doesn't work with palemoon v25 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

would be fine, when it would work with my browser

20141025:
in reply to the dev (thanks for your effort): sorry no; still all tabs show the same content of the at most right tab - I'm using Linux

Edit: I see Linux is still V 3.4 - ok I wait :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4). 

Fixed in Version 3.5. Improved in Version 4.2.

Tile View 3.5 will work with Pale Moon 25.

However, some of the mouse shortcuts did not work. This has been fixed in Tile View 4.2.

Note, with Pale Moon, the "Disable F12 shortcut for Firefox Developer Tools" option will have no effect.

Finally is back Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Light and useful.
A great return!
Thanks.

Именно то, что было мне нужно - без многочисленных функций и настроек. Всё работает. Спасибо разработчику!

*Almost* excactly what I was looking for Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I searched add-ons in hopes of finding a "split view". Tile View was the first one I came across and it works great. Also has lots of options for customizability.

However, one feature I wish it had is the ability to "lock" a tab to one of the tiles. I have a single website/tab (workflowy.com which I highly recommend) that I always want open in a particular tile. If I happen to click on one of the open tabs while that tile is active, that tile shows the tab I clicked on. I would rather "lock" that tile so that when I click a different tab, it opens in one of the "not locked" tiles, even if they weren't the active tile. I request this because I have a "main tile" that I primarily use for browsing whereas my other tile(s) are more like "apps".

Try using Tile Tabs instead

Try using Tile Tabs instead of Tile View. Tile View is essentially a "lite" version of Tile Tabs. The design aim for Tile View is not to over complicate the functions and settings. Tile Tabs is much more powerful and can be configured to work in a similar way to Tile View. Tile Tabs has the ability to lock a tab in a tile, by clicking on the tab lock button in the tile's properties popup. To show the properties popup, either use the Show Properties menu command or press F1.

To make tab selection in Tile Tabs work the same way as in Tile View, you need to enable the following options in the ‘Tabs’ tab of the ‘Tile Tabs Options’ dialog:

- Assign tab to active tile when untiled tab selected
- Assign tab to active tile when tiled tab selected
- Assign another tab when tiled tab closed

Mouseover tile changes the focus Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this extension. A bit tricky to use the first time (where is the tutorial video?) but once you get the idea it's really very efficient.
An annoying thing was that I could not write correctly in the different text boxes or in the address bar of the tiles: each time I tried, the focus of the text box was lost. I realised it was because my mouse cursor was not anymore over the tile I wanted to use. And the focus is linked to the mouse. Therefore when the mouse moves the tile is not active anymore and you can't enter the text.
I finally figured it out.In the Option there is "Show Activate button when mouse over inactive tile" which was selected. Unselect it and the tile focus stays where it is, and is not dependent of the mouse cursor position. I'd suggest to rename this option with something like " activate the tile focus with mouse-over" and add a new option to "display Activate button on the active tile"
Once again, great extension, congrats !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2). 

Fixed in Version 3.3

This problem was actually a bug in Tile View version 3.2. Enabling the "Show Activate button when mouse over inactive tile" option should not have taken the focus away from the active tile when the mouse was moved over an inactive tile. This has been fixed in Tile View version 3.3, which has been submitted to Mozilla for review prior to public release in a few days time.

Maybe it's just the documentation... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Developer referred me from his Tile Tabs, to this, his "simpler" version. I'm sure it is simpler but it's still not simple enough to be able to just install, find a hotkey, and use.
I couldn't figure out how to simply tile my tabs. [I'm from a stupid planet. :) ]

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2). 

Click Tile View button or press F12 to create default layout

The simplest way to create a tiled layout is by clicking on the Tile View button icon.

There are also simple hotkeys to create and show the tiled layout:
- Use F12 to create a new tiled layout. Use F12 again to close the tiled layout.
- Use F9 to toggle between the tiled view and the normal browser view.

The Getting Started section of the homepage documentation has been clarified on these points.

I was using the Tile Tabs, but I decided to use the Tile View
Because I only want to split into two F12, who Tile View is easy to use
Thanks for update

I like this add-on. Will you be updating for Firefox 8.x. which I have installed?

Who would like Tile View updated?

Most users of Tile View have migrated to Tile Tabs.

But there are still a significant number of users of Tile View.

Who would like Tile View updated to Firefox 27?

