- Filter for

(the change is immediately visible)
- 0 - Display a close button on the active tab only
- 1 - Display a close button on each tab (default)
- 2 - Don't display any close buttons
3 - Display a single close button at the end of the tab bar (Firefox 1.x behavior)
But really, what would be cool is if the active tab was a larger width, and had its own duplicate close button.
