FireFox help!

Is there a plug-in that would allow me to essentially lock a tab?

I want it to stop me closing the tab or more to a different page or reload the page.

in short, i always close the tab while listening to the podcast using the flash player and I would like to make my browser idiot proof!

Works Great!

I turned off most of the options and just left the 'protect' and 'lock' features enabled. No more accidentally clicking off the BOL page when listening to the 'cast!

Another useful feature

I use the middle click to close tabs, but if I middle click in the tab bar area it reopens the last closed tab (ctrl F12 too). This is one of my favorite extensions
