Getting URLs of open tabs

Post by rv-2019 » 2020-07-31, 11:17

So I am aware that Palemoon is based on legacy versions of Firefox, but I do not know which directory Palemoon works with especially for open tabs (when installed via an Ubuntu 18.04 LTS repository). I am aware that in Firefox, the user can rely on these to take URLs of open tabs:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/887234/ ... redirect=1

I'm trying to find a similar way to do this in Palemoon.

The method will be similar, but Pale Moon uses sessionstore.js in the profile directory to store the active session and not "recovery.js".
Also, take note that Pale Moon does not obsessively write to this file by default, and the update frequency by default is 60 seconds, so it's definitely not "real-time" or "almost real-time"

I'm sorry to be asking so many questions, but where can the Palemoon and its profile directory be found in a typical binary installation from a repository for Debian or Ubuntu?

I wouldn't know off-hand since I don't use those distros myself, but you can find out the current profile's location from Help -> Troubleshooting Information

The profiles should be under
~/moonchild\ productions/pale\ moon/
somewhere. Normal packages will split the program files into linux-y installation locations for bin libs etc.. But if it is a "repack" it could be all together or split and could be anywhere.

~/.moonchild\ productions/pale\ moon
It's a hidden directory.
And YMMV but on Mint, if you install via repository, the main application goes under /usr/lib/palemoon.
