Massive dissapointment Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

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.

I love this addon and *want* to give it 5 stars. But the cake is a lie. It's a trap. Danger, Will Robinson!

The addon works well and is wonderful for a week or two. Then -- usually when I'm on deadline and really need those darn tabs -- it suddenly throws them all away and gives me a blank page. There's no backup, no restore, no recourse. Just a lot of lost work.

Yes, I've tried the company's recommended "fix" of disabling every other addon in Firefox and restarting. It doesn't work.

This isn't a bug report. It's a review that includes reference to a *known* problem that makes the addon completely unreliable and unusable. And that sucks, because I really loved this addon.

Hi, sorry about this. Did you try the windows restore method? Pasted below:


Instructions for restoring tabs using the built in Windows system restore mechanism:

1. Close Firefox.
2. Go to the store.json file located at C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\Profile Folder (will have a long string of characters for a name; one with most data in it is probably your active one)\jetpack\extension@one-tab.com\simple-storage.
3. Once there, right click on the store.json file and select Properties. Click the Previous Versions tab and wait for Windows to show you older versions of the file.
4. Highlight the version of store.json from the last date before you lost your tabs. Click the Copy button and save it to the folder you navigated to, overwriting the current store.json. I copied it twice, once to the desktop just to be safe, before opening Firefox again.
5. Open Firefox and your OneTab tabs should be listed again!

This add-on has never been bad.

I'm very sad now :( Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

I've lost my tabs :(
There isn't any option to auto backup tabs.
Consider not to use this addon.

Lost all my tabs, store.json file is empty.

upd. Unfortunately "Windows Restore" was disabled :(

Hi, did you try the Windows Restore suggestion we've made to the previous commenter? This should recover your tabs.

Love it! Lean and mean!

It's as usefull as unreliable safety rope - good only when you want to hang yourself up :-( Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

It's sad that all these people who reported that this otherwise usefull add-on is UNRELIABLE were right. And the recipe for recovery in the authors' description of course doesn't work.
I've lost about 300 very valuable links - don't follow me :-(

Hi, we're sorry about this, we're very close to releasing a new version now. Did you try the following steps?

While opening a lot of tabs, there is a button to close in the open tabs is hidden.
So, I want to add it to close the tab that is currently open to the menu of onetab.
Thank you.

Not reliable, lost all my bookmarks. Don't know if it is a Firefox problem or a OneTab problem but I am giving up on Firefox and going back to Google Chrome.

This addon is worthless... Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

I have used this add-on for several months now, and all I can say is, don't trust it. It randomly and arbitrarily loses saved bookmarks and does not allow you to "save" them to an offline file or database so you're at the mercy of it's whim. Do yourself a favor and don't frustrate yourself.

Not reliable in Firefox, not recommended Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

Have used this in Chrome and Opera with success, but Firefox version is not reliable and seems to lose saved tabs without a notice. Whether it's due to crashes or what not, but the OneTab tab is emptied more than often. Does it have something to do with opening various sessions, I don't know. I wish this would work, because Suspend Tab hasn't been working in firefox since 3x.x something which used to be my memory saver when I had opened multiple tabs. Hope this would get fixed soon.

FATALLY FLAWED Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

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.

Hi, we're sorry this has happened - we're very close to releasing a new version.

This is not "sloppy design" - it is a flaw in Firefox's storage handling. The Chrome version of this extension has a consistent 5* rating.

You are very likely to get all of your tabs back if you restore a backup of the store.json file. We've pasted below rljackson's instructions for restoring this using the built in Windows system restore mechanism:

1. Close Firefox.
2. Go to the store.json file located at C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\Profile Folder (will have a long string of characters for a name; one with most data in it is probably your active one)\jetpack\extension@one-tab.com\simple-storage.
3. Once there, right click on the store.json file and select Properties. Click the Previous Versions tab and wait for Windows to show you older versions of the file.
4. Highlight the version of store.json from the last date before you lost your tabs. Click the Copy button and save it to the folder you navigated to, overwriting the current store.json. I copied it twice, once to the desktop just to be safe, before opening Firefox again.
5. Open Firefox and your OneTab tabs should be listed again!

I had reviewed this addon with three stars. Not all of the functions worked, but the core function did. Tonight I open my browser and it had lost probably 200 bookmarks. It's a serious problem for me. I have dropbox backup all the json files from the jetpack folder, but even restoring from a previous version of onetab's json failed to work. I have no idea why not but losing all those sites I no longer have faith in the addon and am done with it.

