- by Ruben, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This is so useful for me - having different 'hats' and organisations I do work for I use it every day. Also for testing websites with different user-roles, and for general privacy, its invaluable. The multi-account container tool by itself doesn't cut it because inevitably open tabs in the wrong account. One improvement - if it worked on a blank tab - ie when you first open a new tab, it could already reload in the profile you want, then I could remove the multi-account button all together, that would be nice.

Developer responseposted 3 years agoDue to limitations on what add-ons are allowed to do related to web security, tabs can't actually change containers. This add-on is a work around this limitation: it's not changing the tab, but rather duplicating the tab into a new one that comes inside a container. It's therefore inevitable for it to reload the page and also lose the tab's history.

- by Matt, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I haven't used containers much, but I would like to, and FF Quantum as-is just doesn't suffice. As a web designer, Reddit moderator, and as a serious power user, sometimes I need to access pages without being logged into my main accounts, or preview CSS/layout changes, and even work on multiple accounts at a time. This plugin makes it far easier to utilize Containers as they should be.

- by grahamperrin, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrxubHeiIfw features use of Switch Container to send a page to a container, then de-contain the page.
Also in the screen recording: experimental Conex 0.0.66 with a preference to disallow movement.
The disallowance in Conex does not disallow use of Switch Container. The two extensions complement each other very nicely …
