- by howiem, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 51. It is easier to use than bookmarks because the user can slide links around quickly.
2. By using the import function users can create new groups
3. I use a sandboxed browser (sandboxie.com) and I would like to see changed is to add the ability to export all URLs to a text editor and retain the group names, so when I empty the sandbox and restart the browser I don't have to manually put in group names again. I do this manually (export, copy, paste into a Text file), but it is not as
productive a method.
4. It would also be nice if the options settings could be retained instead of having to reset them each time after deleting the sandbox contents.
I haven't seen any changes for a lon?g time so why are we asked to make recommendations
- by Firefox user 13389167, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5Li análise anterior, de 2015, e o problema se repete: o OneTab perde todos os dados de links que armazenamos nele. Do nada, um belo dia, os mais de 600 links somem. Mas nem tudo está perdido, se você exportar seus links regularmente, para um arquivo de texto com nome mais ou menos assim: OneTab 20180711. Se você não usa janelas privativas, pode recompor seus links acessados usando o histórico. Mas se quiser usar o OneTab para armazenar seus links de abas privativas, precisará exportar os dados do OneTab antes de sair do Firefox. Então, em caso de perda de dados da extensão, basta fazer o processo inverso, importar do arquivo que você gravou. É sempre conveniente lembrar que o OneTab é agil, mas não foi projetado especificamente para guardar toda uma base de histórico de links.
- by mozbat, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5Onetab has proved very useful to me for some time now, but I was finally bitten by its hidden danger. Firefox (59.0.2) stumbled over something & when I exited & re-ran the browser, all my Onetab data had disappeared. I do take nightly backups, but when I followed the only advice I could find from Onetab (to replace "store.json" in the jetpack tree) nothing changed. It was only when I discovered 111byte's posting in this forum that I learnt that Onetab data is actually stored in "storage.js" in the browser-extension-data tree!
Even if Onetab's authors don't improve the way they handle backups, I hope they at least update their info on where the data is kept. Onetab is an inspired add-on, but it is in real need of the updating it's authors are continually promising. Thank you for the contribution, but you really need to communicate better with your users.
- by Firefox user 13845836, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5good app but what happened to the too many tabs though? it worked fine and was discontinued commentless - the problem is i lost all my saved tabs with the discontinued extension. who can tell me it will not happen with this one too - so unless there is some kind of backup option no full start rating from me.
- by Musashi-san, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5Love it, but the tab doesn't remain pinned on the latest Firefox Beta. Not sure if this is because of Firefox or OneTab itself. Great extension, although I'd like to see synchronisation between devices.
- by Firefox user 13598937, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5Notice for one tab users: Extensions works as intended on firefox quantum, any problem detected on my daily usage. BUT, because Mozilla switched to web extension, all tabs data is stored under AppData/Roaming/Profile folder and inside of \browser-extension-data\email@example.com folder, as a file named STORAGE.JS.
**If you are using SSD, or using this extension heavily on your pc, I ADVISE YOU TO BACKUP STORAGE FILE DAILY. Because of an unexpected power loss on my computer, I lost my all saved tabs data, and the worse thing is: Because of trim nature on SSD's, there is no way to recover the file itself.
As a future request, the developer should find a more reliable way to store tabs data, more than dumping all tab information into only 1 file, which is a great risk, especially for SSD users. Maybe, some regular backups or twin file system can be implemented on the extension (Take these as example, there must be more reliable ways).
Anyway, I wrote this review with the hurt of my lost data and FOR TL, DR's: I advise you to back up this extension data regularly with external tools.
- by Lara Besto, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5Could you add the option to auto add to the one tab list tabs that have not been visited in for example a week? (With the amount of time being configurable up to a month or something like that)
Could you add the ability to manually create new tab groups and be able to contract and expand the listed tabs on the groups?
