    Isn't there a tab extension that expands when that tab's window is open ? This makes it quickly identifiable when many tabs are active.

    TIA

    Not sure what you mean. When I've got multiple tabs open in FF I see the tabs along the top. The one displaying is white & the others are shown grayed.

    There's Tab Mix Plus. It doesn't expand the active tab but you can customize the color and font to make it more easily seen. I don't know of anything that's exactly what you want. You might be able to customize the active tab with userchrome.css commands but I'm not sure, I've never tried it.

    Could you explain what you mean by "when many tabs are active."?

    What I believe is being requested is an extension that will make the currently active tab show up wider than the inactive tabs. The goal is to make it easy to see which tab is the active tab when you have lots of tabs open.

    I searched around for this and didn't find any. However, there are tins of extensions related to tab management, so it might just be a side feature of one of the more robust ones.

    Tab Utilities has that feature or the following line can be added to userChrome.css:
    Code:
    tab[selected="true"] { min-width: 200px !important; }

    This is precisely what I was looking for.

    That Tab Utilities is a pretty nice little add-on, and quite a bit lighter than TMP. I think I'm gonna start using it. Thanks for the link malexous. :)
