Looking for an add-on/extension that will collapse Pinned Tabs into one Button on Tab Bar

[Pinned Tabs Take Up Too Much Space](https://preview.redd.it/qg3s62usoh471.png?width=1055&format=png&auto=webp&s=e38a7348f2e05e562c5d9ea3c68b8c8150b05e4f)

As you can see in the screenshot of the Tab and Address bars of my Firefox setup, I have multiple Pinned Tabs for multiple accounts for multiple social media networks. Although Pinned Tabs and Multi-Account Containers work great, unfortunately the amount of space dedicated to the Pinned Tabs consumes too much of the Tab Bar. Only one and a half other tabs are now visible, which forces me to constantly use the List All Tabs dropdown. Making the FF window wider or fullscreen is not an option, so I would like to make better use of the current real estate of the window.

I would love to find an add-on/extension that would allow me to collapse all Pinned Tabs into a Button similar to the List All Tabs button. Something of a List All Pinned Tabs button. There is already wasted space to the left of the Tab Bar that seems like a perfect location for it. I have software development experience, but I have never created a browser extension.

Does anyone know of an extension that could provide this functionality? If not, is anyone interested in creating one or helping me do so?

  1. Well, there is STG.

    It doesnt create placeholder buttons/tabs, but you can switch between the groups via the toolbar button.

    I am a addon developer and could help you out,
    but i dont really see the need / usefulness for the addional visual representation of the pinned tab group. To be fair i had a similar idea once, but came to the conclusion, that the placeholder tab just wastes space again.
