display all pages in Task Bar

Posted

Currently when I have several pages/Windows open, the Task Bar or the App Bar at the bottom only shows a single Icon. I would like it to spread every page across the Task Bar, so if I have 4 Firefox windows open, it has 4 Firefox tab in the Task Bar.

Hopefully that make sense.

I had a hard drive crash, and the previous version would do this, but the new install doesn't seem to. I'm sure it is just a setting somewhere, but I don't know what or where.

Hi bluewizard, Type (or paste) about:config in the address bar and press Enter select Accept the Risk and Continue in the search bar at the top enter taskbar look for the entry browser.taskbar.previews.enable at the far right click the Toggle button to change the value to True Close that tab or select Home.

Now, when you hover your mouse cursor over the task bar icon you will see a preview of all tabs which are open.

Question owner

Not quite what I was looking for. Though I may be mistaken. Yes, I can touch the icon and see a preview of all the open Windows/Pages. But what I want is all those open windows/pages spread across the Task Bar (down at the bottom, I think that is what it is called.)

However, as I think about it, I was previously using SeaMonkey, but I switched between SeaMonkey and FireFox frequently. I would prefer to continue using SeaMonkey but it has fallen too far behind.

Here is an illustration of what I'm talking about -

[Start][Several App Icons][Firefox W1][Firefox W2][Firefox W3][...etc...]

What I have now is -

________________________[preview1][preview2][preview3] [Start][Several App Icons][Firefox Open]]

I can live with it as it is, but it would be nice if at least each open Firefox Window has its own Icon in the Task Bar ... [Firefox W1][Firefox W2][Firefox W3][...etc...] Yes, that does make things cluttered, but it is what I'm used to.

Again... does that make sense? Perhaps the trauma of a Hard Drive crash has addled my brain.

Your brain is OK. I wasn't sure that you were looking for a separate icon for each Window.

Take a look at Wesley Branton's post in your other thread.

Now, you can have both options.
