- Rated 5 out of 5Respect!
- Rated 5 out of 5So i just updated to Temporary Containers 1,05 in Firefox 70.0.1 64 Bit on Windows 10 1909 64 Bit, and when i next restarted Firefox i lost hundreds of temporary containers with no way to replace them, my permanent containers are there and untouched.
When i try to open a website that is not a permanent container it never turns into a temporary container-(using automatic mode) and just loads forever.
When i create new temporary container by opening a new tab, 1, 5, 10 new tabs, the amount doesn't matter, they create and are a new temporary container that has not loaded a website yet, which is what is supposed to happen, BUT, when i close Firefox and launch it again, right after Firefox loads i can watch all of those Recently Created Temporary Containers Disappear and the nearest Permanent Container will start to load.
Re-installed Temporary Containers version 1.03 and everything works as expected, MINUS Hundreds of Forever Lost Temporary Containers.
For some reason i think it has something to do with "- reset container number on startup (#280)
- reset container number (#280) - "Another maybe useful setting might be "Reset after browser restart", but i was never asked if i wanted to "reset after browser restart" when i upgraded to version 1.05. My setting was still set to "Reuse Available Numbers" though.
Feel free to ask any questions if you need some more info.,
Fast fix. i'll try it later.
Developer responseposted 9 days agoVery sorry this happened. Reason was the "container cleanup refactoring", which was long overdue since it had some bad code hammering the API, which made problems especially on older hardware. Unfortunately, in the process to make it better, there was a major oversight - tabs already being open (on add-on initialization, which means after add-on update or browser restart), were not taken into account, leading to the deletion of those containers. It's fixed in version 1.6. I'll add some tests to cover that scenario so that it doesn't happen again.
Also rephrased the release notes to make it clear that the things you mentioned are just new preferences, no new defaults or behavior introduced there.
- Rated 5 out of 5Finally! A way to handle all the cookies, tracking, and other privacy bull pux! If you don't know how to setup containers, google or ask someone. Fortunately my really smart son feels the same about all the privacy issues and helps me! Your INTERNET provider collects ALL your data and sells it to multiple marketing companies, Homeland Security, & a plethora of other evil 3-letter .gov agencies! Just say NO to Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc monitoring ALL your browsing activity!
- Rated 1 out of 5il refonctionnait et il vient juste de ne pas fonctioné
- Rated 5 out of 5Temporary Containers give me error in Firefox 70, Win 7 Ultimate x64 and block totally the browser. Uninstall and new install do not help.
On Linux Mint work excellent!
EDIT: The problem was in Firefox. In the latest version 70.0.1 all is OK.
- Rated 5 out of 5Terrific add-on, lets me essentially open mostly private tabs in a normal session. Would be nice if it had its own cookie blocking settings as well, all third party cookies being an example.
- Rated 3 out of 5i give 5 if add custom proxy in tmp containers
- Rated 1 out of 5Used to work fine. Now temporary containers goes crazy and keeps opening tabs until I shut down firefox.
- Rated 5 out of 5This is the way that containers should have been implemented natively. Thanks for this add-on and the effort that you put into this.
- Rated 5 out of 5great
- Rated 4 out of 5Cool work :-)
I'd rather have some more control of temporary container names/colours, though: when you open several temporary containers at the same time, having them only called “tmp1”, “tmp2”, etc. may be a little confusing (it's possible to change it in the preferences, but that's not really user-friendly).
I wish the toolbar button could display a small popup allowing to select the name, colour and icon for the container (pre-filled with the automatic settings). Would it be possible?
*EDIT after the answer* I thought it as an option (I presumed that was in the aims of the toolbar popup when activated, but sadly not). I agree that it should not be the default behaviour.
Developer responseposted 3 months agoThanks!
Since the Add-on is about temporary containers, having the option to change name/color/icon for already opened containers might lead to the impression that they're not really temporary but permanent instead - so I'll probably not implement such a feature.
You can however long-click the new tab button, which reveals the container list and a "Manage Containers" button at the bottom, which is a quick-access to the container preferences where you could change its properties. Hope that helps.
- Rated 5 out of 5works well
- Rated 1 out of 5Confusing interface and support docs. I couldn't get it to do what I thought it was supposed to do.
