It is a functionally beautiful add-on. It does all I expected it to do. However, I noticed a big hit on Firefox performance when it is enabled and there are a lot of tabs open (which is why I needed it in the first place). In summary, I had to disable it and switched to "Tab sidebar", which is not as feature packed, but keeps my Firefox quick.
Great extensions, works perfectly... ...but i just noticed that your extension have low activity always on background, even when sidebar is not even open. Firefox own task manager show "low (0.4)" all the time. I am aware that all extensions are sometimes active on background, but not all the time.
Its a good start. I like the extension but not so much to give 5 stars just yet. But still great work. To suggestions Mordynak wrote I'd add few below: 1) Customizing the containers as you'd like. At the moment there are only 5 categories. I'd like to modify or remove some them completely and replaced with my own. 2) Possibility to hide tabs in containers from the browser's tab bar. Possibility to show only these which are inside of focused container.
Suggestions It would be nice if we could choose the theme for it. Or atleast just have it use the selected Firefox theme. Currently its a dark theme?? It should match the History and Bookmarks sidebar theme.
It would also be nice to be able to adjust the vertical padding between tabs. Compact, Normal and Touch maybe? It could perhaps use your Firefox settings for this. Have a look at the History or Bookmarks sidebars for example. They practically show the same ammount of information you need on this sidebar, except they take up far less vertical space.
Lastly. An option for pinned tabs not to appear at the top of the list, but instead at the top of the container in which they are apart of. Perhaps with an icon or someway of discerning between them and regular tabs.
Overall I really like the Addon. Its the best I've found that shows groups of tabs like it does. I just think it could do with a little more work.
Good idea but it doesn't actually work that well. Nothing appears in sidebar, just a blank canvas. White icon only works on dark Firefox theme, it's hard to see on default & light. Hope to see improvement from developer.
Hello Davin, thanks for your review. I am sorry it doesn't work for you. Could you please: - go to about:debugging - tick Enable add-on debugging - click debug under Container Tabs Sidebar - close and reopen the sidebar (F2) - see if there are any errors/warnings related to the sidebar and send them to me?
It would also help if you provided me with the firefox version and OS you are using. Theme related issues are going to be addressed soon.
