[Tech update] Firefox config tweaks
April 12, 2007
Sharing this to all fellow Firefox users (Time to switch if you’re not one, say “No” to IE!). I find this article quite useful especially the tab close button tweak.
Tab close buttons
Fx 2.0 only: Another tab interface change in Firefox 2 is the addition of a close button on each individual tab. I happen to love this, but some hate it, saying it causes them to accidentally close a tab when just trying to switch to it. If you’re a hater, revert to the Firefox 1.5 behavior by changing the browser.tabs.closeButtons value to 3. This will not display close tabs on individual tabs, and turn on a single close tab button at the right end of the tab bar.
* Key: browser.tabs.closeButtons
* Modified Value: 3 (revert to Firefox 1.5 behavior)
* Alternate Modified Value: 2 (don’t display any close tab buttons)
* Default: 1 (display close buttons on all tabs)
