How do I send multiple (or all) tab links to an email recipient all at once?

Posted

While researching online I often have multiple tabs open for different sites related to the subject at hand. Quite often I have need of saving some or all of those sites for later or sending them to an email recipient. To do this I have generally used the "Email Link" option under the File menu to start a new email message to myself or others in my default email client with the active tab link, then copied/pasted links from the other open tabs one-by-one into the email message and added text descriptions for each.

What I would REALLY appreciate is an "Email Multiple Links" option in the File menu that would allow me to simultaneously pull the links from all, or selectively some, of the open tabs into an email message without all of the manual copying and pasting.

If such functionality is already available in Firefox I have not located it. Please let me know. If it isn't, please accept this as a suggestion for an added feature in the next update to your program.

Thank you.

Send a list of browser tab URLs to email or the clipboard Not compatible with Firefox Quantum

You need to find something like this. Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

@FredMcD Thank you. That was helpful. The "Send-Tab-URLs add-on would have been nearly just what I'm looking for if it were compatible with the most recent versions of Firefox. I was, however, after about 15 minutes of looking, able to find the "URLs List" add-on which at least provides a usable list of all the tab URLs in a given window.

That's about 1/5 of the functionality I am hoping to find. The biggest thing it doesn't do is grab the one-line page description for each URL like the the "Email Link" option does to fill the Subject line.

I hope Mozilla pays attention to suggestions like mine and considers them for future program updates. I'm no fan of add-ons in general because maintaining them through ongoing FF updates can be a headache. Mozilla obviously recognizes the common need to email a link since they have had that option available for as long as I can remember. And they certainly must fully recognize the usefulness of having multiple URLs open in tab form since that too has been part of FF for a very long time, so it seems like it would be a no-brainer that the ability to email multiple tab URLs at once should have also been added some time back.

Sorry there is nothing better out there. When Movilla gave us the new Firefox, many add-ons were no longer useful.
