Tab Center Reborn is the continuation of <a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/tab-center-redux/">Tab Center Redux</a> to provide a simple, powerful and well-integrated extension to manage tabs vertically.
The extension provides a handful of settings and allows power-users to customize its appearance completely with CSS code.
You might especially be interested in hiding the top tab bar:
– All features of Firefox tab bar (pinning, duplicating, moving to start/end, closing tabs after, etc.)
– “Unload Tab” and “Close Tabs Before” options to accommodate managing a lot of tabs
– A notification allows you to undo if “Close Tabs Before”, “Close Tabs After” or “Close Other Tabs” closed more than 5 tabs
– Looks and act native, has animations (can be disabled)
– Works with and uses containers: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers
– Adapt to full Firefox themes (simpler themes don’t provide enough colors to work with)
– Synchronizes your settings with Firefox Sync
– Shift + F1: opens or closes the sidebar
– Shift + F2: switches to last active tab
Note that you can configure those: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/manage-extension-shortcuts-firefox
Shortcuts when clicking new tab button/container name in new tab context menu (right-click):
– Ctrl + click: opens after current tab if default is at the end (and opens at the end if default is after current tab)
– Shift + click: opens a new window
– Ctrl + Shift + click: opens a new private window (if Tab Center Reborn is allowed to run in private windows)
