Whether for good or bad, I'm a habitual multi-window/millions-of-tabs kind of a user and it gets difficult to manage and navigate through all of my minimized windows to find what I'm looking for at any given time. Generally speaking, I group tabs together according to projects or topics but I can't always figure out which window is which.

If you could add a feature where you could right-click on a window icon and give it a "nickname", then I could label a window as "Music" or "Video references" or whatever it may be and it would save me so much time opening and closing windows.

Making moves

There are already some (imperfect) alternatives which may help:

FF's feature of typing "%[SPACE][search term]" in the address bar will find tabs containing the search term. E.g. "% mini" finds my tabs related to classic mini's. Mostly. A bit klunky but certainly quicker than manually popping-up 20-odd windows across three screens.

Kubuntu's (plasma's) feature of "Set Window Shortcut" allows any window (not just a FF one) to be popped-up using a user-selected key-combo. E.g. CTRL-SHIFT-M. But user-selected associations are lost at reboot (or even at a FF restart).

The FF "%[SPACE]..." feature could - perhaps - be extended so that any tab could be given a user-selected identity (e.g. "M") so that typing (say) "%%M" would find and raise that tab's window. A logical extension of such a feature would be that - at the moment when any tab is *given* its identity ("M" etc) - the tab is automatically moved to the window which contains all the other tabs with the same identity. (Or a new window if no other same-identity tabs yet exist.)
