I can't find any way to group windows. Yes, "windows".

I have about three dozen windows open (yes, there are a lot of tabs in them), and not just at home. And it’s hard to quickly find your bearings when you need to switch to another task (workspace). It would be nice to at least change the color of the windows, depending on the type of work. But in the API API I don’t see the ability to define a window property where you can specify a group identifier, which can be used to restore the color after re-opening FireFox.

If FireFox had a built-in or its own reliable extension for organizing thematic work, a deferred workspace (without losing the contents of windows). Arc browser - they realized that what browsers have been denying for a decade is already overdue, and they will be able to take over the market.

I tried several extensions for saving, restoring and organizing workspaces, and came to a clear conclusion: only the built-in FireFox solution for restoring windows after a crash/opening is the only truly reliable solution. There is no trust in extensions that are not supervised by a good team of developers and testers; there is a guarantee that data will be lost in the near future.

It is possible that in recent years some expansions have been completed. I'd be glad to know about it if you point it out. But here a question arises on a separate topic: improving the mechanism for rating and testing extensions, recommended extensions program.

There is an extension “Simple Tab Groups”, which is close to what is needed here, and is even marked as “Recommended”. But when you look at negative reviews, fresh ones, you realize that nothing has really changed, it’s inconvenient. But okay with that - it’s not secure, people still lose information.

The extension should not just be a “Recommended” extension, which generally does little for the community. I think it is very important to have real interaction between FireFox developers and extension developers and the opportunity to help the community.

I am sure that the developer has problems where he has to get out of his way to implement this or that feature in the application, and which could be expanded in FireFox, without much overhead, but the main thing is that it would work reliably.
