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.

Not good

I just switched from MS Edge to Firefox for web browsing full time and I'm already missing both the baked-in vertical tabs and hidden horizontal tab bar present in Edge. Would absolutely love these two cosmetic features implemented in Firefox.

I can't understand why this function is not yet in the browser, while Edge has had it for a long time.
I've been using Edge for a while now mostly for the same reason. The current monitors are landscape but the web pages are vertical. This is something that is important to fix.

+1 for this feature.
It's RIGHT in terms of UX to not to take up a vertical space, which is hardly enough on modern 16:9 and 21:9 screens, let's take a horizontal one!
This is also a necessary feature in my work. Without it, it is impossible to work with 30+ Jira tickets. The only thing that keeps me from leaving Edge. Waiting for so long to come back to Firefox family 😢

Also please let me hide the title when vertical tabs are enabled

That would be a nice feature to have. I've tried dozens of add-ons and other customization, but none of them were as smooth and well rounded as a native implementation would be.

Microsoft Edge's implementation of vertical tabs is awesome for me. I started using it and can't go back to normal tabs on top. I hope Firefox adds this natively to the browser (optional of course!). Right now that's one of two (native sleeping tabs like MS Edge) things stopping me from using it full time but that's just me. 🙂

Microsoft documented how they decided to make it here:

It is really useful while opening many tab. Since I browse from laptop screen of side really go to waste while browsing website also vertical screen size is low in Firefox from new design. So this feature will be really useful.

This idea has a lot of support and should move forward to the development stage. If there is still something to be discussed, please clarify it.
