    The most useful addon for Firefox4 so far!!

    Thank you very much.

    Thanks Dão, this is a really cool idea! One only needs to restart Firefox once, when installing the extension, but after that the changes in tab width are immediate and don’t require restarts any more. As a prerequisite one needs to get rid of any custom tab width settings in userChrome.css in order for the extension to work, but that’s fine I suppose, most users won’t be able to do such customization anyway.

    Ah, and the settings are stored in about:config, meaning that users that already set the keys there by hand will get customized tab widths by just installing the extension. Very cool :)

    Should the boxes be labeled min and max, instead of min and min?

    It’s strange to see that while Firefox is trying to copy a lot of feature from Chrome (tabs on top, horrible icons, menu button, resizable input textbox etc.) it deletes the important feature that allowed to have the minimum size for every tab, and allowed to reduce the use of the annoying tabs scroll.
    It’s sad to see that it needs the umpteenth add on to get what other browsers have by default. If you want a faster FF on startup, forcing the users to install another addon isn’t the right direction.

    I love tabs with constant width, so I can close them without looking, where the ’X’ on the tab is.
    There is a little bug in this tool. If I enter 1 in the max field, it shows 10. And if I try to type 140, it will show 1000. I can workaround using the clipboard, but this should be fixed.

    @Dao: TabMinWidth is still listed in about:config. Could y’all remove it or restore the functionality, please? Also, thanks for keeping this extension up-to-date.

    Just a little request/suggestion: Could we get an option to toggle on the left/right tab scroll arrows permanently? I may have missed a way to do this, but it’s quite frustrating and keeps this from being the perfect solution for stable tab locations.

    Thanks for the addon, though!

    Nifty addon! For those who want to retain the [close tab] X on shortened tabs, change the default length in browser.tabs.tabClipWidth in about:config.

    Even on shortened tabs, you can keep the “X” on the tabs by setting the clip width in about:config. Change the default size in browser.tabs.tabClipWidth.
