how do I display two tab windows at the salme time

Posted

I want to enter some data from one web site into a second web site, and therefore I would like to minimize both windows so that they are displayed at the same time

Thank you for your responses, and sorry it has taken me so long to respond. My observation is that both the windows snap feature and the fox splitter addon do nothing more than create new windows. Why then do I need tabs. The problem is that I did a poor job explaining what I am seeking. In other browsers, you can either "tile" or "cascade" all tabs, and can then resize, move, hide, etc each tab view individually, or you can close all by closing the main window. For my immediate use, I can use the snap feature, so once again I thank you for your responses. Note that I also tried the tab tile addon, but once again it seemed to me to be nothing more than the creation of multiple windows.

hello, you could use the snap feature that is integrated into the windows 7 os to view 2 windows side by side... http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/windowsexperience/archive/2011/09/23/what-is-snap-in-windows-7.aspx
