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.

This is a huge organizational feature and probably the #1 feature I would want/need to be able to confidently switch from chrome.

Yet another second to this—the switch from chrome to ff was a bit shocking when mobile groups weren't a thing yet. Please implement soon—I would like to close chrome, but there's some things it just does better in terms of user experience!

It's almost 2024 and no tabs group. This makes me constantly think about switching from Firefox. Please implement

Seriously, why would this ubiquitous feature not exist by default in (almost) 2024!?

Another person making an account to say this.

We need the grouping. If it's the UI that's the issue, then I just beg you do the easy route and do an accordion. Collections are useful for some things, like saving a point to restart from. They're not useful for me, someone who has about 150 tabs, many of which are stories I'd LOVE to group together.

 

If nothing else, a workflow of

User realizes they want to connect 20 tabs -> they select all tabs, and move to new collection -> new collection appears looking much like a tab in the list, maybe the most recently opened of those tabs has a preview in that folder, the title is the collection name -> the tabs that were selected close. -> the user sees their tab list, with the collection they just made in the list as one entity -> if they click the collection, it opens the collection's tabs, long press for a menu revealing normal collection options, clicking a tab not in the collection collapses them back into one group

 

I don't love this suggestion because it would refresh the content of the tabs, but I could handle that. I can't handle "do I want to create a duplicate tab possibly, or do I want to scroll through more than 100 tabs of stories, research, news sites, and social media just to try to find the three recipes I'm cooking tonight "

Agreed with the collective sentiment. I really want to switch from Chrome Android to Firefox but I desperately need visually grouped tabs, I simply have too many to manage daily.

I also agree with the collective sentiment. Tab grouping is an essential browser function now. Information is generated and consumed so quickly such that we need more efficient and effective ways to corral ideas as they are being found.

I've been using Firefox as my desktop browser for many years. Currently, I am 100% Firefox across all my devices, both desktop and mobile, because I don't support a browser mono-culture. However, lack of tab grouping on mobile is severely hampering my experience, such that I am considering switching back to Safari for my mobile devices.

Please, escalate this idea status!

please I want to be able to organize my tabs and open the same website but different tabs without adding fluff to my tabs page!

I really want to make the total jump from Chrome to Firefox, but the mobile tab grouping on Chrome is just too useful for me and the Collections feature of Firefox isn't a suitable substitute for me, as it lacks being able to visually see all the tabs groups. Looking forward to this feature!

Just wanted to add to the conversation here and advocate for this feature along with everyone else.

I can skirt around the lack of this feature on desktop with an extension like Simple Tab Groups, but the same can't be done on mobile.

I think this is one of the only features really holding FF back.

+1 to Simple Tab Groups on desktop.

It provides such good tab management, that I'm actually a little scared of the chance that Mozilla implements a tab grouping feature on desktop and it doesn't turn out as good haha

Here's hoping for good news in 2024! Happy new year, all.

Personally I would prefer modal tab groups like Panorama or Simple Tab Groups, so I don't see groups and tabs in the same view.

Firefox MobileにChromeのようなタブグループ機能を追加してほしいです。具体的にはリンクを長押しした際に、新しいタブをグループで開くオプションの追加、タブメニューからタブを選択もしくはタブをタブにドラッグすることによるグループ化機能を追加してほしいです。また、画像のようにグループタブを開いている際に画面の下部にタブバーを表示するオプションもほしいです。

I would like Firefox Mobile to add a tab group feature like Chrome. Specifically, I would like to see an option to open a new tab in a group when long-pressing a link, and a grouping function by selecting a tab from the tab menu or dragging a tab to a tab. I would also like an option to display a tab bar at the bottom of the screen when a group tab is open, as shown in the image.
