How can I grab all links from all opened tabs?

Posted

Hello!

I want to grab all the links from several webpages. How can I do that? I can open them in Firefox, but how do I grab all their links? Can I save all the opened tabs at once and then scan them for specific links? Or do you know any other way? Thanks!

No thanks. This is the most horrible software I have ever tried. It doesn't work and when it does it works horrible. It's ultimate crap. Is there a combination of Firefox extensions or other programs outside wget etc? Thanks

That would be good, but I have eg 100 webpages that I need to scan for links! Can it process them all with one click? It would be a real pain to go through each manually!

No not that I know of. Look in addons/extensions We have tried to help you but there are too many options and there are permissions to consider and those things are up to you to decide.

You can use "Bookmark All Tabs" in the Tab bar context menu to save the links to a bookmarks folder.

And how to process them after I bookmark them all?

  • Drag and drop it into a Firefox Window
  • Find the area that held the folder should make it at the top as Folders do not show.
  • Copy with the mouse the section you want.
  • Open Notepad and paste it.
  • Save as .HTML make sure you have changed settings in View to show hidden file Extensions so you do not make the note pad named watever.html.txt

It is a process but it is the only one that works for all the tabs you want separately.

Or can just backup the bookmarks and they will be there in HTML

Not sure what is going on here but if your not versed in bookmarking or how the process works your going to get more help from other online resources here.

I don't understand what versed is, can you speak with simpler language please? I know what bookmarking is, if that's what you mean? I can bookmark all the webpages I have, but how do I extract their weblinks that are contained in these webpages? If I save all of the webpages in my hard drive, I can use Notepad++'s function to 'search within files' to extract the links. Do you know how to save a number of webpages easily? I can open them in Firefox, but what's next? (they are login-form protected by the way)

I believe you keep failing to understand what I want, although I think I explained it clearly.

I believe I will have to start by explaining the basic terminology so that you understand.

A webpage is opened in a tab in Firefox. That webpage/tab has a specific url. That is NOT the weblink of that webpage. That is the URL of that webpage. Now, inside, in the content of that/any webpage, there are links. Those links have their own urls.

Now, imagine there are many opened tabs/webpages in Firefox. Each of them has several weblinks in its content. What I want is to grab/extract ALL the weblinks from ALL the opened webpages/tabs.

To do that, I imagine, I can save ALL the webpages as HTML files LOCALLY (NOT bookmark them, bookmarking saves ONLY the URL of the webpage and NOT its weblinks inside its content). After I save all the webpages as HTML, I can use an Advanced Text Editor to extract the links. BUT HOW DO I SAVE ALL THE OPENED TABS/WEBPAGES with one click or in batch in Firefox?

Ok, Hi, we have tried to help you even though this is Not a Firefox Issue.

I think you need to look for a program your self on Google or some other forum. The results you are getting here is not what you want so that being said.

We have tried with your Non- Firefox Issue.

You now need to find some other method of fixing your issue.
