  • I have both the extensions you mentioned, but if I had to pick another extension to install, I'd get sessionsaver in a heartbeat. Saves a "session" of multiple tabs and reopens them.
  • sounds to me like neither one of you has found tabbrowser extensions: http://piro.sakura.ne.jp/xul/_tabextensions.html.en

    has everything you could possibly want to tweak about tabs and then some, including groups AND sessions. I reFUSE to run firefox without this. :)

    the other nice extension I am really getting to love is webdeveloper: http://www.chrispederick.com/work/firefox/webdeveloper/

    ahhh that's much better. :)
    • Web developer is way overkill for me since I don't do web development. And the tabbrowser extensions were also over the top.

      Not that there's anything wrong with them. They're just not useful to me.

    • I used tab browser extensions all the time... upto 0.9

      Then I realized it was overkill and slowed down the entire browser significantly. Figured that tab reordering and groups were neat, but the only thing I really wanted was a session saver :) FF is a lot more responsive without TBE, actually. To be fair, it's been a few months, so things might be different now.

      WebDev and Venkman are the two extensions that I can't live without when I do webby stuff. They're not for all users, tho :)

      • I've never noticed any significant slowdown here, myself, but I'm sure it's possible.

        http://www.flashforum.de/forum/showthread.php?t=149915 has a nifty trick for improving the speed of firefox browsing. Just pay attention to the english parts.

        Myself I like the fine-grained control over when and where tabs are launched, given by this extension, as well as the session control.
