[solved]Follower tabs

  • Opera online help mentions "follower tabs" as a component of the context menu, but when I right-click on a tab, the menu does not include that option. What I'm trying to do is duplicate a functionality I got with Tab Mix Plus in Firefox, called Lock Tab, wherein when a tab is locked, it stays at the original URL. When a link is clicked on in the tab contents, the link opens in a new tab. and when I do a new search while in the tab, the search results open in a new tab. When I type in a new URL in that tab, it opens in a new tab. The result is, when I have, e.g., the Gmail tab locked, that tab never navigates away from it. It sounds like a follower tab does that, so where is it?
    Also, when tabs are locked, they survive restarting the browser and rebooting the computer. Apparently, pinning tabs doesn't do that in Opera. Is there a way to force it? Thanks.

    Because you are looking at an very old help page for a very old version of Opera. The current help page - that you get by pressing F1 or by going in Menu > Help, like in any software - will not mention it.

    Not that I know. Maybe an extension?

  • Thank you. I would suggest to the folks at Opera.com that they specify the versions to which those pages apply.
