Version 0.7.9.3pre121222 517.9 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

Work around Firefox bug 824107 that cause SessionStore to not restore sessions at startup. I still need to look at this as it could cause problems with my add-on if crash recovery is disabled in the browser and the browser crashes with an auto-save session loaded.

Version 0.7.9.3pre121221 517.9 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

1. Add preliminary support for per window private browsing. Please test thoroughly.

Version 0.7.9.3pre121218 517.3 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

  • Bug 25270 - When restarting, and old browser start preference is set to show windows and tabs from last time, but Session Manager is handling startup. Make sure to show restart prompt if warnOnPrompt is set.
  • Don't modify browser startup preference on shutdown if Session Manager is being disabled or uninstalled.
  • "Gracefully" recover when Session Manager is enabled or re-installed and browser is set to restore window and tabs, but Session Manager is handling startup.
  • Keep track of when Session Manager is disabled or uninstalled for future use.

Version 0.7.9.2.1-signed 516.5 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

  • Updated Session Manager to detect when system is no longer idle in Firefox 16 and up. This was causing Session Manager to perform its background processing when the system was not idle.
  • Empty tab groups (ones with no tabs in them) are removed when saving/loading sessions. This can happen if the user selects specific tabs to save/load.
  • When merging sessions into the same window, tab groups with the same name will be merged. Unnamed groups will not be merged.
  • When merging sessions into the same window causes tab groups to overlap in the tab group view, tile the tab groups so they are all visible.
  • Log when Session Manager is disabled because not initialized or hidden window loads.
  • Log when browser history is set to be cleared on shutdown.
  • Added gl-ES locale and updated existing locales

  • Updated Session Manager to detect when system is no longer idle in Firefox 16 and up. Also work around bug 811459 currently in Firefox 18 and 19.
  • Log when Session Manager disabled because not initialized or hidden window loads.
  • Log when browser history is set to be cleared on shutdown.

Version 0.7.9.2pre121002 507.5 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

  • Empty tab groups (ones with no tabs in them) are removed when saving/loading sessions. This can happen if the user selects specific tabs to save/load.

Version 0.7.9.1pre20120909 505.9 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

  • Fixed issue where Session Manager's crash recovery handling would not work if user set the browser to clear the browser history on exit.
  • Fix for wrong EOL character being used in OS X.
  • Changed the keyboard modifier for opening selected window/tabs in Session Manager load session menu from CTRL+click to ALT+click.
  • Added ability to select multiple tabs in Session Manager load session menu by using CTRL+click and/or Shift+click combinations. Use the toggle selection button to toggle the checkmarks for the selected rows.
  • Added "extensions.{1280606b-2510-4fe0-97ef-9b5a22eafe30}.work_around_mozilla_addon_sdk_bug" preference to allow user to disable the early loading of the Session Prompt window and load it like it did prior to 0.7.9.
  • Log private browsing autostart setting.
  • Version 0.7.9.1.1-signed 505.9 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

  • Fixed issue where Session Manager's crash recovery handling would not work if user set the browser to clear the browser history on exit.
  • Fix for wrong EOL character being used in OS X.
  • Changed the keyboard modifier for opening selected window/tabs in Session Manager load session menu from CTRL+click to ALT+click.
  • Added ability to select multiple tabs in Session Manager load session menu by using CTRL+click and/or Shift+click combinations. Use the toggle selection button to toggle the checkmarks for the selected rows.
  • Added "extensions.{1280606b-2510-4fe0-97ef-9b5a22eafe30}.work_around_mozilla_addon_sdk_bug" preference to allow user to disable the early loading of the Session Prompt window and load it like it did prior to 0.7.9.
  • Log private browsing autostart setting.
  • Version 0.7.9.1pre20120625 505.9 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    • Remove change made to work around Roboform toolbar missing problem as it was causing Session Manager to improperly prompt for sessions on browser restart.
    • Added "extensions.{1280606b-2510-4fe0-97ef-9b5a22eafe30}.work_around_mozilla_addon_sdk_bug" preference to allow user to disable the early loading of the Session Prompt window and load it like it did prior to 0.7.9.

