Doesn't save memory or reload the page it unloaded Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm using up to 1gb memory now, and when I load a tab that was unloaded, it goes back to the first page that was on the tab, not the page that was up when the tab was unloaded

Works well

Keeps eating memory. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

With this add-on Firefox just keeps eating more and more memory. Tested with 360 tabs.

Tabs with bueffered video content shouldn't be unloaded Rated 5 out of 5 stars

please add this feature to automatically exclude tabs that buffer videos in the background

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is so awesome! It works out of the box and every default is well chosen. Tabs are unloaded after 10min if you don't do anything with them. Unloaded tabs are dimmed.
Before this extension my 2 Firefox instances would easily reach 1GB but now they hover over 0.5GB. Unloaded tabs also don't use cpu and can't have annoying sounds.

I wish Firefox would add this feature by default because this is such a gamechanger.

Thank you!

Wonderful ext Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Every function is well thought-out and what I really need. "Select prev. selected tab — after closing tab" and "Dim unloaded tabs" particularly.

Perfecto (+ tip to customize unloaded tabs) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have to unzip the .xpi and read the .js file to find this fix.
To customize the tabs unloaded with this addon, the attribute must be (using ChromEdit):

.tabbrowser-tab[uT_tabUnload] {/* Customize n_n */}

Does what it's supposed to, plays nice with TMP and integrates with Tabby2. No complaints there.

However I'd like to see a more intelligent whitelist. Say I want one specific page kept loaded, and any other page on the same domain to unload after a while? Not possible currently..

alternative Rated 4 out of 5 stars

BarTabHeavy is a good alternative and in FF27 unloading even with hundreds of tabs doesn't slow down Firefox... sorry UnloadTab...

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'd give this addon 5 stars if not two big flaws:

1) Indeed, compatibility is an issue. When set to allowing defaults, the expected behaviour is not to interfere at all. Instead it conflicts with Session Manager, so e.g. may always load the previous session despite both addons' preferences implying it won't. It's not quite as bad when only 1 tab per window is loaded, and eventually one can find it back in FF config, but it's still annoying. It can corrupt sessions if allowed to, but this one happens when it's told not to do anything.

2) It supports only very crude domain masks in blacklist. However, half of URLs that needs to be blanket-blacklisted are forms and responces to forms, such as "*/login.*", "*/search.php*" and "*/reply.php*". Of course being able to e.g. keep "https://*.domain.net" untouched while "http://*.domain.net" tabs get unloaded rather than blacklisting the whole domain would be nice too.

It's decent, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It should have the option where it'll only unload if you have X amount of tabs open. So I can set it to unload if I have say 5 tabs, but it won't bother if I only have 3, because three tabs don't take up much memory.

The best at the moment Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I tried every addon to prevent background tab from loading. This is the more achieved. Bartab heavy bugs about adding exceptions.

But I miss Load Tabs Progressively feature a little.Plus, unload tab very need to fix something. When you middle clic a bookmark, it opens in background without loading. OK! But if you middle clic on a bookmark FOLDER, it fails: all tabs opened in background load. If multiple tabs load simultaneously, sure firefox will hang.Please don't give up improving this addon. To users, be aware that it is not compatible with tabmix restore session feature.

Use another session management addon such as session manager.

Great add-on. Just for you to know, I install it on other browser based on FireFox and it´s working fine.

I have just one complain about it, is that it keeps reloading or jumping to top of the page in active tab.

Wow, fantastic! Should be default for most browsers to unload tabs after "x" amount of inactivity. Please keep up the great work!

Working great with Australis so far! Thanks!! I uninstalled TabGroups Manager. Maybe that was causing the issues. Thanks again for updating it!!
