Closed a year or so ago, but the issue continued to bug my use of Firefox – and was reproducible in safe mode:
… so frequent a problem with Gitter in multiple tabs in Firefox that I habitually restricted Gitter to no more than one tab.
– still, that single-tab restriction was not enough to reliably avoid the issue.
For the past few days, I have restricted my use of Gitter to a Firefox container. Touch wood:
- with the containment, no problems
– no mismatches, and so on …
If that truly is a workaround: I don’t understand why, and (sorry) I can not be sure that future changes to containers technology and/or related extensions, by Mozilla and others, will allow the workaround to remain good.
Whilst those uncertainties continue: I’m crossing my fingers, stepping up my use of Gitter to multiple chat rooms in a single container in a single window … hopefully the workaround will remain good.
Inexplicably good will be better than nothing!
Whilst I have not used Mozilla’s extension for the supposed workaround, it does make sense to mention what’s above here:
– I’m not aware of Mozilla gathering Firefox containers use cases in any other area.
