How do I get the Tab Group names to appear above the Tabs?

At one point the names of all my Tab Groups appeared above the Tabs. That is, on every page there's a horizontal list of open Tabs. Above that there used to be a similar looking horizontal list of all Tab Groups. Now that horizontal list of Tab Groups is gone. This was useful for rearranging and re-categorizing Tabs into different Groups because I could see the whole page for any given Tab, and could move the Tab to a different Tab Group simply by clicking on the Tab and dragging to to any Group in the Tab Groups section above the Tabs section. This was usually easier than rearranging Tabs on the Tab Groups page (accessed by clicking the "Group your tabs" icon at the upper right of the display). I don't know how this feature got there or why it went away, but I liked it. How can I get this back?

I agree. This is a hugely awesome feature available through an add-on that is no longer supported. This would make tab groups truly useful for me.

Re: How do I get the Tab Group names to appear above the Tabs?

Tab groups were the primary reason I used Firefox (since the beginning). Now that they are gone, so am I !!!!! -- However ... good news! ... they are not gone, just a tiny bit more difficult to manage. You right click on the tab and select Move To Group. You then create new tab groups within the Tab Group interface. Once you've done that, the familiar Tab Group boxes icon appears in the upper right hand corner of each Group in full display.

Having done it a few times, I can't even remember now what the original method was precisely. But all the functions are still there -- that's the important thing! And I'm still here on Firefox (at least until the next bone-headed crisis....)

I tried what I thought you suggested but it didn't work. I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing. I've been getting away from Tab Groups, using Bookmarks instead, because 1) Tab Groups can be a bit flaky and unreliable, and 2) a Geek Squad agent, in "tuning up my system" wiped out all my tab groups and my history. So Tag Groups are volatile where Bookmarks aren't. I still use them, and would like the discussed feature back, but I don't rely on them.
