Transfer all opened tabs in browser to a txt file

Suppose we have opened 20 tabs in firefox.
How can I collect all the urls to a txt file to be created in the desktop ?

Best Regards

I was sure that this idea was discussed here just recently, but I cant find it -
does it ring any bells for anyone?

This sends a list of tab urls to clipboard

https://addons.mozil...addon/send-tab-urls/

The BBSS.exe utility that comes with Browser Bunch will make a list from open tabs but it does it via macro and may not handle duplicates.

^^ Yes, OneTab would be brilliant for this and other browsing information capture purposes. I have been trialing it for a couple of weeks, and it's very nifty.   :Thmbsup:

i have been working a lot  :-[
Thanks to everyone  :-*

Send Tabs Urls always send the pinned tabs ?

OneTab have many possibilities.

BTW : Two days ago i lost all my pinned tabs

I recovered because i taked care to collect them in a folder previosly. So i launch with openurl and fixed again.

But where are they really and optional ways to recover ?

see also
Take a list of [...] tabs and create a text file of the links?

Also if any of the methods of copying all open tabs to the clipboard as links will work, then this Howto Geek article shows how to put the links into a text file using the SendTo Menu:

http://www.howtogeek...ia-the-send-to-menu/


Edit: also it is likely a feature in some clipboard utilities.  I am not sure if CHS Screenshot Captor does it but I would be surprised if it didn't.

(I shouldn't speak for other's software)

There's also Powershell (v3+), adapted from StackOverflow:

Code: PowerShell [Select]
  1. Get-Content ~\AppData\R*\M*\F*\P*\*\s*\recovery.js | ConvertFrom-Json | Select -Expand Windows | Select -Expand Tabs | Where { !$_.hidden } | ForEach { @($_.Entries)[-1] } | Select Url >somefile.txt

Output:
Code: Text [Select]
  1. url
  2. ---
  3. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
  4. https://www.donationcoder.com/
  5. file:///D:/My%20Documents/PC.html
  6. http://jsonviewer.stack.hu/
  7. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3674633/how-can-i-get-list-of-open-tabs-in-firefox-via-a-command-line-application


Yes, not as sexy but very simple.

recovery.js keeps the list of current tabs open in JSON format.
