Learn about basic Tabs API

  • Firefox internal like how Close button works
  • Firefox internal like how Reload button works

Some of the questions asked by contributors during the session.

I have one doubt in last session. After restarting our browser extension didn’t work in Nightly but it work perfectly with chrome? by Barani In nightly we have installed in Debug mode, so it will be there only till the browser is active.

You can get started with Tabs API from the following video.

All the code samples discussed in the above video is available in the github, previously we have discussed about Tab.Close API in one of our blog post.
