Tab Group Bar

Nice, Simple and very Promising Tab Organiser! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As a seasoned heavy-duty firefox user, and I'm one of you guys who has way too many tabs open at the same time, surfing all over the internet and coming accross all kinds of stuff that need to stay open for near future use and thus need to be organised.

Previously I used Tab Groups Manager for this, which still is the best and most used tab organiser for Firefox period. To the point that thousands and thousands of users actually still use Firefox 16.0, and disabled auto update, just tokeep using this marvellous tab organiser (since its support was discontinued back in 2011 and doesnt work in newer FF releases from 17 upwards).

This new plugin is very promising! No need to bloat it up with fancy icons or anything.
Two things this add-on MUST have if it wants to be a popular tab manager:

1. Add possibility to simply Drag & Drop tabs into another group (instead of the tidious right click on tab through the menu: very cumbersone and impractical!). This will allow fans of Tab Groups Manager to switch to this addon (and finally upgrade their Firefox from 16.0 to 26.0 for godsake!! it was about time:)

2. Provive a simple [backup to file...] and [restore from file...] solution sothat heavy users dare to adopt this addon as a serious alternative. This can double as a kind of session manager and will attrackt Session Manager users to switch over as well. Problem with Session Manger has always been the lack of ability to realtime drag & drop tabs into other groups and other sessions.


Provide these two solutions and I'm sure thousands will finally dare to say goodbye to the Tab Groups Manager legend and that of Session Manager... and start using this nifty little clean addon instead.

You are not there yet, but I applaud your start: Very promising !!

Contact me if you need any strategic advise or just wanna brainstorm for fun!
My honour to help think together with you on this,

TabGroups Manager

Great add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

GREAT
Great Add-on Axel! I am enjoying this add-on for more than two years now, and I must say I cannot live life without it :)

BUG REPORT
Small Bug found in FireFox 17.0 Sometimes tabs cannot be closed when pressing the [X]! the [X] button on the tabs does not react somtimes since FF version 17.0 (I have disabled all add-ons except TGM and still the problem remains)

TIP / ADVISE
Please make an option that allows clean tabs: without the round borders top-left and top-right and without the 2 or 3 pixel border lines. In this way the tabs will be cleaner, simpler for my taste ( I am an innovator from Holland :) After this is implemented, please let me know sothat I can make a donation!

Allllllmost PERFECT Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Indeed very fast, Awesome little addon works like a charm in FF 4

BUT .... it does necessitate me to click on it to see the exact PR every time. The addons graphics is SO TINY that its barely visible : too small to tell the difference between a 3 and a 4 etc is impossible to see from the graphic icon. Two possible solutions:

A) a soft white/gray number into the icon
B) a wider graphic that uses more horizontal space will solve this easily! Dont make it any higher, just twice wider. It will still be very tiny icon, but much more readable!

Once you do, I will come back to give 5/5 stars!
