- by jesus2099, 5 months agoRated 3 out of 5It's super great but I have an issue now on Linux Firefox 91. Duplicate Tabs requires Containers, that I deactivate. Containers, when activated for Duplicate Tabs, hinder my right-click, C keyboard shortcut to quickly copy URL of a link, which I need every 5 minutes. I had to deactivate this extension, sadly...
- by Lemons22, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5It works OK, but it is very slow. I'm a tab hoarder and the addon showed nearly 800 duplicate tabs when I first downloaded it. I thought it would be a simple matter of hitting the "Close all duplicate tabs" button to get rid of the tabs, but nope! That crashed Firefox. Not only that, but when I restarted not a single duplicate tab had been dealt with...so either the process removes them all or it just crashes and removes none of them. Great.
So then I started removing the duplicates one by one, which is a time consuming process considering the addon lags for a good 2-3 seconds when closing each tab. Even attempting to quickly move through the list by simply going down and rapidly clicking the x's doesn't speed it up...it's just slow. I finally just made a mouse macro that clicked through them for me using a program called Mouse Recorder Premium...for those without such a program this part would have sucked!
So I pared the list down to 500. As an experiment I wanted to see if the addon would handle 500. Nope. Crashed again, but this time it also decided to crash Firefox every single time I tried to restart it as well...great! I disabled the addon after a few crashes and FF was able to start again. When I re-enabled the addon it was clear not a single tab had been removed and I still had 500.
Finally, I ran my macro a bit more and got it down to 150 (I actually wanted to stop at 250 and see if it would handle that but I got distract and the macro had already ran it down to 150 when I check it again...oh well). Now here's the reason why I didn't just rate this thing 1 star. It actually dealt with the 150 tabs pretty easily. Click the button and POOF they're gone. So I would say for the average user this addon will work quite the treat, but if you're someone like me that has a massive duplicate tab problem, well, expect to put in some work clicking those little x's and waiting.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoThanks for the review and the tests.
I though I was mad with my 100 opened tabs but it seems to be nothing. :)
To solve this I think I'll need to store more tabs information instead of query Firefox.
- by Firefox user 13317020, 5 years agoRated 3 out of 5Great plugin, but the permissions could be chosen more carefully.
I tried to run it without "webRequest", "webRequestBlocking", "" and it seems to work well.
(I looked into the code and found nothing fishy)
Developer responseposted 5 years agothanks for the report, you are right I can remove some permissions not needed anymore (there are others you have not listed that can also be removed).
I'll push the code in Github so you'll be able to look at the code more easily. :)
Anyway, I'm not sure it's worth three stars for that.
