Firefox extension that automatically pins new tabs based on their URL.
To decide the tabs to automatically pin, user must define a set of patterns.
A pattern could be a plain text URL (like
http://www.google.com) or a
Official (signed) AutoPinTab releases must be installed through Firefox Addons website.
Development releases are unsigned so they require some manual steps to be loaded on Firefox standard edition:
- clone extension GIT repository to a local folder
- click "Load Temporary Add-on" button and select
manifest.jsonfrom cloned source files
To avoid these steps you can install Firefox Developer edition (it can be installed syde-by-side with standard edition)
NOTE: the unsigned AutoPinTab release will be loaded temporarily, so it must be reloaded each time you restart the browser.
Open a tab you want to be automatically pinned, right-click on its content and select the new AutoPinTab context menu item.
This menu contains items to quickly add current URL to your AutoPinTab patterns.
Now reload the tab (or open a new one) and check if it gets pinned automatically.
AutoPinTab is open source software, licensed under GPLv3.