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ahhh exactly what I was looking for! My biggest complaint is that it gets very complicated with "New Tab" stuff when I want to stop using it. I feel like when I deselect the Tile View button in the toolbar, it should have the effect of the "Close Layout" option of the dropdown menu. Wonderful addon though! Thanks!

This add-on is very nice, but I cannot find the way to display a page in multiple tiles.
When I click a tab which is already in another tile, a blank tab is displayed or page arrangement is corrupted.

This is a great addon, that makes browsing with a widescreen monitor an entirely new experience.
What possibly could further enhance this addon would be the functionality of this add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/milewideback/?src=search for each tile.

Few things left to imprive Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Idea is good, but still buggy.I'm using Firefox Panorama everyday, to group few sites, it is like opening 3-4 Firefoxes in the same time, but with lesser memory usage, and lesser space needed.You shouldn't let Tile View to open tabs from different groups in panorama automatically. I mean when I click accidentally on the icon, but only 1 tab is open in the group, it automatically opens +1 tab from another group. When only 1 tab is open, it should open a BLANK page, or google, or anything else, but please do NOT mess up the panorama groups. In this way it is very hard and confusing, to make it like it was before.

+1) Not using Tile View 24/7, only when I need 2 tabs in the same time. And it can be really annoying, when trying to turn OFF (close layout), by clicking on the toolbar icon, and the icon became inactive, but when I restart FF, it opens it again, and I have to press F12 (or close layout) to turn it off again. It would be a cleaner, and better way to CLOSE layout on clicking on the icon. Since I can reopen tileview with 1 click on icon after closing...why not?

I'm a long time fan of tile tabs and while testing this spiritual successorI was pleasantly surprised.

The switching is quick and versa"tile" (haha...shoot me)


-I miss the simple blue border around the favicon from tile tabs. I sometimes tile app tabs AND i now use the favicon add-on (every tab is only a favicon) and I have NO visual lead on which tabs are tiled. could you please change that? it was a cleaner way to show what was tiled.

-It can be a bit disconcerting when you travel to another tabgroup (panorama) that the tiles stay ,active and while clicking left and right tab you automatically change tabgroups. I love that now;but a warning might be in place,I feared I had lost a lot of my tabs. And maybe a function that every tabgroup has it's own tiles?

Oh and I just found that if you delete a tab on far right with 'assign existing tab from right" that you immediatly acces other groups in panorama. Very disorienting,please let me deactivate this behaviour. (for now I set in on "assign to left" for that reason,but I would like it differently)

EDIT: I just found that "assign to left " also gets this behaviour.

-I know you can press F12 to initiate a layout,but I prefer to drag and drop all the time. I cannot initiate a layout by dragging anymore,which I found better.

-Shortcut for untile tab,maybe even untile all tabs.

-Maybe make an already tiled tab unclickable or prevent it from loading in the other tile? Because now if you click it it gets switched around to the tab with the selection. This can be very disorienting (again).

Ofcourse these are just my findings,but if these issues could be resolved this would make it so much better

"I suppose many people want to browse website and meanwhile watch youtube video"

The best addon for that is PopVideo (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/popvideo/)
... 10x better than splitting the browser frame, can also have alwaysOnTop enabled on the popout. Of course it just pops the video, so if you still want to read youtube comments then yeah Tile View.

I suppose many people want to browse website and meanwhile watch youtube video . This is the add-on that we need. Thank for the responsible author's effort, it becomes very flexible, fast and reiliable. It is totally compatible to one's browsing habit under tiled view. Currently most people are using wide screen monitors but many websits still don't switch to wide-screen view so it leaves large blank in the window. By using tiled view you can fully utlize the entire wide-screen.

I think this is a great concept. There do need to be improvements, which I'm sure are coming along.

Some issues with page layout, such as youtube, but I'm not sure that can be helped, considering the size adjustment.

Also, dragging tiles around would be awesome.

And, though this might be the hardest part, it would be amazing if each tab performed like something in Mozilla Home Dash, with their own miniature/disappearing title bar, etc, but still running in the same overall instance of firefox. Just something to think about.

Great job so far!

Better functionality Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It could use Split Browser's arrows instead of a toolbar button, seeing as pressing a button and THEN having a tile is less useful than drag/dropping a link on a hotspot marked by a transparent, fade-in arrow. Pull this off and I'm all in!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5). 

Already implemented!

Tile View already has the ability to drag-and-drop a link, bookmark or tab to open in a new tile. Just use Ctrl+Drag.
