From the previous post on Crowdicity:
I would like to see vertical tabs baked in. MS Edge now has it out of the box!
I currently use addons for this - but there's no way to disable the top tab bar, which duplicates the tabs and takes up space.
Vertical tabs (with top bar disabled) would free up more space for web content, which is (usually) vertical. Most screens are widescreen (RIP ThinkPad 4:3 ratios), so the less browser UI at the top/bottom, the more content we can view.

I was looking for this if this was a native way to show tabs, sadly not yet. But I hope it will become native.
Vivaldi does this very well and makes you realise how much more intuitive it is to have the tabs down the side of the page. Firefox feeslquire awkward in comparison. Please Mozilla, do this.
This is why I'm not switching (back) to FF yet. Edge for me, until this is incorporated in a minimizable way. I need my screen real estate.
@JonNot sure what's exciting about "trending idea" – isn't that a step back from "has been reviewed by the product team at Mozilla"?
@everyone great idea... So, but ... I think it would be really cool to have the two ideas together: Native Vertical Tabs (like in Microsoft Edge)+New Compact Design - That would be really big, it would be the best design... of all time ... for Mozilla Firefox ;D
Clarifying my idea:
Up for this! I am waiting for this feature to completely switch over Mozilla Firefox. Currently using Edge.
Here with another exciting update…
This idea has been upgraded to "In review" which means it will be brought to our internal teams for review—learn more about The Idea Journey. As soon as we have another update on its status, we’ll let you know right here in the comment section.
Stay tuned 😃

because i use more than 500+ tabs, i love to use Tree Tabs add-on.
Is it possible to Firefox team to develop something very similar natively for the browser?
To be honest, I'm not sure anymore that it is a good idea for Mozilla to work on this.
I think most who want vertical tabs have already solved it on their own.
I'm uncertain a Mozilla-provided implementation would be better than what users have already built themselves, but Mozilla doing something comes with the real danger of breaking user-implemented vertical tab designs.
Hi all! I found this repository that modifies Mozilla Firefox for this. Source-code: https://github.com/ranmaru22/firefox-vertical-tabs "Vertical tabs for Firefox, inspired by Edge. Works with Light theme, Dark theme, and System theme (auto dark mode). There are some minor glitches with Alpenglow but they should be easy to fix."
