    Firefox updates...

    What would you add to firefox?

    I'd add two things, focus on the currently loaded tab, even if other tabs were loading in the background, I hate it if you're typing while other tabs are loading in the background, when they finish loading the focus is sent to them, so you start typing somewhere you can't even see!

    The other, Sound only in the current tab. I don't want some tab I'm not looking at to be talking/playing music etc... just mute them! You get two or three sites with sound and its horrible! The ability to mute a tab would be great too.

    What would you add?

    I would make it work with my fingerprint reader, got it two weeks before I moved over to FireFox and it has been sat on my desk gathering dusk since :-(

    There is probably an extension that does what you want mark, at least the first one.

    Same. I guess that is what stops it, because I haven't had a problem with it.

    They should really just integrate that into the build. Tabbed browsing is useless without it, I see people with multiple FF windows open.

    I have multiple FF windows open... 1 has three tabs... three e-mails... the other has three blogs... another has stuff I am working on tabbed out...

    I guess I organize windows with subject and tabs with pages.

    I meant people that weren't intentionally doing it like you are.

    Another thing...

    When you are on a middle tab and you open a new tab I want it immediately after my currently focused tab, not at the end of all the tabs.

    Also I want an automatic recent bookmarks folder in the bookmarks menu.

    that is all for now. thank you.
