It works well when it works. Before or later you will lose your tab. No big issue for normal users. Absolutely unfit to be used professionally. Use inbuilt Tab Groups instead.

still losing my tabs in firefox Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've read it reported there's a bug that causes loss of tabs in firefox, and i've read it claimed you're sorting this out.. but again, i lose 400tabs.. this is unacceptable.

most user friendly & helpful extension/app whatever Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this is the best tool i have run across in ever. i have everything i need with one click. i am more organized, less frustrated and much more aware of my internet usage. i like that the one tab follows along with my thoughts as i go from one idea to another. thank you firefox. this is a bases loaded home run!

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

OT works great for the most part as long as the number of saved tabs stays relatively low and they're backed up after every change.

Still, I knocked off 3 stars (giving OT a de facto 4/10) due to 6 problems I noticed through continued use of the addon over the past couple months:

*the share-as-webpage option being right above import/export resulted in a misclick and subsequent privacy scare

*import and export being on the same page forced me to sit through the lag as it exported all my tabs when I only wanted to import one more

*the inability to import and export URLs directly to txt or html (preferably without freezing the browser) meant I had to manually copy and paste from the export page after waiting a minute or so for it load

*the export page crashed FF after a few thousand tabs were saved (to cut down on bloating my bookmarks file), which spurred me to keep most of my saved tabs in both a Notepad file and the more robust Chrome version

*the lack of active updates resulted in the addon's eventual incompatibility with FF40.0.2; the icon disappeared from my toolbar and reinstalling 40 caused all my settings and tabs (thankfully there was only one) to be lost

*the narrowly avoided loss of all my OT data wouldn't have happened if OT had reliable import-compatible backup mechanisms

Other than that, OneTab's been a great help in organizing my tabs.

It's my turn now Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I lost all my list 3 times.
Luckily, the 1st time's very big big list was uploaded to it's page and i bookmarked it so it's still available.
But the 2nd and 3rd time are really painful.

Finally i found that basically bookmark is the most reliable.
Simple is the best.

Consider again before you want to try this add-ons, at least backup the list everyday.

I love this Tool. The Frustration of a Frozen browser has a remedy.

I had one hiccup with the Firefox browser, but I restore per the instructions. But I am sure that will be fixed.

oneTab needs fixing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

There is a serious bug that needs fixing. I enjoy using OneTab BUT despite of following the given instructions and advise and updating all necessary software. It is clear THERE IS a SERIOUS BUG.

1. The json file's content is 0 as soon as my firefox crashed.
2. Firefox is currently the latest 38.05 on windows 8 latest.
3. no other plugins were affected EXCEPT oneTAB after a VIRUS SCAN. During this time, the malicious files detected had no association with oneTAB
4. This is the 6th time it has crashed without WARNING.
5. It seems ONETAB is quite Flaky, works very well then ONE DAY, it just falls over.
6. HIGHLY RECOMMEND to export from now on. I left it late because I had no idea it could be SO UNSTABLE.
7. FIX the Damn thing.
8. You can continue to use it BUT use it Cautiiously. YOU ARE WARNED.
9. I am also extremely annoyed that the onetab site http://www.one-tab.com/ cannot be contacted to resolve the situation.

I LOVE YOU GUYS !!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

trust me baby ,this is the best thing I ever used <3 ^_^ this thing saved my life on internet

looks good so far Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am missing an option to chose the sorting order of tabs in the OneTab. At the moment my newest tabs in the group are at the bottom, I think I'd prefer them at the top. thanks

Just switched from Chrome and first addon I rushed to install was One Tab :). Can't imagine using browser without it.

If you rely on this for storing tabs you will lose them. All of them. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon loses all of its data on almost a daily basis. The developer said on December 30, 2014 that they are "soon going to release a new version that uses Firefox's indexed database." Nearly 7 months later with no bug fix is way past being "soon." One star because it wont let me choose zero.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Hi, we're very sorry to hear about this. We've been testing a number of alternate methods to fix this, but we've found it impossible to reproduce the bug as hard as we try, because 99% of users are not having any problems and it's a small minority that are having this severe problem. We're currently implementing the complete cloud sync as the proper solution to this problem, because that's the only way we can absolutely guarantee no data loss.

We would be very grateful however if you could let us know a little about whether you have anything peculiar in your Firefox installation, such as a privacy cleaning addon, multiple profiles, or something which might be interfering with onetab.

If this is happening very frequently for you in particular, there might be a clue in your particular setup which would be enormously useful for us to know so that we could for the first time reproduce this problem. Thanks in advance.

Still FATALLY FLAWED as of June 14th, 2015 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Lost all my One-Tab data again today. I'm done with it unless and until this data loss problem is resolved once and for all. Great concept but unusable until it can be made reliable. For now, use at your own risk!

100タブ以上、ぜんぶ消えました。 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

FF再起動時の自動アップデートの際に起きたので注意。

とてもシンプルで使いやすいだけに残念。
代替のアドオンもないので、こまめにバックアップとります。

Still FATALLY FLAWED after seven months. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The problem with losing all data in the Firefox version of OneTab is still not resolved. First reported in October 2014, acknowledged in November, and again in December 2014. Use it at your peril. Do you really want to lose all 200 - 6000 of your precious bookmarks?

As of June 2015 more than half the reviews since the storage error began (October 2014) are one star with no restore option available to any of these users.

I cannot recommend that you use OneTab in Firefox, UNLESS you implement some regular manual or automatic backup of the data storage file which OneTab uses to store your bookmarks.

This file is called store.json, however there are multiple other versions of it used by other extensions and Firefox itself. Once you locate the correct store.json file you can simply manually copy it to your desktop or somewhere equally handy on regular basis. Before taking a copy you must first ensure that you check that you are copying a populated version of the file and not a blank copy, otherwise you may lose your previous backup. To check if the file is populated or not, just right click and view properties, if the size is greater than a few KB then it is populated. Mine is approximately 100KB for 500+ bookmarks grouped into about 40 groups.

There are other ways to back up this data. Anything that saves your entire profile should also save this store.json file, since it is stored within the profile data area.

The location of the file directly after closing the Firefox profile containing OneTab is:-

'currentuser'/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/'newest profile date modifed folder'/jetpack/extension@one-tab.com/simple-storage

The Good: the UI is excellent and useable. Fonts are also excellent and clear. If OneTab were dependable it would be one of the best extensions available. As it is I am exploring other options.

The Bad: Once the number of bookmarks exceed about 200, the entire process slows down to a snail's pace. It can take up to 30 seconds for a right-click menu to appear with OneTab installed and a large list of bookmarks, whereas right-click is instantaneous with a blank file or with OneTab uninstalled.

Hi, thanks for a very thoughtful writeup. We are close to a solution as part of a big rewrite of this extension that is taking longer than expected.

THE BEST Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Intuitive, elegant, lightweight. Much smarter and more powerful way to reduce memory-usage than tab-suspenders. GREAT.

First impressions Rated 3 out of 5 stars

OneTab seems to be ok, till now no negative experience with loosing tabs.

However I would have preferred another way of working / activating the functions : instead of immediate execution when the Icon is clicked, having the context menu-options which now become available when right-clicking in the window.

As it is now, by error clicking can happen, resulting in everything moved into OneTab. I know, one can restore, but the tab-history is lost.
