    Bug report:
    With TabMix Plus and Aging Tabs enabled, Firefox’ 3.5 “New Tab” button is on the left instead on the right.

    Any chance of aging tabs being made compatible with Thunderbird 3 BETA 3 and up ?

    You should add variable delay aging of tabs. That is, instead of aging each tab statically by a static X seconds, it should in fact age by X seconds the first time, age by Y seconds the next time, and then age by Z seconds the next time it should be aging. Where X < Y < Z

    This would age the tab fastest when it matters most (IE: When you are on the computer and browsing around actively), and least when it matters least (When you leave Firefox running overnight and come back). What happens right now is that I come back the next day and find all my tabs are BLACK (Thats the color I use to age) with no indication as to what is newest or oldest. I suppose I can increase my delay in seconds, but I find that my setting works good for short term browsing, but not long term.

    Either you should do this, or you should include some kind of exception for idle time (where NO browsing is occurring) where aging happens less and less frequently as idle time increases

    Basically I want the tabs to age initially fast, and less at later times, so some semblance of aging is still available if I return to Firefox the next day. Either provide dynamically adjusting aging times or use some idle time method to deliver!!

    Love the extension. With Themes Aeon Big/Jumbo, custom highlighted tab color does not work--stays light blue. You can change the highlighted text. Thanks.

    Currently, 0.7.1 doesn’t properly handle the first tab in a restored session: the first tab appears to be brand-new every time I open a restored session, even if it had completely aged in the saved session.

    Please make compatible with ColourfulTabs

    Love the extension. Having a compatibility problem with FF v3.5.8.

    Any ideas?

    Use FF 3.6.2!

    Congratulations for AgingTabs Firefox extension. I do not know how nobody thought of it before. I just suggest that you enable an option to customize tab titles in low relief and high relief as Mac OS. Thus, the fonts of the inactive tabs would be sharper. Thanks and greetings from Brazil.

    Possible bug to report:

    Custom highlight text color option disappears after the first time the user opens a new tab. The function also stops working and the highlight text returns to default.
    Installed v0.7.1 onto FF3.6.16 on ubuntu 10.10 (Meerkat).

    Thanks for a great add-on!

    Are you planning to update aging tabs for new versions of Firefox ? Keep up your good work please.

    I am using Firefox v3.6.27 and Walnut theme v1.8.81. Aging Tabs seems to have no effect at all. I have experimented with the options - no change. :^(
