  • The problem is that there are cases when all duplicate tabs are closed without keeping neither of them.
    -auto-close on
    -no filters
    -keep newer tab (keep tab with HTTPS, keep pinned tab)
    -scope: active window

    The situation occurs when both tabs were loading simultaneous!

    Developer response

    Thanks for the details.

    So it happens with autoclose and newer. I'll search this way.

    When you write "all duplicate tabs are closed" you means only the existing one and the new one?
    Did you noticed if the older tab was completely loaded? or if both tabs were loading?

    I guess you haven't be able to reproduce the problem with the same URL?

    ****Update ******
    I've found something that can explain your problem.
    I'll push a fix soon.
  • ok
  • Simple yet customize-able interface does the job.
    Filters provide even more advanced options.

    Thanks for the review!
  • Feature request:
    Don't show the badge and number when there is no duplicated tab.

    Developer response

    Sorry but from what I've seen in the API I cannot unload the button.
    Another option would be to use the pageAction https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/pageAction.
    But by doing this you cannot access the options unless there are duplicates tabs or if you go to the "Add-ons Manager" tab (about:addons).
    It seems less convenient to use.

    Thanks for the review.
  • Very good but has a bug:
    By applying filters for ignoring both "hash part" and "search part" it will not work for duplicate tabs that have only "hash part".
    For example for the following URLs one time apply only "ignore hash part filter" and another time apply both "ignore hash part filter" and "ignore search part filter".

    Thanks for the report.
  • muß ich erst ausprobieren !
  • Sooo good! Taming my 99 tabs with gdocs, things to read and random assortment!

    Thanks for the review!
  • This is super useful extension. I use it a lot.

    Some suggestions for improvements:

    * Allow possibility to "ignore" some open tab so it's not taken into consideration when checking for duplicates.
    I had one or two situations when it would be useful (filters we not enough).

    So for example when you have "duplicate tabs" list you could right click and choose "Ignore duplicate checking for this tab" (or some other better text) and this entry on "duplicate list" would get different colour or be in italic to indicate that we ignored this page. We could then click again and uncheck this option.
    When tab is ignored then we don't see number that we have duplicate for it and "Close all duplicate tabs" won't close this tab.
    * I have no idea what this "pin" do on different option sections ("Priority", "Filter", etc). Maybe have some hover over text that explain what it does
    * Make this extension open source - this is of course you personal choice to keep it private. I just think it would be awesome and help improving this great extension even more.

    Developer response

    Your first request is something I know as I also need to duplicate tabs. :)
    I'll work on something after the whitelist feature.

    About the "Priority", "Filter", etc I've tried to explain this in the description of the add-on.
    Filters allows to define how you want to compare the tabs.
    Priority allows to define which tabs to not close.

    I'll move the code on GitHub, just to have time.

    Thanks for the review.
  • This is really handy and has a good set of options for fitting into whatever way you like to browse. You should absolutely give this a try, and open the options panel if it doesn't suit you out-of-the-box.

    The one extra thing I'd like to see is an option to have settings like "ignore path" apply to particular domains only -- I'd love to be able to open four articles from the same website but reliably collapse four instances of the same web-app.

    Developer response

    My next move is for the white/black list rules so it should match the one extra thing you need. :)

    Thanks for the review!
  • Wer sehr viele Tabs offen hat, verliert schon gern mal den Überblick und es können Seiten doppelt geöffnet sein.
    Mit diesem Addon ist damit Schluss. Danke ;-)
  • Hey mate, nice add-on! I got the hint in the Git for Simple Tab Groups (https://github.com/drive4ik/simple-tab-groups) from an other user while asking there for a feature doing what your add-on is doing! .. and now: tataa, my problem is solved. And what i real like is the quick change of the options in the menue ... this add-on has all i need ... btw. i realy love the design! ;-) ... its a litte "ghostery "-like :-D ..

