    Switch-to-tab… What a horrible, stupid feature, and it’s even worse that there’s no way to disable it! There is no freaking way I will install an add-on to disable a feature that should at the VERY LEAST be optional! Can’t Firefox do anything without installing a buttload of add-ons? I used to use Opera and Firefox about equally, but preferred Opera because it did what I wanted out of the box, no add-ons required. This Stupidity now has pushed Opera WAY up on the preferred browser list. FIREFOX FAIL! GOODBYE FAILFOX!
