however due to the existence of a previous mod by Hendrik Lipka, a mere version string edit is possible to make this addon functional again. :D
Unfortunately, that only results in a partially-working extension.  It works for some forms, but is broken on many others.  If you look at STT's code, you'll see that it's extremely fragile; it hooks itself into Firefox by literally re-writing built-in handler functions (see the gratuitous use of eval in the source), and that's just too fragile and buggy of an approach.

I've done a complete from-the-ground-up rewrite of STT.  Works in Firefox 3 and newer and SeaMonkey 2 and newer.  In Firefox 4 and SeaMonkey 2.1, it takes advantage of the new bootstrapping mechanisms so that it can be installed and uninstalled without restarting the browser.  Oh, and it works more reliably than the old STT.  ;)

You do have to uninstall STT if you install TabSubmit (it won't automatically overwrite STT because it has a different extension ID).

Nice  :Thmbsup:

I lightly tested Ctrl-Clicking and Shift-Clicking with success :)

Heh, heh - thanks lanux128, for necromancing this thread. Completely off-topic, but as a result of your post, I re-read my last post here (from a year ago) and noted my comment about Maxthon and possibly trying it again. I didn't wind up doing anything in the intervening 11 months or so... until this morning.

this is a good time-capsule it seems. wonder how it look in another 11 months. ;D

I installed Maxthon 3 and found it to be pretty slick - it still has those glorious mouse gestures. However, I have IE9 tweaked to perfection and uninstalled Maxthon after giving it a whirl... As much as I like the mouse gestures, I've learned to live without them in the last three years. None of Fx's mouse gesture add-ons come close to the Maxthon feature and I've not found a Windows application to replicate them system wide, either. C'est la vie...

as you might know by now, i'm quite biased with Firefox. but hang in there, someday there'll be a Firefox addon that does the mouse gestures just the way you want.. ;)

I just want to point out that kliu0x52 has a bunch of great stuff he's created on his page in addition to TabSubmit.  Really nice  :up:

And, TabSubmit works great here -- thank you for it kliu0x52  :-*
