Question Seamonkey and tab close buttons

Hi! I want to be able to close tabs in Seamonkey like in Firefox - either close buttons on tabs or middleclick on tab. Found this extension here but it doesn't work with latest Seamonkey and middleclick does something else to page instead of closing. Is there any way to put little close buttons on each tab?

In Seamonkey, type about:config in the address bar. Type middle in the filter bar to narrow down the selection, then change middlemouse.contentLoadURL to false. That allows middle click (mouse wheel click) to close tabs.

For the close buttons on each tab This addon may or may not work with your version of Seamonkey though.
There is an about:config option (browser.tabs.closeButtons) but this has no effect in Seamonkey, only Firefox.

middlemouse.contentLoadURL to false
did the thing. Seatabx turn out to be old for new Seamonkey.
