- by Neil Sinclair, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5i'm always downloading recipes, opening each individual dish in its own tab. it slowed my pc down, sometimes crashing firefox, more often just causing lags. thanks to onetab, i'm able to keep all my successes and not-so-successfuls organized and available the next time someone makes a request. and no more lags! <3

"Information about your tabs is never transmitted.
...except with the 'share as a web page' feature.
...oh, and with Google."
Yeah I can totally see how "information about my tabs is never transmitted", because as we all know, sharing things with Google is as good as not sharing them at all.
Come on guys, Google will only know exactly which sites you visit. Not which specific file you're looking at. Don't be so picky.
What a load of absolute BS.
- by NomDeFox, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5I've been using this for awhile, love it.
Only problem is at first I used it like it should be but NOW I still have 200+ tabs open AND this one...
...that's my fault though.
- by Firefox user 15742414, 2 months agoRated 1 out of 5The default behaviour of sharing tab history is clearly a glaring oversight of the team. Intentionally infringing on privacy or not, the feature is obviously a privacy issue that needs to be addressed.
1. can users who've perhaps unwittingly shared their tab history delete them if they lose access to the computer that they used to create them?
2. can users easily see a list of all the tab lists they've shared?
3. do the shared links ever expire? Is there a default expiry?
- by MrEd, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5I found this solution to my browser sucking up resources about a year or so ago.
I run/allow it in private browsing mode, never an issue!!!!!
I have never had an issue until today!
Firefox now opens two windows instead of one as of tonight when I get home 3-5-21.
Disabling extension fixes it, enabling reproduces it.

- by Ouro Tayuun, 2 months agoRated 2 out of 5Extension desperately needs better handling of Private windows. OneTab will not on load Private windows, even if given permission to run on them.
Additionally, it can attempt to open itself in an already open private window when selecting "Display OneTab", resulting in a mostly blank but completely useless page.
Finally, left clicking the OneTab icon in the browser toolbar saves all tabs in the current window to OneTab, then closes the window without asking for confirmation. While I do not believe this to be *good* behavior in principle, it's also worth noting that the top option in the menu when *right* clicking the icon is "open OneTab", and it'd be reasonable to expect that to be the default, left click behavior.
Ideally, I'd like OneTab to understand the difference between a private tab/window and a normal tab/window, or at the very least include a "restore/open tab(s) in a private window" option. Hell, failing that, I'd accept a version that commits to the private browsing sandbox: onetab saves you tabs in a private tab/window, and closing out your private session completely wipes it.
In short: addon falls short if your, uh, heavy memory usage tabs are in private browsing windows, suffers from some minor interaction woes, and could use some options to better define its behavior (specifically that left-click on toolbar issue and auto-closing windows (would like option to keep window open with sole OneTab tab open, for example))
Developer responseposted 2 months agoThanks for taking the time to make a detailed report. You're right, we had not tested private window interactions enough with this latest release. We've just fixed this in the latest 1.51 release.
We have long wondered whether we'd be over-complicating things to allow tabs to be restored (either individually or as a group) into a private browsing window. So far we have decided not to over-complicate the user interface with private window options, but please do let us know the scenarios in which you would find it useful to restore tabs to a private window, so that we can re-think the trade-off between UI complications and this functionality.
