Is there any chance, for Dapper, of installing some tab extension as
standard (via Recommends) and configuring it to put a close button on
each tab by default. I've been using firefox since before it was firefox
and I didn't know about the middle click thing because there is no way
for it to be indicated on screen that that will happen, a close button
on each tab, however, will do precisely that. I *do* know about
right-click->Close Tab, but right click, move down and click again is
annoying as hell for some reason. Having used firefox at work, where IT
have installed a tab extension that adds the close button to each tab, I
can say with certainty that it is extremely desirable in order to give
Ubuntu that nice polish that a consumer OS should have.
