Duplicate tab for firefox 3.5 3

Until I saw this post , I was sorely missing the duplicate tab for firefox. It was near the top of my most loved firefox extensions till firefox 2.x. The addons page for this extension said it does not support 3.5. Well, and then I learnt 3.5 has a built in duplicate tab feature.

Just press the ctrl key and hold the tab you want to duplicate, drag and drop it to the place/area you want the new duplicate tab to appear. And thats it!!..

Life is simple now 🙂

    nice work around, its good to know things built within firefox without need for add-ons. On MAC its “option /alt” + drag the tab where you want to duplicate it…i usually prefer the space right next to it.

    Thanks so much! This was one of my favorite add-ins and it doesn’t work with 3.6. Now I don’t need it at all and won’t have to deal with getting it to work in every subsequent version of FF.
