In Firefox, hovering over a tab gives only the tab title. It would be nice to see more detail, eg the URL/domain name (like Chrome and Edge do):


But what would be even better is a tab preview! Vivaldi does both URL and preview:

Browser TAB preview

  • This is a handy feature from the chrome browser.

  • In chrome, when you move the mouse over a TAB that isn't in the foreground, it displays a small preview window of the TAB a few seconds later to help you view the TAB, rather than just showing the title and not being able to tell what the TAB is

I've been using Firefox from the beginning of Firefox - great product !

I have the latest version for Mint 22 . I also just did a refresh and lost my tool bars .

My request is to return the ability switch between loaded apps via a click on any app's icon in the panel

here it hoping for tab previews!

Yeah, IMHO this should be released in tandem with the tab grouping suggestion found here:

Truly the only two things I miss from Chrome: tab peeks & tab groups.

And If Edge is doing something better than FF, haha, I think it's time to starting supporting it 😉

Cheers 🥂

Familiar face

You know what this would be a very good feature to have well I made a thread about some things to so yeah I wonder if Mozilla is testing our ideas in an experiential version of the Firefox Web Browser? 

@JonJ Will these features get into Firefox cause they would be good to have.

Making moves

See contents of tab that mouse is hovering over

I think that it will be useful if you could preview the contents of a tab in Firefox by moving your mouse over it

As @mbruk shared, we are currently working on this feature. Feel free to keep the conversation going and stay tuned for more updates 🙌

Strollin' around

Absence of this feature makes it very difficult to alleviate concerns of people that approach me for recommendation of a browser only to find out that there's no scoping of permissions of extensions in Firefox to speak of.

I know that this has been tied into the Manifest V3 implementation, but that seems ages away whilst this very feature has been available in other browsers for years now.

Help us help others to move away from *other browsers* by giving them less reasons to worry about, please!
