Tab Mix Plus Compatibility with Firefox 3.6


External ImageAs long time readers may recall, I LOVE the Tab Mix Plus (aka TMP) extension for Firefox. Not only does it enhance the configurability and features surrounding Firefox tab functions, but it also offers better session management and now, apparently, also allows you to add additional useful toolbar buttons (e.g. Print). I have therefore become very sensitive to installing major Firefox upgrades right away, because I don't want to lose any Tab Mix Plus settings because of incompatibility issues.

After dismissing several nag messages lately from Firefox asking me to upgrade to version 3.6, I finally decided to install the latest Dev build of TMP on a secondary PC, and then upgraded to Firefox 3.6. The conclusion, it works fine for me, or at least i don't lose any of my open tab settings after restarting Firefox. Note that I am running Firefox on Windows XP.

It's possible that even the latest "official" release of Tab Mix Plus ( will also be compatible with FF3.6, but I'm not going to perform any more experiments to find out. If you have tried this please report your results by commenting below.


1 - Hi Kevin,

I am in the same boat as you are (love the TMP!). I also broke down after dismissing the upgrade to FF 3.6 message several times. In my experience, everything in TMP is still working normally. So, you can *probably* count on the same.

2 - .3.8.2 works fine for me on 3.6 now!
