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 migrated from Chrome for the Sidebery / TST extension in Firefox. The lack of vertical tabs in Chrome was horrible no matter how good your grouping... at one point I had so many groups that I still couldn't read my tab names without going to the tooltip.

Sidebery extension also far exceeds the capabilities of vertical tabbing in Vivaldi and Edge. At least for the next couple of years.

Please for the love of God don't do an upgrade that breaks these extensions.

I for one am against any changes that would impact functionality of existing extensions which already offer the feature that people are looking for! Learn to use your extensions people.

I really struggle with tab organization now that I've switched to Firefox, because when I used Chrome I was able to easily group tabs into folders that I could easily expand/hide with a click. I miss the days when I could leave all of my organized tabs open in one easy-to-find spot! If tab grouping (in a manner as similar to Chrome's as possible) could be integrated into Firefox that would sincerely be life-changing!

Thanks!

Hello #Firefoxdev 

If you are serious about retaining existing users & adding more loyal users to your user base, please introduce Group tabs including the option of arranging them, coloring them etc... I am a heavy tab user myself & it feels so lost while using Firefox.

Also, your bookmarks needs a whole new redesign, finding which bookmark belongs to which folder is a pain. Please streamline bookmark user management providing us an option to pull the bookmarks window further down to modify it.

@Vinci480 @thenothingtech @sara_zephyr @AhmedX @Elio Hi all! How are you guys? It would be interesting in addition to grouping tabs, grouping favorites - What do you guys think of this idea? Would it be possible to request in addition to grouped tabs, grouped bookmarks?

This is a must have feature now for Firefox, this is the one feature thats stopping me using Firefox only. I still use Brave and Edge when I know I will use opening tons of tabs.

@paulocarlosjoseI mean I guess for Bookmarks the folders are mainly there for it but I can also see me using a group feature like I mentioned in my bookmarks.

I'm serching so long for working ad-ons, but nothing worked for me.
Please do this! The simple version like Chome is good enough!

I'm working with 3 windows and 18-30 tabs on each! Do tab-groubs and stop this mess!😩

@Vinci480Hi! I would like to know your opinion on this idea, I could be wrong or right, I don't know: Would it be possible to rename the tabs if the tabs are grouped? I thought of this idea, after reading this interesting feature: https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/ideas/ability-to-rename-tabs/idi-p/5438
