What is Container Tab Groups?

"Container Tab Groups" is a Firefox add-on designed to enhance tab management. It emulates the Chrome-like tab groups using isolated and secure container tabs. This allows users to use different logins for each tab group and prevent cookies from accumulating. The add-on also provides per-container options for preferred languages, user-agent strings, and proxy settings. It is an effective tool for organizing and managing your browsing tasks securely.

Tab group = Container

The button to show controls for containers is by default on the corner of the tab strip. The button has three dots in it.

  2. Open tabs related to the task in that container.
  3. When finished, delete the container to remove all the clutters.
