When a tab is being attempted to move to another group if it does not have a name the tab group is not displayed in the values for "Move to Group" which we get on right clicking on a tab at tab bar.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have a tab group which does not have a name
2.Right click on a tab on tab menu in another tab group.
3.See that user is not able to move to the tag group in step 1.



Firefox can give default names to tab groups which may or may not be displayed in the tabcandy all tab group view.

Tab groups not having default names is an explicit interaction decision. This way, the user creates and then names a group, thus attaching both mental and literal significance to it.

In some ways this creates a diverging mental model of how you interact with groups. Named groups are explicitly created; they are more permanent. Unnamed groups lack inherent significance; they are, or can be, impermanent.
