Default Pin/Unpin tab(s)

Recently I found a way of retrieving messages when I'd accidentally or carelessly closed a tab when I didn't mean to. This happens more often when I've got a lot of tabs open and the title showing is a lot smaller, so that when I click to re-open it, I click the X and close it instead! It finally dawned on me that if I pinned the tab, it would stay there and not close, particularly since pinned tabs move to the far left of the tab bar, become small in appearance and aren't so easily accessible by mistake.

The other thing I can do is to use Typio as previously mentioned:

Recover accidentally lost messages - Web User Forums

Either is much better than that "**** it!" moment!

I don't see the 'Lock Tab' option Dude ~ perhaps it exists only in older versions of browsers and has been replaced by 'Pin Tab' in recent versions?

You've removed the thread header again! Very naughty ~ you must stop doing this or you'll be in trouble with the mods (again)!
