2021-10-06 Firefox user 17066538 I love the idea because there is no middle click when working with a touch pad. But it has some weird unexpected behavior when opening multiple taps from one page and after closing one of those tabs it automatically jumps back to the page where i opened the links. I still want to read the other opened links and not jump back to the original page
2021-06-08 P R Lets you choose new tab position also, very useful.
2021-06-06 JohnTheBaptized Indispensable add-on! As Firefox spirals down in usability and becomes yet another "big-tech" tyrannical platform, em_te's small oasis "Tap To Tab" is a welcomed gift. In fact, with FF's latest debacle of version 89, I'm back on the ESR build until it too probably becomes unusable and worthless, and the search for a replacement user friendly browser, like FF of old, becomes inevitable. Enjoy this little gem while you can! Hopefully, the mob of petulant children who are currently running FF do not read this glowing review and ban this add-on as "they are only satisfied if you are not satisfied". Horrors if an add-on actually makes their ever decreasing market share monstrosity of a bit-player browser usable and, gulp, enjoyable. Don't tell the children! Shhhhhhh............
2021-03-13 Thomas Unfortunately this addon interferes with the "Drag-Select Link Text"-Addon (and it's relatives (I tried 3 different ones)). ... So it opens the link when it is not supposed to, i.e. when just clicking once and selecting the text of the link. ... Therefore I can not use it unfortunately. Could you solve this please!? ... It is possible, because "Double Click New Tab" does it! Unfortunately they can not open the new tab besides the old one! ... like yours so elegantly does. :-( Please!
2021-02-09 Sor Targol Definitely nice extension. One small request to the developer - could you reduce the minimum double-click time delay to, say, 100 or 50 ms? At the moment, I use the default minimum of 200 ms, and these 200 ms are visually added to the total link loading time. This is especially noticeable when left-clicking on different dynamic elements (for example, when left-clicking on another youtube video in playlist). It also doesn't work with your "Open Same Tab" extension.
