  • Hi, I've been using the original Tile Tabs, and immediately switched to Tile Tabs WE when Firefox Quantum was released. Thanks again for this wonderful add-on!

    Up until today, I had some problems selecting the right tabs to display next to each other. I selected 'New Layout' (2 Tabs Vertical as default) but didn't know exactly which tabs would be tiled. The old Tile Tab had a little tab selector in the upper-left side to change the tabs. Only today, I discovered the easiest way is to (1) open the first tab (2) open the context menu on the page and (3) choose 'Tile Tab > Left/Right/Above/Below'. This way, there is no confusion which tab will be opened.

    Therefore, I'd like to make some suggestions to improve the usability of this add-on:
    - Add the Tile Tabs context menu to the tabs (now only available on page itself)
    - Promote the 'Tile Tab' submenu to the first position (above 'New Layout'), as it seems to be the most convenient way to start tiling tabs?
    - Soon, it will be possible to select multiple tabs simultaneously (see Nightly). This offers the possibility to let the user select the tabs to be tiled, and choose a new option 'Tile Selected Tabs' next?
    - Provide a short 'Getting started' page for new users (shown after installing the add-on).

    Thanks for reading. Keep up the good work!

    Developer response

    Thanks for these suggestions, which will be considered for future releases.

    The 'Tile Tab' command has only been able to create a new layout since Version 11.0, which was released a couple of days ago.

    The 'New Layout' command tiles tabs in the following order:

    1. The currently selected tab.
    2. Tabs to the right of the currently selected tab in left-to-right order.
    3. Tabs to the left of the currently selected tab in right-to-left order.

    This assumes you have the 'Assign existing tabs before creating new tabs' option enabled.

  • 5 stars for making the best of firefox's mistake. On that note -- Anyone know of a good alternative browser that doesn't use the horrible chrome add-on api? That was literally the only thing firefox had going for it before.

  • Not the developers fault, but the addon is a shadow of what Tile Tabs used to be.

  • It works fine for the stated purpose of splitting tabs, but it puts their content into separate browser windows, not tabs. This is NOT the fault of the developer but a limitation in the Firefox WebExtensions API.

    We all hope the capability of splitting tabs will come from Mozilla later on....until then, this extention is the best possible implementation on Firefox.

  • super

  • Initially was put off by negative reviews, but the plugin seems to work fine.

  • this is a shadow of the actual extension, this creates a terrible mess of windows and is completely BS

    Developer response

    Tile Tabs WE is written by the developer of the original Tile Tabs - and can do most of the things that the original Tile Tabs could do.

    The main difference is that Tile Tabs tiled tabs in the same window, whereas Tile Tabs WE tiles tabs in separate windows. Features such as opening links in a different tab, synchronized scrolling of tabs, and resizing adjacent tabs are still available in Tile Tabs WE.

    The new WebExtensions API's introduced with Firefox 57 must now be used by all add-ons and do not support displaying multiple tabs in the same browser window.

  • I k ow quantum limitations and so... But I just have see new experiment "side view... Any good news for tile tabs ??? Plz plz plz say yes ^^

  • This addon is certainly not very user friendly compared with original version.
    However, it fulfills the function what I would like to.

  • Not as elegant as the original but it works, and does indeed tile tabs.

    2/5 stars. There's so many entitled butthurt users who don't understand this addon has lovingly been kept alive by the developer at best of his abilities. Direct your energy to Mozilla for breaking this add-on in the first place!

  • Terrible. At least give us the option to revert back to the old tiles page otherwise you're going to have a lot of people installing older versions of Firefox for this functionality.

    There is very little that the old Tile Tabs could do, that Tile Tabs WE cannot do. The main difference is that the old Tile Tabs tiled tabs in the same window, whereas Tile Tabs WE tiles tabs in separate windows. Features such as opening links in a different tab, synchronized scrolling of tabs, and resizing adjacent tabs are still available in Tile Tabs WE.

    The new WebExtensions API's introduced with Firefox 57 must now be used by all add-ons and do not support displaying multiple tabs in the same browser window.

  • Trying to give this a go, since Mozilla isn't going to implement the iframe functionality ... but I can't make it work the way I want to. I was very familiar with Tile Tabs, and what I want to do is to have a window with 4 tabs converted to a 2x2 grid of these tabs. What I get everytime I hit the TT WE button is 2 tiles with one of the tabs tiled, and a a tile with an empty page. I've tried setting the default layout to something else and I always get the same thing :(

    Developer response

    Cannot reproduce this problem. Set the Default Layout as '4 Tabs - Horizontal Grid' and click on the Tile Tabs WE toolbar button to create a 2x2 grid layout of 4 tabs. This should work.

    Please provide the following information and e-mail to: dw-dev@gmx.com

    - Which operating system are you using?
    - Which version of Firefox are you using?
    - Which version of Zoom Page WE are you using?
    - Do you have any other 'tab management' or 'window management' add-ons installed?
    - Please attach screenshots of the Tile Tabs WE Options (both options tabs).

  • Inutilizzabile

    Developer response

    Please explain what makes it unusable.

  • Great extension very useful tool. Highly recommended for you all.

  • je partage mon écran comme je veux c'est sympa

  • Déçu par ce module. J'utilisais la précédente version avant passage à Quantum …
    Mais c'est peut être Firefox la cause depuis Quantum et non Tile Tabs …

    Les fenêtres découpées ne sont plus intégrées à la fenêtre principale, du coup l'intégration est moins pratique.
    Ce n'est qu'une juxtaposition de fenêtres les unes à côté des autres … le truc qu'on peut faire à la main quoi …

    Franchement dommage, c'est le type de plugin que je suis prêt à payer tellement c'est utile ! Mais la l'utilisation c'est impossible !

    J'ai créé un profil Firefox dédié à la une version antérieure pour pouvoir encore l'utiliser … c'est dire !

    Meme constat sur Chrome …

    Une note de 3 pour ne pas sanctionner le développeur …

  • I just love this

  • SInce the latest updated it's been fantastic!

  • Working

    Developer response

    Which version of Firefox are you using?

    Which operating system are you using?

    Exactly what doesn't work? Is the tiled layout not created?

  • While the splitting-into-separate-windows issue is not ideal, I recognize that it's a limitation of the new Firefox rather than this add-on. Aside from that, this add-on is awesome. I wanted something that was close to Vivaldi's tab-tiling feature. This works great for that and I'd argue even better executed. The one thing I wish it had was customizable keyboard shortcuts. It's still great, regardless!

  • Using Tile Tabs WE always unpins my pinned tabs. Then returning back, does not re-pin them. If I don't remember to re-pin them, I'll lose my pinned tabs and need no set them up again. Not worth the time it saved using the extension.

    Developer response

    This issue is fixed in Tile Tabs WE 7.2. Pinned tabs are now re-pinned when a layout is hidden or closed.

  • At first it was bad compared to the previous Tile Tabs. Now they fixed most of the problems including the one that bugged me the most, the fact that it used to put the tiles on your primary monitor, not on the browsers current monitor.

  • I know it's problem of web extensions but still give you one star.

    Developer response

    Please try the latest version: Tile Tabs WE 9.3

  • so sad. Previous Version was SO COOL.
    Not your fault guys - it's the mozilla's... Thanks for providing me a usefull tool for years. The one right now is just useless... I'm back, when there will be a version, similar to the old one!!!

    The 5stars are for the old version and for the future one - not for the current ;-)

  • Not a real Splitter :(
