- Rated 3 out of 5by CodeIcannot, 2 months agoThis is an interesting add-on, that sounds good 'on paper', but has some issues, too. Its functionality is great - you can set up rules by which to auto-close tabs, and also revive them from a backlog, if need be.
However, the user-interface is really clunky, and the add-on comes with really weird default rules. You are more than likely to wipe out ALL your tabs (without warning!) before you figure out how to correctly setup everything. For this reason, I would only recommend trying this out on a completely "blank" browser.
I wish someone would pick up this project and truly make it shine, because at its core, it does a good job.

- Rated 3 out of 5by Ite Ego, 8 months agoImmediate impression isn't great at all -- I had over 800 tabs open, and as soon as I installed this, it immediately closed nearly everything, due to the unfortunate default settings (mere 20 minutes timeout, 5 open tabs).
The extension should obviously start off *Disabled/Paused*, prompt/wait for the user to configure their own settings and enable the extension, before it starts closing any tabs.
(And no, having to re-open hundreds of tabs from the "Corral" is not the same thing.
For one, the tabs don't get restored in the original order.
For another, I have to re-login to a great many sites, demanding attention. All these tabs have also become active, now demanding resources.
For another -- as far as I can tell, the Corral only holds the last 100 tabs closed, because that was the extension's unfortunate default -- the remaining 700+ tabs I had open are just lost.)
- Rated 3 out of 5by spongeyperson, 5 years agoI love this extension, same as love this on Chrome. But there's one main issue i have with the firefox version. When watching fullscreen youtube videos, when the extension decides to close a tab, it takes you out of fullscreen, and this can be incredibly annoying especially when a bunch of tabs close all at once.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoThank you for the review. There's now an associated bug on the GitHub project; I will see if I can figure out how to fix this: https://github.com/tabwrangler/tabwrangler/issues/236