    Developer response

    Thanks for the review!

    and yes the color is inspired from ghostery :)
  • Nice add-on. Works well. A minor issue. When there are multiple pin tabs with the same URL, this add-on closes the oldest pin tab.. It need to close the latest pin tab. If you could fix this, it would be great.

    Developer response

    I cannot reproduce the problem.
    In my tests, depending on the priority set "Keep newer tab/Keep older tab", the newer or older pinned is kept.
    Note: the newer tab is the tab with highest id, if you refresh a tab with a lower id, it will be the newer content but still be the older tab because of its id.
    Let me know if I've missed something.

    Thanks for the review.
  • Super extension overall, but there is a bug in the settings handling for filters.
    If "Ignore search part..." is set, then "Ignore hash part ..." isn't doing anything. Similarly of "Ignore path part ..." is set then the two other settings are useless.

    This is due to "else if" being used in areMatchingURL function from urlUtils.js (line 24, 28). Switching this to independent ifs allows to respect all settings (and support urls having both hash and search signs.

    If possible please bring a fix for this one (I can provide a pull request if the code is on some git repo).
    Thanks in advance.

    Developer response

    Thanks for the report.
    I've fixed the issue.
  • Interesting. But bad design.

    Developer response

    Thanks for the review.

    If you have any advice for the bad design feel free to share.
  • Love the extension! If there's any way to enable blocking multiple tabs from the same domain/subdomain (just for specific domains) that would be really really useful to me. Thanks

    Developer response

    Hi, thanks for the review.

    I've planned to add rules for specific URLs, it should fit your needs.
  • Hey ever since the latest update if you have the addon automatically close the duplicate tab and "On remaining tab" activate, this no longer works. It still closes the new duplicate tab but it no longer switches to the old one.

    Developer response

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll push a new version with the fix today.

    ** Edit **
    Problem solved with version 3.1.5
  • since Fire Quantum, no longer shows mini-window indicating duplicate tabs.

    Developer response

    Thanks for the review.

    Sadly the automatic prompt of popup is not supported by the new webextension API.

    I'll also miss it.
  • Fantastic! I wish I could also remove EMPTY (blank) tabs as well beside that: reliable, perfect!

    Developer response

    Thanks for the review.

    The blank tabs are not recognized by the API probably because it's an intermediate state during the tab loading so you never sure if a blank tab is a blank tab or loading tab.

    I'll may add a tweak in future release.
  • Nice! Finally found the option to not remove tabs when duplicating in another context/container using option scope -> container.

    Developer response

    Thanks for the review.

    Yes it seems that some options where enough visible, I've added a functionality to "pin" some preferred options by default
  • ok

    Thanks for the review!
  • It's not automatic deleting the duplicate tabs as far as I could tell

    Developer response

    Hi,

    I guess the option "Close tab automatically" is not selected.
    Click on the "Duplicate Tab Closer" button.
    In the popup panel =>click on "Options" => click on "On duplicate tab detected" => select "Close tab automatically".

    As the add-on is not named "Automatic Duplicate Tabs Closer", the option to auto close the tabs is not activate by default. ;)
  • Great

    Thanks for the review!
  • Copied this review since it matches mine 100%

    Wow! Excellent Addon! Great Job guys! :-)
    It has closed all my Duplicated Tabs, which have been created by this Addon (Tab Suspender).
    I give you 5 stars! I hope to keep up the good job.

    Developer response

    Thanks for the review!
  • A great extension that helps me keep CPU usage down by aiding in minimizing duplicate tabs. A plus is that the add-on provides options to simply alert user of duplicate tabs or automatically close them when detected.

    Developer response

    Thanks for the review!
  • Great plugin, but the permissions could be chosen more carefully.
    I tried to run it without "webRequest", "webRequestBlocking", "" and it seems to work well.

    (I looked into the code and found nothing fishy)

    Developer response

    thanks for the report, you are right I can remove some permissions not needed anymore (there are others you have not listed that can also be removed).
    I'll push the code in Github so you'll be able to look at the code more easily. :)

    Anyway, I'm not sure it's worth three stars for that.
