Tabbed Browser Extension from Firefox

Quick tip for you users of this extension in Firefox. I noticed my browser really slow down after using this for a while. And now I know why. It seems there is an unknown bug which bogs down this extension and makes some of its files grow beyond 100K. The good news is you can fix it. Save your tabs as bookmarks for opening later. Open the path to your profiles as in this example (C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.xxx\) and delete the tabextension.rdf and the tabextensions folder. Uninstall the extension and reinstall the latest (you may have to redo your settings but you can now export them as a .js). It's like having a different browser as it returns to its speedy ways.
