From DC forum: Re: Firefox Extensions: OneTab is well worth trying out.

^^ 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:

Ejem.

I don't see the option to create inside a folder the urls with the tabs.

There is an indirect way to do it ?

I think what he wants is that all opened tabs are created as individual Internet shortcuts within a folder on the Desktop.

An updated version of the script in this post, now handles Firefox, Pale Moon, IceDragon, Cyberfox, SeaMonkey, and K-Meleon (and more if you add the relevant code).

UPDATED: Generates text file URI list and/or folder with shortcuts.

  206. $xamGUI.ShowDialog() | out-null

Installation/Execution:
  • Extract all files in the archive to a folder
  • Edit JSON2Shortcut.ini so that it has the correct paths for each browser, (you can use full paths or wildcards as long as it can hit the right file)
  • Double-click the shortcut icon to run

DISCLAIMER: Works for me.

Ow I have just seen this interesting thing again

Sometimes I wish to have a head over my shoulders, but fortunately others have this advantage. May be the next year i will try to discover how many times i have made the same question again and again.
