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.

Making moves

@OGI don't know if I can explain this in English, but I would prefer native tree-style vertical tabs, and horizontal ones should be formed as follows:

Vertical:

 

Tab1
- Tab2
  - Tab3
Tab4
- Tab5

 

Horizontal:

 

[Tab1 Tab2 Tab3][Tab4 Tab5]

 

 Where "[...]" is a group. IMHO, tree-style tabs are better than groups.

Yes. Lack of tab grouping in 2024 is too silly. All other browsers provide this option (do not know about Safari). Please  include native tab grouping in one of the updates asap. Thanks

Native Tab Grouping

There are so many ideas submitted already asking for native tab group feature in Firefox. For some reason, Firefox is ignoring it. Why? I do not want to use a third-party extension to do a simple thing like this. I cannot trust a lot of third-party extensions. Privacy is key.

@eleczilla thanks for the feedback! And good news, we are listening and actually currently working on bringing a native tab grouping feature to Firefox. We'll share more updates here as they are available 😃

@aminoughtI tested the Tree Style Tabs add-on and it was interesting. I might use it several times a year. May I know why don't you just use the add-on?

 

 I understand having it as a native feature means more long term support because add-ons vanish sometimes, and honestly even though I might not use tree style tabs a lot, but I will definitely use it several times a year and I would be so thankful for it because whenever I am digging in a Rabbit hole of links like when I am reading about a new topic on Wikipedia and then I have to read about sooo many different things to understand that topic, I usually keep clicking those blue terms and then get lost on which order I should read them. and having a tree style tab view would help me see where I am at that research.

As soon as this is available I'm back on Firefox as my primary browser.

Will this be a thing on Firefox iOS anytime soon?
