Simplified Tab Groups for Firefox
NOTE: This project is currently unmaintained. If someone wants to take over, check this discussion and drop me a note.
This project aims to provide a simple add-on to replace some functionalities from TabView/Tab Groups/Panorama which were removed from Firefox due to a lot of open bugs and a very low overall usage.
The add-on is available at addons.mozilla.org and should be installed there to ensure the add-on stays updated.
Please note that this extension is currently in a very unstable and untested state and may kill your tabs or small kittens. While it may get improved and secured in the future, I strongly advise you to make a backup of your important tabs...
Assuming you have Node.js v5 installed on your machine, building this project is rather easy.
- Install the dependencies:
./node_modules/.bin/jake buildto build all source files into the
dist/directory or run
./node_modules/.bin/jake runto build the add-on and start a Firefox instance for testing.
jake run uses
jpm and you can pass additional parameters to it by setting
an environment variable, for example:
JPM_PARAMS="-b nightly" jake run
