Shrinking Tabs

15 posts in this topic

Is there any way to shrink site tabs? Chrome and Firefox have this feature as a method of locking tabs which is nice as this makes room for additional tabs. I understand that I can lock tabs with this browser but the tab doesn't shrink.

That isn't necessary. Thanks anyway. It would be nice if this feature were added to the standard version however.

Does this skin shrink locked tabs? If so, how can I install this skin? I don't see any options to upload skins. Thanks.

Thanks. However, this isn't what I was looking for. All I am looking for is a way to just shrink the locked site tabs like Chrome and Firefox.

Thanks. I just want the tabs to shrink. I don't want to change the entire layout. I like the layout in the standard version but would like the option to shrink the tabs.

Hi everyone, our tech team is notified of your request and is working on it!

the devs have been asked for small locked tabs for years - certainly going back to MX3 - the request will be added to all the other stuff thats been asked for and forgotten

happy to be proved wrong - i seriously doubt it though :(

Hey MarkStrobel3367,

so, no, unfortunately you cannot shrink tabs, you can only lock them. There was no enough demand for that feature to include it into standard version. However, it can change if there are significant amount of requests for this feature.

its a long time since i played with skins - i gave up when looopings plastered them all over without permission but try this - my skins always come with a warning that they are only quickly tested so take them as they are

Is it just from the international forum or Chinese as well? As we've seen in the past there can plenty of threads made about a feature and they just don't get implemented unless the dev team already decided to add it.
