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 literally the only thing that keeps me from switching to Firefox. Please add tab groups!

I would love to see tab grouping back in Firefox. It's been a game changer for me in Vivaldi and Brave. It allows me to clean up my tab bar and keep pages where I can find them quickly.

It seems like a lost cause at this point, but this feature would be INCREDIBLY useful for me. When I used Chrome, I liked that the groups were in the tab bar because it saved space, while also keeping them visible. But with Simple Tab Groups or any of the other extensions that show tab groups in a dropdown, I know I would immediately forget the groups existed.

I currently have 134 open tabs, across 7 windows, and it's very hard to navigate without being able to organize them at all. (Also, it's only as low as 134 because I had to start fresh after the hard drive on my old computer failed and I lost all data last December. If that hadn't happened, I'd most likely be at 500+ tabs across 10+ windows, as I usually am.)

Please don't abandon this idea. I switched to Firefox because it was privacy-focused, open-source, and everyone told me it was just as good as Chrome. I've found that to be true in most cases, but this is a glaring exception.

some people need to understand that you can know about a feature, and it is not enough because it doesnt solve your problem. Google chrome tabs are intuitive. Its like having a desk, and putting many books one next to the other. Whenever you want, you can open or close multiple books. All you see when its colapsed, is the front page, and it takes much less space. Simple tab groups is like stacking desks on top of each other and i really havent seen anyone doing that in real life... Furthermore, its so simple to open a new tab in the group, and move it from group to group. You dont have to click through menus as if we are in the 2000's.

Is there any news, any information about the progress?

I don't think it is a well-developed example in this discussion, misguiding. Chrome's grouping-tabs is messy in my experience, while opened that browser back to the latest pages left opened, the groups displayed broken and I mostly had to re-group the tabs, and since then, I don't remember when was the last time I used it.

Although it needs to turn to simpler, 'Simple Tab Groups'* addon does quite a lot of the job for Firefox. Even you can archive the groups to use them anytime later.

Really would like to have that to. The addons out there are all to feature-rish. Chrome and Edge do that pretty well.

I had to switch to edge because the amount of tabs I was using was too much to one firefox windows,  so I just use edge for that case. I will wait till firefox adds it because is my favorite browser 🙂
