Shame TWC doesn't seem to want to update. One star to The Weather Channel, and/or the original author(s) for slacking. 5 stars to the add on itself, and to Silverhawk, for linking an updated file which installs correctly.
The modified .xpi file at the link below works fine. Probably just a quick re-package that modifies a single line of text which says "I can work with Firefox version 'x.123", haven't checked. Easier just to download, for now. Might get the time to experiment some day. It's a pretty easy edit of one text file, and then zipping the file, renaming to '.xpi' extension.
Thanks "Silverhawk" - so dumb that this add on hasn't been "officially" updated. Glad you took the initiative and posted a link.
Now, what would it take for this to simply be "official" so that others can seamlessly update??? If TWC is too lazy to modify ONE LINE OF TEXT, it's really just pathetic.
I used the file linked here, thanks to Silverhawk, and had no problem - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=TCUGTUXT
Simply dragged/dropped the .xpi file into Firefox, restarted, and set my settings. Worked just fine.
Excellent piece of work here! An invaluable addition to Firefox.
Thank you for making a compatible version for Firefox 3 so quickly!
Anyone who doesn't think they could use this should try it - you'll probably wonder how you got by without it.
The closed tab LIST is fantastic. Ever close more than one tab in Firefox and wanted to re-open it?
Also, a simple middle click in a blank area of the tab bar, and you can instantly re-open the most recently closed tab.
Disadvantages? It takes a minute to configure.
It is beneficial to check out the settings to see what you're getting. There are one or two defaults that I do not like. Mainly, "remove tab mix plus menu list entries using middle click." This setting is found under mouse -- mouse gestures tab.
Basically, when you're surfing, middle click re-opens the last tab that was closed - I sometimes click with the middle button on this list, and instead of opening that tab I wanted, it's gone from the list! Kind of surprising at first, but since that can be disabled, I'd rather do that. Kind of disrupting to the flow of surfing.
Other than that, check out every setting, play with it, and you'll probably grow to like it!
