I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Release memory from inactive tabs & workspaces

    Unload inactive tabs' pages from memory, and session restore them if/when their tab is next selected. This could significantly reduce Firefox RAM consumption when many tabs are open, and also greatly speed up restarts (as tabs would only be loaded as needed rather than restoring all tabs immediately). Obviously care would have to be taken with things like Flash applications which might lose their state if reloaded.

    • Search bar for filtering tabs

      The tab bar (especially when vertical) should have a find-as-you-type search box letting you filter the tab bar by title and url (and optionally page text) to help you find tabs faster. See mockup of the tab bar after filtering by "goog": http://tinyurl.com/tk-mockup-searchresults
