Hi, 

I've attached a spec for the Overflow Menu (now Tab Manager) that will be permanently visible - and not only when there is an overflow of tabs.

The link says "Sign in to Mozilla" and I'm not sure what kind of login information mozilla.invisionapp.com expects from me. Can you please attach the spec here or otherwise make it available publicly?

Hi, 

The login is your mozilla email and LDAP credentials. I've updated it with a public link.

Regarding the pointer to my bug 1520364 (which was rightly marked as a duplicate), you might in particular want to see my suggestion for an integer value in about:config to determine whether the Tab manager a.k.a. overflow menu a.k.a “List all tabs” button should only be visible in cases of overflow (as it is now), never be visible at all, or visible if n or more tabs are present (for a positive n).

I believe that other aspects of the new proposal should be configurable in about:config too. Primarily, the change that the manager shows all tabs in all windows, not just the current one. Also, the threshold of 6 tabs after which the “Show more tabs” submenu appears. The choices in the proposal might be about right for many users, but a) users with smaller screens might need a different threshold, and b) those with a larger number of windows which they use for well-organised groups of many tabs might prefer to only see the tabs in the current window, as they might not have a problem finding the right window but would then prefer to see all the tabs in that window without having to open a submenu.

Hi Sam, Can I start working on this?
