If undo closed tab group is implemented, then it will be sensible for Firefox to remember a number of recently closed tab groups.

Some notes on implementation and design.

* When you restore a group it tries to appear where it last was before it was closed. Accordingly, other groups will move out of the way using the standard skittering behavior that occlusion causes if there is occlusion.
* For named groups, the menu entry can simply read as the name of the group.
* For unnamed groups the menu entry should read "5 Tabs — Slashdot, Techcrunch, Mozilla, ...". The general rule being listing the number of tabs followed by the domain names in order minus their TLD and subdomains. Ellipsification occurs at when the length of the names goes over 41 characters.

We should probably do this after I've done the groups.jsm work for bug 578512.

I believe we're not going to get this in before feature freeze; marking for "future".

That is most regrettable but understandable given the tight timetable of feature fix in September 10.
