How that surprising behavior of tabs can be turned off? :)

New version released, which AFAIK fixes all causes of these problems. Thank you for the report!

In the next version due out in a few days, the problems of tabs sliding around for no good reason should be entirely or mostly fixed. 


In the current version they are only supposed to slide around to keep the tree in the same tab-order as the tab-bar. But the current version has some bugs that cause the tabs to slide around when they should not / when you did not ask them to. Those bugs should hopefully be all fixed in the next version.

I found, that tabs still sliding sometimes, however I cant say how it can be reproduced for now.


As I understand they must sliding in some cases and its not a bug?

Yes, in some cases they must slide in order to keep the tabs in the same order in the tabbar (horizontally) as they appear in the page tree (vertically). This is done because it makes ctrl+tab and closing tabs work more intuitively, and also helps Sidewise work properly together with other extensions such as session manager extensions.


The easiest way to intentionally cause the sliding behavior is by dragging a page row in the tree to a new location in the tree -- the tab will slide on the tabbar to match that movement.


In general, ctrl+tabbing through your tabs should also advance the row-highlight through the tree in sequential, top-to-bottom order. If the row-highlight jumps around in the tree when doing this, then Sidewise isn't working right. Please let me know if you see this happen.


Do you find the sliding that still happens annoying? I ask because I am considering making this "keep in same order" functionality optional in the future.

Yes.

My vote up for this!

I think this feature is very important for comfortable browsing. Instead of sliding maybe it worth to think about initial order options for new tabs.
