Middle click to reopen closed tab

Posted

Hello, is there a way to reopen the last closed tab with a middle click on the tab bar? A preference in about:config would be better, or a very simple addon (preferably with only this feature). I don't want to install "monster" addons like Tab Mix Plus or Session Restore.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, but using very often the middle click I would prefer using it rather than a keyboard shortcut.

You would need an extension that supports the current beta release to achieve this.

You could look at Tab Mix Plus to see if that works for you, but TMP is a very big extension that gets broken quite a very times and would be overkill for just this feature.

There are extensions that offer a toolbar button that might work.

Does disabling multi-process (e10s) work if that is currently enabled?

I'm afraid it doesn't. I keep the e10s disabled in beta since I'm still using extensions not fully compatible with Electrolysis (such as NewsFox).

I used to have this extension installed in the past, and I did my best to get rid of it - successfully. It has too many features for my needs.

Thanks.


edit: the developer of "Middle click to go back" has answered me saying that he would update the add-on. In this case, the problem for me would be solved.
