The two paragraphs we have on tabbed browsing are not enough. Have a look at this: http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/tabbed-browsing.html Maybe Blake can provide something from his guidebook as well?
Created attachment 159214 [details] a starting point a starting point. btw, a tabbed browser pref (in Advanced Options) is not documented in Help.
The undocumented pref is being documented in another Help bug to document the fix for single-window mode, which is currently in review. I don't remember the bug#, but there aren't that many Help bugs.

Comment on attachment 159214 [details] a starting point Thanks for writing this, Daniel! I'd say it's a pretty good starting point. > Tabbed Browsing lets you open tabs, each displaying a Web page, within a single > Firefox window. This frees up space on your desktop. We're lowercasing "web page" and "web site" everywhere in Help. > Creating and Loading Tabs > > To open a new tab, press Ctrl+T, or open the File menu and choose New Tab. ...or double-click in the Tab Bar. ...or click the Add Tab button, available from the <link>Customize Toolbar dialog. > Closing Tabs > > To close the current tab, you can press Ctrl+W, click the Close Tab button [x], > middle-click the tab, or open the File menu and choose Clost Tab. s/Clost/Close/ > More shortcuts s/More/Keyboard/ > While it's easy to select tabs with a mouse, you can also cycle through tabs > using the keyboard: use Ctrl+PgUp (or Ctrl+Tab) and Ctrl+PgDn (or Ctrl+Shift+Tab). > You can also select the first tab by pressing Ctrl+1, and so on up to the 9th tab > with Ctrl+9. If you have a middle mouse button, click it on a tab to close the tab. Drop the last sentence, you've explained that already. > Bookmarks and Tabbed Browsing > > To bookmark a set of tabs: > 1. Press Ctrl+D, or open the Bookmarks menu and choose Bookmark This Page. > 2. Check the 'Bookmark all tabs in a folder' checkbox to store all the tabs > in the current window into a Bookmark Folder. > > To open bookmarks in tabs, ...middle-click a bookmark folder or right-click it... > and choose Open in Tabs. > Home Page as Tabs > > Instead of just one web page as your homepage, you can make your home page > several pages. Select your favorite Web sites and open them in a set of tabbed > windows. Open the Tools menu and choose Options. Select 'General'. Under 'Home Page', > press the 'Use Current Pages' button. Now when you hit the Home button on the > Navigation toolbar, your favorite web sites will load with just one click. I don't like "hit". And I hope we don't need to explain where the Home button is. How about this: Now you can load your favorite web sites with just one click on the Home button. >Customizing Tabbed Browser > > To customize Tabbed Brower, open the Tools menu and choose Options. > Choose Advanced. Options for Tabbed Browser can be found under Browsing. That will be changed to "Tabbed Browsing" by bug 172962. Jeff, do you have further comments?
Created attachment 161920 [details] [diff] [review] Patch based on starting point Patch is based on starting point and addresses nits brought up by Steffen (and also nits I encountered as I converted it to XHTML). The patch adds refs into ToC and index as well. Patch also references prefs.xhtml#tabbed_browsing, which doesn't exist. This is to make sure we finish up bug 258076, which is a *huge* absence from our prefs documentation right now.

All fixed, branch and trunk. Note that this document /almost/ serves as more of a placeholder than anything else right now. It needs some screenshots and a bit more substance before I'd consider it anything near perfect, but there's no time, so we do what we can.
