Due to a failure in another machine, I have had to use an older laptop I had not used for over a year. It had an older version of FF with TabMixPlus and other addons which I had come to rely on an treasure. Now, perhaps because I clicked on the wrong dektop icon, all that has gone. All sessions, all OneTab entries, and of course multi-row tabs, plus all the other TMP features such as a "Protect Tab" (NOT "pin tab") which now seems to be history. The continued refusal of Firefox to implement multi-row tabs is completely baffling. Perhaps they are all adherents of some religion that has a strong view on such decadence - it is almost the only possible explanation. There seems to be a tendency to vastly reduce the number of options present to a user, as if the attitude was a patronising "we know what's best for you - don't worry, all will be ok". Yes, yes, yes, I know that multi-row tabs can be had, for a price, and that price is an afternoon tweaking numerous machines in weird places and wondering is MrOtherGuy's work really is the best (or the worst - who knows?) implementation. No chance of a nice extension or feature to do all this, of course.

The whole thing is very dismaying. Life with FF used to be fun - it is now an endless hassle. Unless, of course, you forsake all and follow their way of doing things and confess that you were wrong all along, and that no sane person would ever want multi-row tabs.

1) DOWNLOADED NEW TAP GROUPS ADD ON 2) when I create new group it allows me to create new group and cannot name it for referrance. 3) Right clicking on TAB on title bar does NOT allow me to MOVE tab to GROUP--no option. 4) Downloaded most recent version of FIREFOX

I want to create new group, name it, then drag drop the over loaded TOP TAB bar allowing me to organize the tabs according to subject

Managing 1100 tabs via savable tab groups

I have, I am embarrassed to say, about 1,100 tabs open. A surprisingly high proportion of them are actually relevant to current projects or ongoing interests. As a result, when I set out to close a lot of them, I constantly run into things I need to do, and often end up with more open than I started with. Also as a result, my tabs are decreasingly useful to me, because of all the haystacks I have piled on whatever needle I currently want.

What I would like to do is this: 1. Group. Take my thousand tabs apart into project-related groups of a more sensible size. 2. Save. Name and save each group. 3. Open clean. Turn off the setting that reopens all tabs that were open when you closed Firefox, so that all I see when I open Firefox are my homepage and pinned tabs. 4. Open group. Be able to open only one or more saved tab groups. Ideally I'd like to be able to open a group into either the current or a new window. If I had to choose, I would much prefer to open each group to its own window.

Over the two decades or so that I have been using Firefox, I have set out to do this multiple times, both with Firefox itself and with various add-ons. I have never reached the point that I could do all four of the things above, and without all four, I don't have what I need to decompose my huge mass of tabs into meaningful components. I'm not saying there has not been a way, only that I have not found it or figured it out.

I suspect there is a way to do this native to Firefox. Is there? If so, could you point me toward instructions on how to do so? If not, is there an add-on that would let me do this? Again, I am looking for something that lets me do all four: group, save, open to a clean page, and open single tab groups in a new window. I welcome pointers to add-ons that will do this, but only from people who have actually used that add-on and know it can do everything I am asking. I have tried numerous add-ons that looked to me like they would work, but I have never been able to execute all four pieces. And I am not going to do step 3 until I have the other three down solid, as that would throw away all my current tabs. Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you. Warmest regards, Beanxx

For ever each time I selected typed text in the search bar and clicked on a search engine the results would open in a new tab. No it does not and the only thing I did was to install Chrome because a web site was not displaying properly. The site is my.Mintmobile.com login in and select referral tab and a blank space appears where there should be information on inputting a email address and a link to send. Works in chrome but not in Firefox current 81. 64 bit.

favicons (icons) in tabs displayed for a light firefox theme. I have a firefox black theme right now. On a black background of the firefox theme, you can not see black icons. I tried to open the same tabs in chrome with a dark theme, there is a white icon, as it should be for the same site that I opened in firefox (there was a black icon in firefox). How can I fix it?
