How to add permanent tabs to Firefox [Tip]

Firefox has various tab options, but you cannot add permanent tabs that always remain open on the browser. Well, actually you can! All that’s required is the PermaTabs Mod add-on for the Firefox browser which turns tabs of choice into permanent tabs.

To add the add-on to the browser, check out this page and click + Add to Firefox. When you’ve added the add-on, restart the Firefox browser. You should find a couple of temporary permanent tabs on the browser with an orange-tan color.

Now you can add some permanent tabs to Firefox. Open a Web page, and then right-click its tab to open the context menu below. There you’ll find a new PermaTabs option to select, and then click on the Permanent Tab option. That should turn it light orange to highlight that it is now a permanent tab on the Firefox browser. To remove a permanent tab, you click the same ticked option.
