Version 2.10.1

BRAND NEW: Multiple Configurable Actions for both screen-corner buttons!:  Firefox and Close buttons

With many new possible actions/features, including for mouse secondary, middle button, wheel, wheel left/right tilt, double-click and shift key combinations.
With Sounds alerts/effects (all configurable), and 3 preset buttons to start with.

New Actions include:   (See last screenshots added! - all details in options dialog)

  • Close Tab if no "Page History behind": Close your tabs without missing any previous browsed page. If there is 'something behind' It'll show the 'Page History' popup menu for review.
    I (the author) found this feature among the most useful when having so many tabs opened, including the sound alerting me when the popup appears.
    And there is also "Restore Last Closed Tab" (recommended for mouse secondary button) for quickly going back.
  • "Close last opened Fx window": close easily those annoying "pop-under" (spam) windows that keeps opening unsolicited (with sound alert when they appear).
  • "Zap iframes, Plugins, Images", etc from your pages. (Ie. for ads)
  • Stop Image animations
  • Recommended for Mouse-wheel: PageUp/Down and/or Select Prev/Next tab: so you can read the content in all your tabs with the mouse only (allowing more confortable positions in those long browsing hours)
  •   and many more!

  • With new option for doing CLICK (press and release) mouse button.
  • With Special Tooltips when mouse-hovering Firefox or Close buttons, showing all configured actions for the button.

    (Other Actions are: FullScreen, Maximize/Restore, quit-Application, "Line Up/Down" , "Page Reload", ...)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
  • Other New options:

  • For Fullscreen videos: Smaller (much less intrusive) "[Site] is now fullscreen" msg!
  • Stop Image animations! using SHIFT + ESC (like SuperStop addon)
  • New (advanced/"internal") default option: New style for "Top Edge (titlebar area) and corner buttons internal styling:". It will help a lot for more general compatibility and will allow incoming performance improvements (see dialog)

  • Options Dialog styling:

  • Drill-down (menulists) options now have the tooltip of selected option!
    And their options are now colored: green for recommended options and blue for default ones.
  • (Localizable texts: including now All new text/options and many more old ones)

  • For Fx 38 or later only.

    Btw, all these problems are also due for trying workarounds to the Firefox12+ issue that I reported in Feb-2012 at bugzilla (Anyone capable can confirm that It's something pretty easy to fix back without even interfering with Firefox standard behavior, but the bug-report is still in "UNCONFIRMED" state after all these seven *months*!) (more details in main page + link to bug-report).
    All this time were pretty much a headache due to this. This is also the main reason I can't attend the support-site like before. Thanks a lot to everyone for your reports and your understanding.
