- by ximi, 4 lá ó shinRated 3 out of 5Potentially a great extension, but I have the same problem with high cpu activity that others have reported. I don't know if this is a coincidence, but I only have this problem on Windows 10; on my Linux laptop I have no such issue...
- by QuantumLuck, 8 lá ó shinRated 5 out of 5Awesome app and well-formatted results! Easy to customize, too. Group like tabs together, move them around, rename the grouped tabs. This app is just incredible. Much better than interfacing with the old-school bookmarks! 10 out of 10 from me!!
- by Mec, 14 lá ó shinRated 5 out of 5Absolutely love the application!
[SOLVED!] However, I've had to disable it since it's causing the CPU to throttle pretty heavily, my i7700k jumps from 3-5% usage at idle to 60-80% of usage when I enable it. Did some troubleshooting and it is definitely this add-on that causes this behaviour. Maybe a recent update caused this? 6/5 recommend, since of course this could just be due to my specific harware configuration.
(wierdly enough, the issue seems to disappear and reappear randomly, but is always fixed by either removing or disabling the extention)
EDIT: Hi Josh, I haven't been able to replicate the issue since the day I wrote the review, perhaps computer restart(which, to be fair, I should have done perhaps earlier) resolved it. If it resurfaces, I'll make a proper bug report! Thanks for the response, I have modified my rating but left the inital formulation of the problem mostly intact so that if other people have this issue, they'll know it could occur and what to do.
Thanks again Josh, all the best!
Developer responseposted 14 lá ó shinHi, thanks for the review and sorry to hear you're having trouble with performance. There was an issue in older versions of Tab Stash that could cause high background CPU usage, but I'm surprised to hear that it's happening in recent updates as well and that it's recurring even after reinstalling Tab Stash. Would you mind opening a bug on GitHub so I can troubleshoot with you further?
- by Duds, mí ó shinRated 5 out of 5Just incredible... Been searching for an extension to group my tabs for a while. A solution not reliant on restoring tabs during startup puts my mind at ease. Thanks for this!
- by Bogart, mí ó shinRated 5 out of 5Great extension for temporary storage of websites, but the feature that opens the next stashed tab when I close the last open tab is very annoying, I use Ctrl+W to close my browser and this makes it so that doesn't work. I don't know if this is intended, but if it is, there needs to be an option to turn it off as it has led to some uncomfortable moments when someone is looking at my screen. If this was changed, I would raise my rating to 5/5, but it is extremely annoying.
Developer responseposted mí ó shinHi, I'm afraid this is actually Firefox's built-in behavior and is completely outside of Tab Stash's control. To work around it, you can turn on "Close the tab immediately" in Tab Stash's options, so that Tab Stash does not use Firefox's "hidden tabs" feature.
Hope this helps, and sorry for the inconvenience!
- by Firefox user 14416345, mí ó shinRated 5 out of 5Wow, this is a really amazing add on. It is like a combination of One Tab and Safari's Tab Group feature but surprisingly better than both in most ways. It let's you make tab stash groups, name them, you can select tabs from each stash and add them to their own group or reopen the selected ones in a new group, and it adds the tab groups to a bookmarks folder.
Only things I'd love to see is the ability to pin a tab group since it's always pushing down groups as I stash. The bookmarks folder also can get pretty long, but it's nice that it can remember old links for so long. For a person constantly opening 30 tabs at once, the feature is a must-have for Firefox and replaced several add-ons I had previously.
- by jgatto, 2 míonna ó shinRated 5 out of 5I think I've tried most, if not all FF tab management, this one handles so well. Exporting, rather than 'sync', could always stand be easier, in all of them! A little dream is to have this in Chrome based, too, for consistency.
- by Janos Barbero, 2 míonna ó shinRated 1 out of 5Super buggy. When it works, it's great, but sometimes it hides tabs without stashing them, creating sessions that are empty both in the UI and in the bookmarks folder. At this point all you can do is use Firefox's built-in hidden tab UI to restore the tabs - and pray that Firefox doesn't crash first so you lose them.
The concept is great, but a tool like this has to be reliable first of all, and you lose a tab once, you lose the user's trust forever.
Still haven't found anything like Tabs Outliner for Firefox.
Developer responseposted 2 míonna ó shinHi, sorry for the trouble—please open a GitHub bug and I’d be happy to take a look. (I’m afraid I can’t provide support through review comments.)
Tab Stash is designed so that tabs are not hidden until the very end of the stashing process, after all bookmarks are fully-created and stashing is otherwise complete. This is to safeguard your tabs against being lost due to any kind of problem in the stashing process.
From what you’re describing, my best guess is that you might have a conflicting add-on installed (or there is something else in your system) that is messing with the bookmarks very shortly AFTER they are being created by Tab Stash. There is at least one extension known to cause this behavior, listed in the Tab Stash wiki (afraid I don’t recall the name at the moment and I’m not in front of my computer to check).
In any case, as I said above, please open a bug and I’d be happy to troubleshoot with you further.
