How do I save or copy the set of tabs in a window, so I can put into another profile.

Posted

I have 3 profiles, depending on what I'm using Firefox for. Somehow I inadvertently closed a window with a bunch of tabs (even though I have closing warning on. I have an earlier version of this window in another proile. How do I save or copy the set of tabs in a window, so I can put into another profile? (Previously I could set the new window option to be a set of tabs from the current window, copy it, quit and switch profile, then paste it into the preferences and when I opened a new window all the tabs would appear. I inadvertently upgraded fromv 58 to v69 (after 7 hours trying different things, I wasn't able to stop FF from upgrading behind my back, when I would restore an older verison, but that's a different problem), and I can't see how to do what I was able to do before in v69.

Did you try to undo this window close via "History -> Recently Closed Tabs/Windows" ?

You should still be able to do this:

  • "Select All Tabs" in the Tab context menu to select all tabs
    • use Shift + click -> Range of tabs
    • use Command + click -> Individual tab, works as a toggle

Move all selected tabs to a new window via the Tab context menu. Set all tabs in that window as the homepages via Options/Preferences. Copy the current homepage setting to the clipboard. Paste the clipboard content with the home pages in another profile.

You can also use "Send Tab(s) to Device" to send the selected via Sync to another Firefox profile.