    Version 0.7.9.1pre20120621 505.9 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    • Also do session prompt processing on "sessionstore-state-read" notification to try and work around issue with Session Manager's prompt preventing Roboform's toolbar from showing. "sessionstore-state-read" notification isn't sent if permanent private browsing mode is enabled or sessionstore.js is deleted.
    • When browser is set to clear history on exit, crash recovery doesn't work so have Session Manager handle restoring the current session on a crash instead of Firefox. Crash recovery will not work if user sets permanent private browsing or to never remember history. Firefox simply won't detect crashes in that case.
    • Log private browsing autostart setting.

    Version 0.7.9.1-signed 504.8 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

  • Removed support for Firefox 3.6. Sorry, but Mozilla isn't supported it anymore and neither am I. If you are using it, you really should upgrade.
  • Fixed issue in SeaMonkey where save window would have extra tabs in a newly opened window if there was more than one tab set as the home page.
  • Fixed issue in SeaMonkey where the favicon would frequently be missing for tabs with a favicon.
  • Work around for bug in Mozilla Add-on SDK (bug 752631) which causes Session Manager session prompt window to be blank at browser startup in some cases.
  • Don't do window processing for hidden window (please check that non-browser window Session Manager menus still work on OS X).
  • Version 0.7.9pre20120508 504.8 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    1. Put up session prompt prior to window starting to load. This works around compatiblity issues with the Mozilla Add-on SDK.
    2. Don't do window processing for hidden window (please check that non-browser window Session Manager menus still work on OS X).

    Version 0.7.9pre20120507 464.9 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 4.0 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    1. Removed support for Firefox 3.6
    2. Fixed issue in SeaMonkey where save window would have extra tabs in a newly opened window if there was more than one tab set as the home page.
    3. Fixed issue in SeaMonkey where the favicon would frequently be missing for tabs with a favicon.
    4. Dirty work around for bug in Mozilla Add-on SDK which prevents Session Manager window from displaying at browser startup (work on better fix).

    Version 0.7.8.1.1-signed 512.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    Fixed regression in 0.7.8 with auto-save sessions not loading on startup when user chooses to restore previous browsing session.

    From version 0.7.8:

    • Additions:
      • Added hidden preference to prevent using "Splitmenu" element in Session Manager menus for people having problems with menu. Set it to true to use normal menus: extensions.{1280606b-2510-4fe0-97ef-9b5a22eafe30}.no_splitmenu
      • Log any errors that occur when opening Session Manager window.
    • Fixes:
      • The "Do not replace pinned app tabs" and "Restore hidden tabs" options will no longer be hidden in Firefox 10 and up.
      • Fixed error that occurs on startup when Session Manager is set to restore previous browsing session and user chooses to not save a backup session when quitting.
      • Fixed issue with loading last saved auto-save session when user chooses to save and restore the previous browsing session and an auto-save session was open when shutting down.
      • Fixed bug where when Session Manager was correcting a session, the resulting "corrected" session file could also be corrupt (session data appended to group name) and prevent sessions from displaying. Also fix existing corrupted session files.
      • Fix for issue where search would temporarily stop working.
      • Fixed regression that would cause auto-save sessions set to save periodically to not do so.
      • Fixed issue with selected window/tab indexes potentially being wrong when loading part of a session.
      • Added a work around for bug in Firefox which causes tab grouping to get out of whack when loading sessions on top of existing tab groups. It seems to work when loading a single window, but I have seen some issue when loading multiple windows (in Firefox 7, Firefox 10 appears to work better). More work will be required, unless Firefox is fixed.
      • If the last closed/saved session was an auto-save session, that session would always be loaded even if it wasn't selected to be loaded.
    • Changes:
      • When naming sessions no longer treat session names as case insensitve. This allows renaming sessions when changing the case of a letter(s) in a session name.
      • Removed SQL memory cache as just keep SQL file in memory since that's just as fast and uses the same amount of memory (or less). Do cache the decrypted data in memory if the SQL file is encrypted. That speeds up access since otherwise the data needs to be decrypted each time it's read.
      • Disable the cache button and checkbox when the cache file is being built, rebuilt or "deleted". Prevents user from clicking the button while cache change is in progress, which would result in an error.
      • Do not delete the sql cache file unless it is corrupted. Instead simply clear it out when it's not needed. This will allow other stuff to be stored in the sql file.
      • Changed "Reload All Restored Windows" option text to "Bypass cache when restoring sessions", since that's what it actually does.

