How I export my profile data from an extension?
How I export my profile data from an extension? An extension I'm using isn't working properly and I'd like to export my data before reinstalling it. It's called onetab.
The menu on the top right corner is gone, so how can I export my saved data (or tabs)?

You want to export your data from the extension Onetab? Honestly I don't think it will work. I've used Onetab before and it doesn't work that smoothly, it crashes often and doesn't work. Also, reinstalling an extension on Firefox doesn't mean refreshing Firefox, your tabs and data will still be there. The only thing changed will be the extension is brand new. If you want to do it, I recommend that you just keep your tabs open, reinstall Onetab, and then use Onetab again.
Can you access that data via the about:debugging page (This Firefox) ?
Did you try to disable and re-enable this extension ?
You can consider to contact the OT creator for support.
I've tried to copy the data from extension storage by using about:debugging and it's being truncated. It won't copy all the data as it cuts off after a certain amount of characters.
I copied the state variable into a text editor, and it didn't paste in the whole value of the variable.
Disabling then enabling the extension again doesn't work.
I tried contactig the creator of the extension from their website but their website says they get so many emails that they can't reply to everyone.

Did you try to right-click state in the right panel -> Copy ?
Yes I did try that earlier and it was being truncated. Look at the gif video below.
I've fixed the problem by doing some programming to create a php script or website software that can solve the problem. Here it is.
