- by sinekonata, 8 months agoRated 5 out of 5I have no idea why it only occurred to me now to look for this feature when my computer is so old and I have 40+ tabs in 6 groups...
This is amazing, thank you for the work and sorry that FF made you redo your work for nothing.
- by DK23-fa, 8 months agoRated 5 out of 5This is a great add-on!
I always have too many tabs opened and recently Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) ate up more than 60% of my CPU-performance and 90% of the (16GB) RAM. After I have installed this add-on and have used "unload other tabs", Firefox only needs about 3% of my CPU-performance and 25% of the machine's RAM any more.
Thank you very much for your time and effort programming this add-on! I hope that there will be updates for this add-on in the future if necessary.
- by Events, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Useful add-on that works great, a must for people who regularly clog their windows with lots of tabs. My favorite feature is "Unload Other Tabs", which can free up a lot of resources with one click. If there's one thing I'd wish for it would be a "Unload Tabs on the left" option, that way you could leave more than one tab active.

Opened the All Tabs Helper extension and confirmed that ALL TABS other than the current tab were grayed out. This is a FABULOUS tool -- thank you NiklasG!
- by B Tang, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5This really works. Would be better still if it could prevent tabs from loading when opening a lot of tabs at once from a bookmark folder, or unload them each immediately when they load.