Reply to Developer:

Yes, I only tried to restore the "store.json" file. It definitely got a few of my tabs back. Maybe eight or nine of around 200 (the oldest ones). I know I restored the correct file because, a) it did restore a handful of tabs, and b), it resides in a folder called "extension@one-tab.com".

Thanks for your reply, but I have switched to Zotero which is less convenient but hopefully a little more robust. My machine didn't even crash - my links in OneTab disappeared for seemingly no reason at all. Lost a lot of work.

Hi, sorry to hear this. Did you try restoring only the "store.json" file? This should definitely get your tabs back. If you try opening that restored file in your text editor, you should see that the tabs are safely stored inside it.

It is also possible that you may have restored the store.json for a different extension, instead of OneTab's store.json.

We're working on a new version of OneTab for firefox and it should be released soon.

Excellent Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

LOVE this extension. I'm the sort of person who tends to end up with 100+ tabs open, so this is one of my most-used extensions. I haven't had any issues with it, though I don't use it for any sort of long-term bookmark storage. I mostly use it when I'm shopping or something similar where I'm opening lots of tabs to compare things. I open a bunch, toss them into OneTab, repeat, then go through them a few at a time. I also use the share as webpage option to share tabs between home and work or to send a bunch of links to a friend.

To the people complaining about lack of backups - you can just use "share as webpage" and bookmark that page or email it to yourself or whatever. If you're wanting something a little more permanent that will let you toss a whole pile of tabs into it, try TooManyTabs. That one stores your tab list inside your bookmarks so as long as you have your bookmarks backed up, your tabs are backed up too.

I have one feature request - the extension site says you're working on multi-computer syncing. I guess what I'm thinking of is similar to that. I'll be at work, shopping or something, have 75 tabs open, then have to go home. Usually I use the share as webpage feature, then send that page to my Xmarks or Pocket, so I can open it at home. My request would be for there to be a way for me to take that shared page and convert it back into a regular OneTab where I can rearrange/delete tabs from the list.

BUG GRAVE | Não Confiável | Not reliable Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

No início eu havia adorado a extensão. Usei por muitos meses, até perder +600 Links adicionados do nada. Abri o Firefox e tudo desapareceu completamente, sem nenhuma forma de recuperar. Tentei os recursos citados por algumas pessoas mas meu Windows não usa Restauração de Sistema e minhas coisas pessoais ficam em um Hd separado criptografado, Meu Firefox é portátil e a extensão OneTab não tem Backups do seu arquivo Store como o Firefox tem dos Favoritos. Estou Super Arrependido de não ter feito Backup desses Links já que a extensão tem essa Opção, como nunca deu problema, nunca nem me preocupei ou sequer vi isso. Mais triste ainda estou com o Suporte que nem sequer respondeu pra dar alguma solução.

At first I had loved the extension. Used for many months, until losing +600 links added for no reason. Open Firefox and everything disappeared completely, with no way to recover. I tried the resources cited by some people but my Windows does not use System Restore and my personal things get in an encrypted separate Hd, my Firefox is portable and OneTab extension does not have backups of your Store file as Firefox has the Favorites. I am very Regretful for not having done Backup these links as the extent has this option as never gave problem, never even bother or even seen it. Sadder still got the support that did not even reply to give some solution.

Loved this add-on until I opened Firefox today and my over 400 tabs were gone! But I did manage to get them back. After trying everything else and failing here is what worked for me (on Windows 7). I think you must have System Restore active for this to work:

1. Close Firefox.
2. Go to the store.json file located at C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\Profile Folder (will have a long string of characters for a name; one with most data in it is probably your active one)\jetpack\extension@one-tab.com\simple-storage.
3. Once there, right click on the store.json file and select Properties. Click the Previous Versions tab and wait for Windows to show you older versions of the file.
4. Highlight the version of store.json from the last date before you lost your tabs. Click the Copy button and save it to the folder you navigated to, overwriting the current store.json. I copied it twice, once to the desktop just to be safe, before opening Firefox again.
5. Open Firefox and your OneTab tabs should be listed again! I hope this helps someone. Now I am loving this extension again. I just have to remember to backup my tabs to a text file until this is fixed.
