ctrl+tab preview button?

Unread post by RiskyRaccoon » 2017-11-10, 11:21

Hello! I'm new to Pale Moon and I'm liking it so far.

I realize that in order to use ctrl+tab and ctrl+shift+tab to switch between tabs is done by setting browser.ctrlTab.previews to false. However, is there a way to have a button that makes it pop up in my navigation bar? It seems like a useful feature, I just don't want it cramping my keyboard shortcut. Thanks!!

If you look at the right of the tab bar you'll have a button that will open the tab preview pane. Please do note that this is only available when you have tab previews enabled.

Also with browser.ctrlTab.previews set to default true you get the same result as the "List all tabs" button located in the upper-right area of the tab bar by using ctrl + tab or shift+tab to navigate to the button pointed out in the screen-shot below and selecting that button "show all tabs" (in this case "74" tabs):
