How can I view two windows side by side?

Posted

I have two windows open in two different tabs, but I want to view them side by side on the screen. Can I do this in Firefox? How?

Chosen solution

Adjust the window size, not the tab size. Open 2 windows, not 2 tabs.

The add-ons might be better for you. You can always uninstall them if it is not what you want.

You could open a second Firefox window, adjust the sizes of the two windows and align them side by side. (Firefox button > New Tab > New Window OR CTRL+N OR File > New Tab > New Window if using the Menu Bar)

You could install one of the Add-ons to view multiple tabs at the same time:
