Alternative side-by-side interface for Firefox Panorama (Tab Groups)
LINUX CAVEAT: Due to Firefox bug 956356
, the management panel will only work properly with Firefox in fullscreen mode on Linux.
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".
NOTE: option now 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).
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
width of panel by dragging right-hand edge
... (note that panel width will never be larger than is necessary to show displayed
... groups. As more groups are displayed it will expand as needed until reaching
... maximum width setting)
Set column widths by dragging slider at bottom of the panel
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)
