Off-topic : about tab layout.
Could you bring back the old "lock tab" setting as a 3rd option, please ? I really miss this feature and don't like how the tabs are handled when pinned :
- Icon only ? Tabs displaying library with differents filters = same icon
- Icon + Text ? I have the "show icon" option unticked because I want a clean layout with text only tabs. This setting make the option useless.
- dynamically resizing tabs ? Tabs are moving all around. I have few tabs set in stone. I know exactly where to click to open one of them.
- old "lock tab" setting : text only tabs, no resizing (unless you have too many tabs), disable AND hide the close button (yes, I like clean layout
About OP: I don't use links so I have no opinion about this, but like some users, I'd really like locked/pinned tabs with their own settings (e.g.: column browser with 3 filters for one tab, but 5 filters for another one, etc.)
