No mobile usability? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Session manager is a very useful and versatile tool. I really appreciate using it for my desktop.
BUT: I really really would want to use it on my Android devices, too. Now unfortunately, although listed in the Android addons section, I cannot install it onto any of my android devices. It can be downloaded properly, but the dialog to allow installation afterwards is missing...
Anyone able to solve that?
Session recovery issue after Firefox 49.0 update Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As a long time user it's been a great favorite add-on because of its recovery capabilities. Unfortunately, it no longer recovers saved sessions since Firefox 49.0 update [Running: MAC EL CAPITAN 10.11.6 (15G1004)] . Recommended fixes have not worked so far, but, will keep trying.
e10s ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It seems it doesn't support e10s but since e10s is disabled on my profile, I couldn't say if it still properly works despite that.
I hope it will be compliant with future firefox release. I love it. Do you plan to update it?
Saves my life Rated 5 out of 5 stars
but it needs some modernisation. Great addon.
Good enough Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The manager provides enough tools required to deal with sessions! Who wants more?
Not stable, can't load tabs from session correctly Rated 2 out of 5 stars
This extension was good while ago (few backward versions). Nowadays, there is a common problem with restoring tabs into session. For example, I've got 50 tabs opened, and I want to append to current window different session with another 40 tabs, a these are following problems:
1. It takes time
2. Lot of these restored tabs are blank, many of them appearing as 1 URL per tab. Which cause I've got 40 tabs with 1 URL each.
3. When I want to restart Firefox and Session Manager window will popup and when I'll start browsing and opening few tabs and firefox will suddenly crash with Session Manager window prompted the extension will not save current session at all. There will be session with empty tabs.
Very dissapointing extension.
Супер! Super! Fine! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Очень нужное приложение. Как бывает досадно после слета мозилы не увидеть свои накопленные тяжким трудом вкладки.... Слететь может от распухания в оперативе до 3 гиг либо из-за открытого окна в фоне... которое потом и показывается при открытии.
Можно, конечно и штатно - Добавить все вкладки в закладки... Но здесь проще намного.
Пользуйтесь и будете довольны!
не работает, ужасное расширение Rated 1 out of 5 stars
ничего не сохраняет. закрыл мозилу. открыл - новое окно. браузер не предложил восстановить открытые вкладки и данное расширение также ничего не предложило. даже не видно было. что оно запустилось. после перезапуска вручную показал список сессий для восстановления. Но ни одну не восстановить - они с ошибками и на этом конец. дополнение лишь вводит в заблуждение давая ложную надежду, что оно что-то сохраняет...
Great, stable, but ONE bug to fix Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love it, it's mostly stable, more stable than IE which will often just lose your tabs - IE is unacceptable!
ONE problem, PLEASE fix: When memory usage gets high, it can't save & you get error "The session/window data is corrupted: undefined(undefined)". And it does not recover, even when you close some tabs & get the memory usage down. It restores the last-saved tabs, but you often lose hours of tabs. MANY people have this same problem, it is all over forums. Looking at 3 windows, maybe 20 tabs per window. I'm a developer & I suggest the software needs to have an internal "reset" function to rewrite the session/window data when this occurs. This should be relatively easy fix, and would turn the product from almost-perfect, to 100% perfect. Thank you.
It's very useful. Congratualtions. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
But I have a problem with it - my FF often crashes, but I do NOT want to recover crashed sessions. Unfortunately every time SM shows up - even when I do not want that. Also it slows down the restart. I set the settings trying to prevent it:
"startup & shutdown|at startup always load the following session: none"
"saving & restoring| number of older (crashed) session backups to keep:0"
To no avail. What I've been doing wrong? Is this a bug? Please help.
Even better than I thought... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Accidentally closed a window with 60+ tabs/groups.
Installed Session Manager. Recovered window.
Absolute life saver - required install on every Firefox I have.
Problem with multiple windows Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great extension, but with one major flaw - keeps messing window order every time the session is loaded. The first window often stays first, but all the rest always opens in random order.
Peace of mind, finally Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I never knew when Firefox would suddenly lose my last session tabs. Causes? Crashes, putting your computer in sleep mode many times in a row, or seemingly simple bad luck could lose the last session's tabs. Those losses did not happen very often, but even a once-in-a-while disaster was too much when 100-or-so tabs need to remain available. Session Manager saves a session in a file and a folder of your choosing. Since that file can be used on another computer, the same set of Firefox tabs can be used there as well. Each tab's backward and forward history is also saved! I need to donate. Now I'll be looking for a similar add-on that saves bookmarks and the deep structure of Firefox's bookmarks toolbar.
Very Reliable Rated 5 out of 5 stars
In my opinion, Session Manager is a must-have add-on for anyone whose browsing style involves queuing up a large number of tabs on a regular basis.
I've used this add-on for a little over four years now. l got it initially when I was experiencing a lot of crashes. I'd always set Firefox to restore previous tabs and windows, but it turned out Firefox's native crash recovery typically doesn't restore pre-crash tabs. I'm sure that's fine for some users, but it was totally unacceptable for my purposes.
Session Manager solved that problem and has worked without issue ever since, even when saving sessions with around a hundred tabs open. I rarely use it for anything other than crash recovery, but I do appreciate the way one can group saved sessions by category and set them to autosave as well.
I can't imagine using FF without it anymore. Thanks, dev.
(using FF 47.0.1, extension version 0.8.1.12)
excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
i have had it for a few years now and it has never disappointed me. it always works like intended. its great, simple and does what it supposed to do.
1st class, could not live without Rated 5 out of 5 stars
one reason to stay with FF.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
please fix the "New Tab" problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars
"It's restoring almost all of my tabs with "New Tab" instead of the actual page, so it's mostly become useless to me."
My problem as well, and now I seem to be getting extra new tabs. For awhile I have to disable this and go back to either TabMixPlus or Firefox session handling.
btw, I don't mind when the tabs are not open (you have to hit the tab to reactivate it) as it probably is saving memory at the time and I can open them as needed.
I plan on trying again in a week or two, as this extension has been a keeper over the years.
Still works how it should Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Did Firefox crash again and it can't restore the last session? This add on can!
You have to close Firefox but keep/ save all your tabs for later? With this add on it's possible.
The only thing that I recommed is that to set the default sorting order of the sessions to "by date (ASC)" instead of "alphabetic". You can set that via setting > general > display
Used to be great! Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Like the last review, it used to work a treat.
Now, it just opens pages with the address in the bar but doesn't open the page! I have to open each tab so the page will load.
With 30 or 40 tabes that take a while!
I'll give it a week to update and then it's removed and I'll find something that works.
Shame, it was a great addon. . .
