Windows 7 has really nice features. The preview for opened applications in taskbar:

Especially if that application has several tabs.

However this feature doesn't support Firefox (or vice-versa: Firefox doesn't support this feature!) and you just see the current active tab in preview and not all opened tabs:

  • Is there any way to make Firefox tabs visible in preview?
  • Does Mozilla published any patch/extension/... for this?
  • Is there Any Hack/trick/config-changing stuff to make this feature possible?

I believe Firefox 3.6 beta at least is required, and it is not yet perfect, but they are working on it (hence why it is not enabled by default yet):

  • Type about:config in the address bar and filter to browser.taskbar.previews.enable
  • Change this value to True
  • Enjoy tab previews!

aren't they gone RC with 3.6 already? – Molly7244 Jan 9 '10 at 11:59
Yes, I was just stating that beta is the minimum requirement. The feature is no better in RC than it is in beta. They plan to refine it with updates to 3.6. – John T Jan 9 '10 at 12:18
Thanks. So we have to wait for 3.6 :D – Isaac Jan 10 '10 at 9:52
