Do you have too many tabs open in Firefox? Maybe you want to start closing them out to reclaim browser speed or reduce clutter? But before you do, you’ll want to save them all so you don’t accidentally lose out on any important ones.

In Firefox, click the three-bar menu to the upper-right and then select Options. Choose the General tab on the left sidebar and look for the Home Page entry. If there’s a URL listed here, you should copy and paste it somewhere else to temporarily back it up.
Once it’s safe, click the use Current Pages button to add the URL from every tab into the Home Page box. Click inside the field and press Ctrl + A to select all the text, then Ctrl + C to copy it. Then you can paste it into Notepad or Word to have a list of all URLs. Each one is separated with a pipe (|) symbol. Don’t forget to replace your proper Home Page when done!
You could use an extension to do this, but there’s no need to install anything for this method. For more tips like this, check out the best ways to manage lots of tabs in Firefox.
