All new tabs and popups are closed automatically when Tab Freezer is active for a page. Close popups/tabs automatically that open from invisible overlays you click on.
What is Tab Freezer?
Tab Freezer is a Firefox add-on that automatically closes all new tabs and popups when activated for a specific page. It prevents unwanted popups and tabs, allowing for a smoother browsing experience.
- "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" needs to be activated in the FF options
How does it work? The initial idea behind Tab Freezer is to prevent unwanted popups and tabs from clicks on invisible overlays. Activate Tab Freezer for a tab by clicking the Tab Freezer icon on the right of the navigation bar. Click again to deactivate. When active, all new tabs from the URL of this tab, created by you on purpose or not, will be closed automatically.
The Tab Freezer button does not work globally. Tab Freezer blocks by domain. For example: if you are on "www.mozilla.org" and activate Tab Freezer on this tab, all current and future browser tabs and widows with "www.mozilla.org" will be blocking new popups and tabs. URL "addons.mozilla.org" will not be frozen, a different subdomain makes it a different domain for Tab Freezer .
Tab Freezer will remember you blocked domains between session.
Tab Freezer may not be safe to use and it requires some risky permissions. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.
Tab Freezer has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
