Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you for the new hot key (within release 2.6) - exactly what I needed! Now, this is *easily* five stars.
I use it together with verttabbar, to make the tabs stack vertically on the right edge of the web-page-area, and it works reasonably well.
Compatible with Autohide Tabbar Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It turns out that Autohide Tabbar is actually resonably compatible with VertTabbar. It's not perfect, but it works.

Suggestions Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I tried to email the developer with the following feature requests, but I seem to be blocked (as spam) by his mail host. Does anybody else want to try? (Don't forget to leave a comment here and tell if you succeeded.) The email address can be found if you click the link to the git-repository.--Thank you for VertTabbar -- it's an excellent extension!I would like to propose the following additions: * Auto-hide: A optional state in which the bar remains hidden, but appears if the mouse pointer comes close. (Currently, something like this effect is present if the browser is in full-screen mode)* A way to resize the width of the bar (when it is in its normalstate), by dragging its border.It this seems to be too much work, then a somewhat more lightweight butstill useful feature would be this:* A little button (perhaps an arrow) to *collapse* the whole bar so that the web-page can occupy the whole of the screen estate. And then,of course, there needs to be a button for expanding the bar again.

Works exactly as intended for me. I am using Firefox 3.6.3, with the following two preferences set in about:config as recommended:
browser.link.open_newwindow = 1
browser.link.open_external = 3
-- All links *normally* (exept pop-up windows) open in the same tab.
-- If I do Ctrl-click the link opens in a new tab. (It then opens to the right of the current tab -- but isn't that the default behavior nowadays anyway? I'm not sure that this extension is needed to achieve that anymore.)
-- If I click a link in my email-program ("external links"), the link opens in a *new* tab (to the far right).
Perfect! Without the extension, the "external links" open in the currently open tab. That is not good at all. What if I am currently filling in a form in that tab? I may lose that data then. This extensions solves this problem.
Regarding the recommended preferences in about:config -- I am not sure what the "extensions.tabsopenrelative.linksonly" setting does -- it doesn't seem to alter any behavior? Or does it?
