There is a founction in Chrome called 'Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed' . It creates a process in background and occupies less RAM after closing all tabs, which can speed up opening new window. Is it possible to achieve this in Firefox?

Firefox should provide a toggle to minimize them to tray since all the existing browsers provide similar options as shown below.

My primary usecase is:

-  I like to keep as little visual clutter as possible, and to use as few resources as possible because my laptop is aging

- When I compulsively close Firefox, and need it a couple of minutes later, I am inconvenienced by:

  - Bitwarden requiring re-opening with master password

  - Tabs seem to forget session cookies (perhaps quite logical)

 

It would be great to be able to simply unload all tabs from RAM and minimize to system tray

I would love for this to be a feature as well. Bitwarden also being one of my primary reasons for keeping Firefox running without clutter.

Thumbs up. I want to keep firefox process running even if I click close. Its not unheard of. Think of it as a daemon. Primarily for me so onepass doesnt lock.

thumbs up. I would love to have FF as a deamon - primarily so addons that lock when FF closes stay open in this login.

@insoul8 Bitwarden is the main reason I want firefox running in the background as well.

How long do we need to wait for this really simple feature. This is a must have today if they really want to have more users in the world

In some way or another this feature has been requested and talked about since 2015 at least. I see forum posts requesting it from that far back. Is this something that just isn't going to ever be implemented? It seems like a pretty easy feature to add. Is there a reason devs would not want to do this?
