@michael:schnerring.netmichael Well, this comment kind of made me resign investigating this further. He had similar issues to mine and spent way more time investigating this before giving up. When I read the sync code of MAC, I quickly realized it's probably a waste of time investigating this because the code is pretty poorly documented and I cannot really understand what's going on without investing hours upon hours of studying and becoming a FF expert. It requires a lot of understanding on how FF containers work, how MAC interacts with vanilla FF containers and how MAC persists and syncs persisted data. And then one has to figure out how it interacts with the Temporary Containers plugin. It's just really complex 00:30:56

@rhardy613:matrix.orgrhardy613I've been using containers for a very long time. There seems to be regression with Firefox 89.0.1 which results in constant prompting for which container I want my home page to open in. The remember option isn't helping. I always want Default. Has anyone found a way around this glitch?14:02:51

No, I haven't.

@alexj:mozilla.orgalexj (mozilla.org)hi! I I've been using multi account containers for a while (probably the best feature that people don't generally know about) but I reached a point where I have so many containers that they become hard to navigate though the list are there any plans to make the containers list look more like bookmarks and have a hierarchy rather than a flat list? 23:40:38

@dannycolin:mozilla.orgDanny Colin AlexJ (Mozilla): I'm not one of the devs but from what I've heard the addon is in maintenance mode so I doubt there'll be new features added in the near future. 00:00:47
@alexj:mozilla.orgalexj (mozilla.org)oh no, that would be a shame if they deprecate this hopefully they will just built it into default Firefox because this is very much a differentiator compared to any other browser 00:02:01
@dannycolin:mozilla.orgDanny ColinNo worries. They won't deprecated it and will still release security updates if needed.00:04:03
@dannycolin:mozilla.orgDanny Colin AlexJ (Mozilla): It isn't a perfect solution to your issue but after clicking on the "Manage containers" in the popup you can reorder them. So you could at least move those you use the most at the top. 00:06:47
@alexj:mozilla.orgalexj (mozilla.org)already do that.. thing is that I basically have 1 container per site.. so when I sometimes need to open something in a specific site, it's hard to navigate I need to do O(n) search since it's not going to be alphabetical.. having some hierarchy would be useful 00:08:45
@caspy7:mozilla.orgCaspy7 AlexJ (Mozilla): you might look to see if there are any addons that have a setup making your approach simple (one container per site)
Also fyi, the containers feature is built into Firefox as an extension API, even if Mozilla stopped maintaining MAC completely, someone else could fork it and continue to maintain it
00:11:06
@caspy7:mozilla.orgCaspy7 AlexJ (Mozilla): here's just one collection of addons that all relate to containers https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/12325762/container-webextensions/ 00:12:12
@alexj:mozilla.orgalexj (mozilla.org)weeell, I actually keep away from addons which are not made by Mozilla (due to security) which is why I would like to see this either in Firefox itself or an official Mozilla addon00:12:24
@dannycolin:mozilla.orgDanny Colin It isn't from mozilla but Temporary Containers is from a trustworthy developer. 00:15:10
@dannycolin:mozilla.orgDanny ColinYou can also join #tmp:mozilla.org if you want to ask if it would cover your use case.00:15:55
@caspy7:mozilla.orgCaspy7 AlexJ (Mozilla): if you're trying to ensure that no site "sees" any other site, I think one of Moz's more recent built-in features does this. Might ask in #security:mozilla.org about this. 00:20:06
@alexj:mozilla.orgalexj (mozilla.org)eh, I just prefer to keep my browser clean from code with shady sources anyway, thanks folks for replies, take care!00:33:37
