Chrome has a really fantastic feature called "Tab Groups" - it's pretty self explanatory but it basically allows you to quickly group related sets of tabs.

This is an incredibly useful feature but it seems Firefox hasn't got anything like it.

I've tried a few of the third party add-ons such as Tree-Style-Tabs but they're all over-complicated, take up too much screen real estate or change the way tabs operate.

Is adding simple Tab Grouping functionality on the Firefox roadmap?

If not - has anyone found any good add-ons to replicate the Chrome functionality?

How do I get rid of yahoo as the search engine? I did an update a few weeks ago and now Yahoo is the search engine. Prior to this I was using Google. The difference if Google is like chatting with an intelligent college graduate and Yahoo is like dealing with a 4-year old.

I am ready to switch from Firefox to Chrome if this is cannot be resolved.

Firefox autoupdate and Firefox sync is disabled in computer. We are using Altiris patch management to update Firefox version. The source is msi file. Computer might has Firefox in difference install locations.

Computer has Firefox 85.0.2 64bit installed to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox However, Altiris patch management install Firefox 86.0 64bit to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

Now computer have 2 versions of Firefox 64bit.

parameter INSTALLDIR=path is not possible because computer might has Firefox in difference install locations.

Is it possible to update using msi replace current install directory instead of new install directory ?

PrintFriendly. Does the latest update to desktop Firefox still support PrintFriendly? I need it for making websites legible, but Firefox disabled it for Android (and won't let me go back to earlier versions), so I'm afraid to update the desktop version. Added security doesn't help if I can't read what's on a webpage. I'm running version 85.0.2, on Windows 7 Pro.

one of my google accounts, which I have been able to sign in through firefox for years, suddenly started giving me an error message after entering my email address on the google sign in page. I have another google account and I'm able to sign i using firefox just fine. The error message given is:

I'm using a windows 7 box and Firefox 85.0.2.

Hi, Once upon a time, when restarting a session, closed with some pages still open, Firefox was proposing the list of all pages that were open at the termination moment, asking to CHOOSE which pages we wanted in this new session. That feature was very very useful, allowing a fast closing, and a 'meditated' and comfortable restart.

Now, from a couple of years, it seems that the only choice is to have back ALL the pages again, or none... Is maybe this useful old setting hidden somewhere ? Thank you for your help... I find irritating loosing features in updates !

There is a website that I use for work a lot and I have it on my bookmarks for easy access. The url for this website is https://_________________.com/html5 When I start typing the first 3 letters after the "https://" part, the address bar auto fills but it only does so up to ".com" and omits the "/html5" part so the website does not load correctly if I hit enter. I then have to use more keystrokes to get the complete url which is super annoying since I have to use this website multiple times every day. Is there a way to force firefox to auto fill the whole url without omitting the last part ?

Thank you for your help.

Some sites are suggesting up to 10+ old passwords that don't seem to appear in the Logins & Passwords link- searches there with any segment of the site address don't bring up all (any) of the old pw so I can delete them. This is seriously problematic because I can't log into sites I need to do my job. Wasting a LOT of time on this. How can I find wherever these are cached so I can remove them?

Hi,

I love the Collections feature of Firefox for Android and it makes so much more sense then bookmarks. Why I can't sync it to Firefox for Desktop (Mac in my case)? Or why I can't use collections on Firefox for Desktop? Would be another feature which Chrome and Co. doesn't have but makes the life much more easier.
