TabGroups Manager 2011.11.28.1.1-signed.1-signed Requires Restart
TabGroups Manager helps to classify and organize tabs by dividing them into Groups. Because tabs become easier to manage, you can never have too many! TabGroups Manager is ideal for tab power users.
About this Add-on
*GroupBar + Groups:
TabGroups Manager adds a GroupBar which is displayed above the tab bar. Here you can create Groups for organizing and managing your tabs
This feature allows you to temporarily put a group into hibernation (sleep mode). This is useful if you have too many tabs open and need to save memory.
The standard Session Store feature of Firefox is necessary to restore Tabs, Groups and Hibernated Groups when re-starting Firefox.

The developer does his best to document every feature added to TabGroups Manager. Furthermore, all questions and bug reports are always read and responded to.
However, it is important to note that the developer writes (and reads) in his native language (Japanese). Translations are done by machine and so may not be perfect. This language barrier cannot be helped.
Modify : Change format of Data file. ( can read old data file )
Firefox throw exception when large data is written
Firefox throws exception when large data is written to the file and large data is encoded / decoded JSON.
I modified that TGM divide hibernated groups data into each group and save to the file in each line.
Therefore, exception is not thrown even if there are a lot of hibernated groups.
Add : TGM moves all tabs to the groups before loading tab when Firefox start. ( after Firefox4 )
Even if there are a lot of tabs, TGM can move all tabs to the group in an instant.

Modify : I decreased the process( show / hide tab and move the order of tab ) when Firefox start. ( after Firefox4 )
