Smile Seamonkey's tab has no "x" to close


Seamonkey's tab has no "x" to close,
In firefox, every tab has a "x" on the far right for you to close the tab, but this does not exist in Seamonkey, you got to right-click and choose close.

I search the Option/Preference but find nothing to enable the "x",
any idea?

Hi TigerLinux, There should be a very small "x" to the far right of the tabs toolbar that will close the current tab.

Good luck. ;-)

I'm not sure, probably a good question for the development team.

Good luck. ;-)

most browsers have the "x" on each tab.

The individual close button for each tab is a very recent invention from only several years ago. The right question to do, if you want to make any question at all, is why seamonkey is not following the trend.
