I change the customization settings of one of my Firefox extensions quite frequently. After a while it starts to get old going to the extensions list and finding a particular extension in my list of 50+ that's installed.

I notice that, instead of a popup window, some extension open their settings in a new tab. Ghostery, for instance:


If I can open the settings to an extension in a new tab, I can easily bookmark the URL or even bind it to a hotkey.

If it helps, my specific extension is Tree style tab.

Is it possible to open a settings dialog in a tab instead of as a popup window?


Maybe you can try to write the url in the new tab's adress bar by your hand. Or Maybe you can try find what is your extension opening in about:configand modify it. (note: write about:config to the adress bar)
