What is Popup To Tab?
'Popup To Tab' is a Firefox Add-on designed to provide a clean and organized browsing experience. It efficiently converts all popup windows into tabs, preventing multiple windows from cluttering your screen. Even better, it requires no discernible permissions, ensuring your browsing remains secure and uncompromised.
Hate it when websites open their portals in a popup window because they're so special and need to hide the back and forward buttons? Chrome has the ability to convert popup windows into regular windows by right-clicking on the popup's system icon and choosing "Show as Tab", so why can't Firefox?
With this add-on you can now turn a popup window into a tab window and merge it into your main tab window. That way everything fits neatly into your tabs and you don't have windows flying everywhere.
The next time you have a popup open, simply right-click on any tab in another window and choose "Move Popups Here" and any popup windows will be merged into that active window as a tab.
I am pleased to report that this extension requests no discernible permissions, so you may use it in complete confidence.
