Version 2.1.2012042301.1-signed 152.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

  • Improved: Better handling about resizing and moving of grouped windows. Now, switching workspaces on Linux don't break sizes and positions of grouped windows.
  • Improved: Add a new feature "stretch the window to the size of the group". In other words, you can hide other member windows to concentrate your eyes on a window.
  • Improved: Keep the size of the group smaller than the screen if possible. If you are trying to open a new member window and it will be out of the screen, then the whole group will be moved and resized to show the newly opened member in the current screen.
  • Fixed: Restore nested groups correctly.
  • Fixed: Disable "auto hide" feature of the toolbox temporarily, while in the toolbar customization.
  • Fixed: Free memory completely when this is disabled or uninstalled.
  • Fixed: Fix configuration dialog about platform specific workarounds.
  • Fixed: Don't hide the sidebar in grouped windows if Ez Sidebar is installed.
  • Modified: Drop support for the secret preference "shouldFixActiveWindow". Now, focused window isn't shown with complete UI until you set the window as "main" manually.

Version 2.0.2012040401.1-signed 147.5 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

  • Improved: The toolbox in split windows can be hidden/shown automatically.
  • Improved: On Linux, control overlapping order of windows more silently by wmctrl.
  • Improved: Add a new option to disable automatic-resizing of other windows (to keep window size ratio).
  • Fixed: Correct UIs for some options. They didn't work correctly: "When the 'Split' button in the toolbar is clicked" and "When the 'Split window' in the Firefox menu is clicked".
  • Fixed: Save and restore the state of grouped windows correctly.

  • Works on Nightly 12.0a1.
  • Improved: Window frames for grouped windows are now shrunken for Aero Glass (Windows Vista and later).
  • Improved: Now we can disable "auto rising" of grouped windows. To do it, set the secret preference "" to "-1".
  • Improved: Now the only one "main" window in a group has full UI and others have minimal UI, even if window focus is changed. You can change the "main" window from the menu of the toolbar button.
  • Improved: "Split" button works more intelligently (split to right, split to bottom, split to right, ...)
  • Improved: Scrolled positions of windows which are split from one tab are controled like a two panes in a window.
  • Fixed: Used-defined keyboard shortcuts didn't work.
  • Fixed: Works with single maximized window correctly.
  • Fixed: While you dragging something onto any popup, Fox Splitter now doesn't show the drop position marker.
  • Fixed: Scrolling by mouse wheel was too slow if the window was activated for "sync scroll".

  • Fixed: Extra toolbars didn't hidden actually even if it is unchecked in the section "visible UI in split windows" of the configuration dialog. Now, they are hidden correctly.
  • Fixed: After a split window is merged to another window, an extra blank tab was opened unexpectedly.
  • Fixed: When this is updated, unexpectedly activated even if this is disabled by user.
  • Fixed: Dragover on textboxes is now ignored.
