Tab groups and sync extensions has already been suggested but yet to be implemented.

With Firefox it is possible to send (copies of) Tabs to other device as well as open up (a new copy) of tabs from other devices with the Synced Tabs feature. Using these are tedious and gets arduous. Plus now you have the same website(S) open on different devices and will show up in the "Synced Tabs" as separate tabs making the Sync Tabs list bulky and inefficiently redundant.

I work in one window, multiple tabs, (its easy to loose tabs when working in multiple windows).

I want when I close a tab on one device, it closes on all my devices. Open, change URL, etc. While this may not be good for classic browsing on multiple devices, using separate spaces/groups that sync together turns multiple devices into a single seamless continuity.

tab groups are organized by user preference and not device and by Syncing tab groups it will feel like working on a single device instead of multiple devices. Closing a tab in a group will mean that the tab is closed on all devices, etc. Separate devices can have different active groups.

Extensions exist that can group tabs, backup, and restore, but they cannot be synced live which is something I believe Firefox can and should implement themselves if they are not willing to sync all extension settings/data.

This would be perfect for me. I frequently switch between working on my desktop and laptop and making sure all the tabs are synced is a pain. It would be even better if the data from add-ons is also automatically synced as I make heavy use of tab groups.

Since many years I am looking for the same thing !!! I get mad sending open tabs from one device to another and the only way to have the same organization is with bookmarks witch requires a lot of work and time.  The best would be: I open a new tab in a group and it the same on all devices, the same if I close a tab.  Would be wonderfull.

It will be wonderful! I think about this feature many years too. Please, implement it.

Adding another vote for the synced tabs. It's a bummer to read the hype about the browser -- work in one place, change computers and pick up where you left off -- then discover when you start work that it doesn't quite work that way and to create a reasonable facsimile requires a lot of create a group, sync the group, then close all those tabs on the other machine and reload the group so it looks like the one I left.

I love this extension
it would be a great feature to include online save of the current status, where you could read it from different computers.

Edge has Workspaces now ( and it's really improving productivity when working across multiple devices. I start something in the office and later pick it up in my home-office, and vice-versa. No need to remember to send tabs or open them individually from history/synced tabs from other devices.

That sounds like the experience I had with Safari. Even though the administration there was quite cumbersome, I miss the possibility of having different workspaces synchronized on several devices.
A nice addition in my eyes could be to make this synchronization via a separate server (without desktop), so that links would not only be shared but also available on the server in the terminal.
