With the ability to move tabs currently in nightly it would also be nice to be able to group tabs the same way chrome does.

I know you all have been experimenting with Tab Grouping by Search Query, but the option to Manually Group Tabs would be most welcome.

"Tab Group" is a must for modern browsers. Implement it asap.

I made a tab folders concept a while ago, maybe the illustrations from it might be useful: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/pxq7yc/my_opinion_on_how_to_improve_fenix_tab_grouping/

Though it was made before inactive tabs grouping, so if this feature will get implemented (and I hope it will) they would probably use the same UI elements for custom groups as used for inactive tabs group.

It definitely should be an option. Users must have possibility to disable grouping. I.e. is in impossible in Chrome.

Any plans for tab grouping and rearranging?

As for you know there are folder for tabs on chrome (which is a great feature) You guys made a similar tool for Search grouping which has the similar potential but less accessible since we can't just move tabs there in or our (and worse we can't even rearrange them).

Chromes tab grouping is the best thing that happened to mobile browsers in a while. It helps so much keeping the 100+ tabs organized. Would be great to see that in Firefox mobile too.

I am very excited for this. Its one of the things that has kept me from leaving chromium altogether! I hope this feature is similar enough that It does everything I need.

This is definitely a feature I live in chrome and need in FF. I have just recently made the move from chrome due to the impending manifest v3 change. Please implement tab groups, I miss it so.

I've seen already an "example" of Tab groups: the "Inactive Tabs" group!

In List mode (since it's what I use), Tabs that are deemed inactive are moved to a collapsible , which look a lot like Collections on the home page.

What's interesting is that instead of engineering a new solution for grouping tabs on mobile, Firefox could expand what it is currently doing for Inactive Tabs, by allowing the selection of multiple tabs with a button in "selection view" to "group" them (forming a group while also prompting for a name), just how it would have done automatically if they were inactive, except that it's user controlled!

Expanding this solution also means:

  • Allow selection of Tabs within the group to "ungroup" them (again with a button in selection view)
  • Allow group-wide actions, not just closing Tabs but also bookmarking them and even sharing them.
  • Allow renaming Groups, and possibly even reordering them.

I can't wait to see Tab groups in Mobile, especially since it can easily be made possible! And then, onwards to Desktop Tab groups!

Hope it actually gets implemented, i was using Brave as a second browser to Opera and the tab grouping on it was *chef's kiss* but it stopped working for some reason after i updated the app on the 1st of October, the whole tab system actually glitched, it doesn't show visual for the tabs at all now is just the tab page text, don't know it's a issue on my phone or their version, but if it get fixed i will come back to it or keep using Firefox.
