- Rated 5 out of 5by DeathGabox, 8 months agoJust like mgkrupa said [(I heard that Mozilla is working on finally giving Firefox its own tab manager, so we'll see if tab manager plugins become unnecessary)].
This is with all my love and I hope the message is understood <3
I hope that all extensions like these are needed again and firefox adopts them natively, I find this extension perfect, it has magnificent synchronization, I can be between my PCs without having to look for another one or search for it in an endless list of pages/History, the I can separate it into different lists and it is simply magnificent, the only pity is that it is not available on the phone through the screen interface, as I see it, the extension does not consume cpu or memory in a strange way, hopefully the rumor that I read is true and firefox take all window managers and unify them, hopefully this extension will work natively :)
Translated from Spanish to English by Google translator, any inconsistency is due to that
Developer responseposted 7 months agoThanks for your review, and I’m glad you’re finding Tab Stash useful!
I also hope that Firefox gains more native tab-management features. Or at least, offers more/better ways for tab-management extensions to integrate into the browser. And I hear you on mobile; I have no way to run/develop on Android right now and Apple doesn’t allow extensions at all. Maybe one day!
- Rated 5 out of 5by mgkrupa, 8 months agoI love that it hides but (by default) doesn't automatically unload/close a tab that you stash (it stays loaded in the background) because it allows you to switch back to the hidden tab without having to reload the page (so e.g. you don't lose your place in a video your watching). You can customize this behavior in the options menu or change it so that stashed tabs are automatically unloaded/closed. It might automatically unload running hidden background tabs under certain conditions but this behavior can be disabled in the options.
There's no picture of it, but the "Tab Stash" submenu in the (right-click) context menu has the items:
Show Stashed Tabs in a Tab
Show Stashed Tabs in Sidebar
Stash This Tab
Stash This Tab to a New Group
Copy Tabs to Stash
Copy This Tab to Stash
Firefox's sidebar (that I previously hardly ever used) makes using this addon extremely convenient because I don't have to open/switch to an intermediate "tab management/list webpage" (i.e. a webpage that lists all tabs & tab groups, like OneTab's "Display OneTab" page).
[EDIT/UPDATE: Turns out you can using the sidebar] You can stash multiple selected tabs at once but I'm not sure if it's possible to stash them directly/immediately into a preexisting named tab group of your choice like you can do with OneTab (I think that stashed tabs either automatically go to the top-most group or it creates a new unnamed tab group - it seems to only create new unnamed tab groups for me but that may be because I've been fiddling with the options).
It would also be nice if there was a menu item like "Close this tab and remove it from all tab groups" so that I don't have to manually find and remove a tab (from the tab groups) once I'm 100% completely done with it.
Overall, I think this is superior to OneTab, which was my previous tab manager (I hear that Mozilla is working on finally giving Firefox its own tab manager so we'll see if tab manager addons become unnecessary).
Developer responseposted 8 months agoHi, thanks for the detailed review! Regarding your question about stashing directly to a particular stash, if you have the sidebar open, the blue buttons with downward-pointing arrows (the first two buttons under each stash name) will do this, but there’s no way to do it from the context menu currently.
There’s an open feature request here that you can keep an eye on though: https://github.com/josh-berry/tab-stash/issues/30
Thanks again and I’m glad to hear you’re finding Tab Stash useful!

Grouping stuff is super comfortable. And the search with unlimited results is great.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Andreas, 9 months agoHi, love this extension. but im currently experiencing alot of ram usage to the point where firefox is useless... i have a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X and 16gb 3000MHz ram.Hi, if you suspect Tab Stash is causing high RAM usage, please feel free to open an issue on GitHub and I'd be happy to help you troubleshoot.
Note that by default, Tab Stash will unload older stashed tabs to prevent memory use from growing too high, and the defaults are calibrated even for lower-spec computers with less memory than yours. So absent a bug, you should not have to worry about memory usage with Tab Stash.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Mike&Anita, 9 months agoFirefox slowed down too much to use it after I installed Tab Stash, I did not meticulously troubleshoot the issue, instead I Reset Firefox and today I researched re-installing Tab Stash but after reading reviews with similar reports of Firefox slowing down I decided not to try it again.
I am using an i7-6700K 4 core CPU running windows 10, which is still a decent powered computer so I really do not know if Tab Stash slowed my computer or just Firefox. I gave Tab Stash two stars for a great list of features, maybe I will try it again in a few months.Hi, there are two known issues in Tab Stash which can cause high CPU usage (see my replies to the other reviews below). However, resetting Firefox should address both issues. So, since you have reset Firefox, I would hope and expect you won't see high CPU from Tab Stash again.
However, if you do notice high CPU usage even after resetting Firefox, please feel free to open an issue on GitHub and I'd be happy to troubleshoot with you further.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Commandr_, 9 months agoreally useful and fantastic extension, as a bonus: had issues and the dev immediately pointed me to a solution.Hello, at the moment, there are two known issues (one in Tab Stash and one in Firefox) that can lead to high CPU usage and which I'm looking into for the next Tab Stash release. Fortunately, there are workarounds for both.
First, if you upgraded to Tab Stash 2.10 from an earlier release and you notice high CPU usage after the upgrade, please try uninstalling/reinstalling Tab Stash (simply disabling it isn't sufficient). Pre-2.10 versions had a bug which left some stale deleted-items entries around, and when you first upgrade to 2.10, those entries will be cleared all at once, resulting in the high CPU. Uninstalling/reinstalling Tab Stash is another, faster way to clear out the old entries.
Second, there is a bug in Firefox's saved session handling which can cause Tab Stash to have high CPU usage. Tab Stash tries to work around this bug, but the workaround is what causes the high CPU. The bug seems to have gotten worse in recent Firefox releases and so I'm looking at ways to improve the workaround. In the meantime, however, clearing out any invalid saved-session data usually resolves the problem; you can find instructions here:
If neither of these things helps, please feel free to open an issue on GitHub and I'd be happy to troubleshoot further with you there.
