OneTab has not be repopulating with all of my saved websites lately (last 5-6 days). It has eventually come back but today, its not happening. I have a tab that is my OneTab tab that has my saved websites in it. That tab exists still but it is empty. None of my saved websites are there. Also, the OneTab icon has disappeared. There is a space where it used to be and if I click on that space it goes to the description of OneTab so it is still (sort of) there, but... How do I get OneTab to work again. I don't want to lose the list of websites I saved. Thanks.

There have been more reports that the OneTab suddenly stopped working after the latest OT update. What worked for most was disabling and re-enabling the OT extension.
Oh. My. God. And, so, this means.... I will lose all my tabs? all my saved sites? OMG. Is this the only solution? If this happens with every update, then, ... um... Huh? why am I using this? I was using this because I NEEDED to SAVE these websites. So... OneTab basically doesn't save websites. So - why - does Mozilla support this add-on? I am a professional person; I am NOT a techie. I relied on your expertise. Time to make a big change I guess.
So... You have KNOWN that this add-on dumps all of its sites every time you do an update??? Because, you say, this has happened in the past. ??? And YET, you continue to support it as one of the add-ons you recommend? AND knowing all of that, you did an update, knowing OneTab would crap out, and you didn't give me ANY NOTICE???? What the hell. And your response is 'oops'? 'Gee, sorry.' ??? OMG. Asshole much?
This is not about Firefox updating if that is what you are thinking, but is about the latest OneTab update from the past week that seems to be causing issues as you can read in the OneTab reviews I linked above.
It sometimes happens that an extension update is causing issues and its author need to address this with another update. This doesn't happen often and this is unexpected.

I think that the OT extension has a backup feature according to its description on the Add-ons page, so you should that option to make sure you do not lose your settings in case something goes wrong or you otherwise have profile issues or need to refresh Firefox.
Okay. I apologize. I will try your suggested fix. Thanks.
