Create Firefox Workspaces
Here’s a tip that must save me hours over the course of a year – I call them WorkSpaces
I am a definite minimalist when it comes to toolbars. I use Firefox 5 almost exclusively and I have 4 rows of essentials visible:
- The tabs
- The address bar
- Bookmarks toolbar
- The essential, couldn’t live without Roboform toolbar
I use the bookmarks toolbar to quickly bookmark. I also have folders on their to try to file stuff in roughly the right place as I go along.
The tip I wanted to share (in case you don’t already do it) is that of WorkSpaces…
I have a folder on my bookmarks toolbar called workspaces and under that I have other folders named by project or task. Frequently for a given project I need to open a number of web pages every time I want to work on that project. So I’ll open up all the tabs I need every time, create a new empty folder under workspaces for the project and then I’ll bookmark all the pages (tabs) I have open in that folder.
Now when I open my browser and I want to work on that project I can just open the appropriate bookmark folder and click ‘open all in tabs’ – bingo, I’m ready to work!!
Combined with roboform I can be ready to work on a project or task in seconds.
