Love the idea behind the tech & it's great, but I've lost tabs twice now in Firefox. Wrote in to request assistance restoring & haven't had a response for two weeks. They say a new version is coming that fixes the bug but is there an ETA?

Not reliable. I already lost saved links with this addon several times...

Yep, I'm done Rated 1 out of 5 stars

OneTab lost ALL my tabs for the 3rd time. I tried restoring from previous versions of store.json, going back 2 weeks, and THAT didn't work. I know my tabs have been there and accessible in the last two weeks, so clearly OneTab isn't saving them correctly.

This add-on is less the useless, it's harmful.

So far, so good. Does what I want, when I want it and how I want it.
The features are just rich enough without being bloated or complicated. The options are spot-on for and everything I wondered about is covered in a great help section that other add-ons should envy!
I see, and understand, the shock of others who have lost tabs they thought were saved, but I'm very happy with the heartening response of the makers of this add-on. They plan to continue to improve and update this one to make it even better!

Read this! Be warned! Rated 2 out of 5 stars

i highly suggest you use this addon only for saving huge amount of tabs & in combination with the mozilla firefox addon "SessionManager". (i'm not advertising last said addon. i just want to take care of you & your links.)

It seems this addon "OneTab" never creates backups automatically nor there's a successful workarround to recover lost links (in most cases, including version 1.9). that said, it even wouldn't be that bad if "OneTab" would never suffer from losing links, but like reviews from the past & now show, it's opposite. in my case, i added "OneTab" in February 2015 & today (April 2015) i realized that the "OneTab" tab didn't show over 1.000 links like i had before, but 0. let me repeat: "OneTab" suddenly was completely empty. apparently, next step was to visit the reviews site from this addon, this website. but the only solution to recover lost links was about a recovery of a single file called "store.json" by right clicking it, left clicking properties & let windows search for older versions. but as i never had such a function in windows, i guess this only works when your whole system is on a server like it's often the case on work - but not at home...
so to come back to 'Why?':
because when you suddenly lose your links on "OneTab" they are gone! simple like that! which brings us to:

how to use said addon "SessionManager" with this addon "OneTab"?
quite easy! just install both addons first. then, before you place all your tabs inside "OneTab" use "SessionManager" to save all current tabs into a file on your local drive. this file can be loaded with "SessionManager" at a later date whenever you want. store it to a safe place & if you want, just deactivate "SessionManager" to keep amount of active addons as low as possible. now put all tabs inside "OneTab" & don't add further links. after some time, if you have too much tabs again, enable "SessionManager" & save another file to your local drive. keep the old session files!
if - or should i say when - the day of doom knocks at your door & tells you that you've lost all linked tabs from "OneTab", simply reactivate "SessionManager" & load all the linked tabs you stored once. this way you can load all your sessions, one after the other, and add them one by one to "OneTab" again.
this addon saved my life today, because back in february, i did exactly the same i have written above: right before using "OneTab", i saved a session with "SessionManager" just to be sure & after creating the "OneTab" tab with all the links, i never again added links.

Just registered to rating this addon 1 star. Lost all my pages for four time. Windows Restore solution doesn't work. Don't be a fool like me.

Really annoying, this is the second time one tab has opened up completely empty! I thought it was something I had done but it opens up for weeks at a time, all tabs remain then when you relax and stop saving your tabs in your bookmarks, Onetab decides to mess about again and deletes the whole lot!!

OneTab's features are perfect for managing a large number of tabs that have to be open for several days. I haven't had any problem with disappearing tabs. The "export tab" feature displays a list of the URLs of the tab. It can be copied and pasted into a regular text file for extra backup.

Lost all my tabs. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I tried the store.json method. No file even there. I think I'm done this time. I wish I could stay but this addon isn't reliable. I'm going to use recuva on that folder to see if I can find the store.json file. I'll update if I get anything else to help the community. Too bad the devs aren't much of help.

Good thing I keep a backup copy of my OneTab store.json Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I started out using Tab Grenade for saving my tab links on Firefox, then I saw
that there was a OneTab add-on for Firefox, so I switched. I was familiar with
OneTab on the Chrome browser and there are some things I liked better about
it. For one, it seems to be more actively developed (it has a more recent
update). For another, my saved links show up more reliably in a pinned tab.
Lastly, it stores its data in a json file, which is smaller and easier to
access than the sqlite database Tab Grenade uses.

However, OneTab is not without its serious faults. Today I opened my tab with
the OneTab-saved links and it was empty. Contrary to what the developer says
("This does *not* mean that you have lost them. They are still stored in
Firefox, but something is preventing the OneTab extension from loading
properly."), I *did* lose my data. I went to the folder where "store.json" is
located and the file had a size of roughly 100 bytes. My saved version is
approx. 52 kbytes, so yeah, information was lost. I closed Firefox, copied over
my saved "store.json", re-opened Firefox and was back in business. However,
had I not saved a copy of "store.json", I would have been a very unhappy
camper! I am using version 36.0.1 of Firefox, by the way.

3rd time I lost my links Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It's been the 3rd time I lost my tabs from Onetab, in the span of 3-4 months. As the core feature is not working reliably, and seeing this is a recurring problem, I feel the need to gives some feedback.

I've been reading the workaround solution for windows OS. Is there something similar on Mac OS to revert the store.json file to its previous version?

* NOT SAFE TO USE * Loses Tab Data Reliably Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Although the Developers state:

"A small minority of people are seeing a blank page instead of their OneTab tabs. This does *not* mean that you have lost them. They are still stored in Firefox, but something is preventing the OneTab extension from loading properly."

It is much, much more than a "Small Minority". Everyone who uses this Add-On will have the Awful experience of Losing ALL their "Locked", "Named", "Starred", whatever... Tabs! Where does the "Data" go? Where is the "Tab" data stored? There needs to be an Auto Backup built in to this OneTab Add-On for it to be safe to Use.

It would be an Awesome Add-On if not for this stupid bug.

After Losing a couple hundred or so Tabs, I now "Share" my List as a Web Page. That way I at least have All my Tabs saved as Links on a Web Page that looks like a OneTab List. I now would like to get an Add-On that will Open ALL the Links on a Web Page... until I find a way to make a backup of my OneTab List.

I can't give a Broken Add-On any kind of "Star" Rating.

Does anyone have a Tip about an Add-on that will load all the links on a web page into individual Tabs?

Does anybody know how to backup the OneTab data? ...or have a Firefox workaround of any kind?

Confirm that it's broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Regularly loose all links after a restart, do not trust onetab for your bookmarking.

This plugin is useless as tits on a boar hog!!! EVERY damn time something (anything) updates it loses every damn link I put into it! Time to get rid of this broken foot!

about:config Rated 5 out of 5 stars

does not work with links to similarity of:
about:sync-Tabs or about:config and.....
but great expansion))

An excellent idea Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful. I hope you keep it going.

Massive dissapointment Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Just biked in to say my singificant other lost her large collection of links. We are on linux so I doubt I'll be able to recover them. An extension I suggested to her so se could better manage a plethora of tabs wound up bitting me in the a**. Anyway best of luck to the developer in fixing this deal breaker of an issue as I think this a must as far as addons go. Oh well.
