- Rated 1 out of 5by Becky Raymond, 2 years agoI was expecting multiple tabs tiled into a single window, not multiple browser windows all over my desktop each with a toolbar that eats up space.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 16838167, 3 years agoIt just opens tabs in separate windows and aligns them. My window manager can do that.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoYes, but a window manager won't support synchronized scrolling in multiple tabs, or hiding the windows toolbars to increase the viewable page area, or returning the tabs to the original parent window,
- Rated 1 out of 5by NetworkViking, 5 years agoTile Tabs was ruined the moment it began opening "multiple tabs" by way of opening the additional tabs in SEPARATE WINDOWS.
The ONLY reason ANYONE would look for an extension such as this one is to do EXACTLY what it used to do. We want to minimize the number of windows we have open BUT also be able to view multiple sites - side by side - for comparison and quick use of information from one tab into the other without switching.
Until this function is once again usable for that EXACT functionality, this extension is utterly useless.
Either commit to fixing that functionality or please retire this add-on.Using the new WebExtensions API's, it is not possible to display multiple tabs simultaneously within the same browser window. This is why Tile Tabs WE has to move each tiled tab into a separate window.
Reasons why you might want to use Tile Tabs WE:
• To compare multiple web pages side-by-side.
• To synchronize scroll multiple web pages side-by-side.
• To open links from one tab in adjacent existing tabs.
• To save tiled layouts which can be re-opened for future use.
Tile Pages WE has just been released and displays multiple web pages in a single browser window!
- Rated 1 out of 5by Elod, 5 years agoi was using the version for firefox 56 and was forced now to update firefox. The newest version that is compatible now is just useless and annoying ...
Cons: -used to be simple and just tile as many tabs as it was selected in the way you wanted
-used to be simple and you could just open new tabs with Shift + arrow in the direction you wanted
-used to have only one menubar for all
-now you have a gazillion firefox windows with extra bar on top
-sometimes it works sometimes you can just click it 10 times and nothing happens
Pros: -none so far !Tile Tabs WE does work a little differently to the original Tile Tabs WE, and is not as slick as the original Tile Tabs, but it still meets the same objectives.
- You can still tile as many tabs as you want, either using the pre-defined layouts, or saved custom layouts, or tiling tabs individually (using the Tile Tab or Add Tile menu commands).
- You can simply create a tiled layout by clicking on the toolbar button or by using the Alt+Shift+Up keyboard shortcut.
- You can hide the toolbars in the tiled windows using the Toggle Toolbars menu command or the Alt+Shift+Right keyboard shortcut.
Version 11.1, which has just been released, adds two new features:
- You can select multiple tabs before clicking on the toolbar button to create a layout with just those tiles.
- You can right-click on a tab button and select Tile Tab > Direction to create a layout.
- Rated 1 out of 5by NextGenThemes, 5 years agoI understand that the limitation of WE sucks but I fail to understand why the extension creates TWO new windows with each having one tab when I try to split a specific tab. The main window with all my tabs should just be left when I pick out a tab to display right. But instead my main window with all the tabs will go into the background while 2 new windows are being created. I think its counter intuitive and annoying. I really do not get why anyone would want that behavior.
The "Merge all Windows" extension comes in handy when messing arround with this BTW.Early versions of Tile Tabs WE retained the original window as the first tile in the the tiled layout, but this design had several problems. For example, if the user used the Toggle Toolbar command, then all of the tabs in the original window (except for the selected tab) would be lost.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 14048081, 6 years agoTerrible. At least give us the option to revert back to the old tiles page otherwise you're going to have a lot of people installing older versions of Firefox for this functionality.
Developer responseposted 6 years agoThere is very little that the old Tile Tabs could do, that Tile Tabs WE cannot do. The main difference is that the old Tile Tabs tiled tabs in the same window, whereas Tile Tabs WE tiles tabs in separate windows. Features such as opening links in a different tab, synchronized scrolling of tabs, and resizing adjacent tabs are still available in Tile Tabs WE.
The new WebExtensions API's introduced with Firefox 57 must now be used by all add-ons and do not support displaying multiple tabs in the same browser window.
