In a moment of madness, I decided to RTFM the latest Mozilla Firefox Feature List and came across this nifty ability called “Pin as App”.
It’s pretty handy, I’m using it to maintain tabs of commonly access websites or web applications that I need many times a day, easy to find since it’s always on the left in the defined order, and much smaller than the full tab size.
Only issue is that you need your remote site/app to have a decent favicon – if they don’t, you’ll just end up with a dashed square placeholder and there’s no way in Firefox to set a custom icon for that pin that I can see.
Awesome. Just awesome.
This is why we should read manuals.
Well F**K me I did not know about this.
So it’s just like Chrome’s had for ages? ;) it really is useful. Maybe you could edit the cookies/replace the icon in local files?
Yeah, might be possible with messing with the cache, or maybe even adjusting the page HTML with something like firebug before pinning the tab.
