Update: A preference was introduced in Firefox 12 for allowing tabs on bottom. I’ve update the add-on to account for this.
With the release of the Firefox 10 ESR and the upcoming end of life of Firefox 3.6, I am getting more and more requests to add functionality to the CCK to make Firefox 10 look more like Firefox 3.6. Rather than add those features to the CCK, I’m providing a separate add-on to satisfy that need.
The Firefox 3.6 Behaviors add-on can be customized to provide the following four behaviors to Firefox 10:
- Display the bookmarks bar
- Display the status bar
- Display the menu bar (on Windows)
- Display tabs on bottom
All of these behaviors are enabled by default when the add-on is first installed, but it honors the user’s choices after that. If you would like to turn some of them on or off, unzip the XPI and modify the file firefox3.6.js. There are variables at the top that can be turned on and off. You can then use any zip program to recreate the add-on.
If there are other Firefox 3.6 behaviors you would like to see, please let me know and I will add them.
Add-ons like this and the CCK Wizard are supported by donations. If the work I do makes your life easier or helps you get your job done, you can show your support by donating for future work.
