- by Firefox user 14328031, a year agoRated 3 out of 5Brilliant use of containers, if only it wouldn't be so absolutely confusing. The settings here are overwhelming and I'm not sure what they do.Feel free to open an issue on GitHub (https://github.com/stoically/temporary-containers/issues) with specific questions about settings that are unclear and I'll try to answer them.
- by Paul McLanahan, a year agoRated 5 out of 5I love this addon! There are so many options, and it's such a huge win for web privacy! I hope many of these ideas can be integrated into Firefox itself. Brilliant work!
- by kvdias, a year agoRated 5 out of 5An incredible improvement over the default Private Window and an excellent complement to the official Multi-Account Containers add-on.
Steep learning curve but once you get your head around the container concept, it is remarkably powerful.
- by Firefox user 14432039, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Options were a little confusing to setup, but overall this is a fantastic extension and it's a shame that this functionality wasn't in the official multi-container extension to begin with.
- by Firefox user 14264986, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great extension to isolate user activity without doing much work by the user, in automatic mode. However, I noticed a few problems.
Right click menu on a link does not provide "open in new temporary container"
Dragging a selected text into the address bar, (which I imagine does something equivalent to opening a new tab, putting that text into the address bar and clicking 'go'.) actually does the whole thing in the same container I am in. This prevents the isolation.
Could this be caused by some settings? I use the recommended settings (Automatic mode and global setting of open cntrl+click or middle click into new container.)Thanks! The context menu (right click) on a link should provide that option - and in my case it works. Sometimes HTML/CSS makes text look like links but in fact they are not actually "a-elements" which are needed for the context menu to work. You might want to check at several places and also make sure you didn't deactivate the context menu in the Advanced -> General -> Context Menu preferences. In case the problem persists I'd need more information; feel free to open a new issue on GitHub in this case: https://github.com/stoically/temporary-containers/issues
Dragging text into the address bar is not catched by "Mouse Clicks"-Isolation. You'd need to configure "Navigating in Tabs"-Isolation for that to work. The reason the Navigating-Isolation isn't recommended is that it breaks redirects to 3rd-party domains (e.g. SSO Logins, Payments) which need to be dealt with.
- by Firefox user 14145875, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5This addon is exactly what i was looking for. It can be configured to open all sites in their own container and most importantly, removing cookies once the tab is closed and keeping them separate from other containers.
I found one tiny annoyance however: when using the extension as a default for all new tabs opened and opening a new tab with either CTRL+T or by clicking the new tab icon, the url field is not focused afterwards, so I have to hit CTRL+L or click the field before i can type a new url. The normal behavior of firefox is to focus the url field after opening a new tab, making it easy to just start typing a new url.
So I just would like an option (or default behavior) that the url field is focused after a new tab is opened, so I can just type the url right after hitting CTRL+T.In Automatic Mode new tabs should get focus since they are just opened by the Firefox Webextensions API - and it works for me. Maybe it was a fluke in Firefox, but if the problem persists for you I'd need more information about your environment and settings - the best way would be a new issue on GitHub: https://github.com/stoically/temporary-containers/issues. Thanks.
- by Firefox user 13861609, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5So far the best container extension out there I've found to complement Mozilla's original extension. I love how ridiculously specific the options get, and the Alt-X shortcut (opening a new tab in the same container as the active one) has saved me so much mouse movement.
