Tab Mix Plus

The Tab Mix Plus is an add-on for Mozilla Firefox that is intended to enhance Firefox tab browsing capabilities. The add-on includes features such as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options and undo closing tabs and much more.

The add-on also features a Session Manager which allows users to restore closed tabs in case Firefox crashes.


As the name of the add-on suggests, Showcase is a handy add-on for Mozilla Firefox that provides you a representation of your tabs as thumbnails in a single window, tab or sidebar.

Such a view allows users to easily manage and control the tabs they open. There is also a find bar feature that allows you to find through many tabs the website you are looking for. Such a feature saves time and helps with user-friendly handling of tabs.  You can showcase you tabs in a new windows, new tab or in sidebar. However, using the extension can be confusing. To view the tabs as thumbnails, you can enable shortcuts from extension options or use default add-on shortcuts.

To showcase all the opened tabs in a new window, press F12. On the hand, if you want to view them in a new tab (just like speed dial in Chrome), press Ctrl + Alt + T. Last but not the least, to show all the opened tabs in sidebar all you have to do is press Ctrl + Alt + S. Or simply go to View menu in Firefox and display the tabs as you want if you cant remember shortcuts.

The previews are real-time and the user can quickly navigate, scroll and click links or buttons inside the popup frame window. The users need not go to the individual tabs itself to perform these task as they can be performed right from one tab.
