- by Firefox user 13813702, 6 míonna ó shinRated 1 out of 5This increases the power consumption of Firefox on my Macbook Air M1 hugely. The energy impact went from around 1 to 5 to around 40. It was a total battery killer. By one-by-one disabling my extensions I found it was Tab Stash.
Developer responseposted 6 míonna ó shinHello, at the moment, there are two known issues (one in Tab Stash and one in Firefox) that can lead to high CPU usage and which I'm looking into for the next Tab Stash release. Fortunately, there are workarounds for both.
First, if you upgraded to Tab Stash 2.10 from an earlier release and you notice high CPU usage after the upgrade, please try uninstalling/reinstalling Tab Stash (simply disabling it isn't sufficient). Pre-2.10 versions had a bug which left some stale deleted-items entries around, and when you first upgrade to 2.10, those entries will be cleared all at once, resulting in the high CPU. Uninstalling/reinstalling Tab Stash is another, faster way to clear out the old entries.
Second, there is a bug in Firefox's saved session handling which can cause Tab Stash to have high CPU usage. Tab Stash tries to work around this bug, but the workaround is what causes the high CPU. The bug seems to have gotten worse in recent Firefox releases and so I'm looking at ways to improve the workaround. In the meantime, however, clearing out any invalid saved-session data usually resolves the problem; you can find instructions here:
If neither of these things helps, please feel free to open an issue on GitHub and I'd be happy to troubleshoot further with you there.

For example: Buttons that does nothing, restore tabs in the wrong order & you way to easily delete all tabs.
Also the out-of-box preferences are not good for new users.
Developer responseposted bliain ó shinSorry to hear you were having trouble. There's not much for me to go on here, but what you're describing sounds like an issue with Firefox itself that affects a small handful of Tab Stash users, where Firefox's extension APIs sometimes don't work.
This can happen due to Firefox's saved session data getting corrupted. Tab Stash naturally uses Firefox's tab/session APIs quite a bit, so when things don't work right, Tab Stash will naturally also stop working.
