Tabmix Plus FF extension not possible to backup - FIXED -

Postby harrismail » Fri Sep 02, 2011 3:37 am

Hi I've just discovered OPIE and it works for most extensions except my favourite - TAB Mix Plus

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... -mix-plus/

Is this an extension that can't be included in the backup process because it has its own settings structure?

The reason OPIE can't find the preferences is because the preference root in about:config is in the form of "extensions.tabmix" instead of "extensions.tabmixplus".

You can tell OPIE the correct preference root in OPIE > Configure> Tab Mix Plus > Preference root. Just changed it from "(Unknown)" to "extensions.tabmix" (double click the value to change it).

Thanks Chuck - you're a star!

And after a bit more testing with FEBE I realised that this was what I had been searching for as it backs up literally "everything" (in backup profile mode) so I can migrate all my settings and customisations to Firefox on a new PC.. It did the trick wonderfully and restored "everything" including Tab Mix Plus and all extensions plus each of their individual settings.

A big thanks from here in the UK..
