    Wink Unlock thumbnail previews for Firefox 3.6 on Windows 7

    By default, Firefox shows a single thumbnail when you hover the mouse pointer over its icon in the Windows 7 taskbar with Aero enabled. Here’s what it looks like:





    The problem is, this particular Firefox window actually contains four open tabs, and it could contain dozens. It sort of defeats the purpose of the Aero preview feature if you have to open a window before you can scan which browser tabs you have open. IE8 does it right, showing all open tabs in thumbnail previews when you point to its icon. So how do you add the same feature to Firefox 3.6? Simple:

    Open Firefox 3.6 (or later) and type about:config in the Location Bar.

    Affirmative,soumya !


    But..at least over here ,I noticed a down side.
    After minimizing Firefox the thumbnail previews won't reload.
    Could be my configuration...or it could mean it's still early days for that feature.

    Hello - Nice tip..

    Is this feature available for earlier versions of Firefox? I had updated and went to latest and greatest FF v3.63 but started experiencing hang-ups and slowness. I religiously do a registry backup before any type change/upgrade - so I restored then removed the newest release and installed an older copy v3.51 of FF. (knock wood) NO issues. Thought maybe one of my add-ons was causing the issue but tried safe-made in FF before everything and same.

    Regards George
