This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Firefox presumably does this already, since it offers to restore your tabs after an update or a crash. I would expect the information is stored as text: search through your filesystem for files containing key words from the URLs in your current tabs. – pavium Feb 2 '10 at 10:29

Use the URL Lister add-on.

Shows the URLs of all the tabs in a textarea so that it can be copied easily.

URL Lister is very handy, thanks for the tip. However, once your list is saved to a file, you might want to open all of them in tabs, i.e. restore the list. For this task, I made a simple Python script called Its usage is very simple: cat url_list.txt | ./ – Jabba Mar 13 '11 at 17:16

I know it to be the case of foldered bookmarks at least, so that would be a roundabout way of doing it. Simply right-click folder, copy, and then paste into a text file or mail. Then it should generate a list of links.

I think Multiple Tab Handler can do this for you.

There is this module, which can format (a bit) the list if you want : It saved my day, thanks to its developer !
