- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 13813702, 9 míonna ó shinThis 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.Hello, 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.
- Rated 5 out of 5by pnhan, 9 míonna ó shinThanks for the great utility.
I have ADHD and often have information overload, this tool has helped me a lot in staying organized.
If you can integrate feature to manage tags in lists/groups or items, the utility will be even better.
Thank you so much.

- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 15166984, 9 míonna ó shinI haven't seen this mentioned before but I'm actually using this for all of my bookmarks. It just makes organising them so much easier. 18 Groups and 901 tabs... wonder if there's a limit? Seems to be working well so far.Hi, thanks for your review! There's no limit as such, and I've heard of users with thousands of tabs saved with no issues. So you should be good for a while. :)
If you do run into issues, though, feel free to open a GitHub issue and I'll be happy to take a look!
- Rated 2 out of 5by Chi, 9 míonna ó shinWhenever I turn on this add on, firefox starts to take 60%-70% CPU usage. Had to remove it though the user experience is good. Hope the developer can help solve this issue.Hi, there are a few possible reasons for this, some of which are caused by Firefox itself--you can check this bug report on GitHub to see if any of the situations apply to you: https://github.com/josh-berry/tab-stash/issues/175
And if the suggestions there don't help, please feel free to open another bug report on GitHub and I'll be happy to take a look.
- Rated 5 out of 5by fv, 10 míonna ó shinVery useful if you use to browse with many many tabs open. Like one does :)
Container support (storing and restoring to the same container) would make this extension perfect!
- Rated 5 out of 5by WLLP, 10 míonna ó shinI am migrating from the "new" edge chromium thing. One of the few things I liked about it was collections as a nice way to organize ideas. I think combined with pocket this can replicate that for me and more
- Rated 5 out of 5by HobbesOTR, 10 míonna ó shinAfter giving up on the competition, I returned to the Mozilla universe. In doing so, I found that FF was no longer the problem child it had once been. It's now speedy and fun once more. Only thing missing was decent tab manager. Enter Tab Stash. This is one of the sleekest, simplest and reliable extensions I've encountered. Josh, you've done what Mozilla could not - gave FF a good, reliable tab manager - I LOVE IT! Ya did a great job and made a lot of users happy. Only thing I'd change at this point is to add an opportunity to click on a stashed tab, have it open and remain in the stash.Thanx!!!
Developer responseposted 10 míonna ó shinThanks, I'm really glad to hear Tab Stash is working well for you!
Re. your comment about switching tabs, you actually can--just click on the tab title itself (NOT the yellow "Open and delete" button). Tab Stash will switch to or open the tab (restoring it from an existing hidden or recently-closed tab if possible) but keep it in the stash.
Hope this helps, and thanks again for the kind words!
- Rated 5 out of 5by Simone.parvizi, 10 míonna ó shinGREAT. it's literally what i wanted. I would just put further away the "open and close everything " button from the "open every tab" button, so that it would be less probable to missclick. THANK YOU
- Rated 5 out of 5by jonassa, bliain ó shinI have tried probably 10-15 tab management extensions over the years, for both Firefox and Chrome. This is the best one I've ever used. It's simple and does the job.
Using bookmark folders to store tabs is ideal, because these can be synced with your Firefox account, and everything that is already possible to do with bookmarks (such as export/import) works here as well.
I love that I can set up a keyboard shortcut to stash and close the tabs of the current window. I wish there was a shortcut to open the stash in a tab without closing anything however.
Developer responseposted 10 míonna ó shinThanks for the review and I'm glad you're enjoying it!
If you're interested in this keyboard shortcut, I'd encourage you to open a feature request here: https://github.com/josh-berry/tab-stash/issues/new?template=feature_request.md
There's a bit more space on GitHub for discussion, Q&A, etc. about feature requests and bugs, and keeping everything in one place on GitHub helps me to organize and track everything.
- Rated 3 out of 5by buffy, bliain ó shinThis addon does not have confirm dialog before stashing all your tabs, and doesn't restore the tab forward/backward history after unstashing, you have been warned.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 17123614, bliain ó shinThis wonderful add-on has saved me from being buried alive under hundreds of tabs from different projects I'm working on.
I do have a few feature requests, would it be possible to add a setting in the options menu, so you can sort the tab groups from newest to oldest? This would save me from scrolling all the way down to the bottom of a large tab group to see the newest tabs within that group.
Perhaps even an option to pin specific tab groups at the top of the list?
Regardless this extension is an absolute lifesaver!
Developer responseposted bliain ó shinHi, thanks for your review and I'm glad you've found Tab Stash useful!
Feature requests are tracked on GitHub, you can see the entire list here: https://github.com/josh-berry/tab-stash/labels/i-enhancement
Looks like there is one filed for pinning groups already (feel free to subscribe to the issue for updates):
I don't think we have one yet for changing the order of the groups, but if you'd like to file a new one and share any additional details/thoughts that might be helpful, here's where to go:
