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 Group

Do you consider adding tab grouping function?

I've always been a Firefox user, but you are making me my life harder, chrome just makes it work, can't we just implement a good tab grouping? Make that tab bar more dynamic.

I was a Chrome user for a long time. Loved their method of grouping tabs. Migrated to Edge as it's what we use for work. Then switched to FF in my personal life because Edge was getting bloated and slow. Now I'm wrestling with Simple Tab Groups (not simpler than Chrome!). Think I'm going to go back to Chrome again. Too bad, I really wanted to like FF.

This should be brought in asap as a priority. Its 2022, there's no excuse not to. I, and I suppose millions others, will never be able to go through our gazillion open tabs across multiple devices this way. Grouping allows consuming tabs of a particular subject in one burst - the way it is currently, I'm exhausted just finding all tabs which I want to take in at one go.

Just decided to switch back to Chrome. All this talk of tab grouping and the fact that it's still not implemented made me forget why I've stuck with Firefox all this time. Later!

Group tabs like those in chrome/edge/vivaldi is a requirement to win over some of my friends from competing browsers so this is definitely more important than the Firefox devs think it is.

Groups to Clarify Tabs (visual example included)

Like many users, I will always have several tabs opened, and I would like to be able to group them together. I know that we have pins which can help, but let me give you an example. If I have four tabs that are researching x and two tabs for researching y, I want to select the first four tabs, right click and choose Group. When I type in X, it would create brackets above all four tabs with X (what I typed) above.

┌               x               ┐
 Tab1 tab2 tab3 tab4

I think the best implementation is probably the one found in Vivaldi. Anyway, it is a very useful feature and one that obliges me to use Vivaldi instead of Firefox when I am doing research involving many tabs.

Add tab to group

Is it possible to implement the new feature chrome has into firefox where you can add tabs to group and color code them making it easier to access tabs because I have a lot of tabs open each day and some time its hard to go back and forth with the arrow keys just to switch from one tab to the next. For example I could have a tab call Plumbing fittings with multiple tabs in it with the different types of plumbing fittings.

Agreed, the native tab grouping in Edge is actually very nice! 👍

Who would've thought just a couple of years ago that we would be chasing features from a Microsoft-branded browser...? 😂
