- by KlausDevWalker, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Such a wonderful extension! Its feature had to come built-in in Firefox! No more open windows just to use a private tab (much needed when you're having login issues). Could you add an option to open containers in the same tab? Anyway, thanks for sharing it with us.
- by vertigo, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5Great concept and I expect it will be very useful, but there are a few things that could be improved:
- It needs the ability to customize the hotkey. I want to use it as the default when opening new tabs, but I can't set it to use Ctrl+T
- It opens the tab to about:logopage, which causes an address isn't valild error and, more importantly, takes the focus off of the location bar. It should open tabs to the same page normal tabs are set to open to (blank in my case) or, if that can't be done for some reason, it should have an option to allow that to be specified.
- I'm not sure if it's possible to change a container on the fly, but if it is, it would be nice to be able to have it automatically switch to a specified container based on domains (e.g. if I open a new tab and go to Facebook, have it automatically switch to a predesignated Facebook container). Edit: Looking at Temporary Containers, it appears this is in fact possible. Also, by providing domain-specific rules, it could be set to, for example, typically open links in new tabs in the same container (as it currently does) but open links on certain domains (e.g. mail.yahoo.com or mail.google.com) in new tabs in new containers.
- An option to open links from other programs in a new container
- An option to delay removal of containers for a specified amount of time
Edit: After further research, I'm now questioning the usefulness of this. It seems that first party isolation (FPI) does essentially the same thing and is more robust than containers, and it can be enabled by simply changing a setting or two in about:config. This makes containers only useful in special circumstances. I'm not knocking this addon, and perhaps some will find it useful, but AFAICT at this point most people that are looking for the functionality it provides would be better suited by FPI.
- by LeDeMon De Ricota, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Perfect substitution for private tab browser with group memory but we need one option in the tabbar icon for open a selected container and no the predetermined like "cg 1"
- by Widmany, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Perfecto, justo loque estaba buscando y funciona de maravilla. Me gustaría que ubierauna opción que guardara la página que estoy logeado y así no tener que logearme cada qeu abro una pestaña. Por lo demas esta genial. Felicidades.
- by Firefox user 12348611, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5A phenomenal way to segregate one-off web site visits and data using Firefox containers. Works as advertised. Also works well with other addons such as Sea Containers, and Tab Center Redux.
- by Firefox user 13487715, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Very good Add-on. I'm using it as a replacement for Private-Tab which isn't working anymore since Firefox 57 with WebExtensions.
It would be great to make the "Alt + c" shortcut configurable. Or at least give some options for the shortcut. I think many users came from Private-Tab where "Strg + Alt + p" is the shortcut we used for years. So it would be cool, to have it open a new container now :)
- by girst, 4 years agoRated 2 out of 5**There is now a well-enough open source alternative at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/temporary-containers/ that I can whole-heartedly recommend instead. **
this addon would be great, if the author
1. had made it available under an open source license
pretty-please release the source code, dear author! you will be praised for it and other people can help improve the code.
if you are worried others will take your code and run with it, use the GNU GPL license - it protects against it. if this is not of concern, use the MPL.
ETA: it's a matter of principle for me.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoYes, I am thinking about this.
But what improvements do you need?
Edit: You know that we have to send the sources for review to the Firefox team. They also check that the obfuscated code was generated from those sources.
- by Thanos Massias, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5If one wants to organize her browsing around a specific set of "persistent" containers ( like the standard Personal, Work, Banking & Shopping ) she can use, for example, 'Firefox Multi-Account Containers' or 'Sea Containers'.
'Containers on the go' takes another approach by creating new non-descript "temporary" containers, beyond the range of the "persistent" ones, named 'CG 1', 'CG 2' etc.
A nice thing is that both 'Firefox Multi-Account Containers' and 'Sea Containers' can "see" and use the
'Containers on the go' containers. 'Firefox Multi-Account Containers' can even edit/delete them.
- by kstev99, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Looking for a replacement for tab groups AND Private Tab. This has some nice features, especially with the addition of the Conex add-on. I wish however that you could create a TRUE Private Tab, such as the add-on "Private Tabs" did.
