Mozilla is developing a new feature that will allow you to find a particular tab from multiple open tabs quicker on Firefox.
Some times while working on your computer, multiple tabs are opened. This makes scrolling the different open tabs to search for a particular tab quite stressful. If you experience this often, then Mozilla wants to make things easier for you.
In the upcoming update, Mozilla will add a new feature to Firefox 66. Firefox’s New Feature will allow you to find a particular tab from multiple open tabs by simply searching the text contained in that tab’s title.
There are two was to use Firefox’s New Feature.
If you want to search a tab from the host of open tabs, type % followed by a space and the text featured in that particular tab’s title. For example, here if you want to search the opened Reddit tab then you will type “% red,” and all the tabs with “red” in the title will be displayed for you to choose. The feature will also search through the tabs opened in a different window. Check the image below.
Another way of using Firefox’s New Feature, will be to use the “Search tab” option which will only appear in the list of all open tabs menu, when multiple tabs are opened in the browser. You can search for any open tab by simply clicking on the option and typing in the keyword in the tab’s title in the address bar. Check the image below.
This option is easier, as it will eliminate the step of typing in the percentage symbol.
Though this feature is available in Firefox 64, the current version of the Firefox browser, it only works as a search shortcut and not a full-fledged feature.
