Please implement Workspaces in the way that current Opera browsers have. It's an incredibly slick way to compartmentalize things, which is super helpful for neurodivergents like myself. I'm currently utilizing separate/different browsers to achieve similar.

Basically a vertical list of icons for each Workspace on the side (a button in the toolbar with a dropdown to select Workspaces would suffice), that instantly switch to all the Tabs open in a given Workspace and hides everything else. Pinned Tabs stay with each Workspace. Tab Groups can exist within a Workspace.

I've tried all the "similar" Firefox addons people suggested throughout the tubes, but as Prince said, "Nothing Compares 2 U".

  • They all seem to reload tabs when you switch, which is not fast and therefore not slick. 🙂
    • Some are worse, you have to manually save a "session" and then it'll reload all the tabs in the session when you switch. Not slick.
  • They all seem to (purposefully) show Pinned Tabs regardless of Workspace.
    • Perhaps ~Globally-Pinned Tabs that always show regardless of Workspace selected could be useful for others, but unnecessary for me at the moment.
  • Some similar ideas "containerize" each ~workspace, which requires you to log into each site in each Workspace separately -- not what I want. I want all my stuff accessible from each Workspace. My Work & Home identities are on separate computers.
    • A "container" feature is different than this request but I think they could work together. E.g. create a Workspace, choose an identity/account/etc. for it. Outside the scope of this request.

E.g. I have:


  1. A Main Workspace with my main email + tasks + feed reader pinned, then use that area for general browsing (i.e. normal life).
  2. A Gaming Workspace with maps & stuff for games I'm currently playing.
  3. A Dev Workspace with all my Dev-related stuff (source control sites, another email account, etc.).
  4. Temporary Workspaces for when rabbit holes go too deep...
  5. Etc.

I'd likely make even more use of them if they were in my preferred browser. (fanboi since Phoenix🔥🦅)

No idea how this would translate in mobile, not concerned with that for the time being. Desktop Firefox on Windows/Linux.

Also not concerned with being able to sync Workspaces across browsers -- I think we can already see open tabs in other browsers sync'd to our Firefox accounts, good enough for me.

Tab Work Spaces

I do both hardware and software development. I use a different set of tabs / url's for software development than I use for hardware development. It would be nice to have tabs assigned to different work spaces that I could open automatically depending on my work focus.

Yes, I would love that!

Yeah, Vivaldi workspaces looks cool.

Please, please, please add this... Opera's workspace feature is literally the only thing keeping me from switching to Firefox. Every few months or so I open up Firefox again to see if there's any addons that could possibly mimic Opera workspaces but it's not the same. I want to switch so badly but I can't leave workspaces behind.

Multi-account to be more user friendly

I really like this feature but it is not very easy to use.
I have a suggestion to have something like that opera have for workspaces

So I can just use one for work and one for my personal use, it will be more user-friendly and easier to use the multi-accounting feature

Opera just screwed up the UI and their adblocker with their new update. This feature is literally the only thing keeping me from instantly switching to firefox. I created an account just to post this comment

YES! That functionality is a game changer! I am using it in egde at my work an its brilliant!
If this one and tab grouping would apear in Firefox I would surly abandon any other browser.

Pretty please devs - make it a reality! 🙏

I love it if Firefox implemented a "workgroups" feature like Opera has

The title says it all:  Opera has a feature called "workgroups" that allows you to group active tabs in categories, with a vertical bar on the left side and an icon for each workgroup, and switch from one to the other effortlessly..  (Vivaldi also has workgroups, but the implementation in Opera is far better IMHO.

Currently, I have lots of tabs open on Firefox and organizing them and FINDING the ones I want at any given moment are both difficult and time-consuming tasks.  This would solve that problem.

I think other users might also enjoy such a feature.
