Rated 2.7 out of 5
2.7 Stars out of 5
- by Firefox user 13577323, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5Okay, I understand the changes. I still give it one star. I would give a half a star if possible. This add-on sucks. Opening multiple windows is NOT a good solution for the loss of the ability to actually tile tabs.
I give Firefox "Quantum" one-half star as well. Who gives a rip what Google and Chrome do? I use Firefox because I don't like Chrome. Mozilla; why emulate a browser you are competing with? Shame on you. Regain your honor and independent identity. Either put the silly thing back the way it was or fix the currently crummy product. When you want to open a new tab, please don't open a new separate window.
- by Neuntoter, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5I understand the limitations imposed by the new Firefox, and I wish others would understand what they are rating before throwing out 1 star reviews.
I have to however rate it at 1 star. At this point I think you are doing all you can, by moving a tab into a new window. My issue is that your methodology is highly flawed for any reasonable work flow or use case. You should really simplify the operation. Just give the option to tile the first tab as horizontal or vertical. From there you can keep adding them to the screen.
Etc.. Or you could launch the tile by direction.
M(Left)->1 | 1(Up)->2 | M(Up)->3 | 2(Right)->4 = Error = Slot Full
If you can't control where the windows go or move them after launch, then just cut out all this broken stuff and branch 1 window left or right or up or down. I can all but guarantee that the most used feature is moving 1 tab side by side for a comparison. When the new API gets more mature go back and add features, but for now make it work in a logical way.
I think the thing that does it in for me is that I say I want two tiles, and the add-on creates three. Just create 1 new window with the tab I have selected. This lets you control what 2 tabs you want because you can switch around in the main window.
- by Magister Sexta, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Has the same if not less functionality as just placing individual windows beside each other. I am a person with many tabs, and it would be nice if at least one of the windows created had the majority of my tabs on it. Instead I get two tiles, each one with a single tab on it, and another window full of my other tabs behind them. If it gets fixed to be in one window I'll give it a try, until then two stars is all I can give it.
- by Firefox user 13532460, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5It is not the same as the old Tile Tabs extension. However, it's the best we have in the new Firefox Web Extensions system.
It does the basic job of showing two tiles side-by-side, and then restoring them to one window when you are done.
Use Ctrl-Shift-UpArrow to jump to a new tiled layout. Use Ctrl-Shift-DownArrow to close the layout and get back to one window.
Good job to the developers for giving us back some of the functionality we lost when Firefox killed the old Tile Tabs extension.
- by Firefox user 11571316, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Мне нравится. Стал работать быстрее. На Chrome есть аналогичное дополнение и работает оно чуть быстрее. Надеюсь и вы улучшите скорость либо ее улучшит firefox)))
- by C Perkins, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5This rating is more of a statement about the new Firefox than it is this add-on, however the end result must be an honest rating of the overall effectiveness and usefulness. The old Tile Tabs was truly useful, whereas this version wastes screen space and is not much more useful than Windows 10 windows snap behavior.
- by Firefox user 13524991, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5i like the old version. this is just to complicated and i don't understand why it's being split from windows instead inside the window itself. it's stupid. i don't want this extension no more.
- by Firefox user 13504972, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Has one major problem, that on separating the "new" tile/s they are also lost from the original set of tabs. It has a long way to go to be half as good as the original.
- by Quirio22 , 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5J'aurais mis 5 à l'ancienne version ! Tile Tabs...
L'affichage de deux onglets contigus partageant l'écran d'un double clic me manque énormément. (l'anglais n'est pas mon fort !)
- by Firefox user 13494829, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5i understand this thing works different due to new Firefox v57, but still this is not working similar to previous version.
i cant save a layout. when i want to create a layout on second screen i use, this addon only created a tiled view on my main screen which i dont need. long way to go before it reaches same user friendly version as the previous version
- by Firefox user 13480072, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5I loved the previous version of this extension as I can have multiple windows within a single tab. It saves window space and less actual windows open.
But this... is not useful at all. It does not have the functionality that I need nor want. I understand that this is because of Mozilla's updates... it's still disheartening.
I implore the developer of this extension to please find a way to create a new one that has the functionality of the previous version.
I rate this extension as a one.
