Tab and focus order improvements -- any progress?

Hi.

This is my first post to the Multizilla list. My Multizilla is version 
1.8.3.4e in SeaMonkey 1.1.1.5 (Windows). I am also a longtime Firefox user.

I'd like to know if there has been any progress in enabling the other 
two options in Tab Bar Behavior>Tab and Focus Order. It seems to me that 
the default -- or maybe the 'custom default' (now there's an oxymoron!) 
focus behavior of FF and SeaMonkey (sans MZ) is paradoxically set aside 
when one installs this add-on. While I concede that there are other 
popular functions of MZ that from the pov of other users and 
contributors deserve attention, to my way of thinking, the longer the 
"Focus on last used tab" (or however it's phrased in Prefs) stays greyed 
out, the more likely it is that new users -- such as myself -- will be 
inclined to find other things about MZ that annoy them and at some point 
figure continuing to use it isn't worth all the bother. None of us want 
that, I'm sure.

So if anyone has info on the progress of these preferences being 
enabled, please share same with the list asap.

Have a good one.

BZT

Hi,

I don't speak for anyone, I'm just a user like you, and of course
anyone is free to contribute to this project at any time... but for
now there is apparently no progress. Last nightly build is from
October of last year (and yes, this build also lacks the option you
desire). In fact your message is the first on this list in over two
months.