    Version 0.7.8.1pre20111029 512.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    Fixed regression with auto-save sessions not loading on startup when user chooses to restore previous browsing session.

    Version 0.7.8pre20111024 512.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    • Fixed: If the last closed/saved session was an auto-save session, that session would always be loaded even if it wasn't selected to be loaded.
    • Added hidden preference to prevent using "Splitmenu" element in Session Manager menus for people having problems with menu. Set it to true to use normal menus: extensions.{1280606b-2510-4fe0-97ef-9b5a22eafe30}.no_splitmenu

    Version 0.7.8pre20111015 512.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

  • If session table doesn't exist in SQL file and not creating it, don't open sql database. This should fix the addition delete session errors.
  • Version 0.7.8pre20111014 512.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    Fixed error that would occur when deleting files if the SQL cache was disabled and the SQL cache file did not exist.

    Version 0.7.8pre20111012 512.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    • Fixed bug where when Session Manager was correcting a session, the resulting "corrected" session file could also be corrupt (session data appended to group name) and prevent sessions from displaying. Also fix existing corrupted session files.
    • Log any errors that occur when opening Session Manager window.

    • Changed "Reload All Restored Windows" option text to "Bypass cache when restoring sessions", since that's what it actually does.
    • If can't read session in cacheSessions routine, ignore it instead of moving it to corrupted folder in case it can be fixed in getSessions.
    • Fix for issue where search would temporarily stop working.
    • Fixed regression that would cause auto-save sessions set to save periodically to not do so.
    • Fixed issue with selected window/tab indexes potentially being wrong when loading part of a session.
    • Added a work around for tab grouping getting out of whack when loading sessions on top of existing tab groups. It seems to work when loading a single window, but I have seen some issue when loading multiple windows (in Firefox 7, Firefox 10 appears to work better). More work will be required.

    Version 0.7.8pre20111002 511.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    • When naming sessions no longer treat session names as case insensitve. This allows renaming sessions when changing the case of a letter(s) in a session name.
    • The "Do not replace pinned app tabs" and "Restore hidden tabs" options will no longer be hidden in Firefox 10 and up.

