No multiple tabs preview in Windows 7 (worked fine in 4.0b8)

Posted

Under Windows 7, it was possible in Ffx 4.0b8 to see a preview of all tabs in the windows taskbar and select a tabs from the preview to show it. It was usefull, for example, only to check if the iGoogle page updates and there is new mail or this kind of things.

The taskbar icons looked like several pages when several tabs where opened.

Now, in 4.0b9, all this disappears, I can only see the preview of the actual active tabs and not the others tabs. I can't select an another tabs from the windows taskbar. The icon in the taskbar doesn't look like several page when several tabs are opened

You can get it back by changing a preference.

  1. Type about:config into the location bar and press enter
  2. Accept the warning message that appears, you will be taken to a list of preferences
  3. Locate the preference browser.taskbar.previews.enable and double-click on it to change its value to true

I was able to get multiple tabs preview back in the windows taskbar by going into options/options and click show tab previews in windows taskbar. So it works again, however, the preview image quality is not nice to look at, they are very coarse, in IE it is like they are smoothed out. And the resolution is better, you can actually read large text in the IE tabs, not in the Firefox. This also used to be the case in previous versions of Firefox. When the multiple previews disappeared in Firefox some weeks ago, the same thing happened in my Chrome browser. Could this be part of a Win7 update to spoil things for non-IE browsers? Any clues and/or solutions?

I have the same problem, though neither the 1: options/options and click show tab previews in windows taskbar.. nor the 2: Locate the preference browser.taskbar.previews.enable and double-click on it to change its value to true.. neither of them work because both of them already were set correctly, and / yet I still have this problem. I'm quite sure this is connected to the Group Tabs option I should have never clicked on because since then I can't disable this option, nor find anyone who has a solution to it. Any other suggestions on how to bring back multiple tab preview from after having enabled Group Tabs and being unable to disable it??
