Hello, I wanted to report the downstream bug report for additional context about this issue: https://github.com/mozilla/multi-account-containers/issues/1311 Best Regards
Hi, I want to keep opening the original tab. Because, For example, I have 2 login account firstname.lastname@example.org and the other is email@example.com. logged in gmail with firstname.lastname@example.org in tab A And then "reopen in container" on tab A > choose shopping > gmail page will opene in new tab B > I can logged in with 2nd account (i.e. email@example.com). Then, I can close the tab B when I finish checking shopping. And then I can continue business one. So this sequence is very useful for me. If original tab is closed, I must reopen gmail with firstname.lastname@example.org again after I finish checking shopping. Sorry my bad English.
Hello, Makes sense, if you are already in a container, I just wanted to offer a caveat though. If you are not in a container and you wanted to open the page you are on in a container, closing the original would still be preferable. Perhaps, "Reopen in Container Example, close existing" or some other more fancy description.
Or provide a key modifier. "reopen in container" > chose "shopping" then duplicate in container tab and the close original tab. "reopen in container" > chose "shopping" with Ctrl Key then duplicate in container tab and not close the original tab.
@Alice0775 Maybe having two containers (business, shopping) would be a better workflow in your use case no? That way, you save the click to open the second account in an other container. It'll also better isolate your data between both account. I mean containers are about creating separate "context" where one container isn't aware (can't access) data in an other container. Also, I've opened this issue because the word "reopen" imply that something has been closed before it was reopened. If not, it should be named "open in container".
Okay. I understand.
