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.

"Tab Grouping, Vertical Tabs, and our handy Sidebar"

No.. if I wanted vertical tabs and sidebars, there are plet=nty of existing add-ons already.
FF has already been demoted to a second class citizen on my machines because of lack of Horizontal tab management.. you know, like we used to have but for some reason it was deprecated?
I get the feeling FF is going to eventually just have to be removed due to lack of use on my machines.  Vertical tabs, sidebars, Yuck! Valuable screen real estate wasted..

Connect the tabs in a category!

In a category , I think that the tabs should be together with a single light, not lots of short ones. Another idea is to make then compressible, like in Microsoft Edge. I have got a picture of whit i think it should look like.

Yes, I also feel that. I tried to use simple tab group but unfortunately I faced some problems like:

It does not always load the groups when I open the browser first time. I need to turn off and on again the extension. But in chrome and also in Microsoft edge they are offering really good and user friendly tab grouping. I think It will add an extra helping hand while we need to use a lot tabs for our project/works.