    Version 0.7.7.1-signed 511.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    • Additions:
      • Session Manager now displays in the Firefox Tools menu on Macs (OS X) when no browser windows are open.
      • Option to cache session data on disk. When enabled Session Manager will create and maintain a sessionmanager.sqlite file in the browser profile folder. The file contains basic information about the session (name, group, etc) as well as the tab titles and urls of all the tabs in the session. Things like cookies, form data, etc are NOT store in this cache file. The cache file allows quickly searching for titles and urls in sessions as well as doing other actions that require quickly looking up all titles and urls in sessions. When disabled, the cache file is deleted and searching inside sessions won't work. There is also a refresh button which will rebuild the cache in case it gets out of sync somehow (which should never happen).
      • Added ability to search sessions for titles and url of tabs (including tab history). Only works if the cache option is checked in the Session Manager advanced options.
      • Preference to allow user to save sessions with the same name as one from an existing session. In other words, this allows duplicate session names.
      • Option to display session manager menus in a submenu or not. The option change takes effect immediately in all browser except Firefox 3.6.
      • The option to change the "browser.sessionstore.restore_hidden_tabs" preference is now available in the Saving and Restoring options window in Firefox 6 and up.
      • Ability to delete Deleted Sessions by control right clicking and restoring without closing menu by middle clicking.
      • Added an option to backup the current session periodically. The setting that controls the number of backup sessions to keep applies here as well.
      • Keyboard shortcut for opening session folder.
    • Fixes:
      • Fixed the Clear Privacy functionality for Session Manager in SeaMonkey.
      • Fixed an issue where renaming a session, sometimes the old session name would still show in the Session Manager window along with the new name.
      • Fixed bug 23929 - Autosave and window sessions open when entering private browsing mode, will be restored when exiting private browsing mode.
      • Fixed a number of other issues with going into private browsing mode with window sessions open. Namely that the window sessions would still show as being open although they weren't and that the window sessions were not always saved.
      • Fixed issue where if shutting down with an autosave session open and Session Manager is set to prompt with last session pre-selected at startup, it would select an older backup session.
      • Fixed issue where pre-selected session in Session Manager window at startup might not be visible. The window will now scroll to the pre-selected session.
      • Fixed regression with restoring window sessions when loading backup or crashed session at startup.
      • Fixed issue where context menus would break when certain specific add-ons (and only those add-ons) are installed in Firefox 4 and up.
      • When removing items from closed menu correctly hide unused items.
      • Right clicking closed window/tab menu items was incorrectly restoring them.
      • Worked around issue where if the option to treat closing the last browser window as shutting down as set and the option to prompt for a session at start up, then if the browser restored the previous window, the selected tab would change to "about:blank".
      • If user goes into private browsing mode with an active window and/or auto session open and then changes that session's group, use that group when the session is restored after the user exits private browsing mode instead of the old group.
      • If user goes into private browsing mode with an active window and/or auto session open and then deletes the session file or renames it, don't restore that session when exiting private browsing mode or restarting the browser.
      • Issue where autosave checkbox wouldn't update correctly in save window when the "...replace the existing session name with the one in the text box" option was selected.
      • If user quits browser with autosave and window sessions opened and then when prompted at startup, chooses to resume the autosave session, the window sessions were now resumed as well. This matches the way it works when restoring a non-autosave backup session.
      • Issue where renaming of a session set to resume on startup, could result in that session no longer being resumed.
      • Logging level of "Error" was missing from the Logging options page and was disabled by default, meaning errors weren't logged. It has been added to the Logging options page and enabled it by default (when logging is enabled).
      • Renaming or deleting a group named "Backup Sessions" will no longer affect sessions in the fixed "Backup Sessions" group. A user created "Backup Sessions" should never exist, but fixed this in case user somehow manages to create one.
      • In SeaMonkey, undo submenu or items would not display in Session Manager toolbar button menu, if closed menu was removed from toolbar.
      • When searching, the selected session will remain selected as long as that session is in the search results. Multiple selection of sessions are cleared when searching (deleting only).
      • Fixed label in restore column showing wrong value at times.
      • Don't disable accept button when clicking window/tab tree when not saving.
      • Bug 24245 - Don't restore app tabs at startup if option is set not to and user starts browser by opening a web page from an external application.
      • Fixed issue with Windows and tabs in Session Manager save window getting out of sync in SeaMonkey when opening tabs and windows.
      • Fixed issue with tab labels not always getting set in Session Manager save window in SeaMonkey when opening tabs and windows.
      • When saving windows, Session Manager window is no longer modal. Make sure to keep track of the window you are saving since the Session Manager window can now lose focus.
      • Fixed issue where startup processing would halt if there were no sessions.
      • Fixed an issue when caching session files into memory which could cause the timer used to cache sessions to be garbage collected and stop firing. This would cause Session Manager's startup processing to fail to complete.
    • Changes:
      • Under direction from Mozilla, I removed an insecure method of reading sessions saved under older versions of Session Manager. This may cause any sessions saved under Session Manager 0.6.3.5 and earlier to fail. Session Manager will try and correct these files, but if it can't you will need to load them under version 0.7.6.1 and resave them.
      • The "leave this window open" checkbox is now saved on a per-mode (save, load, etc) basis.
      • Options and Open Session Folder menu items now display at the top of the menu when the Session Manager menu items are not displayed in a submenu.
      • Don't allow naming a session with the same name that is used for backup sessions.
      • The caching process at startup is now done sequentially instead of simultaneously. This should cut down on the disk thrashing when starting the browser with a lot of sessions.
      • Added some changes to the encryption change processing to make it more efficient and user friendly.
      • Previously if the user tried to exit the browser while an encryption change was in progress, Session Manager would put up a warning tell the user to wait and prevent the shut down. That's not very user friendly. Now the encryption change processing will halt when the browser shuts down and resume when it's started again. This also has the effect of checking for sessions that are not encrypted or decrypted per the user preference and updating them accordingly.
      • Startup processing (memory caching, encryption checking and SQL disk cache maintenance) no longer occurs immediately after the browser windows have been loaded. Instead it will occur when the system has been idle for a 20 seconds or until 10 minutes has passed since the browser startup, which ever comes first. Also this processing is done every 24 hours when the system becomes idle.
      • When user enables logging to error console, enable the error console in Firefox and show Session Manager chrome errors.
      • In Firefox 8 and up, the preference to specify the number of concurrent tabs to load ("browser.sessionstore.max_concurrent_tabs") was replaced by a preference to restore tabs on demand ("browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand"). This change is now reflected in the Session Manager options.
      • Session Manager will now save multiple replaced browsing sessions instead of just one. There is no limit on the the number of replaced sessions saved, but they will be removed when the browser is shut down.

