I love tabs and have recently gotten way into extensions (esp. NukeImage and Linky).

My problem is this: when I open more than about 40 tabs (I know it's excessive, but I can hardly believe it all works as well as it does--thanks devs), which I think must be the max due to minimum tab size at 1024 x 768, the extra ones do not open until I close some and then the last tab is dysfunctional. Also ^D will not work at this point sometimes.

I'm on: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021207 Phoenix/0.5

Apologies for not searching this out too hard if it's here already.

PS I <i>love</i> this product.

Please try a newer nightly build. If you have extensions, try the 12/28 build. The next nightly that comes out for Win32 will have an important bug fixed.

Also, Tabbed Browsing Extension can help you with many many tabs by allowing you to adjust the maximum, and providing a scrollbar.

Though 40 tabs is a bit excessive.

Okay, got the extension. Like it. I will have to sort out the myriad features, but it looks good.

40 tabs <i>is</i> insane. They made it work so they must be the mentally ill ones.

Now can I get a keyboard shortcut with that? <ducks>
Because that would be slideshowy without Repetetive Mouse Finger Syndrome.

I was trying to show someone all of these pictures; I think they are neato:

Also would be good if you only had one hand free.

I haven't gotten any nightlies yet because I have been fairly impressed with 0.5 milestone stability.
I will do that in a day or two.

D'oh!

I thought for sure I had tried everything.
Alt>, Ctrl->, sitting on the whole keyboard, and then some...

That's why you need places like this. To combat idiocy.

Thank you.

(now can you make it just one key?)
