I'm looking for some Firefox (4 or 5) extension to save a group of tabs (better if can be done directly in Panorama view). What I mean by "Save tabs" is not to restore them when Firefox starts.

I always have the browser opened and a LOT of tabs (work and personal life related) eating my RAM. So when I'm not working, I would want a way to save those tabs but keep them closed while I still use Firefox. So when I have to start working again, I will restore that saved tabs back again.

I know I could use something like Read It Later, but I really need a way to say "hey, save this group of tabs and close them". RIL makes me do it per tab, which is annoying since I'm used to have A LOT.

Session Manager is a great add-on that allows you to save your open tabs but I am not sue if it works on Firefox 4/5.

From the page you linked to: Works with Firefox 3.5 - 7.0a1. So should be fine for 4 and 5. – Evan Jul 1 '11 at 4:52
I use it on 4. Not sure about 5. – surfasb Jul 1 '11 at 4:53
Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks – emzero Jul 1 '11 at 18:47

This is built in functionality.

Right click on a tab and choose 'Bookmark all tabs'.

Enter a folder name, e.g. 'session1'.

Now close all tabs - choose one you want to keep open, e.g., right click on the the tab and select 'close all other tabs'.

To restore your tab set, go to bookmarks, go down to the 'session1' folder and select 'Open all in tabs'.

You can now go into bookmarks and delete the 'session1' folder, or keep it for later on.

+1 for the nice workaround. But anyway I find Session Manager easier to mantain several different sessions (with auto-save). thanks anyway! – emzero Jul 1 '11 at 18:46

I typed tabs on the addons website,

There are many you can choose from:

You could use either Mozilla Archive Format firefox addon or you can use SaveALL!
