multiple link addons not working on version 21.0


I have been having problems off and on with Snaplinks Plus (tab addon preferred by most sites I frequent), where it would glitch and stop working. Un- and re-installing it, though a nuisance, has been solving the problem up until now, but since I upgraded to the new version (21.0) of FireFox, neither it nor MultiLinks (which I used in the past) will function at all. I am on several sites where a multiple tab function is fairly important : is there another similar linking addon that will operate on 21.0, or a way to adjust Snaplinks or Multilinks so that they will run?

Chosen solution

YES! thank you, both for the specific info on Snaplinks, and a new trick with reluctant files, lol.

Here is the latest info I could find on Snap Links Plus:

I didn't see any updated information on the Multi Links extension.

Question owner

thank you - I downloaded the beta version you so kindly linked but the folder will not open to run it...I am a bit of a computer antique (older than Univac) - how do I get it to run?

If the file has the .xpi extension, drag and drop it onto an open page such as this one. Firefox should detect the attempted installation and ask you to approve it.

(An xpi may be viewed as a compressed folder by Windows XP, but you don't want to try to edit files in there.)

I just trying to find out when (or if) there will be a Snap Links Plus update that will work with Firefox 21.0. I don't like google and I do not want to join a google group to get information-I also no longer have a google email--but it won't let me change my email. THIS IS WHY I LOVE FIREFOX! I am using Multi Links now again...but it opens too many other tabs.... Please help me resolve this issue. Thank you.

Hi bunny2gal, according to this thread (no login required to view) updated 3 hours ago, Snap Links Plus version "2.3.2 will be available later today." Source: https://groups.google.com/forum/?from.../k4E4a4Uyqew.

Mozilla's add-ons site doesn't always provide access to new versions immediately because there is a review process. You could check the following later today or tomorrow:
