Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is Save Tabs?
Save tabs is a multi-browser addon that helps you close all tabs with just one click from your browser toolbar. Simply open toolbar popup UI and click on the - Close tabs - button on the top (middle button). In order to restore all close tabs please click on the - Restore tabs - button on top left corner in toolbar popup UI. Within the toolbar popup UI, you will see the list of tabs. You can easily reorder the items in this list to you desired choice. All open tabs will be adapted automatically to the new order. Besides, you can click on the close button in toolbar popup UI to close a single tab (and remove it from the list). If you make any changes in toolbar popup UI, the exact change will appear in all open tabs in your browser, vice versa, once you make any change for open tabs, the toolbar popup UI will see the exact change.
2. What happens when I click on the close tabs button in toolbar popup UI?
When you click on the close tabs button, the addon will close all open tabs except the active one. In other words, the active tab will remain intact once you click on the close tabs button. This is because at least one active tab is necessary for the browser to remain open. The list of tabs is still stored in the memory. So you can restore them back at any time even after you have restarted your browser.
3. How can I download the source code for Save Tabs?
To download the source code for this extension from Chrome Web Store, it is recommended to use Extension Source Downloader. With this addon, you can download the source code as a ZIP or CRX format to your machine. If you want to download the source code from the Firefox addons store, please open the firefox download link (if available) in the Firefox browser and then right-click on the - Add to Firefox - button and select - Save Link As... - item. Choose the destination folder on your machine and then save the file in XPI format. You can then rename the XPI format to a RAR or ZIP file. Some extensions may have a GitHub repo address, which you can use to download the source code as well. But, it may not be the latest version of the addon. Therefore, downloading the source code from the official web stores is the best option as it always gives you the latest version of the addon.
4. What happens when I click on the restore tabs button?
When you click on the restore tabs button, the addon will open all tabs from the memory (toolbar popup list). Please note that, when tabs are already open, nothing happens when you click on the restore tabs button.
5. What happens when I open a new tab in my browser?
When you open a tab in your browser, it will be added to the toolbar popup UI list automatically. Alternatively, when you close a tab in your browser it will be removed from toolbar popup list as well.
6. Are there any settings or options available for this addon?
No, there is not a separate options page available for this addon. Everything you need is placed in toolbar popup UI.
7. How can I reorder tab list in toolbar popup UI?
In order to reorder tab list, please open toolbar popup, then drag and drop an item to your desired choice. The actual tab will be re-ordered as well. Please note that, all tabs must be open for the drag and drop feature to work properly. Otherwise, if tabs are closed, drag and drop feature will not work at all.
8. Why I can NOT see blank tabs in the toolbar popup list?
By default, blank tabs are omitted from the list. This is because blank tabs do not have any information and there is no need to keep track of them when the browser starts or closes. You can always open a blank tab whenever you want.
9. How can I remove a tab from popup toolbar list?
In order to remove a tab from toolbar popup list, please open popup and click on the close button at the right corner for each item. The tab will be removed from the list. Unlike, drag and drop feature, you can remove any tab from the list even if it is not already open.
10. Does this addon has any effect on my browsers performance?
No, this addon has nothing to do with your browsers performance at all. In fact, it can improve performance when you close unwanted tabs. But please keep in mind that, restoring tabs (especially for large numbers) can cause temporarily performance issues in your browser. But once tabs are fully loaded, everything is back to normal again. So please try to keep the number of open tabs as low as possible.
