Cannot Disable "Show Tab Previews" in Tab Mix Plus

I have, of course, unchecked the box beside Show Tab Previews, but to no avail, so I had to go to Add-ons and disable Tab Preview.

Is this a TMP bug, or have I misunderstood the function of the Show Tab Previews feature?

stcroix103,
It sounds like you have 2 different Tab Add-ons. Is that correct?
EscuroAnjo showed you how to disable the previews, but I think you might be a little confused.

The Add-on called tab Preview is supposed to  show you previews of the Tab you are hovering over, normally not the Tab you are currently on.

The Tab Mix Plus add-on has a "Show Tab Previews" on it's Options->Display->Tab Bar page. But that places a Button with four dots on it over in the right hand side of the Tabs bar which when Selected (not moused over) pops up a Preview of All open tabs.

So you do have two different settings and displays for your Previews at the moment.

No other add-ons. Thanks  for engaging the question.

Can you comment on this: am I dealing with a TMP bug, or have I misunderstood the  function of the Show Tab Previews feature?

go to "about:config: then search for this "browser.allTabs.previews" make it 'False'  .. this will move the button with four dots away beside the new tab button in tab bar .

EscuroAnjo,
Nice work with that browser.alltabs.preview
I like it.

I must have overlooked a new setting somewhere.

Am I a dummy or what! Only the village idiot would confuse an add-on called Tab Preview with a TMP feature called Show Tab Previews. Sheeesh!

Thanks for finding the way through the tall grass.

A very sharp eye, mtz1of4, on the distinction between Add-on Tab Preview and TMP option Show Tab Previews. Thanks.

There was no bug or malfunction, just confusion about similar names.
