the only way to rearrange Containers is to edit "containers.json"

when I click on Firefox Multi-Account Containers Extension button and then click on Manage Containers, it shows an option to arrange the containers but that arrangement only shows when you click on the extension button. if you right click the NewTab button (+) the container is listed as before.

I suggest when the user modify the order of Containers that it would also reflect everywhere in firefox and most importantly on the New Tab button.

Also, Separators (like in Firefox bookmark folders.) Separators, would be an additional way group multi account containers along with folders.

Lastly, not for me, but many suggested this, which is to add a way to rearrange the Containers alphabetically.

Hey all,

Good news...

This is being worked on — a big thanks to Cimbali who made the patch (see work here).

Feel free to keep the conversation going and stay tuned for updates 🙌

@JonIs this for sorting containers? Or also organizing them into folders/groups?

@OGIt is only for sorting/rearranging the container list across the UI (new tab button, about:preferences#containers, etc) and be feature parity with the Multi-Account Containers addon.

The work is mainly driven by contributors and there's currently no plan to have folders/groups but we can always open an new idea specifically to track this feature if/when needed.

It's been more than half a year since the patch.. I wonder when it will be integrated into the stable release? 😎
