- Rated 3 out of 5It's great when it works, but it stopped working awhile ago for me.Hello!
Thanks for review, if you have problems with extension you can send me email with more informations (eg. what exactly stop working).
So sorry for any problems that you have, extension is still in beta so not always everything works.
- Rated 5 out of 5Works great, simple and easy to use.
FYI, you can not suspend a tab that you are looking at (active page).
Also if you see that some sites do not suspend, check the options, by default pined tabs, audio playing tabs are not suspendable, you need to uncheck this in options.
Thanks and Good job Piotr!
- Rated 4 out of 5Thank you so much. A white-list would be AWESOME!
- Rated 5 out of 5This is what I was looking for. There are other tab suspenders for Firefox, but this one is the best for me as it keeps the suspended/hibernated tabs frozen as I click on them. This feature was what i was missing from TGS over at Chrome.
As a little advice for the developer, you could make that as a tickbox option. And possibly make the suspended tab page a little more pretty (use that space to your advantage). Also, a little request, is it possible to make that page dark? (would be AMASING!)Hello and thanks for review!
A moment ago I released new version of addon that contain simple dark mode!
There also some more new features!
- Rated 5 out of 5I'm lovng this add-on and it has made Firefox usable again for me. As others have noted, it's very comparable to The Great Suspender. I wanted to request a feature if it is not yet already in the works. My favorite feature of TGS is that when it suspended a Youtube video it would save the timestamp in the URL. Though maybe some of my privacy add-ons are interfering with this somehow.
- Rated 5 out of 5As one who opens hundreds of tabs at times, this addon is a lifesaver.
- Rated 3 out of 5Using FF68.0.1 in spanish, the addon's behavior is quite random. I still couldn't manage to find the "suspend other tabs" or the "right/left" features, and a whietelist should be a must. Still, 3 stars because the automatic suspending works as it should
Developer responseposted 4 months agoHello, thanks for review!
Options related to manual suspending are available when you click on tab with right button of mouse.
If you will still have problems, feel free to send me e-mail!
Whitelist will be added in future.
- Rated 3 out of 5Does its job, but seems to have been (update: partially) broken by Firefox v68.0.
- Rated 5 out of 5It may look experimental, but really does a good job. I missed this feature so much after migrating browsers.
- Rated 4 out of 5thx for the hardwork
one suggestion: how about add feature to auto reload when viewing tab in suspension
Developer responseposted 5 months agoHello!
Thanks for your review! Feature that you mentioned is in plans, but first I need to fix bugs related with auto-suspending and write some code tests!
- Rated 4 out of 5Seemingly does what should. Would love to have a "dark mode" option for the suspended tab screen though. As it it, it's a bit blinding every time I go to open a suspended tab.
- Rated 3 out of 5Has potential, but when I found it doesn't auto-reload tabs on re-opening them, I removed it, but it had unloaded those tabs already and lost the URL, so I had to manually search to find the sites I had open.
Developer responseposted 6 months agoHello topbob!
Thanks for review and reporting issue!
There is still some problems and bugs on which I work.
Extension is still in experimental state!
- Rated 4 out of 5Seems to work perfectly fine. I'd like to suggest something that would be massively beneficial, and that "The great suspender" has as a feature: The ability to load the page as soon as you select it.
With a few more options/features, it'd be a 5 star add -on.
- Rated 5 out of 5Overall, better than the Google Chrome app (The Great Suspender) and better than many other options available for Firefox.
- Does what it is intended to do and nothing more (that I can tell)
- Not in the way, doesn't add a useless icon to the toolbar and doesn't have a pop up to add to the CF of syncing your account on a new machine (or fresh install)
- Easily modify the settings to adjust how long until tab timeout.
- Thoughtlessly saves CPU and memory resources in the world of JS hogging memory with its crappy variable definitions that enable hogs (like trackers) to not only spy on you, but use your computer's resources to do so.
- No carryover of settings to new browsers/fresh install (likely more of a Mozilla issue), meaning if you forget to adjust it, everything gets frozen
- Restored tabs do not return to point on page you left reading, so if you are doing something like referencing several pages and forget to pin something, you will loose your place (also likely a Mozilla issue)
- More options would be nice (or plug-ins to other extensions allowing suspension and tab grouping to be united in function)
- suspended tabs have a new (Mozilla defined) url, which throws off tab grouping
- Rated 4 out of 5Almost a perfect replacement for 'The Great Suspender' from Chrome, but the automatic suspension has been unreliable:
- Pinned Tabs are still getting suspended now and then even with 'Never Suspend' enabled
- Audio Playing Tabs are still getting suspended now and then even with 'Never Suspend' enabled
- I have '600' seconds set for my auto suspension timer, but sometimes tabs will be suspended almost immediately when I switch to another one
Very good otherwise!Hello!
Sorry for bugs that you have!
I'm still actively working on extension, in future versions bugs that you mentioned will be fixed!
