I'm personally a heavy tab user but have always wondered why there is almost no support for tab grouping or customization in the native tab bar in Firefox.
I think making it able to group like Google Chrome does for example or at least giving more access for extensions and add-ons would significantly improve the UI in that regard.
I'm no UX designer, but I had just enough Figma skills 😅 to build a mock-up of what Firefox Tab Groups could look like (and how they could work together with Container Tabs).
I hope the experts at Mozilla can review this, and hopefully, re-use the ideas put forward.
Curious to hear feedback of Mozilla employees and/or the community.
Chromes tab grouping is a simple one click solution. All of the FF extensions' tab-groping mechanisms are very clucky, and makes browsing and essay writnig into a Where's Walley experience. I wich I could use FF more but I have to switch browser every time I do projects that requires more than 10 tabs.
I hope they copy the Chromium solution or allow extensions to modify the tab bar. Because the situation is very frustrating.
It is such a useful feature, please consider developing it if possible. I moved over from Edge and this is one thing that I really miss.
This feature is something Firefox needs. I like the last mockup presented, to be honest.
Group topics in the same tab
My proposal is that in the fixed tabs section, these can be used to group several tabs on the same theme. For example Social Sites, e-commerce, etc.

Предлагаю рассмотреть добавление группировки вкладок.
То есть: есть у меня много однотипных вкладок открытых одновременно которые хотелось группировать к примеру в отдельных вкладках, как папки в windows или что-то вроде этого.
I propose to consider adding a grouping of tabs.
That is: I have a lot of the same type of tabs open at the same time that I wanted to group, for example, in separate tabs, like folders in windows or something like that.
I've been taking some time to read ideas around here and i was trying to get the last official update from mozilla about this...
And it seems that was @rayf - to which i thank to for replying (Honestly!!! And i say "Thank you" because i don't think mozilla is getting much attention to it's users lately)
However, i have to agree with @BelFox :
Seriously?! You are wasting time creating colorful themes and similar things and on features like this you say you need more time to study them in 2023?!
I want Firefox to do my work, not to play around. I don't care about fancy color themes and fancy propaganda. I want real features that help me and my company doing the work right.
It is amazing the quantity of new things mozilla has rolled out that are absolutely pointless while other features get forgotten.
This kind of attitudes really make me want to leave.
Mozilla's other employers should be doing more like @rayf - communicating with their users - and getting more real features out instead of wasting time with "toys" and things like colorful themes to support whatever they're supporting...
Pardon for my rant, once again!
GROUPS FOR TABS
This browser has been alive for too long to not have the ability to group tabs as a native feature. Please.
