Great addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really nice app, especially when you have 80 tabs in 5/6 groups. Only recommendation - could you provide option to remove the menus. I am perfectly fine with the option "add menu to panorama button" option. Thanks a lot.

Does exactly what I need. This should be standard in Firefox.

Did not find problems in normal use. But I did not test everything that might be possible.

If I could assign shortcut keys so that I can jump directly to a certain group this would be great.

The keys ctrl + ` in Firefox itself is very poor since you just can go from one group to the next or with shift plus the keys above back again.

Very useful addon. A few glitches though:

- No matter what I choose in the addon options, I cannot remove the extra menu (intention is to only add a drop-down to the panorama button).

Of course, if I could disable it, I wouldn't care for the rest of the glitches (and I wouldn't have noticed them in the first place either), but here it goes...

- Selecting the option to *only* show group count shows an empty bracket next to the button name. Like so: "Tab Groups ()"

- Selecting to show *only* the tabs count shows an unnecessary forthslash in the next to the count. Like so: "Tab Groups (15/)". This might be required for when showing both tab count and group count, but not when there's only one of them shown.

- When starting up firefox the menu count on the new menu shows empty until I click on the panorama button drop-down. Shouldn't it be populated with the count(s)?

Interfering with compact menu Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Whenever I use this product to switch to a different tab group, the compact menu loses its default menu items.

Useful add on. It would be nice if i could add tab groups menu to the mouse menu. That way i could right click with mouse and go to any page i like. I'm using menu editor add on, but i can't achieve that.

A very useful add-on.

Just noticed a minor bug recently. I am using Session Manager 0.7.9 together with this add-on. I have these two options (among a few others) enabled:
- Add menu to panorama button
- Replace panorama button

With the Session Manager add-on enabled, I noticed just recently that the TabGroups Menu add-on does not start up (i.e. no drop-down button showing-up next to the panorama button) when I launch Firefox (was using 12, now 13). I had to disable and re-enable the TabGroups Menu add-on to get it working.

If I disable the Session Manager add-on, the TabGroups Menu add-on works as expected.

Further testing show that when I have the following settings enabled in the Session Manager, it interferes with the TabGroups Menu add-on:
- Startup & Shutdown section
- Prompt for a session
- Pre-select previous session

It looks like whenever the Session Manager dialog box is displayed at the beginning, prompting to select a session, the TabGroups Menu stopped working until a disable/re-enable of the add-on is performed. If I choose use the "Select Session" option and set to auto-load a session, i.e. no dialog box appeared, the TabGroups Menu add-on started without any issue.

Works up to FX 15 (Aurora atm), Fails on FX 16 due to Theme changes Rated 5 out of 5 stars

version 0.9.1 works just fine under Firefox 15, (now Aurora) but in
FX 16 due to the Australis theme (see bug 732583 in bmo) the Menu entries as well as the functionality on the TabGroup Button is missing. A update would be nice.

Follow-up question Rated 5 out of 5 stars

(I see no Forum or Support for this add-on, so it seems we have to communicate via this Review medium!)

You said:
2. You can install this version of nightly tester tools to reenable showing the group name to the title from this page

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=726560

OK, I'm not a programmer/techie/developer, so I expect this has an obvious answer to someone versed in these things. I've installed the 'Nightly Tester' but how do I now install the version of TabGroups that shows the group in the title please?

EDIT: Hmm - it appears that my original review has now disapeared ;-(

Hi,

The nightly tester addon enables you to add the active group name to the title, so you do not need tabgroups menu to do it. Check the nightly tester addon options.

For support please use the github issue tracker

How it should be Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THIS is what they should have done from the start. Nice and simple.

On thing I'd like to know: The panorama button menu and the menu bar menu seem to work differently. The panorama button one has additional markups to indicate active tabgroup and inactive tabs. Is this not possible in the menu bar?

What I'd like to have, would be an option to give names to tab groups created by moving a tab to a new tab group right away, since that is the way I create most of my tab groups and unnamed tab groubs are terrible to handle.
Maybe one could also add an option to replace the tab group entry in the tab dropdown menu with your group menu as well, to save additional space.

This is very good, like a bunch of other ppl I agree that with this ext 'Panorama' actually becomes usable.
One thing: pls add an option to remove the new menu in the Menu Bar completely, so that the only way to access TabGroup is via the Panorama button.

The icon here cannot display in my addon manager.
Please fix the url.
Suggestion: Right click on the panorama button to show the dropdown menu so that the dropdown button can be omitted.
Thanks.

Disapointed Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Tabgroups menu is a nice and usefull tool but... I'm really, really angry cause I had sorted all my bookmaks and Tabgroups menu don't look at an existing folder with the same name when you "bookmark group" from his menu. Result: A big folder with thousands of bookmarks hard sorted for hours and hours... deleted and replaced by one with same name from a group, without any warning, all my work to do again from a backup. I can't understand how a so stupid case can be forgotten when a tools is designed !!!!!!!!!!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1-signed). 

It doesn't replace or delete any folder. It creates a new bookmark folder. It existing folder already exists, there will be two folders with the same name. Firefox allows bookmarks folder with duplicate names.

Seriously, adding a new (anonymous) group should be way faster/easier for this to be actually usable

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Quite the contrary, the concept of this extension is that every groups should have a name. If you want anonymous group, then this extension is not for you.

I love this addon, but I found a little problem: open menu on mouse over doesn't work, I'm using v0.9 on win7 and FF 9.0 beta.

Thanks!

Why not make an icon as well? I have my menu disabled to save space. I'd rather use this addon in my toolbar

Add the panorama button to your toolbar then check the extension options.

my new favorite firefox addon!

Kind words, kind words... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the only tabgroups manager that is actually USABLE (without this plugin, it is easier to switch between 20 windows than hassle with panorama... it is an awful invention, without any usable alternative way to handle groups). So only kind words this add-on can receive. Kindest words.

Using panorama is like when you have hands and legs cut off and you have to writhe for your life with the limb that is not yet cut off. IMPOSSIBRU!

I have always couple of hundred permanent tabs open. And couple of hundreds or more "temporary tabs"...
So imagine my frustration ... without this add-on (it is imaginobru!)

And this add-on is quite keyboard friendly... Well, maybe it needs "move current tab to" menu item for consistency and speed... nothing, that can't be improved at the end of the day. Why?

This is actually the reason why I came here in the first place. I came here To Complain. About unusable FF. Can you, dear developer, fix the issue --> FF's default "Move to Group" in tab context menu is unsorted!

It neeeeeeeds to be sorted. I really do not understand what is in the minds of the "Original FF" developers.
But original "Move to Group" is the fastest way to move tabs (less clicks).

So what else... "Options" should be also visible in Add-ons Manager :)

Tips for others: excellent companion for this add-on is Multiple Tab Handler.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multiple-tab-handler/

Thou, in menus you can select multiple tabs with "ctrl-click" and move them to new groups (sorted list!), I'd say it usually better to use features that Multiple Tab Handler provides - select tab ranges (shif-click) - and move those ranges through... unsorted menu :(

Use them both and ... and there will be much rejoicing! YAY!

TabGroup Bar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Is there a possibility to make the TabGroups appear in a (new) bar, instead of drop-down menu?
Something like in the outdated TabGroupsManager.
That would be really awesome.

You should better ask the developer of pano (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pano/) for that because it'd much be easier to be implemented in that extension.

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. It makes the tab groups functionality usable. Without this, tab groups were like driving a car with three wheels (I hate the panorama view). I completed it with the 'Customizable Shortcuts' add-on to be able to switch groups with the Ctrl+Tab shortcut.
