to remind yourself of a website's login and password, only Firefox provides it.
• Please put the newest tabs at the top of the Side Tabs list of tabs just like Firefox's History List of recently viewed pages.
• Side Tabs users while waiting for the ability to again rearrange or move Tabs can hold down the Ctrl key while dragging a tab to place a COPY of the tab in a new position. Then delete the original tab.
• And Side Tabs users can install the "Move Tabs" Firefox Add-on/Extension to instantly move a tab to the top or bottom of the Side Tabs list.
• Right click and select "Pin Tab" to move a tab to the top of the Side Tabs list and have it stay there.
• The "Tab Scope" Add-on/Extension works great with Side Tabs to provide an extra large thumbnail view of each website.
• The "ColorfulTabs" Add-on/Extension provides rainbows of colorful tabs automatically plus the power to choose any colors you want.
• If ColorfulTabs puts too much vivid color on your tabs, install The FXChrome Chrome like THEME along with ColorfulTabs to turn Side Tabs into a more muted work of art.
• Firefox is the only browser that supports animated favicons and so does Side Tabs. Go here to see for yourself http://www.iconj.com/

Side Tabs

Rename A Tab Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please provide a way to Rename A Tab within Side Tabs. TabRenamizer works great today but the developer has said he will no longer support it or fix it if it breaks. There are no other Firefox add-ons for renaming tabs. I rename most of my tabs so I can more easily find what I'm looking for which is the same reason I greatly appreciate Side Tabs..

Side Tabs

Show full tab title when hovering over each tab Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Side Tabs lets us see about five words of each tab name. It would be even better if the complete tab title appeared in a little box as we hover over each tab as it does in Firefox, Chrome, IE and Opera.

Rename This Tab Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please add the ability to rename a tab in Side Tabs. TabRenamer works well for now but has been abandoned and there are no other Firefox add-ons for renaming tabs. I rename most tabs because I find the keywords are too often so far to the right that they can't be seen. For example, it isn't helpful when the tab says "Welcome to the only website where..."

Side Tabs

Wish newest tabs were on top Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My number one wish is for Side-Tabs to be right side up with the newest tabs on top just as they are in the Firefox History list. The "Open a new tab" button is on top. And the newest tabs should be on top as well.
Side-Tabs is the dream Firefox add-on I've been hoping to find. I see from reading other comments that the drag-and-drop a tab feature worked until recently. I look forward to when it works again. I've found the Interim work around is to hold down the Ctrl key while dragging a tab. This will drag a COPY of the tab to the desired location.
Thank you Joshua English. Add a link to your site so those of us who appreciate your work can give you some much deserved pay.
