Firefox 56.0.1 with Auto Unload Tabs, Tab Groups, Tab Scope, Tab Tally and Vertical Tabs Reloaded:
A thirty-five minute screen recording, I don’t expect anyone to watch it in its entirety. There’s an exotic mix of extensions, and the recording does capture a variety of issues that affect more than one extension, so I invite moderators to move this topic to the Add-ons category …
… however it’s worth beginning in the Firefox Development category because a developer’s perspective might include the possibility of:
- a weakness in Mozilla code for unloading and loading tabs
- maybe combined with a weakness in code for history
– with weakness exposed by my heavy pushing of things (plus some hogging of the CPU by OBS).

Instead of a proper load: where previously a tab was unloaded … there’s:
- a tab with no URL
– and whilst the title is present in the sidebar …, it’s missing from the title bar.
… tentatively disabled Tab Scope. …
Subsequent views of history were without one of the lost tabs.
