What is TST Bookmarks Subpanel?
TST Bookmarks Subpanel is a specialized Firefox add-on that creates a clone of the Firefox's bookmarks sidebar panel for the Tree Style Tab's subpanel. Due to certain security reasons or limitations of the WebExtensions API, users can't open non-regular URLs or drag anything to the bookmarks subpanel from anywhere except tabs in TST's sidebar. All bookmarks are displayed with the same icon.

Summary

Tree Style Tab addon is now a sidebar panel, so you cannot use other sidebar panels in parallel, e.g. bookmarks. (See also the bug 1328776 - Provide ability to show multiple sidebar contents parallelly) So TST 3.1.0 and later has the SubPanel API to embed arbitrary contents below tabs as a "subpanel" from other helper addons.

This addon is a clone of Firefox's bookmarks sidebar panel for TST's subpanel. Due to security reasons or limitations of WebExtensions API itself, there are some restrictions:

  • Impossible to open non-regular URLs like about:config. (This is a restriction of WebExtensions API.)
  • Impossible to drag anything to the bookmarks subpanel from elsewhere (except tabs in TST's sidebar).
  • All bookmarks are shown with same icon. (This is a restriction of WebExtensions API. See also: the bug 1315616 - Give extensions access to cached favicon URLs)

The exact solution for the most niche problem I've ever had at work. I only wish I could pin certain bookmarks to the bottom the way the new tab shortcuts are laid out, it'd be perfect!
