This add-on has saved my butt more times than I can count. About half of the time Firefox crashes, it cannot restore the tabs last open on its own. And since I usually have at least 20 tabs open, of articles/etc. that I DON'T want to lose, it has always been quite the experience whenever it happened.
But with session manager, I believe it only happened once that it was unable to "recover the last session" (as it will ask you upon starting after a crash). And even then, I was able to load the session saved shortly before the crash.
All browsers should have something like that! (Or at least have tabs crash protection that ALWAYS works)
Great addon but not working with Aurora 24.0a2.
Greatest addon ever. Effortlessly remembers all my sessions, the latest being 157 tabs. So useful for those who use ff to manage their lives.
Awesome! I do a lot of research about different topics and this addon allows me to save a session per topic. Just what I was looking for. Thanks.
This tool does everything I need to store and reload multiple browsing sessions. It makes my work life a little easier.
The best of the best addon I have used ever. I saved any session with 20 or 25 tabs opened and just copy the session about 200 kb from firefox profile session folder. And open that session from home with all 20 or 25 tabs. Brilliant work. Hugely satisfied
Now my Firefox has nothing less than Opera.
I think it’s better for Session Manager menu to appear in History menu – if possible.
Saving tab sets is a default option in Opera. This is another plug-in that makes Firefox as powerful as Opera.
when FF crashed and started again the oveview of saved sessions doesnt have the groups in it and the groups cant be enabled too. Thats not good when groups to tabs connections are broken. Then the tabs have groups with numbers... one cant see this without the groups.
it is realy great usefull and i have a suggestion it is:add a resizable text window directly under buttons of "Select All", "Select None" and "Toggle Selection" in Session Manager form this text window is to write long text in it to comment and describe the selected session so it is related and changed with selecting different session and the user can add notes or comments about the whole session when ever he need after opening the session and during browsing session's tabsI hope it is clear
Bugzilla won't let me log in (with clearly correct, just-created and correctly saved credentials), so I have to report a bug here. Sorry.
When Firefox is started and a session is restored, the foreground tab is not the tab that was in the foreground when the session was saved, but seems to be # tabs to the right of it, where # is the total number of pinned tabs. I'm guessing this is not difficult to fix.
Otherwise, this is a truly great extension!
It works great! Kudos to the programmer. (please enrich your income doors, with flattr,btc,frc etc)
but dos not work since Firefox 20 in any version 0.8.0.1, 0.8.0.5 or 0.8.0.5pre.
I'm using Windows XP and Firefox 20.0.1 actual.
Hope you can fix that.
Must-have add-on for Firefox! It makes Firefox my beloved browser!
@mentallurgthere IS a forum, and guess what? the link is a few lines above.
and a new profile is a way to check if the extension really is that buggy or if there is a conflict with another addon, which is most likely the case on your system.
and rating the extension with one star just because you have your OWN personal problem with it, is very unfair, to say the least.
i counted my active extensions right now, i have 46 of them. session manager included, and it works just fine. and so it does for other users, except for you obviously.
Session Mgr rocks. Period.
@"mental-lurg": there is not only a forum, but an actively maintained one, too: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=2308889
No idea which tree you're barking up on, but if you just want to rant: you're right, this is the wrong place for that.
Please add compression to session backup files, in a similar fashion on how bookmarks backup are stored. Right now backups rapidly eat my available space.
FF 20b5глючит при открытии браузера с пустой вкладкой отрывает окно с предложением восстановить ошибочную сессию. в настройках "количество сохранённых сессий" - 0.
если было закрытие с не пустой вкладкой данное предложение не последует.в FF19 этого не было
Отличное приложение! Раньше не пользовался Mozilla потому, что не было менеджера сессий, как в Opera.
Спасибо Session Manager, теперь Mozilla радует!
Благодаря Session Manager за год у меня появилось только 10 закладок. Они не нужны. Всё хранится в сессиях. Это гораздо удобнее. Если занимаюсь какой-то большой темой, то за один раз сохраняю 250 вкладок. Благодаря этому вся тема раскрыта полностью и в динамике.
Меню Session Manager немного перегруженное, может даже напугать:) но я им пользуюсь только для сохранения, а все сессии открываю, переименовываю, группирую, удаляю и прочее через Total Commander.
Установил автосохранение сессий через 30 минут и теперь любой крах не страшен.
Великолепное приложение. Если перестанет поддерживаться, снова уйду на Opera=)
I started using Session Manager on Chrome. It is without doubt the most useful plugin / addon created for browsers. Really all browsers should have this build in. I tend to have around 20-30 tabs open at any one time, and without Session Manager I would never shut down my PC!
Works surprisingly well (I'm surprised each time at the amount of thought put into the small details). Never encountered a bug or glitch. The interface is intuitive and works well for me.
It has more functions than I need, but most importantly, it saves browsing sessions with their history (meaning- it remembers the state of the windows/tabs so that the forward/back button is still active when they are reloaded).This way, it makes browsing more organized and helps me focus on the task at hand, as I can save other windows for later, instead of having them clutter the workspace and constantly distract me.
Muito funcional esse complemento! Funciona perfeitamente com o meu DDA. (Distúrbio de Déficit de Atenção). E é verdade!
Needs a lot of place on my HD (up to 7 GB), every backup needs a lot of time (up to 5 minutes) so I'm sitting and waiting in front of my pc, it's not possible to do something other, because the SM is working and working and working on the HD and spending all the resources of my PC. But the badest thing are the lot of crashes of firefox every day :-(((
After turning-off MS, I had no more problems like this !
