Create and manage tab groups in a side-by-side list-view interface, or "Groups Bar" toolbar interface. Single or multi-tab close, bookmark, or move across groups. Search for tabs by title or content in current or all groups. Much more...
About this Add-on
Use "Groups Bar" for easily accessible control over group switching, creation, and moving tabs to different groups. Click on the drop-down arrow of a group tab to open menu which provides more robust features. Groups Bar can be shown/hidden with alt + "b" command (modifier(s) can be changed in Options/Preferences), or by clicking on "Show/Hide Groups Bar" in one of the various UIs.
Right click on any tab in the tabs bar and find "Tab Groups Helper" in the context menu. OR, install toolbar button (View > Toolbars > Customize).
Can switch between groups from drop-down that appears, or open the main interface to more comprehensively manage groups.
Main interface can also be directly opened from main toolbar button, or by pressing alt + "g". (modifier(s) can be changed in Options/Preferences)
NOTE: option is available to use Panorama (FF Native Tab Groups) commands to open TGH, eg, ctrl+shift+"e" (Mac cmd+shift+"e"), or click on Panorama icon in tabs bar or "List all tabs" menu. (Turn on in Options/Preferences)
With main interface panel open, click on "open" menu button to show more groups or create new ones. By right clicking on an individual group column, you can change what is displayed in that column, or you can delete the group that is shown in there.
Tabs can be moved to other groups (or within same group) by dragging and dropping. Multiple tabs can be selected. The same group can be opened in more than one column for ease of moving tabs within the same group where the group is quite large.
Tabs can be closed individually by clicking the "x", or multiple tabs can be selected and closed simultaneously from the context menu for that group's column.
Enter search string in the textbox, and results will appear in a new column at the left. Checking "all" searches all groups, otherwise, only the current group is searched. Tab titles and urls will be searched; checking "content" searches page content in each loaded tab as well. Tabs can be dragged directly from results column to any other group column.
Switch between groups by pressing alt + (0 - 9). (modifier(s) can be changed in Options/Preferences)

Click tab count button in a group column to make that group current
Group title can be edited by clicking in title area for column showing that group

... (note that panel width will never be larger than is necessary to show displayed

Quickly switch to another group from Tab Groups Helper menu in the tabs bar context menu
Hovering over a group title in any menu will preview tabs in that group (this can be turned off in Options/Preferences)
