It was once an essential addon, one of the first I would install everywhere. Now with 700 tabs it makes Firefox veeeeeery long to start (we are talking about minutes, and that's on a SSD) and consume 2GB RAM right from the start; after I disabled it, with the same 700 tabs FF started in under 10 seconds and consumes 780MB RAM. That was also the case with 300 tabs, just not that bad. Would never thought this addon made such a huge difference without a need to find a WebExtension one before FF 57 arrives. Have to replace. Hope it comes back as a WebExtension.
Please update for FF57
Thanks for addon. Please add FF57 support.
For the second time happened that after updating Firefox cards (tab english?) are in another place and does not remember history card. Generally the plug is excellent. Good job.
It would be great to see this option - mark unloaded tabs by shading to gray.
Like in BarTab.
It will stop working with upcoming Firefox 57 Beta.
This amazing addon has no proper alternative.
so ...it yes suspend but ... if only it could unsuspend ...no it deletes page ...page goes blank and cannot be returned if suspend is kept for more than 24 hours , have tried reinstall this addon, FF is up to date as well ... suspended page just goes into page that never existed upon revisiting tab
I like this add-on please convert this Legacy add-on to Web Extensions. Thank you
Don't forget to give webextension compatibility to this wonderfull addon!!!
Saves tonnes of memory by auto suspending tabs not in use for a particular duration. Other such addons have issues as the suspended tab is lost on restart, meaning sessions manager does not recognize the suspended tab. However this addon works flawlessly and suspended tabs are there on restart.
Best tab suspender!
Doesn't work in Nightly
Nice, easy and lightweight addon. There's still room for it to get better : unsuspend tab with mouse click option, a background displaying the supended status of the tab, etc etc etc
- Far better approach to do its jobs.
- Well thought configurable options.
Позволяет экономить ресурсы машины. Как следствие на дольше хватает заряда аккумулятора и другим приложениям остаётся больше ресурсов.
I have a window always open with about 25 tabs for reference (Google Books... and they consume a lot of memory). 'Suspend all other tabs'... Great! Quickly and easily done. But why the hell is there no 'Resume all other tabs'? I'm not going to mess about 'resuming' each tab every time I want access the tabs in that particular window.
I usually have over 50+ tabs open for my work. This was causing my FireFox to choke & crash constantly. YouTube pages were especially resource-hogging.
The thing is, I only usually work with around 10 tabs at a time. The others are open & sorted for special use cases (Wiki's, Dictionaries, Reference Guides etc.).
With this add-on, I can suspend the tabs I don't currently need. There are a number of methods.
One method of suspending tabs is to right click tab & suspend an individual tab OR suspend all other tabs.
Another method is to set program to automatically suspend tabs after a time period of inactivity. This is actually a brilliant option. In my extreme usage, I would notice that FireFox would freeze up or crash if I left it alone for a few hours. With this option, I can preserve system resources & not have to re-open session all over again.
In my first use, I saw FireFox drop from 2.4 gb+ memory usage to 1.4 gb. Everything is running smoother. So there are real results to using this add-on.
Also, very important to note. I use another add-on called "Session Manager" regularly. I was worried that this add-on would make suspended tabs invisible to the "Session Manager" save tool. I am very happy to report that "Session Manager" can see ALL tabs (even the suspended ones) when saving. So you won't miss anything.
Another impressive thing I noticed. I suspended a tab that had the Add-On page loaded. But in my Add-On page, I had navigated to the "More Information" section of an installed add-on. If you notice, the URL in the Add-On's section always remains the same...no matter where you travel. So there is a risk that when tab is un-suspended, it will simply re-load the URL in the address bar...forgetting actual location. I was very happy to see that un-supending the tab loaded the exact place I had left off (More Information section). It didn't just re-load the generic URL in the address bar.
- "Resume" context menu options should match "Suspend" options. For example, if there is a "Suspend all other tabs"...there should also be a "Resume all other tabs".
- There needs to be a "Resume all other tabs" context menu option. Currently, user has to click on every single tab if he needs entire browsing session active after suspension. This is very time-consuming when there are 50+ tabs that need to be clicked to be resumed.
- Context menu that reflect directional needs. For example "Resume/Suspend...all tabs to the left" & Resume/Suspend...all tabs to the right". If you sort and organize your tabs, such an option would make it much easier to resume/suspend tabs.
can i add filter for some web sites(tabs) that i do not want to suspend?
This unloads one tab only and does not stops scripts in background pages?
Perhaps you could add the option to automatically freeze background Tabs at once, not unload them, to save CPU-Time? :)
Simple, but great functionality! Thank you for this.
Works with Tree Style Tab better than UnloadTab but you can't see which tabs are unloaded! I expect Piro The Amazing will fix that soon though :)
It works pretty well, the only thing I want to see in the future releases is highlighting suspended tabs like in Tab Suspender for Chrome.
Thanks for this nice addon.
Does the job well.
