Add a Search Box to the Drop-Down Tab List in Firefox

Do you have a lot of tabs open no matter what time of day it is and find sorting through the tabs list frustrating? Then get control back with the List All Tabs Menu extension for Firefox.

Before

If you have a large number of tabs open using the “Tab List Menu” can start to become a little awkward.

You can use your mouse’s middle button to scroll through the list or the tiny arrow button at the bottom but there needs to be a better way to deal with this.

After

Once you have installed the extension you will notice two differences in the “Tab List Menu”. There will be a search box available and a nice scrollbar for those really long lists.

Depending on your style you can use the scrollbar to look for a particular page or enter a search term and watch that list become extremely manageable.

    Get things done. If you have enough tabs open that scrolling is necessary it will never happen.

    Close them and sort your online life out.
