- by Kitty None, a year agoRated 3 out of 5A great add-on in basic concept, but full of small frustrations. Once created, tab containers can't be rearranged. And if you leave a container open when you close the browser, when you reopen it your tabs will likely as not have been dumped out of their containers and there's no way to fix it except by opening the menu and choosing "reopen in container" for ever single tab individually.
Still, even if it's buggy I'm glad this extension exists. Hopefully they fix it someday so I can bump this review up two more stars.
- by Vix, a year agoRated 3 out of 5This is useful but I hate when opened all the tabs of a container I close Firefox without hiding them and I lose the container content. Since I spend time to organize my containers I would expect to have it persistent somehow.
- by takaouto, a year agoRated 3 out of 5This is a great extension now that I am working from home, I can keep logged in to the accounts I need and simply hide them when I don't want to be distracted during work.
The only reason it isn't get the full stars is because I can't seem to find a way to get the tabs to stay in their containers on restart.
Scratch that, which makes it more frustrating - only the personal container tabs that I had hidden during the day come out of their containers. If I had a personal container that I opened in the evening and therefore didn't hide since creating it --- they show up in their containers on restart perfectly fine.
So when I turn on the computer in the morning I have to spend time 'reopen in container' most of the tabs I had the day before. While dumbfoundedly looking at the random tabs that didn't get yeeted into the non-container space.
- by Assistance, a year agoRated 3 out of 5Where are your novice training procedures? How does a user push content into different containers? How does a user modify incorrectly filed websites? How does a user access tree structure? Does anyone have a decent tutorial for this addon?
- by Firefox user 13699166, a year agoRated 3 out of 5The latest version isn't working for me as every time I close my browser (85 64 bit) the extension doesn't work so I have to create new containers again - or am I missing something?
- by ----, a year agoRated 3 out of 5I have a love hate relationship with this addon, as it is a halfbaked solution, missing many UX easy of use features. For example if I open a window in one container, I would like to associate to that to Work/Play environment and not always click on the stupid container addon to select which container I want to open a window in. Please think more about the design and usability of this addon.
- by Gaël, a year agoRated 3 out of 5The extension is interesting, but there is a big access problem with Sharepoint. When Sharepoint is in a container, I can't click on a link toward Sharepoint, the access is denied.
- by Bowser, a year agoRated 3 out of 5Great app, easy to use though occasionally a bit clunky. However,
-1 star because I can't save tabs and containers, just tabs. So if I save facebook, but have a personal and business account in two separate containers, it will reopen a single facebook tab. Please add this feature
-1 start because wildcard urls aren't supported (e.g. www.*.example.com and www.example.com/*)
- by Firefox user 15776659, a year agoRated 3 out of 5This add-on is a good idea and I really want to use it. But there's a few things that keep it down for me
1) Lack of wildcard subdomain support is a killer. I read the issue on the subject and it seems there's privacy concerns with that. But the fact is that all the big sites you'd really want to confine to a container use subdomains constantly and often so it makes it frustratingly difficult to actually confine a site like google to its own container.
2) I could probably live with #1 if there was a way to tell the extension to open the current site in a specified container in the future. Right now it appears you have to copy the url, use the extension to make a tab in the desired container, revisit the site and then tell it to stay there. That's a whole lot of steps for something you're going to have to do all the time without wildcard subdomain support.
3) Once you're in a container, all navigation done from websites in that container remain in that container. So for instance, if I put google in a container and then click a link the search result, that link opens in the same container. This completely undermines the point for me, I can't actually use this to keep a site from tracking me unless I go put every single site on the internet in its own box manually. That's entirely too much effort, especially given the difficulty of actually putting a site in its own container (see #2)
I'm giving this 3 stars and will probably keep using it because it is still convenient as a multi-session tool. Going to the same site in multiple sessions is something I have to do for work a lot so it is handy for that. But I'm hoping it evolves because it could be quite a lot more if they made it easier to just completely containerize the sites of your choice.
- by Martin Phillips, a year agoRated 3 out of 5Leaky. I've got three containerised tabs open to crosscountrytrains.co.uk showing different legs of a journey. Trying to book through one tab gives a booking connection to a different tab.
- by Nibinaear, a year agoRated 3 out of 5It's exactly what I've been looking for, but I have a few gripes about it:
1. Moving existing tabs to containers is a real pain (new users). The only way I know is to Right click tab > Reopen in container, but this produces a duplicate and then I have to delete the old tab.
2. It's very slow to toggle containers on/off and you can't see which ones are currently switched on. it could do with a simple toggle method which would grey out the group or show a hidden icon next to it. Personally I would like to use 1 group at a time and leave the others off.
3. Very limited list of colours and icons for containers. It needs basics such as music, films, news, coding, videos etc.
4. I've moved the icon to replace the new tab button in the toolbar using Customize. Could the CTRL+T shortcut be linked with the addon as well?
5. After adding loads of tabs using above method 1 of my groups is totally empty, others seem suspiciously empty (1-2 tabs only), I have lost quite a few tabs by using this.
6. Not compatible with "group speed dial" for opening new tabs
7. When reloading the browser tabs fall out of containers and they become empty, defect?
- by Firefox user 12765412, a year agoRated 3 out of 5The extension is generally good, however... WHY IS IT NOT AVAILABLE FOR ANDROID?!
Same issue with syncing multicontainers: since I've got only 1 PC and 2 mobile phones, I want to sync it between PC and Android device, not between 2 PCs.
Please add this feature and my rating will go up to 5 stars straight away.
