When I'm browsing reddit, researching items on stack overflow, or really many situations, I'll end up with a lot of tabs of different content for the same site. Often I'll reorder them, move the stuff I want to keep to the some position on the left and clearing the right. However, I've noticed most of the time I just want to clear the tabs from a specific site. It would be nice to have a submenu to close only the tabs relating to the specific domain I clicked on.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
Potentially similar idea here: Suggestion: Add "Close Duplicate Open Tabs" option to browser tab right click option
(if I'm understanding correctly)
Similar, but not quite. I'm thinking more along the lines of a research binge, but I want to close the tabs belonging to a specific domain, eg right click one tab from stackoverflow.com and select "close others from stackoverflow.com". Those closed tabs are not necessarily duplicates, could be several different posts, just from the same origin.
The current way I do this is manually sorting a lot of tabs to get them into the "left" or "right" order and then closing all the stuff I don't want to the left or right. Most of the time this is moving all the "not stackoverflow" tabs to the left of the first "stackoverflow" tab and closing tabs to the right.
This is great. Thanks for the additional details - always very helpful!
