- by HobbesOTR, 7 days agoRated 5 out of 5After giving up on the competition, I returned to the Mozilla universe. In doing so, I found that FF was no longer the problem child it had once been. It's now speedy and fun once more. Only thing missing was decent tab manager. Enter Tab Stash. This is one of the sleekest, simplest and reliable extensions I've encountered. Josh, you've done what Mozilla could not - gave FF a good, reliable tab manager - I LOVE IT! Ya did a great job and made a lot of users happy. Only thing I'd change at this point is to add an opportunity to click on a stashed tab, have it open and remain in the stash.Thanx!!!
Developer responseposted 6 days agoThanks, I'm really glad to hear Tab Stash is working well for you!
Re. your comment about switching tabs, you actually can--just click on the tab title itself (NOT the yellow "Open and delete" button). Tab Stash will switch to or open the tab (restoring it from an existing hidden or recently-closed tab if possible) but keep it in the stash.
Hope this helps, and thanks again for the kind words!
- by Simone.parvizi, 13 days agoRated 5 out of 5GREAT. it's literally what i wanted. I would just put further away the "open and close everything " button from the "open every tab" button, so that it would be less probable to missclick. THANK YOU
- by jonassa, 20 days agoRated 5 out of 5I have tried probably 10-15 tab management extensions over the years, for both Firefox and Chrome. This is the best one I've ever used. It's simple and does the job.
Using bookmark folders to store tabs is ideal, because these can be synced with your Firefox account, and everything that is already possible to do with bookmarks (such as export/import) works here as well.
I love that I can set up a keyboard shortcut to stash and close the tabs of the current window. I wish there was a shortcut to open the stash in a tab without closing anything however.
Developer responseposted 15 days agoThanks for the review and I'm glad you're enjoying it!
If you're interested in this keyboard shortcut, I'd encourage you to open a feature request here: https://github.com/josh-berry/tab-stash/issues/new?template=feature_request.md
There's a bit more space on GitHub for discussion, Q&A, etc. about feature requests and bugs, and keeping everything in one place on GitHub helps me to organize and track everything.
- by Firefox user 17123614, 23 days agoRated 5 out of 5This wonderful add-on has saved me from being buried alive under hundreds of tabs from different projects I'm working on.
I do have a few feature requests, would it be possible to add a setting in the options menu, so you can sort the tab groups from newest to oldest? This would save me from scrolling all the way down to the bottom of a large tab group to see the newest tabs within that group.
Perhaps even an option to pin specific tab groups at the top of the list?
Regardless this extension is an absolute lifesaver!
Developer responseposted 21 days agoHi, thanks for your review and I'm glad you've found Tab Stash useful!
Feature requests are tracked on GitHub, you can see the entire list here: https://github.com/josh-berry/tab-stash/labels/i-enhancement
Looks like there is one filed for pinning groups already (feel free to subscribe to the issue for updates):
I don't think we have one yet for changing the order of the groups, but if you'd like to file a new one and share any additional details/thoughts that might be helpful, here's where to go:
- by CF Davis, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5Tab Stash is a truly useful extension. It improves considerably on the classic OneTab.
I started with OneTab several years ago, but it proved too quirky and unstable and easy to lose everything. I migrated to Better OneTab until it no longer worked with new versions of Firefox, so I begrudgingly returned to OneTab.
I had more than 1,500 webpages saved in OneTab, mostly articles I might need to refer to while writing but not "worthy" of being bookmarks. I found Tab Stash when I needed to do a refresh for Firefox and knew I would lose my OneTab list. (A saved export could be imported into the fresh Firefox, but what a hassle.)
Tab Stash solved several problems, starting with being able to import a OneTab export file. Then, since Tab Stash stores its contents as an addition to Firefox's bookmarks under the "Other Bookmarks" category, the Tab Stash contents survive a Firefox refresh and are ready to go when the extensions are reinstalled in Firefox.
After using OneTab, there was a slight learning curve for adding single or multiple tabs to Tab Stash groups. I'm not keen on Tab Stash displaying in a sidebar, although preferable to displaying in a new tab. There is an "advanced setting" that displays Tab Stash in a popup -- my personal choice.
Tab Stash needs to be open to save a tab into a specified tab group. I will give OneTab credit for being able to save tabs to a named tab group through a right-click menu without OneTab being open.
With hordes of saved pages, the capability to collapse the tab groups so only the group headings display is most appreciated -- saves a lot of scrolling to get to where you need to be.
The export function is a definite plus, offering a choice of six formats, and will save the group headings with ## to identify them. As if that isn't enough, they can be backed up along with bookmarks through Firefox's Manage Bookmarks function. The "Clickable Links" option essentially creates an HTML page that can be pasted into Word, although I would like a full HTML output option as well.
All in all, Tab Stash is an immensely useful addition to Firefox for anyone who needs to keep track of numerous webpages on a semi-permanent basis but doesn't want to clutter up their bookmarks collection.
Developer responseposted 2 months agoHi, thanks for sharing your experience, and I'm glad you've found Tab Stash helpful!
I'm glad to hear the popup view is working well for you. The main reason it's still marked as "experimental" is there are a few cases that are not handled well right now (e.g. closing the popup in the middle of a stash or un-stash operation will stop the operation midway through). But I do plan to make it "non-advanced" once all such issues are worked out.
Also glad to hear you've found the export feature useful; I'll keep your point about HTML output in mind. Thanks again!
- by Peeves, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5Most session managers have UIs that are too complex or just badly designed.
This is finally one where every visible button is actually useful, and it doesn't try to do more than it needs to while doing everything it does need to do.
May be the perfect session manager addon.
