What is Tab Saver?

'Tab Saver' is a Firefox extension designed to efficiently manage your browser tabs. With Tab Saver, you can effortlessly save the tabs on your current window to reopen at a later time. However, there are some concessions - Firefox's WebExtension API restricts opening privileged URLs directly. Thus, certain URLs, like chrome:, about:, file:///, etc., will open as placeholder pages instead, prompting you to manually copy the link and paste it into the location bar.

WebExtension to manage your tabs. With this extension you can save tabs in current window and open them later.

Caveats Current state of Firefox WebExtension Api restricts opening of privileged urls (such as file:///, chrome:, about:, etc..) so placeholder page will be opened where you can copy link to clipboard and manually paste it into the location bar. Sad.
