Before I begin, I've looked extensively here for this trick, but I haven't found it, although I know many of you may already know how to do this... but I just found out how to do it yesterday, and would like to share this in case any one wants to do the same.

If many of you are like me and have lots of tabs open in Firefox (or if you use IE), but then you want to sort them in a way where you can get from one tab to another, there is a simple trick/tip to do it.

Just mouse over the tab you want to move, and while you're over it, left-click on the tab, then drag it next to the tab(s) you want it next to, then just release the mouse button. While you're dragging the tab, there will be an indicator (a downwards pointing arrow) on the top of your tabs, in between them, letting you know where your tab will be placed.

I should have known about this trick/tip long ago, but I never tried it.

Happy Tab Sorting :thumbsup:

Another Firefox tip, in case you weren't aware of it, center clicking a tab will close it.

Along the same line, there's an extension you might be interested in:
Tabs Open Relative

..... makes all new tabs open to the right of the current tab, rather than at the far right of the tab bar.

So, if you have 5 tabs open, and you are clicking links in tab 2, all new tabs open next to tab 2, instead of tab 5.
Saves having to drag your tabs around, so much. :thumbsup:

Now that is what I need. I'm tired of my tabs opening up all the way at the right-end, but the tab I clicked on is the second one,, but now my newly opened tab is the 18th one.

Thanks so much for that one tg1911. I'm not sure I would have thought of remembering that that is a big problem for me. I just got used to dealing with it like that, but thanks to you... that problem is solved.

Great tip/trick tg1911

[Added Info]
I tried the center clicking, and it didn't work until I clicked on the roller button I have in the center of my mouse. It works like a charm. Now that,, I didn't know either.. but now I do. Thanks for the tip.. :thumbsup:

You're welcome, Walkman.

I tried the center clicking, and it didn't work until I clicked on the roller button I have in the center of my mouse. It works like a charm.

Sorry, I should have been more specific.
I call clicking with the mouse wheel center-clicking, as opposed to right, and left clicking. :thumbsup:
