This add-on works perfectly, with one exception.
With browser.tabs.autoHide set to false, the tab bar is always displayed, even if there is only a single tab open. If the "Close current Tab" action accidentally gets executed in the last remaining tab, then the entire browser window is dismissed. It would be good to add a modified action that would close the current tab -- unless this were the last remaining tab open, in which case the action would be ignored. This would solve the problem of having browser sessions terminated unexpectedly due to losing track of the number of tabs opened.
Other than this small nit, the gestures work reliably. This is a great productivity improvement to the browsing experience.
Firefox 3.6.23 on Solaris 10 SPARC system
I agree with QueenOfStars writing on August 24, 2011
"the version numbering is off; you went from 3.1.7 back to 18.104.22.168 and it doesn't auto-update anymore."
The "make compatible" button no longer displays on the Add-ons menu and Force Addon Compatibility option from the Tools->Nightly Tester Tools menu does nothing.
Is there a plan to fix this and when will this be updated for Firefox 7?
A good tool. A couple of suggestions for improvements:
1: You cannot currently assign icons to folders in your bookmarks.
2: It would be nice to add a "Save" button on the properties menu so that the favicon for an existing bookmark could be copied to disk and then assigned to another bookmark.
