Rated 4.5 out of 5
4.5 Stars out of 5
- by Firefox user 15994070, 5 months agoRated 2 out of 5This extension does not appear to support starting Firefox with the command line parameters. E.g. I have created Windows shortcuts like 'Firefox -P "Profile1"' and 'Firefox -P "Profile2" etc. When I open Firefox with these shortcuts, FireTitle shows "New Window" and does not show the Profile name I used to launch it. Bummer because this is what I was looking for...it's a PITA to always go to Profile Manage in FF and launch a new profile from there.
- by syldub, 8 months agoRated 5 out of 5Really awesome extension!!
It is the only extension I found that allows setting a custom name for each Firefox window of the profile.
It does lack some patterns that could be used for Keepass (URL hosntame, protocol and port)... Please could you implement them?
- by Firefox user 13577921, 9 months agoRated 5 out of 5Excellent add-on, couldn't live with it! On windows set the 'combine' option on the taskbar to 'never' so you can always see the window title, this means you can directly open your named window at any time.
Shame it's limited by the web extension support but it still works really well overall.
- by Firefox user 15219656, a year agoRated 5 out of 5For me, this plugin is a must have! In the windows taskbar, disable grouping and show app titles and you can instantly go to the window you need. 👌
It's a shame firefox limits it from being as good as it could be, but the devs have done a good job getting as much as possible working from the original version.
- by Firefox user 13490805, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Absolutely perfect. My 20+ windows each with 1 to 70 tabs reopen smoothly after any sleep or crash. Wonder why Mozilla call it "obsolete'. Please don't kill this useful app !
- by David von Oheimb, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thank you for providing this extension - works pretty well!
Just one thing: it does not show the title on new tabs - there only the default title "Mozilla Firefox" is shown. Can you improve this?
- by piecevcake, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5GOOD crap!! Indispensible when running/comparing multiple profiles, identifies the profiles as well as each window in them, and the loaded tabs number is VERY useful.
No problems with FF restart or session restore. All window names are retained.
1. the "window's name" was a mystery until I figured out you set it in each window by clicking the toolbar button.
2. would be nice if could put items after the tab name
3. would be useful to be able to align the title left.
4. title doesnt show if new tab or a local file is active (but appears if local file tab is renamed, and does show for moz pages! New tabs still a year later stuff up most addons, FF Devs should borrow your title for their work)
5. *users need to select "show the titlebar" in FF customise options
Thanks and keep up the great work. :-)
- by Firefox user 14221405, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5Great functionality, but slows my firefox down massively. But my FF session might be an edge case with 20 open windows, one of them with 2500 tabs :D
- by Firefox user 14218530, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5Unfortunately it does not survive a restart and session restore with multiple windows, which renders it pretty useless. (At least using the MySessions add-on. Not sure about the built in FF session restore. But as that is not reliable, I need an additional add-on. May also be that MySessions is crap, will probably try something else here. That's why it's still 3 stars.). This worked with the old FireTitle and the session manager plugins I was using, the Mozilla has chosen to break :(
Don't show separator if there is no title set.
- by Firefox user 13270182, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5So far so good, but it has only been half a day so far. If you could change the Mac shortcut to something that doens't trigger Preferences, it would be perfect!
- by Firefox user 13455483, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5A good start but FF limitations are affecting it. Howver, letting the Mac variant default to cmd+, (since cmd+; apparently isn't assignable?) is bad and should have been replaced by almost anything else, namely a setting to allow the USER to pick. But the worst shortcoming seems to be that it doesn't save your window titles upon closing Firefox! So when you restart, you have a bunch of windows with the same default names, making it useless. And it can be a pain to go through them all and re-set them properly. Please find a way to store the windows names if FF closes or crashes!
Developer responseposted 2 years agoHi, thank you for your comment. I tried to fix the "names forgotten after closing firefox" bug. However, since I can't reproduce it, I'm not sure it is. Could you try again and tell me? Thanks.
- by Rogério, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5It does not work yet, but I'm waiting...
Please, could you at least fix the shortcut to preferences? In mac, COMMAND+, is the system wide Application Preferences. You shouldn't use it for Crappy Firetitle. It broke the Firefox Preferences...
Developer responseposted 2 years agoAw, sorry for the bad shortcut (and the long delay). It seems that Command+; is available in new versions of the API. I'll revert back the shortcut to Command+; in version 0.1.8.
