Mike blogged about a problem with firefox extensions, in particular tabbrowser extensions. I used to be quite a fan of TBE but now I’ve found that I don’t really need the functionality of this plugin. However I do use the plugins ?adblock, autocopy , ieview, linky, local_install, all in one gestures,EditCSS, flashblock, web developer, colorzilla,tabbrowserpreferences and gmail notifier.
The TabBrowser Extension has been updated and no longer crashes Firefox. This is an almost essential addon as amongst other things its the only extension that provides a CTRL Click on a tab to close the tab. (It also provides functionality to open a link in a tab but this is available with other extensions). All the other ones rely on a middle click, and as I’m using a trackpoint mouse I don’t have a middle button and as I’m so used to having this facility it was a nightmare to not have it and to have to right click, then choose close on the tab.
