Tree Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Kroppy, you've done all us FF users a great service - THANK YOU! As a long-time user of Tab Folders (and all the various add-ons that worked up until WebExtensions killed all the great add-ons I'd used for years) I was in limbo until I stumbled on TT. You've given us all a way to organize the dozens of tabs and access them easily. And you listened to all of us begging for folders and groups and you built that in, as well.

Now I just need an idiot-level tutorial to figure out how to USE all these marvelous tools...

Open Link in New Tab

Love it! PLEASE port it over to a WebEx! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Used this for years! Makes surfing so much easier - I'd much rather Rt-Click to open a tab in the CURRENT tab than the default way FF has it set up! But nobody else has an add-on, much less a WebEx that allows this simple change!
Thanks to Piro for building this one, but it looks like he's dropped it for good (no updates in a year). So I doubt he's going to rebuild it as a WebEx.

Well, hopefully, it'll still work until 2018 when they unplug all add-ons. Maybe by then, some genius will have a WebEx for this function!

Tree Tabs

Coming from Tab Groups, it's nearly a 5! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Many thanks to Kroppy for creating this WebEx! I can tell he went through a lot of work to integrate all these features and there it sits, beside this window, with my tabs just a click away! There's room on these "side-tabs" for the favicon of the site and I've already gotten used to mousing over to the left instead of the top of the page, to get to them. Having that little toolbox above the list is convenient, too.
IMPROVEMENTS:
• For us TAB GROUP-AHOLICS, please DO find a way to put a "Label" tab on the list as a parent, so we can put our tabs of that category under them as children. That would make this app the perfect replacement for all the Tab Groups add-ons.
• Could you make it easier to edit the parent/child status of each tab? Right now, it's difficult to change one it's set up.
• Also, is it possible to make the tabs at the top of the page disappear, to reclaim that screen real estate?
• One wild wish (and nobody has a WebEx for it yet, to my astonishment!) is simply to have the option to open all links in a New Tab instead of the Current Tab! Don't know if that fits in or not, but there it is!
Thanks Again!

Thanks again to Evan Eveland, for this wonderful extension that worked so well in past versions. However, it's broken now, at least in FF21 on Windows 7, 64-bit.

I've asked for instructions from MaK77 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since nobody in the Whole Wide World has posted any instructions or explanation for the options, etc. and how to USE this add-on, I traced back the author to his Italian blog, used Bablefish to translate a page and found an email address. I'll post his reply (if he doesn't post it here, which he probably will).

Such a simple, yet useful addition! I've used it for years without a hitch. Should be standard equipment in Firefox.
