Customize & Boost How Your Tabs Function in Firefox

Want an easy way to customize and boost the functionality of your tabs? Then you will definitely want to take a look at the Tabberwocky extension for Firefox.

Choose Your Options

Once you install the extension the first thing that you should do is go into the options. There are three categories of settings for you to sort through. At this point it is very much like a shopping spree…all that you need to do is select or deselect options to best suit your personal needs.

The “Tabs Area” allows you to decide tab behavior, tab closing actions, tab clicking options, tab bar options, and tab opening style.
