Firefox is one of the most well-known web browsers out there, with a wide list of features and capabilities when it comes to offering you a pleasant Internet surfing experience. However, you can still improve on that, by extending it with useful add-ons and utilities, depending on what new features you require.
Take full control of your tabs
Tab Mix Plus is one such Firefox extension that aims to help you manage your tabs easier, by offering a wide range of settings meant to improve accessibility and to let you customize their behavior. Hence, you can change how link opening is handled, as well as control every event action down to the last detail.
One of the most powerful features delivered with the utility is its ability to force the browser to work in single window mode, which prevents any new instances from being opened, either manually or automatically. Thus, regardless of what you click on, the addresses are always placed in a new tab, rather than in a separate window.
Customize events and tab display options
Events are basically actions that take place whenever you do something in your browser, such as create a new tab or close one. Tab Mix Plus allows you to modify what happens whenever you perform one of these actions and optimize your overall Firefox experience.
Hence, you are allowed to automatically focus or select newly created tabs, depending on whether it is a duplicate tab or it was opened from the search bar. In addition, you can also use the middle button on your mouse to open the items in the current tab and avoid cluttering the browser with unnecessary new instances. The same is true for when you want to close or merge a tab, although you can also set up warnings for each particular case.
The display options, on the other hand, are used to show or hide various elements when it comes to your tabs, as well as highlight the unread ones. The tabs can also be locked, protected and customized to auto-reload every couple of seconds or minutes and you can choose to display special icons for each separate instance.
A fully-featured Firefox add-on
Thanks to the truly comprehensive amount of features and customization options provided by Tab Mix Plus, there are very few things you cannot modify when it comes to the way you navigate on the Internet. In addition, it also includes a powerful session manager, which is able to protect your tabs and recover them in the event of a system crash, without losing the information contained by them.
Tab Mix Plus provides you full control over your Firefox tabs and windows, as well as a powerful session manager to perform crash recoveries after a browser error.
The add-on also allows you to pin and protect important tabs, as well as force every website to open in a new tab instead of a separate window.