    Version 0.7.7pre20110918 511.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    Change idle timeout to 20 seconds and background timer to 10 minutes.
    Work around issue where Firefox might not send SessionStore window update message to Session Manager (which currently kicks off startup processing).

    Version 0.7.7pre20110915 515.1 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    When searching, if a user enters an invalid regular expression, treat the search as a regular string instead of a regular expression.

    Version 0.7.7pre20110914 515.1 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    • When user enables logging to error console, enable the error console in Firefox and show Session Manager chrome errors.
    • Fixed issue where startup processing would halt if there were no sessions.
    • In Firefox 8 and up, the preference to specify the number of concurrent tabs to load ("browser.sessionstore.max_concurrent_tabs") was replaced by a preference to restore tabs on demand ("browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand"). This change is now reflected in the Session Manager options.
    • Startup processing (memory caching, encryption checking and SQL disk cache maintenance) no longer occurs immediately after the browser windows have been loaded. Instead it will occur when the system has been idle for a minute or until 15 has passed since the browser startup, which ever comes first. Also this processing is done every 24 hours when the system becomes idle.
    • Fixed an issue when caching session files into memory which could cause the timer used to cache sessions to be garbage collected and stop firing. This would cause Session Manager's startup processing to fail to complete.
    • Changes related to the SQL disk cache:
      • When reading the SQL disk cache into memory (caching) on startup, if the data is encrypted and can't be decrypted (i.e, user hasn't entered the master password yet), cache the encrypted data into memory and decrypt it later as needed.
      • Session Manager now updates the SQL memory cache when updating the SQL disk cache. This speeds up reading the cached data since the the data is already in memory and won't need to be read from the disk.
      • When building the SQL disk cache, Session Manager now uses a timer to prevent hanging the GUI when processing large and/or encrypted sessions files. Other optimizations were also added, but noticeable pauses can still occur for very large encrypted sessions.
      • When verifying the SQL disk cache, if an error is found, only the changed items are updated or removed. This is more efficient and faster than the old method of completely rebuilding the SQL disk cache file on any detected error.
    • Changes related to search for sessions:
      • Fixed issue with master password prompt displaying after the first keypress when searching for sessions when encryption is enabled and the master password had not been entered yet. The prompt will now display after the user stops typing.
      • The SQL cache data will no longer be read the moment the Session Manager window opens. Instead it will be read when the user starts searching for a session.
      • Keyword filters, similar to those used by Firefox itself, can be used when searching for sessions in the Session Manager window. Session Manager will use the same default keywords that Firefox uses. If no shortcut is used, session names, group names, tab titles and tab urls are searched. Tab history is not searched by default as that tends to return too many results with no indication of why the sessions were returned. In addition, searches are case insensitive unless the search term is surrounded by quotes, in which case searches are case sensitive. The defaults keyword fileters are:
        • * = Only search for session names
        • + = Only search for session group names
        • # = Only search for tab titles in sessions
        • @ = Only search for tab urls in sessions
        • ^ = Only Search for tab titles and urls in tab history data. This does not search active tabs, only tab history. Using this key shortcut is the only way to search tab history as it is not searched b default.

