TooManyTabs Advanced Configuration & Setting

Backup & Restore TooManyTabs

All the tabs of TooManyTabs are stored in a bookmark folder called "TooManyTabs (Do Not Delete)". To view the folder, go to "Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks". You can use the backup & restore tools provide by Firefox to backup & restore tabs in TooManyTabs. Note there is no way to backup or restore an individual folder using this tool.

Micro manage TMT rows

Normally the manage tab in TMT options is sufficient, but if prefer more micro management. You can set the preference "" to "false", then you can manage (delete/order) your TMT rows in your bookmarks Library. Please set the preference back to "true" after you finish the management.

Can I rename of the root directory "TooManyTabs (Do Not Delete)" of TooManyTabs?

Yes. You can go to "Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks" and rename the "TooManyTabs (Do Not Delete)" Folder to another name. The changes would be reflected in the add-on immediately (i.e. There is no need to restart Firefox). Under most situations, this is unnecessary.

How to change the maximum size of tabs in TooManyTabs?

To decrease the size of tabs in TooManyTabs, in your url bar, type "about:config" then enter "toomanytabs" to filter the preferences. Change the preference "" to any value under 250. **The add-on will ignore any size larger than 250.

How to clear all data if you uninstall TooManyTabs?
  • After uninstall TMT using the addon manager, restart Firefox
  • TMT data is stored in the Library > "Unsorted Bookmarks" > "TooManyTabs (Do Not Delete)" folder. Please do not remove this folder in case you are just performing a downgrade.
  • To clear all data , just remove the TMT folder. You might also want to backup before you delete the folder (Use backup & save to a file).
  • Go to about:config, search for toomanytabs, then reset all preference that has been modified.
Micromanage your TMT tabs & Row
  • Go to about:config, search for this preference "", set the value to false
  • Go to Unsorted Bookmarks > TooManyTabs (Do not delete). 
  • To manage your rows, you can order the rows (folders), delete or rename a row directly, the changes are reflected immediately on TMT. 
  • For managing TMT tabs, you can drag and drop TMT tab (a bookmark) between rows, delete or rename them. You can also use bookmark addons like SortPlaces that sorts your bookmarks in different ways. 
  • For searching, searching TMT tabs is like searching bookmarks. However, unless you open the tab via TMT, the sessions and tabs state cannot be restored by directly clicking on the bookmarks.

Using TooManyTabs with AnyColor

In earlier versions of TooManyTabs, users with AnyColor add-on installed will find that TMT became stretched (or expanded) when mouse cursor is over the TMT toolbar. Since TMT 1.0.0, this issue is fixed, however due to effect of AnyColor, the color of TMT tab cannot be changed.

Notes: When AnyColor is enabled without restarting Firefox, you may need a second restart to resolve the conflicts.

How much memory has TooManyTabs saved for me?

It depends on what kind of websites are stored in TooManyTabs. Memory consumption is different for different websites. For example, some heavily scripted websites would require more memory and may lead to memory leak when the sites are kept idle for a long time. Therefore, the actual memory saved still varies even the same number of tabs are stored in TooManyTabs.

What is the difference between TooManyTabs tab (TMT tab) and a Firefox tab (FF tab)?

TooManyTabs help you to save CPU time and memory. When a tab is stored in TooManyTabs, the following will happen:

The page is unloaded and the script will stop running (in contrast with a normal tab); Tab History and scroll position are remembered;When TMT tab is open again, the web page will load from disk cache if it is available. Tab history and scroll position are also restored. (*Only for unpinned tabs)
