Hmmmmmmmm, I must have tried this a dozen different ways and I could not get rid of "Open All In Tabs" by using userChrome.css.  I just tried again, and after only 7 months and change, I finally got it!!!   :Thmbsup:

Just in case anyone is having the same tab issue.

Hmmmm, that's the trouble with those Chrome modifications.  There always seem to be side effects.  I tried and tried to get a wrapped personal toolbar using them like Opera has by default.  It would sort of work, but then I'd lose my vertical scrollbar.

Maybe someone who is really into Tab AddOns knows of one that gets rid of Open All in Tabs without breaking stuff? I don't think I've tried a userChrome.css yet that didn't break something. :(

I'm not sure what you're getting.  If I close a tab, then click the Undo Closed Tab, I get the one I closed.  But I don't doubt something happened.  Like I say, every userChrome mod I tried has done something negative as well as positive.  I just haven't found the negative on my system yet. :)

You should post on that thread with the guy who posted the userChrome mod.  Maybe somebody knows a fix or that there isn't one(which would be my guess.)

Tab Mix Plus is causing problems in FF - latest build is purported to be 'compatible'! Hmm....  :huh:

I'm running Tab Mix Plus now(the development build from the referenced forum page) and so far it seems ok.  I really don't stress tabs though, so you can't go by my experience in this area.  About the most "tabby" thing I do is open 3 tabs at once by middle clicking a bookmark folder. :)

edit:

I don't seem to need anything in Tab Mix Plus but I like the little progress bar thingies.  Until I see a negative side effect I guess I'll leave it on.

+1 for TMP working in 3.5. I'm using multi-row tabs and it's working great :)

Ehtyar.

Mine is causing links to open in a new window instead of my setting of new Tab and leaves a blank untitled Tab! I also can't use the address bar to open sites. All this is fixed if I turn TMP off... :(

I'm using a Minefield nightly build from July 25 so my experience likely won't apply.
Did you get the development version from the forum link?  I tried the one from the normal Addons page and I took it off.  There should be a link to the forum with the dev build in this thread.

cat which version of FF are you running?  Might be better off, believe it or not, with Minefield.  I've been using July 25 nightly build and so far I see no reason to change it. :)

Do you use tons of extensions?  Have you tried Minefield? I haven't looked at the problem reports but it seems like they are taking a long time putting out 3.6.  Maybe they just don't want to upstage 3.5?  Seems stable to me anyways. :)

32 extensions - looked at Minefield, but seems a bit dicey according to problem reports... :)
