- by Nick, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5I previously had another plugin that worked like a charm. This one somehow works, but a lot of memory is still being leaked so I have to restart browser often. Didn't have to do it with a previous one. I'm not sure, maybe a new plugin model doesn't allow to do it so good as before, but still, the effect is currently far from perfect.
- by shark_bloody, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5So I tried the add on because of the ability to prevent unloaded tabs to load, I understand that there is no APIs yet, but it does not works as I expected. May I suggest that you take a look at Tab Suspender addon? the way the developer implemented this functionality is way better in my opinion, sadly I can not use this addon due to incompatibilities with other, more crucial, extensions.
Lastly, event do some functions are working in underoptimal conditions, I would have rated it four stars if it was not because it lacks an, in my opinion, key feacture. It can't auto unload tabs.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoNeither Tab Suspender not its successor Auto Tab Discard seem to prevent tabs from being unloaded.
I don't really know when I will have time to continue my work on this, but first I want to wait for bug fixes in Firefox. Some are for example landing in FF 61.
