Firefox Quantum and Tab Mix Plus alternatives

Thu Nov 30, 2017 11:39 am

With Tab Mix Plus in the process (but not quite ready yet), here are a couple "new tab" add-on links with familiar attributes that I've stumbled across recently.

One automatically opens new tabs from bookmarks, while the other new tabs from search bar entries.

i was also looking for a tabmix plus replacement but i found i could do everything i wanted in about:config
here are the settings im using, its a single window mode config
browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction [0]
browser.link.open_newwindow [1]
browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external [3] -opens links from external apps in new tab
browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground [true] -open external tabs in background
browser.search.openintab [true] -open search in new tab

i forgot what the first 2 do, but its easy to duckduckgo them

That's great, thanks for adding those possibilities.

I choose the easy (lazy) method! :D