    Version 0.7.7pre20110906 511.0 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    • Added ability to search sessions for titles and url of tabs (including tab history). Only works if the cache option is checked in the Session Manager advanced options.
    • When searching, the selected session will remain selected as long as that session is in the search results. Multiple selection of sessions are cleared when searching (deleting only).
    • The caching process at startup is now done sequentially instead of simultaneously. This should cut down on the disk thrashing when starting the browser with a lot of sessions.
    • Added some changes to the encryption change processing to make it more efficient and user friendly:
      • There is now a slight delay between processing session files. In addition the next session file won't be read, until the previous one has been written. This should cut down on disk thrashing when changing the encryption setting as well as make the browser more responsive.
      • Previously if the user tried to exit the browser while an encryption change was in progress, Session Manager would put up a warning tell the user to wait and prevent the shut down. That's not very user friendly. Now the encryption change processing will halt when the browser shuts down and resume when it's started again. This also has the effect of checking for sessions that are not encrypted or decrypted per the user preference and updating them accordingly.
    • Encrypting session data, now encrypts SQL cache. This significantly increases the amount of time it takes to create the cache file. It also slightly increases the read time, but memory caching minimizes the effect of that.
    • Added an option to backup the current session periodically. The setting that controls the number of backup sessions to keep applies here as well.
    • Fixed an issue that can cause toolbar button menu to temporarily stop working when switching between showing Session Manager items in submenu or not.
    • Fixed label in restore column showing wrong value at times.
    • Fixed install.rdf utf-8 issue.
    • Moved all Session Manager objects from com.morac to com.morac.SessionManagerAddon object

    Version 0.7.7pre20110826 497.7 kB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.6 und neuer, SeaMonkey 2.1 und neuer

    • Fixed issue where load, group, rename and delete menu items weren't disabled in the Tools menu when there are no sessions.
    • Fixed issue where upgrading from a 0.7.7pre version might prevent Session Manager window from opening correctly. This will reset the "Keep window open" option (sorry).

    • Additions:
      • Option to cache session data on disk. When enabled Session Manager will create and maintain a sessionmanager.sqlite file in the browser profile folder. The file contains basic information about the session (name, group, etc) as well as the tab titles and urls of all the tabs in the session. Things like cookies, form data, etc are NOT store in this cache file. The cache file allows quickly searching for titles and urls in sessions as well as doing other actions that require quickly looking up all titles and urls in sessions. When disabled, the cache file is deleted and searching inside sessions won't work. Currently when enabled, it displays how long it takes to cache all sessions, in order to determine how efficient it is. There is also a refresh button which will rebuild the cache in case it gets out of sync somehow.
      • Preference to allow user to save sessions with the same name as one from an existing session. In other words, this allows duplicate session names.
      • Option to display session manager menus in a submenu or not. The option change takes effect immediately in all browser except Firefox 3.6.
      • The option to change the "browser.sessionstore.restore_hidden_tabs" preference is now available in the Saving and Restoring options window in Firefox 7 and up.
      • Ability to delete Deleted Sessions by control right clicking and restoring without closing menu by middle clicking.
      • Keyboard shortcut for opening session folder.
    • Fixes:
      • Regression in 0.7.7pre20110811 that broken the session and closed menus on Macs (again). I also rewrote the code to be more efficient.
      • With the changes in 0.7.7pre20110807 to no longer user the evalInSandbox function to attempt to parse sessions files that don't contain valid JSON, session files saved under Session Manager 0.6.3 had a good chance of generating an error when attempt to load them or view the windows and tabs in them. Session Manager now attempts to fix these "invalid JSON" sessions so that they are valid. Fixed sessions are resaved when viewed in the Session Manager window. In my testing it successfully fixed 8 out of 8 bad sessions. If a session can't be fixed, it will need to be opened under Session Manager 0.7.6.1 and manually re-saved.
      • When removing items from closed menu correctly hide unused items.
      • Right clicking closed window/tab menu items was incorrectly restoring them.
      • Worked around issue where if the option to treat closing the last browser window as shutting down as set and the option to prompt for a session at start up, then if the browser restored the previous window, the selected tab would change to "about:blank".
      • If user goes into private browsing mode with an active window and/or auto session open and then changes that session's group, use that group when the session is restored after the user exits private browsing mode instead of the old group.
      • If user goes into private browsing mode with an active window and/or auto session open and then deletes the session file or renames it, don't restore that session when exiting private browsing mode or restarting the browser.
      • Issue where autosave checkbox wouldn't update correctly in save window when the "...replace the existing session name with the one in the text box" option was selected.
      • If user quits browser with autosave and window sessions opened and then when prompted at startup, chooses to resumethe autosave session, the window sessions were now resumed as well. This matches the way it works when restoring a non-autosave backup session.
      • Issue where renaming of a session set to resume on startup, could result in that session no longer being resumed.
      • Logging level of "Error" was missing from the Logging options page and was disabled by default, meaning errors weren't logged. It has been added to the Logging options page and enabled it by default (when logging is enabled).
      • Renaming or deleting a group named "Backup Sessions" will no longer affect sessions in the fixed "Backup Sessions" group. A user created "Backup Sessions" should never exist, but fixed this in case user somehow manages to create one.
      • In SeaMonkey, undo submenu or items would not display in Session Manager toolbar button menu, if closed menu was removed from toolbar.
    • Changes:
      • The "leave this window open" checkbox is now saved on a per-mode (save, load, etc) basis.
      • Options and Open Session Folder menu items now display at the top of the menu when the Session Manager menu items are not displayed in a submenu.
      • Don't allow naming a session with the same name that is used for backup sessions.
    • Developmental Changes:
      • Auto and Window sessions now key off the filename rather than the session name. This allows having multiple auto and window sessions with the same name.
      • Register for "sessionstore-browser-state-restored" notification in component. Not using it currently, just logging it.
      • Don't unregister "sessionstore-window-state-restored" notification after receiving it. This prevents exception when shutting down browser and also may be useful for Mac users.
      • Moved popupset to top of sessionmanager.xul file to prevent context menus from breaking when certain specific add-ons (and only those add-ons) are installed in Firefox 4 and up. Not sure why this happened or why moving it fixed it, but it does.

