why is the "All Tabs Preview" feature removed in ff 21? https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=670684. Is there a way to still use it?

Posted

After the v21 update instead of the preview button, i get a list button which is useless for me since i need the search bar on the preview list and it was a great feature. It's a shame that it got removed instead of further enhancing it (Like making it real time)

Is there still a way for me to use this by any means necessary (Extensions and such)

After more digging, this provided some means to achieve the same result however, the original question still remains. This needs to be an original mozilla function not an extension. And the extension is still inferior to the original feature.
