Perfect for multiple profiles Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Use to switch between multiple concurrent profiles. Also use Session Manager to manage/group multiple backup sessions(tabs and tab groups) within each profile. On top of that have Tab Groups re-enabled via add-on, and finally use Tab Groups Helper to group and manage multiple tabs and tab groups. All working well together, but disable automatic add-on updates as it is a finely tuned setup. Better to update to newer add-on versions after they have been well and truly tested.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Great add-on, very helpful developer... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
To use Tab Groups Helper in Palemoon there a couple of caveats, otherwise everything is working as of v26.0.2:
1/ Do not install the Firefox version of Tab Groups by Quicksaver. Instead go to the Palemoon Add-ons page and follow the link from there. It will be version 0.2 by Mozilla.
2/ Do not install v1.0.1 or v1.0.5 of Tab Groups Helper. Most of the options, context menus and button menus are missing making it unusable, plus it may crash the browser as it did for me.
I reverted to v1.0.2 and everything is working perfectly.
Reviewing the reviews... Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Specifically to Aga. This is not a free service. That is the entire point. There is no longer any free service, so why do they bother pretending there is. They should just pull the free option completely and just charge, or else get out of Mozilla add-ons community.
As for your review on other people's gripes about the not-free anonymox, well you know where you can shove that. Every complaint I have read is legitimate.
This now costs an ADDITIONAL $70 every year, on top of every other "must have" internet service. If you cannot see that there is not enough value in Anonymox to justify that, then more fool you. Since you pay $6 for a coffee, it's obvious that fools and their money are easily parted.
FATALLY FLAWED Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Do NOT use this Add-on. You are putting all of your eggs in one very flimsy basket. You stand to lose 100s or 1000s of precious links to information that you will never remember.
The developers DO NOT CARE,since this problem has been present since October 2014 and neither the data storage bug or the sloppy design has been addressed.
There is NO automatic backup of your data. You would need to export your data at least on a daily basis in order to be sure it is secure.
The lose all links "feature" has been present since October 23rd 2014, and yet the developers still do not acknowledge that this is a MAJOR problem.
Even though the problem has to do with Firefox itself, a well designed automatic backup would have prevented any data loss.
I can predict that the developers will change the way they store the data from SimpleStorage to IndexedDB, but will not fix the sloppy design which risks all of your essential data links by automatically saving a backup of your data.
26/01/15 Update to developer response:
Considering the value this data is likely worth to any user of OneTab, I stand by my review. Sloppy design due to no automatic backup of valuable data at risk. Even you think that OneTab (and Firefox) are working perfectly, you should ALWAYS have a backup available in case of unforeseeable errors.
In my case I had already checked store.json, and have no backup versions of the store.json file for my current Firefox profile. The current version of store.json, as you know, is completely empty.
Luckily I did have an export, which was missing about 100-200 links. I spent three hours editing 1200 links in my history and patching together 3/4 of the missing links. I have no idea what I have permanently lost, but I know I am missing about 50 links in total.
I am aware that the bug is a Firefox bug with storage handling. My point is that you were first made aware of this flaw in October 2014,and it has taken three months for that report to be taken seriously.
Until there is bulletproof backup of the data at all times I cannot recommend this add-on, and will be informing those I have recommended it to to either remove it, or take extreme measures to protect their data.
