Too late for this for Fx4. 

The real fix for this is to get rid of our "hidden" state for closed groups and actually close them for real and restore them via some new sessionstore "undo closed group" feature.

I suppose a more short-term fix would be to somehow go into those hidden tabs and tell flash to shut up, but that sounds difficult.

Panorama has been removed from Firefox 45, currently in Beta and scheduled for release on March 7th. As such, I'm closing all existing Panorama bugs.

If you are still using Panorama, you will see a deprecation message in Firefox 44, and when 45 is released your tab group data will be migrated to bookmarks, with a folder for each group. There are also a few addons offering similar functionality.

See for more info.

We're removing Panorama because it has extremely low usage (about 0.01% of users), and has a large number of bugs and usability issues. The cost of fixing all those issues is far too high to justify, and so we'll instead be focusing our time and energy on improving other parts of Firefox.
