Vertical tabs - new tab button placement and functionality

The New Tab button with vertical tabs should be below the last tab, as in Edge, or fixed at the top of the tab sidebar, or configurable to choose the placement.

Also, double clicking an empty space in the vertical tab sidebar should open a new tab.


Came here to say exactly that.
Also, when in auto-minimized mode, have the “x” to close the tab somehow remain visible without having to hover and wait for the expanded version.

I came to the community today to make the identical recommendation.

Amazing that such a small thing - as an option in the settings - is “so hard” to implement.
You can do better, just be brave enough.
