Firefox mobile browser is a remarkable alternative to Chrome. Not only is it safer, but it doesn’t track you aggressively like Google’s browser. Firefox also includes a few handy features, one of which is called Collections.
This feature stands out as an efficient way to organize websites, so you can combine related sites into, you guessed it, a collection. With Collections, Firefox makes sense of working with tabs on a mobile device. Instead of having to use a third-party extension or comb through an ever-growing collection of random tabs, just tap on the collection you want and then open any of the websites associated to display the contents.
Firefox’s Collections make sense, and if you’re looking to manage your tabs in a mobile environment, this might be the feature you need. To use it, the only thing you will need is an up-to-date version of Firefox installed on your mobile device. You can install Firefox from the Google Play Store (Android) or the Apple App Store (iPhone and iPad).
When you first open Firefox, you should see a section called Collections with a button labeled “Save tabs to collection”. If you press this button, your current tab list will open and you can choose to add any of the open tabs to the new collection. Select the tabs you want to add to the collection, then tap the file cabinet icon (to the left of the share icon). You will then be prompted to name the new collection.
After giving the new collection a name, press OK to save it. This new collection will appear on the Firefox home screen. If you expand the new collection, you will see all the tabs that have been added. Creating a new collection is not as intuitive. To do this, open a new page in Firefox, then press the menu button located in the lower right corner of the window. In the context menu, press “Save to collection”. In the window that appears, press “Add a new collection”. Give the new collection a name and the tab and collection will be saved.
You can create as many collections as you want in Firefox to make managing your tabs much easier. For anyone who frequently uses a mobile browser, this feature can make a difference.
