After doing some version checking I decided to try the previous version, using a compatibility overrider, and with the previous version there's not glitch with status 4 evar. So it appears the update undid whatever the previous update fixed. Please fix?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

There was a definite clash with Status-4-Evar in v0.0.1. It *should* have been fixed in v0.0.2, although that was tested with a Status-4-Evar several versions back. I'd be astonished if v0.1 has any clash with Status-4-Evar. Please go to the support site and describe your settings exactly, and what happens. A screenshot would be nice. Unfortunately there is zero chance of me fixing something I can't reproduce from a vague review.

Excellent! It corrects an annoying Firefox "feature". Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for this extension, iann. It's simple and does what it claims very well. I'm using it with Firefox 7. It's a shame that this extension is necessary, disabling a new feature that was unnecessary, unwanted (even hated) by many, and should have an option in the preferences to disable it. However, you've provided a great service by stepping forward with this extension. Hopefully the Firefox developers will correct this problem soon and your extension will not be needed.

Works good, thanks for fixing the mistake of the lamer who tried to fix something that wasn't broken forcing us to use this workaround.

It doesn't fully work. I still get "moz-action:switchtab,..." in the urlbar, when I press down to delete the url. And of course the url doesn't actually get deleted, only disappears and its there the next time.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.2.1-signed.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

I'm trying a solution that should make this work more cleanly, including making delete from history work. It is slightly surprising to me that I've managed to do this so easily and I'm almost hesitant to upload it in case I missed something obvious. Anyway, try the newest version.

As for weird things appearing in the urlbar, it shouldn't happen. Not only shouldn't but doesn't, here and in most places. You may have a clash with another addon or some styling that I'm not aware of. Unfortunately I can't fix things I can't reproduce. Try posting more information in the support forum.

Thank you very much Rated 5 out of 5 stars

And why do Firefox developers hate their users so much anyway? I mean, isn't it strange that with new version you need to add an extra extensions to make your browser behave correctly?

Anyway, thanks again.

Clashes a bit with Status-4-Evar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Using Firefox 4.01. With "Status-4-Evar" addon. Status-4-Evar has an option to show loading progress in the URL bar. This is handy to have. But when Switch-to-Tab-No-More is active, it makes that loading progress line appear vertically centered, not under the url text. The effect is that the url text is pushed to the right. See screenshot:

Strange interaction of the two addons. Just FYI.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

Thanks. I have reproduced this here. I'll have to do more work to see why and if there is a way to fix it.

I've uploaded ver 0.0.2b beta, to work around both addons extending the same XML binding. This seems to work but may produce messages in the error console depending on whether Status-4-Evar is installed or not.

There is no option to turn off that feature - yes, but there is an easy work around - SHIFT or ALT key. Just highlight the "switch to tab" in the suggestion list and press SHIFT + ENTER to open in current tab or ALT + ENTER to open it in new tab.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

There are more workarounds. Holding down Alt or Shift actually changes the information displayed to show that switch to tab is overridden. Middle clicking (or Shift-middle-click, but not Alt-middle-click which will open the save page dialog) doesn't change the display but will open a new page or tab, subject to preferences. Ctrl-click will also open a new tab, again also subject to preferences. You can also manually edit the URL to remove the "Switch to tab" at the beginning and it will open the page in the current tab.

All of which begs the question, if it does all that then why not just a tiny little tweak to disable it completely :)

'Switch to Tab' works just great. Now I can open same web page many times with out the hassle of Switch to Tab. Thanks guys for the amazing work.

Works as expected. Thanks iann for making this. Why this feature needed to exist in the first place is beyond me. I mean seriously, are there thousands of people out there who are constantly opening new tabs and than going "OH NO!!! I already have that open somewhere else! Oh horror! Oh cruel fate! If only there were a way prevent this irreversible tragedy from happening again!" WTF Mozilla?

Thanks for making the plugin for the rest of us, that hate this "feature". Why is it that people need to force unnecessary and annoying "feature" on the rest of us? Two "features" are annoying me to no ends are:
1. win7/vista explorer auto refresh
2. firefox switch to tab (well at least now I can get around it with this great plugin).

The "switch to tab" feature doesn't play nice along with "Enter Select" extension so I want to disable. Unfortunately there's no easy way to do, except this add-on.
Works as expected.

I find the new Firefox 4 feature "switch to tab" totally unnecessary and quite annoying. There should be an easier way to turn this 'feature' off than by an add-on. In the meantime, thank you to iann for this Switch to Tab no more, which does just that. Wonderful!

PERFECT! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I HATE the new firefox 4.0 feature that means you cannot open the same tab in more than one window. Googling led to a lot of talk about tweaks and stuff I really could not be bothered to do, and then I came across this add-on which for me is perfect! Allows me to open the same page as many times as i need to! Awesome. FYI mozilla, people OFTEN need to open the same page in more than one tab. (They also need the 'Save and quit' feature AS DEFAULT but thats another story...)

For me this is an absolutely essential extension. Great work!
Just one little thing I noticed: When a page is open in a tab, but is not known in the browser history (this happens in private browsing) then the URL for that page can still appear as a suggestion when typing in another tab. In FF3 that did not happen and I think that it shouldn't happen here: showing it in the list under the navigation bar gives the impression that this page is part of the browsing history, even though it is not. Hence I think that it should not be shown at all.

The Switch to Tab Blacklist addon might handle the private browsing issue for you. You have to configure the blacklist to "*" wildcard to block everything,. Worth trying.

Since this so called "feature" came out it just annoyed the hell of me and have been searching for a solution since and came to this gem that solved my problem in a second, thanks for this add-on.

Helps but Need Duplicate Tab Function Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I frequently used cntrl-D to duplicate tab contents in IE. When I get knee-deep into a website and find part of the answer, I duplicate the tab. This allows me to keep a tab open to an area that I want to study while continuing my search deeper into the website in a new tab. While this add-on at least allows me to have Wikipedia, for example, open in more than one tab, I still have to cut and paste URL's switching back and fourth between tabs ... very inconvenient. I spend a great deal of time almost every day doing research and using cntrl-D. I was forced from IE9 by the lost of the search box. I cannot edit and re-use search terms since the terms are replaced by the visited URL ... a similar problem. Please add this ability to the contextual popup menu for tabs. And thanks for providing this add-on even without the duplicate function.

A little harsh to mark down an addon for doing exactly what it claims to do, don't you think?

Firefox supports tab duplication in several ways. Try middle-clicking the reload button, or ctrl-dragging a tab. Tab Mix Plus also supports it in further ways, and so do several other addons if you don't want anything that complex. I don't think there is a native keypress to duplicate a tab, but you can add a toolbar button or use one of the keyconfig addons to do it.

Thank you! I agree with mojo-chan. Why was this added? To make Firefox feel even more like Chrome? It's only an annoyance. It should be disabled by default or removed completely and reimplemented as an extension. At least give an option to disable it!

I use Firefox over Chrome for a reason. Making it a clone will only drive users away, not bring them back.
