    I used to be one of the worst offenders for keeping tons of Tabs open.
    Over the last months, I have learned to use the inbuilt FF Bookmarks manager, to cure my bad habit (too many Tabs).
    I was an Analyst in large IT companies for 20 years.
    I doubt that I could create a better solution than what FF has built in, no matter how much resources I were allocated.
    I don’t think that there are pressing advantages to using the add-in you have reviewed.
    Especially as there is the chance that it may not be reliable through future FF releases.
    ‘KISS’ tells me to use the inbuilt bookmarks instead.

    Just sayin,
