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.

This is a must! Will be switching from Chrome the second we get proper tab groups.

We NEED this feature! I'm using firefox for 10 years and i really MISS customization features firefox was known for. Im working on my computer for 8 hours all-day and i NEED feature to create GROUPED TABS just like bookmark folders but on tabs. Something like this: I click a "grouped tab" and a list of tabs inside pops up, just like when clicking url bar, make this satisfying experience for your users! Autogrouping same pages like on window's taskbar would also look NICE and ahead of other browsers! ❤️

I use to be an exclusive firefox user, but after stumbling across Chrome's tab groups a few months ago my browsing is split between the two browsers.

I opinion that all of these people <talking/saying/commenting> that Firefox should-have Tab-Groups, proves that Mozilla (or whoever made that decision) removing Tab-Groups (or "Panorama" as they also called-it) from Firefox was one of the most ASSININE decisions EVER.

Another decision that was pretty Asinine (especially[,] now that we see Google calling-the-shots in almost EVERYWHERE), was getting-rid of Firefox's own created "XUL" and <i don't remember what the name of the other one was but it-also started with an "X"> technologies, and replacing them with Google's own "WebExtensions" technology, which made it dependant on Google. And now that Google implemented "V3" or <i don't recall what the correct-name of it is; but-hopefully people knew what i was talking-about>  Firefox was even-MORE-forced to adapt to the change and/or to go with the change (even-though and/or even-if they didn't want to).

 

 

For more-information on how Firefox made Tab-Groups back in their "4.0"-version of the web-browser, I suggest everyone read "OG"'s-post at the "page 1" of this Mozilla-Firefox feedback page / feedback "thread" / dunno what-else to call it.

I personally love the way you can have it in Microsoft Edge now - native Vertical tabs with tab groups. It's very handy that way (https://imgur.com/a/SO9qwTa)

Safari has a good take on tab groups in my opinion as well. It's simply a tab located in the sidebar which is a good idea I think. It seems to be comparable to the Edge solution which I don't like too much because of the vertical arrangement of tabs. At the end of the day I think I'd be fine either way.

The following video demonstrates (in under a minute) how tab groups are used in Safari on macOS devices: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTyoZZGz9HE
