I would be working on, let's say, a blog post. I would have open multiple browser windows (2-3 usually), each with their own VERY IMPORTANT plethora of tabs, all in some sort of order that made sense in my delusional organization plan. I thought I was organized! With my tons of tabs, in order, in multiple windows, trying to figure out which to bring to the front, where a specific webpage was, and then deciding that they were grouped wrong and then dragging tabs from one window to another.
I would drive myself nuts trying to position the windows just right so that I could drag tabs to new windows. It was crushing when I would accidentally close a window FULL of sites to never see them again. Don't even get me started about the amount of prime property it took up in my dock when all these windows were all minimized. It really was going to be the death of me until....
...enter stage right...my savior, my knight-in-shining-armor, my hero ....Firefox Tab Groups. I had the webpage with instructions in an open tab for more than a month before adding it to my "EXPLORE" list in my Outlook ToDo list. It took me a few more months before I had a week this summer to do some R&D.
It was AMAZING, I read the instructions and made a couple of quick clicks, typed in a couple of names, and turned that crazy mess of windows and tabs into THIS (see below). It became a beautifully organized, gathering of websites sorted into groups of small images with titles all in ONE window. Ahhhh, sweet organization!
When you are ready to start browsing click on the tab you want front and center, notice all of the other tabs in that group are available in the same window. When you want to get back to view all the tab groups just click the "Group Your Tabs" button in the top right corner of the Firefox window. Practice going back and forth between tabs and groups but be careful because when it asks if you are sure you want to close the windows it means all of your Firefox windows.
