Group All Open Tabs into One Single Tab in Firefox

I have a habit of opening many Firefox Tabs at a time. The links from Twitter, the pages I would like to read later when I am free; On average I have 15 tabs open, sometimes they are over 50.

Having a lot of tabs open is a distraction, it becomes hard to navigate after a while. Too many tabs makes Firefox slower and consumes a lot of memory (even after using RAMBack).

I found a solution to my problem.

Make sure you do not have anything to loose in any of the open tags, like filled in forms or something. Then close Firefox, No kidding πŸ˜‰

Open Firefox again and go to:


Type in the above to the address bar and this would bring up the Session Restore window, the same window that would come up the next time you open Firefox after it has crashed.

Group Firefox Tabs - No, its not Embaressing this time ;)

This window would have all the tabs you had open, the last time you closed Firefox. Now I can continue with what I was doing on a new tab. If you have set Firefox to open all closed tabs when you open it next time, you will have to close each of them first.

When I feel like reading the open pages, I can return to this tab and choose β€˜Restoreβ€˜. How cool is that? πŸ˜‰

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!

Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.


  1. Can’t we just use the history -> Show all history or something like that? Ideally in the same session one would use Recently closed tabs or across multiple sessions history. Probably someone should write a better History plugin to make things easier πŸ™‚

    • The problem is recently closed Tabs only store the last 10 and history in firefox is highly useless. I have been using this method effectively for a while now.

      Blame the cool links from twitter, FF is always full πŸ˜‰

    Lol, I always get that ‘Embarrassing’ note when I visit YouTube on Firefox.
    Means, if YouTube is one of the tab and something ‘Aw Snap’ happens to firefox, then that ’embarrassing’ message appears (I have flash installed).

    • I use a different firefox profile (and run them together) while I go to youtube or open Google Wave. If not, I can forget about all the unsaved data πŸ˜‰

    I have the same problem, but I’ve just started using the Too Many Tabs firefox add-on. It looks like an elegant solution. πŸ™‚
