Does the latest version of Firefox support "Tab Groups", "Tabs on Bottom" & "Status 4-Evar" ?

Posted

I am still using Firefox version 56.02 64bit, in order to have the use of these Add-ons. Thanks for you help, much appreciated.

I am not familiar with "Tab Groups."

Extensions cannot move toolbars to different locations or create news ones. For "Tabs on Bottom" you will need to use custom style rules in a userChrome.css file. See: https://www.userchrome.org/what-is-userchrome-css.html#movetabbar

What does "Status-4-Evar" do?

Thank you for your reply.

1. Tab Groups was once included in Firefox, then it was taken out of the downloaded program, and a couple of similar features were available as add-ons. If you keep many tabs open it allows you to group them (e.g. a 'Financial' group, a 'Email & Services' group, or a group for your hobby interests etc.) thereby not having many, many tabs open in the same ribbon at once & having to scroll through them to find what you want.

2. I will look at your link for moving the Tabs to the bottom, which I suspect is what the author has probably used in his 'Add-On".

3. The 'Status 4 Evar' Add-on shows a customisable status bar progressing along the Address bar as a web-page is loading.

The above three Add-ons are all 'Legacy' add-ons which I can still use in version 56, however, after version 57 they didn't work, so I just wondered if anyone knew if they had been updated now, without me having to upgrade & then down grade again if they couldn't be installed in the current version.

For #1, there are some new extensions related to tab groups, but I don't know how they compare with the one you have used before.

For #3, as far as I know, extensions in Firefox 57+ cannot manipulate the background color of the address bar in that manner (they could change it from one color to another, but not in increments).

Instead of tab groups you can consider to use containers.
