I like it! I was using Tab Snooze in Chrome before, happy to find out the same exists for Firefox! The only thing I'm missing is a recurring option. There are certain tabs I want to open every day at a given time. Would love to see that added.
Being able to schedule a tab to launch automatically at a more convenient time (evening if entertainment related web content or an important purchase to be made close to someone's birthday, etc), is one of the best advances in browser technology in the last 10 years. Great idea !!
I ran into one technical thing I thought I should mention. The "Snooze Until" menu, which drops from the "Alarm Bell/Snooze Tab Until ..." icon on the main firefox toolbar/icon menu when the icon is clicked appears to be susceptible to behavioral changes (the snooze menu either doesn't appear or flashes then disappears), if it's appearance overlaps certain web content. This behavior is more apparent if the "Snooze Tab until ..." menu appears over another website's "Main Menu" or a Flash content web element.
My "workaround" for this behavior so far has been to either scroll down so that the "Snooze Tab Until ..." appears over a less content-dense area of the web page. The other interesting "workaround" is to zoom the page out so that all the content is temporarily smaller.
Don't know if anyone else has experienced this or if this just an overloaded firefox instance.
Like I said, i absolutely love Snooze Tabs and a minor bug is certainly not going to stop me from using it, but I did want to at least mention the behavior.
I was using the Snooze Tabs add-on that was part of the Firefox Test Pilot, but is now an official add-on. I PREFER this add-on over the other because
1. You are able to define 1-6 hours for the "LATER" button in the options. This is very beneficial if you need to snooze a tab for six hrs, such as a sweepstakes entry.
2. You can manage the snoozed tabs from the Firefox Sidebar, something that wasn't available in the Mozilla Test Pilot version.
I really wish that there was a PRESET button for 24 hours or that it had the ability to create new presets (6HR, 12 HR etc.).
I do agree with another user that the "Pick Date and Time" screen is primitive and needs some work. It would be nice if at least the date were filled in and you could change it if needed with a dropdown box. Other than that. wonderful add-on. Many thanks to the developer.
Hi, would it be possible to add periodic functions and assigned the date such that the tab will come out periodically or at my desired date? I used to use snoozed tabs on chrome, which is very well designed. Currently I changed my browser from Chrome to Firefox and wish to have a same/similar extension. I am looking forward to seeing improvement on this extension.
I like the idea of this add-on a lot, but when snoozed tabs woke up, they often either woke up repeatedly (even though I only snoozed them once), or many duplicates of the same tab would wake up at once (sometimes close to 10 tabs with the same snoozed webpage).
Given 3 stars before even testing 'cause the developer's responding to negative experiences and resolving the issues. Gonna try it out now to hopefully come back and rate 5star.
Edit: It works and does what it promotes as far as I can see. Four stars because there's a few little itsy bitsy features I could imagine and it's not just as pretty and convenient as its Chrome counterpart. So, I keep one star to upgrade some day when the tool's grown.
Hi Bridget, Thanks a lot for trying out this add-on and reporting the bug. Currently, the API which I use to snooze tabs (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/alarms) clears all the data when the browser is closed. Hence, I decided to release a new version and store the snoozed tabs and reload them when browser restarts. However, the data will not be synced between devices.
I have fixed the bug and released a new version (0.0.4) and submitted it for review. If you have any thoughts/feedback/suggestions on the add-on you can either send a mail or reply to this comment.
Hi James, Thanks a lot for trying out this add-on and reporting the bug. I have fixed the bug and released a new version (0.0.3) and submitted it for review. If you have any thoughts/feedback/suggestions on the add-on you can either send a mail or reply to this comment.
