- by Aaron, 7 months agoRated 2 out of 5I grabbed this addon when I saw FF constantly eating up bandwidth when I'm not using it. The good is that this addon solved that issue. The bad is that the timer does not reset itself to the user-defined interval, so the timer is a pointless feature. The ugly is that disabling the addon triggers every tab to reload; that simply should not happen.
Almost but not quite usable.
EDIT: Was looking for a builtin FF setting but instead found Auto Tab Discard. It offers more options and just works.
- by Firefox user 14784944, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5I set the timer but it doesn't seem to work. I set for 5 minutes but no tabs go to sleep. It only works if I set it for 0 minutes, but then all my tabs are put to sleep immediately and I didn't want that. I'm using Firefox for Ubuntu Linux (latest version 66.0.3).
