It should be possible since some tab management extension were used in 
mozilla to evaluate if webextensions are mature enough and if support of 
XUL add-ons could be dropped. On the other hand do not expect such 
feature soon. A kind of semi-blocker is absence of automatic tests to 
run before every release, and it will require a lot of time.

In the meanwhile, have you looked at the following comment?

I am almost sure that similar extension should exist for Firefox as well.

Some points should be clarified in my opinion

- Do you expect that metadata should be captured in addition to URLs and 
titles? Browsers can unload some tabs making page content unavailable.
- Are you going to capture reviews of "rice cookers" that could be 
considered as ordinary pages or you are going to save items from online 
stores? I do not current state of affairs but I have heard about some 
activity for special metadata that allows search engines to display 
products in a special way. Could you inspect head element of pages in 
your favorite stores contains desired metadata using page source or 
inspect element tools?
- Should tab group be captured as single Org heading or it should be a 
tree with a section per tab? I am not sure that capture will have no 
problem with subtree. Certainly Emacs interface for org-protocol + 
capture are not suitable for sending each tab as a separate link. 
Another option is to create nested lists, anyway org formatter in my 
extension need improvements. Are you expecting headings subtree or 
nested lists?

Fully agree that it is really annoying. It is among high priority items 
in my TODO list.

Accidentally I pressed =C-x C-o= and discovered 
[[help:delete-blank-lines]] innerText is not exactly the same as 
selection range toString but the rules could work in a similar way. 
Table rows, floating and absolutely positioned elements require 
newlines. Such elements are often abused by designers.
