I'm looking for a Firefox addon that will let me open a bunch of tabs like this:


And then click a button to open a specific link on each page. For instance say there is a link on each one of those pages that is always in the same place that takes you to another section of the website so the result would be like:


For example, if I have a bunch of superuser.com questions open in tabs then I want to press a button and then have each tab "click" the link that goes to the OP of the question's user page.

Or say if I have a bunch of google search results open in multiple tabs I want each tab to open the link to the first result on the respective tab pages.

Any such add-on exist? Thanks!


Seems that this would be too niche a requirement for an extension to exist. You need to define which tabs are included, and how the link you are referring to should be identified.


Perhaps an alternative approach might be to use something like autohotkey, where you define a hot key that did something like:

  1. Focus firefox
  2. Alt-1 for first tab
  3. Focus page area
  4. Press tab 'n' times, where n takes the focus to the correct link
  5. Press enter (opens link)
  6. Ctrl-tab to go to next tab
  7. Go to 3 until all tabs actioned

Extension Based

If you'd prefer a extension based solution, then the vimperator extension allows for macros to be written that can control firefox, and so could be used to drive the sequence you are after

    Care to elaborate? I have added an extension based option. – Paul Jan 14 '12 at 10:58
  • I see the extension you shared but I don't understand how to use it to do what I want. – Funkafied Feb 4 '12 at 11:43
