For LuNaTiC:

not uploaded yet, but it´s working! (bugs)

Init TabScroller: Menu pops up: the actual tab is highlighted (as before), the previous is in italic. Release button
and the previous will be activated. It´s only working if you change tabs with tabscroller!

maybe tomorrow.

I'm willing to give the whole HistoryScroller thing a shot, if no one's started work on one . .

Joe 4711,

Your last version does not work if a tab is deleted between two "Tab Scroller" gestures.

Thanks 4711! This versions seems to work fine :-)

Prior you get in trouble:
You need to disable the last installed version of "Change tab with mouse wheel". Otherwise you are not able to use TabScroller.

A better solution is to uninstall the old one. .... but, does anyone know <b>how to uninstall an extension completly?</b>

  1. Exit Phoenix
  2. Change to the chrome dir of your Phoenix application dir
  3. Delete chrome.rdf and the overlayinfo dir (they are regenerated on next start)
  4. Delete <extension>.jar (or the <extension> dir, if it's used unpacked)
  5. Remove every line with a reference to <extension> from installed-chrome.txt (usually there are two: one to the content and one to the locale)
  6. A few extensions might use additional files; TBE for example has a tabextensions.js in <Phoenix dir>/defaults/pref to store its defaults in. Search through your app dir for such files and delete them.
  7. Restart Phoenix

It's probably a good idea to make backups of the files/dirs before deleting/changing them to be able to restore the status quo in case anything goes wrong.

Uninstalling themes. Hmmm. For those of us who are installing nightlies, it's more a matter of what extensions we reinstall each night. (Yes, yes, I know there are ways to avoid having to reinstall, but then one would not have quite a clean new profile . . .)

Feature request (sorry keeping you busy :P)

At this moment, the switching between the two last pages works fine, BUT:

it doesnt work when you are on page X, and on that page X you open a link Y in a new tab. In my settings, Phoenix immediately goes to page Y, but when i use rightmouse + scroll, i _don't_ go back to page X.

Can that be fixed maybe?

Also the text in the menu doesnt represent the right tab sometimes.

Okay, about the History Scroller:

I'm working on the extension, but as it's my first Moz/Phoenix extension there are a few bugs I'm ironing out . . i took 4711's code as a starting point, of course I'll give you full credit for it. If you guys want to post four or five must-have features I'll make sure I get them in before the 0.0.x release ;-)

Thanks for the TabScroller, I love it!
(funny to thank 4711 from Cologne! :mrgreen: )

I think the Tabscroller is great, but I like the idea of a history scroller too, and I'd really be sorry not to be able to have them both installed and enabled. Couldn't someone sometime have mercy and make them work together?
It wouldn't have to be a handy button or checkbox to toggle between them, a flag set by hand in some preferences file would be enough, I think, if both extensions would look for the existence of this flag (it only makes sense, if both are installed) and for it's status (true/false or whatever) before taking over.
But then, it 's probably as easy to enable/disable them...

And just imagine (we're allowed to dream, aren't we?) a combined Tab-History-Scroller! Right-click, the TabScroller-Menu appears and works as it does now. But if you move the mouse towards the far end of the menu (say, past its middle or so) a sub-menue pops up, showing the history of the selected Tab. Scrolling now would highlight different pages in that tab's history.
You could scroll (kind of "through space and time") from Tab A to some page in the history of Tab C with just one mouse move!
Well, I told you, this is about dreaming! :wink:
