Details

(This bug is taking over bug 566510 which has spanned too long of a time period, in which the code base has changed significantly and some of the restrictions that were dealt with when the bug was filed are no longer relevant (such as support for XUL addons.)

We should support multiselect operations (Shift for range, Cmd on Mac and Ctrl on Windows/Linux for individual items) on the tabs themselves, to support closing lots of tabs in one go, and dragging N selected tabs into a new window, etc.

The interaction would look like this:
1. Select first tab
2. Hold down shift
3. Select last tab in the range
4. Get selection highlight indicator showing what tabs are now selected
5. Execute operation on selected tabs.

Since I haven't seen it mentioned, I figured I might as well ask: Is bookmarking a selection of tabs by dragging and dropping them to bookmark bar/side bar/etc. planned as well?

Yes, but we don't have a bug on file for that. Can you file a bug for that and mark it as blocking this bug? You can click the "New/Clone Bug" button at the bottom of this page and choose the "that blocks this bug" option. You can set the component of the new bug to be the same as this component, "Tabbed Browser".

I found Bug 1480907 was filed. It should block this bug.
Regarding the Reload/Bookmark All Tabs features, will the tab multi-select be permanently discoverable?

Those menuitems should only move to their new location when the multi-select feature is enabled.
