Context
=======

Firefox 86: extension conflicts 
<https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/loptje/-/> 

– of the six or more extensions that appear to be in conflict with 
  Mozilla-recommended Simple Tab Groups, maybe most notable is the 
  Refined GitHub extension. 

Symptoms (oversimplified): loss of nearly all tabs from any group, if load of the group into a new window is followed by closure of the window.
