(Whiteboard: [security])

We should preferentially update thumbnails for secure (https) tabs, on the assumption that it may be displaying private information.

From security review.

The TabPriorityQueue implemented in bug 602432 would be a good starting point/framework for this.

I wouldn't hold ship for this.

I agree in principle, but it doesn't seem like a high enough priority that it's going to make Fx4

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 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tab-groups-removal 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.
