Can you please give a small response just so the users know that you are alive?
You don't need to show progress or even give details. But a little answer would be nice.
If you don't have the time or patience for this, its alright. Its your right! Your work!

But please say something.

Last commit was on April 5th. Yikes.

The main issue I see is that Tab Utils conflicts with NoScript. I asked in the repo whether there was an exception we could add to NoScript that would at least give us a workaround. So far I haven't found anything.

Noooooo

I found only two bugs in ESR release and Palemoon is based on ESR24+31 code so 99% of TU functionality should work fine in both ESR and Palemoon. So it is not surprising ithinc is not too active on the forum lately - there is simply nothing to fix in TU. Since he didn't say anything about FF33, I guess ithinc is not planning to fix TU for 33 at all.

What about Nightly, I have some bad news:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1048511
(Gomita, creator of FireGestures)
It seems that major code rewrite is needed to support e10s, since the add-on handles many DOM events which are invoked in content-level

I started code rewriting yesterday and I noticed that it is easier than I expected with the use of some compatibility shims, CPOW objects.

However, major rewrite is still needed for the full compatibility with e10s.
Using compatibility shims is only a temporary measure.

It looks like another rewrite is needed to make TU work. Goddamn, Mozilla! :x

I'm using Firefox 31 and can't get the tab counter to work correctly. It shows how many pinned tabs I have but a 0 for any others. Anyone have any ideas on how to get it counting again?

So it looks like this add-on is dead. Maybe we need Tab Utils Phoenix to come back as Tab Utils Phoenix Phoenix :)

True.

I emailed the developer of Tab Utilities with no reply yet.

So just to see what would happen I upgraded to version 32, 33, and then 34 using the GitHub release people were talking about in reviews. It fixed the arrow buttons in 32+, but did not fix the address bar problem in 33+. It's pointless opening a new tab because you can't use the address bar, but there are workarounds. You can open a bookmark or any link to a new tab and then use it.


I of course am still having the issue of not having my tabs being counted. It just says 0/10 for my 10 pinned tabs.
