Compared to the legacy versions, the functionality of using a keyboard shortcut to open the tabs list is either missing or the key combination has changed. From ergonomics and efficiency perspective it is a clear weakness as it interrupts my workflow. Please try to add a hotkey combo back to the plugin.
Dommage, pas en français !
This is indispensable, I use it to manage my many tabs. But there has been a few issues since Firefox switched to WebExtnsion (not really the dev's fault)
In the latest version tabs don't stay in the same place after restart, I have grouped tabs for similar topics but they are all over the places after restart.
Also, the first tab loaded after restart always moves to the first position (from the left) no matter where it is.
I checked the option open tab next to current if that matters.
Also search never works since FF57. have to use filter for all tabs.
Thanks for the great work. I rate this as 4 star despite the issues since these are not the dev's fault and I am sure he will work on them.
I thought the whole point in updating software is to make it better, not make it worse and remove features, which is what's happening with AllTabsHelper, what the heck are you doing!? Used to be great. Now so much functionality is missing it would not even be worth installing for some one new to FF or coming to ATH from a different sidebar tab addon. Can't even rearrange tabs from the tab list any longer. Last version that worked perfectly was ver 0.2.38. Like i said, used to be 5 stars ez, now i wouldn't even give it a single star.
developer has an "I'm always right attitude" move along people, this ones not worth your time
"not true" oh really? funny because I'm pretty sure i can tell the difference between when it worked and when it stopped working!
"Can't even rearrange tabs from the tab list any longer"
Limits the listing of open tabs to only the current window. Should list ALL tabs that are open in all windows of Firefox to be able to see them ALL, and search them ALL.
Could you add the option to unload all tabs but current
Available now in 1.0.18. The Mozilla API which supports this feature is only available in FF 58 however. Beta and Nightly users can begin using now.
Wow....1 hour with new Firefox and I was ready to dump it and head to Chrome. Then I found this extension. I'll admit it, I have a problem with keeping tabs open. So without an easy why to manage and access them, using Firefox was painful. This extension, however, has saved the day. I like it so much better than my previous options with the old Firefox. Thanks Kevin Jones!!!
Coming from Tabs Menu where I could scroll through over a hundred tabs easily from a menu-based list, the enforced move to WebExtensions really worried me. This add-on gives me a button I can place in about the same position and provides both a listing of all tabs, plus a quick way to search, close, etc. - more than I've had before! Very thankful for this work and while I realize the Mozilla WebExtension APIs are rather limiting, if you can see a way to perhaps offer a larger size for the pulldown list dimensions and allow for increased spacing above and below list items, that would be ideal. Otherwise, it's fast enough and keeps me productive, great work.
EDIT: Wow, 1.0.18 added a custom width setting for the toolbar button meny and it works great - thank you!
Nice and promising addon in the style of "tree style tab" and other tab managers.
a) add a "F1" feature like TST for opening/closing the list of tabs in the sidebar,
b) add a feature to "size" the list according to user's eyes ..., (tabs height in the list)
c) add an "indent" feature in the list to show relations between tabs (without the parent-child-sibling thing that never works as it should).
In brief, keep it simple and functional !
I like your "forecasts" in the addon future as Firefox v57 will evolve to v. 58 ... So, one knows where things are going ...
Performance has recently decreased presumably from newer version ... previous performance was acceptable and more than satisfactory but recent version is a step in the wrong direction performance wise.
I have a tab habit. Coming from Chrome, where I used QuickTabs, I wanted a replacement that gave me search and a way to find duplicates. So far, I like this better than the Chrome extension.
So happy that you decided to migrate this excellent add-on to a web extension after all! It's already working great, and I'm sure it will only continue to get better. Far better than the Tab Search extension I had been using since upgrading to FF57. Thank you Kevin!
Thanks for your comments. Admittedly a but rough right now, but maybe things will get smoothed out over time.
I just started using All Tabs Helper. I REALLY like the close buttons on the tab list. That is the entire reason I installed it. So nice to be able to close tabs without activating them.
OTOH, the drop down should be able to span the entire FF window if you have that many tabs open. Also there should be an option or default behavior to not list pinned tabs. My pinned tabs almost take up the entire list length leaving me just a space of 5 tabs to scroll thru my 250 open tabs. See the problem?
The length of the drop-down is limited by the browserAction API. Sorry.
However, I have made the pinned tabs "sticky" overlay optional, the default now is that they will scroll with the rest of the list.
This version is not so good. Is there a way to get the previous version?
Thank you very much! 5 Stars for the old version!
Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/all-tabs-helper/versions.
This means also that you would have to either not update to FF 57, run ESR version of FF, or some of the Firefox variants.
OMG! It *was* useful and nice 5-star add-on... Until it switched to new WebExtensions API. Now it become clumsy, slow and dropped some nice features (not add-on developer fault I suppose). There is Russian saying: don't cut a branch you are sitting on... Add-ons was Firefox' branch and devs decided to cut it.
Is there any way to replace the default dropdown tabs list with ATH, like it was pre-WE?
Sorry, no. The new WebExtensions paradigm allows very little in the way of affecting the native UI.
Great Add-on. Unfortunately, because of the changes coming they've had to temporarily disable the Unload Tab feature until it's supported in Firefox 58. Considering myself, and really nobody I work with, is currently planning on upgrading to Firefox 58, I went ahead and downgraded back to ATH 0.2.38 to get the functionality back, and had to disable automatically updating add-ons to get it to stick. It's easy enough to do this, just go to the Version History and click install on the version before the 1.x switch. Incredibly useful tool though, and highly recommended, especially when it's fully functional.
Legalcy ATH is amesome, I hope all needed API will be quickly added by Mozilla ! I want to see ATH in the WebExtension format as good as it was before.
I Love "All Tabs Helper". I've been using it for years. I can't browse the web without this Addon. I am a Firefox user mostly (I Love Firefox, than any other browser). Sometimes I use Chrome too. Which I have installed an almost similar extension/Addon in Chrome named "Tab menu".
But in Firefox this Addon does much more than its similar one in Chrome.
You have also Fixed a bug which showed HTML entities in menu item titles, on your recent Update. That's great!
Only one small notice... If Icons were a little Bigger in the panel would be perfect. (Not the text, just the icons of the webpages).
Excellent Job guys!! Thank you. :-)
But I love the legacy version so I'll downgrade to that.
I always have lots of tabs open. All Tabs Helper (ATH) is really a great way to organize and manage the tabs in Firefox. Great for projects that need multiple tabs open. I have lots of memory in my computer and ATH allows me to have tab groups stored in ATH for recall later. I can have multiple instances of Firefox open with ATH groups open in each. When you close Firefox, (File / Exit), ATH groups are recalled. You can also backup your groups for extra peace of mind you can get back to where you were. It's really a cool add-on.
Considering Firefox's "shifting sands" that developers continually have to navigate, perhaps this will be a stable 'vertical tabs' into the future. Understandably, the help is a little confusing but not so difficult to figure out how to show tabs in a sidebar.
Thanks for the very good work!
I installed it with little faith, as the screenshots in the description did not look functional to me. Wrong: it is awesome. Its design makes very simple to do "tab maintenance" and close what you don't need any more. Very happy to keep tabs under control!
I also love the feature that allows you to go back to the previous tab when you close one.
I am also happy to read that the author is not throwing the towel on providing a WebExtensions version.
Fine thing :)
Perhaps extend it with a field to show following list among each other:
Add more Shortcut-Options:
STRG+Click opens Link in background Tab.
STRG+T opens new Tab in BG oder Foreground.
