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 "extensions.TooManyTabs@visibotech.com.tmtFolderReadonly" 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.
