Tab Mix Plus enhances Firefox's tab browsing capabilities. It includes such features as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options, undo closed tabs and windows, plus much more. It also includes a full-featured session manager.
Collector's Note The single most important addon in this collection. Other addons have been chosen to work with Tab Mix Plus.
Show tabs like a tree.
Collector's Note Use it only if you use only a few addons. In such a case you will absolutely love it. But, if like me, you use 150+ addons, this addon conflicts with other addons and slows firefox down. Overall a great addon.
Open Bookmarks/History/Homepage/URL/Search in new tabs, and more utilities for tabbed browsing, including Protect/Lock/Faviconize/Unload Tab, Reload Every, Select and manipulate multiple tabs simultaneously, Tab Stacking/Coloring, etc.
Collector's Note More powerful than even Tab Mix Plus. It supports tab stacking like Opera browser. If you use Tab Utilities, you don't need many other addons, like Multiple Tab Handler for example. But it is less compatible with other tab related addons than TMP is.
Provides feature to close multiple tabs.
Collector's Note The second best addon on this list. For it to work with Tab Mix Plus, you have to change the settings for Shift click and Ctrl click(on Tabs). If you do this the two addons will not conflict. (The authors of TMP and MTH, have communicated with each other and this is what they recommend. If you install both of them together, then on restarting firefox a dialog will open up telling you to choose to keep either all of TMP's functions or all of MTH's features. I recommend that you keep all TMP's features and later change TMP's settings to set Ctrl click and Shift click on tabs to do nothing. Once you disable these, the MTH's Shift click and Ctrl click functions will automatically take over)
TabGroups Manager helps to classify and organize tabs by dividing them into Groups. Because tabs become easier to manage, you can never have too many! TabGroups Manager is ideal for tab power users.
Collector's Note Is a game changing addon as big as Tab Mix Plus. An absolute must have.
Hide Tabbar by mr321
Hide the tabbar by just pressing a key.
Collector's Note There are 2 or 3 addons out there which hide the tab bar. This in my opinion is the best of them. It can autohide tabs after the time interval you set, or you can also set a hotkey to hide the tabbar when you press it. Useful in fullscreen view. It can also be used to hide your tabbar if you don't want someone else who might be watching to which tabs you have open.
Automatically close unused tabs (keep only N most recent tabs).
Tab grouping, vertical tab tree, multi-rows, and various tweaks for power users.. Firefox 4+ compatible!!
Collector's Note Has many of the same functions as Tab Mix Plus and Tab Utilities. So, if you use this check the settings carefully so that both the similar addons are set to act in the same way, otherwise there will be conflicts. Its best feature - It adds entries to the Tab context menu to sort tabs by domain, by opener, by name, by last visited etc...
Collector's Note Press Ctrl+Left or Right arrow key to move a tab's position on the tab bar. Good to have.
Load tabs one by one.
Collector's Note If you try to define a certain number of tabs, say 3, then tabs do not start loading at once. The 4th tab will open only after the first 3 have loaded and so on. If you want to open a tab before its turn, then simply click on it(The tab gets loaded on demand). Very very useful.
Access firefox tabgroups using a dropdown menu.
Collector's Note If you have TabGroups Manager, then you do not need TabGroups Menu. Those who use smaller screens might prefer TabGroups Menu even though it has far fewer features than the bigger addon TabGroups Manager.
Move to the next tab or the previous tab with a key.
Collector's Note You may or may not like this one. lets you set shortcuts to move from Tab to Tab. I have set F1 to move to the previous tab and F2 to move to the next tab, F4 to close Tab and so on. It also adds 4 entries to your context menu. If you don't want the context menu items, you should hide them with the Menu Editor addon.
When click on the selected tab, a history menu corresponding to it will display.
Collector's Note On Left clicking a tab, the history of the tab is displayed in a drop down menu. Its main use is to help you create a minimalist interface - After installing this addon, you can remove the back/forward button from the address bar. Please note, however that this addon takes some getting used to because you usually use the left click on a tab to shift and select tabs. Also, if you use TMP with it, then you need to change the settings for left click on a tab, so as to allow this addon to function.
Adds a Tabs menu to the main menu that lets you easily change between tabs.
Collector's Note I recommend that you check out the other addon lists that I have created as well. For example, this addon works better alongwith another addon called 'Personal titlebar'