    • Converted a number of "oncommand" and "onclick" attributes set in code to use addEventListener as per direction from Mozilla. Optimized the code while I was at it.
    • Fixed the Clear Privacy functionality for Session Manager in SeaMonkey.
    • Some fixes for Mac OS X with no windows open (still have a ways to go though).
    • Fixed an issue where renaming a session, sometimes the old session name would still show in the Session Manager window along with the new name.
    • Fixed bug 23929 - Autosave and window sessions open when entering private browsing mode, will be restored when exiting private browsing mode.
    • Fixed a number of other issues with going into private browsing mode with window sessions open. Namely that the window sessions would still show as being open although they weren't and that the window sessions were not always saved.
    • Fixed issue where if shutting down with an autosave session open and Session Manager is set to prompt with last session pre-selected at startup, it would select an older backup session.
    • Fixed issue where pre-selected session in Session Manager window at startup might not be visible. The window will now scroll to the pre-selected session.
    • Fixed regression with restoring window sessions when loading backup or crashed session at startup.

    • Do not use splitmenu menu items in Session Manager menus under Mac OS X as it doesn't work there. (This is in 0.7.6.1).
    • Fixed issue with Windows and tabs in Session Manager save window getting out of sync in SeaMonkey when opening tabs and windows.
    • Fixed issue with tab labels not always getting set in Session Manager save window in SeaMonkey when opening tabs and windows.
    • When saving windows, Session Manager window is no longer modal. Make sure to keep track of the window you are saving since the Session Manager window can now lose focus.
    • Made the following changes to satisfy Mozilla reviewer:
      • Removed DOM Mutation events. These are depreciated because they cause browser performance issues. So I changed the code to not use them.
      • Removed global namespace vairables from unused sessionexplorer.js code. Code isn't used, but will prevent validation errors when uploading addon
        to Moziila.
      • Removed some unneeded setTimeout functions to lessen the amount of validation violations.
      • Changed "undo-button-tooltip" DOM node to "sessionmanager-undo-button-tooltip".
      • No longer use "Function" constructor in session_convert.jsm.
      • Removed insecure method of reading sessions saved under older versions of Session Manager. This may cause any sessions saved under Session Manager 0.6.3.5 and earlier to fail to load so make sure you don't have any old sessions or if you do, load and resave them.
